An excellent choice for the aspiring golfer on business who travels to this location. Rooms of a very high standard with specular views of the course and sea loch. Parking was plentiful with free Wi-Fi within the premises for guests. Room service meals, one of the best I have encountered in my travels of the UK. Prompt service, with a...

This is a lovely hotel. The rooms, the staff, the dining experience – everything was absolutely spot on. Someone with excellent taste and an eye for detail is presiding over the Royal Golf Hotel. It was not as golfers but refugees from a nearby establishment that we found ourselves here. From the moment that we stepped into Reception we were...

Came for three nights at the end of April and had a large room on the second floor. Well furnished, comfortable couch, writing desk and modern en-suite with super deep bath that helped thaw us out following a breezy walk along the shore. Breakfasts were excellent, seafood, cooked, fresh fruit, cereals etc etc etc. We will return, the staff were...

This is an outstanding property that sits along Royal Dornoch's first fairway. The staff did an excellent job of accommodating our group of 4 golfers. Breakfasts there were excellent and the dinner we had was even better. Just a great golf hotel and reasonably priced.

Hotel couldn't be closer to Royal Dornoch golf course. Our twin rooms were spacious and clean. The ensuit had been refurbished with a huge bath with both drench and hand shower. The towels were fluffy and the bath towels were huge. Breakfast was excellent with a varied choice. Whilst we didn't have dinner here other guests told us the steaks...

On a golf trip based from Dornoch and staying at the Royal made it all the better- very comfortable, ideal spot overlooking the Royal Dornoch Championship Course. Friendly staff, good food, a great range of drinks to savour - good value for a keen group of golfers! And we were so lucky with the weather!!

Visited recently as one of three couples on a glorious March weekend. Was well above expectations having read some of the reviews last year. Enjoyed a lovely refurbished suite on the 2nd Floor overlooking the 1st Tee. Staff are clearly a bit inexperienced given it was so early in the season. However they were lovely and there was a lot...

My husband and I spent 2 nights in a Master Room in mid-October. The hotel is very nice, and in a great location right along the coast. Our Master room was spacious, comfortable and clean.
