Our group rented all thee rooms for three nights in the Donan House during our September 2016 Scotland vacation. Of the nine B&Bs we stayed in during three weeks in Scotland and England, Donan House had no rival as far as the view was concerned and was a close second for the accommodation. Ahhh! - the view! Eilean Donan Castle...

This is a superb high spec B & B. Beautiful view of Eilean Donan Castle from the room window. Privacy, comfort, cleanliness, great breakfast, most importantly, perfect hosts!!!

What a lovely little village is Dornie! This hotel is literally just across the way from Castle Eilean Donan, and perfectly situated for visiting the area. We had a lovely little walk into town to find an ATM (this B&B only takes cash, which is a bit hard when you're traveling from another country). There was no ATM in town,...

Only stayed one night but not disappointed. Room really nice and view perfect. Didn't cater for dietary requirements - gluten free. Even though a coop down the road and notice given. That said didn't spoil our stay! Nice pub down the road

An excellent B and B, very well appointed and very welcoming. Breakfast was first class and rooms are of a high standard, thoroughly recommend this stop over. Directly opposite Eilean Donan castle (nearest b&b). Pic a view from b/room window!

We used two of the rooms. Both had a very good en-suite bathroom, a double bed as well as a single bed. Beautifully decorated, impeccably clean and both with a lovely view- one of the castle, the other of the river and the garden on the other side. There is a third bedroom also with a view of the river....
