Dornoch open once again was superb course was testing and accomadation looking onto first tee at the royal golf is golf nirvana. Restrictions aside due to covid19 we had single occupancy rooms magic as most of the party i was with snore like mad and i had 2 wonderful nights not listening to them.The staff in the dining room were super friendly and certainly enjoyed their job well done.
We stayed here for one night on our NC500 trip. On arrival, we had our temperature taken by the staff and all being fine, were allowed to enter. Our room was along a corridor and up the stairs on the first floor. The room was fine and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom had a lovely large shower. I realise it’s an old hotel but it definitely needs a facelift especially around the communal areas, walls etc. We decided to have dinner in the hotel but unfortunately hubby’s choice was not good. He chose the venison casserole which we would have expected to be tender, but unfortunately it was not so he asked them to replace with another meal. The young waiter said he would take it to the kitchen to ‘check’! Overall the stay was acceptable for one night.
We had a lovely friendly welcome into the hotel and had a couple of drinks in the bar area which was lovely. Our room however was down a really tiny corridor along from the kitchen which meant we kept bumping into staff with no social distancing. Our room wasn’t overly clean (hairs in shower tray and gritty), paint was peeling off the wall etc and just looked generally tired. Getting past that, the toilet flushed by itself all night, the light shines heavily under the door so we put a towel down to stop this. There was also a lot of noise from staff and the kitchen so overall not a good sleep in this room.
We stayed at the Royal Dornoch Hotel for one night on a family trip. Everything absolutely excellent. I had a great room (Ross Suite) with the most fantastic views over Royal Dornoch Golf Course and the beach. Fantastic! Friendly welcome on arrival. Room spotlessly clean and COVID-19 rules observed. Bar staff friendly and good service. The restaurant is 1st class - nice menu, lots of choice and meals freshly prepared at dinner & breakfast. Staff friendly and efficient. All first class and certainly highly recommended. Thank you to the hotel team.
Visited the hotel over Friday and Saturday 18th and 19th. There was six of us and hotel staff were great and when we went to the bar the manager asked us to sit at separate tables so we would be adhering to covid guide lines. We noticed this woman who walked by and gave our group a very disparaging look and then she left a very bad review on this site stating that the hotel did not follow guidelines. This type of review can be very destructive in this environment as the hotel and its staff are trying their best to let patrons have a pleasant stay at the same time trying to keep patrons safe. If Mairi H does not feel safe coming out of her house and mixing with other people without leaving this type of review then she should stay in and be a keyboard warrior from the safety of her computer room. The staff were excellent and friendly and I would recommend anyone to visit.…
