We arrived at tea time all ready to book in. Unfortunately I had booked for a month ahead, and hadn't even checked the confirmation emails the hotel had sent! But the young lady on reception pulled out all the stops to get us, and our two friends, ideal rooms - and arranged for a pot of tea for us at...

Brora is usually a place that you stop on the way to somewhere else. We believe that the Royal Marine Hotel is a destination in itself. The hotel is a short walk away from a lovely sandy beach, a picturesque harbour, golf course and a beautiful seaside town. The hotel was originally designed by Sir Robert Lorimer. The wooden arches,...

Stayed for 2 nights at start of March 2017. We have stayed twice before. Service from all staff was excellent throughout our stay and dinner on our first night was delicious. Breakfast was excellent both days with great service from the lady running the breakfast room. We are looking forward to returning at Easter.

Hotel was good although there were problems with the heating which the hotel did their best to sort but we were in the coldest part of the year. Catering was good and the staff were very helpful. The hotel was clean and kept smartly by the staff. In general the management of the hotel was good.

Nice setting, good value for money with friendly staff. Plenty to visit around the local area if you look and a nice setting for a quiet break away from everything. Didn't use the spa facilities however seemed to be a good range on offer and a decent pool next to the garden cafe.
