      The room was very small and the bed was basically wedged into a wall. As i arrived a little late, there was virtually nothing to eat. As Dornoch shuts down at approx. 18:00 I had to go to a chinese take-out to get food at 9:00. The staff was of little help. Probably a good hotels for families with children.

      I could not get assistance when I arrived. I would suggest that the staff that manage the restaurant do not also manage incoming guests.

      Location, breakfast room, breakfast.

      Walking through a public lounge to an unimpresive, unstaffed receptiop desk does not create a good first impression. Room was non-descript and reminded us of a mountain motel in the US, probably not of a standard one expects of a castle hotel.

      The fact that it was a Castle! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the room was clean, tidy and very comfortable. The general atmosphere was great.

      Loved staying at Dornoch Castle, will definitely stay there again sometime!

      Excellent location. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom clean. The garden area is lovely in good weather, I only wished we had more time to spend in the hotel.

      The room was rather hot as it faced the sun - perhaps a fan would have helped (I don't imagine that is a problem for more than a few weeks in the year!). No fridge. The carpet in the hallway leading to the room was badly stained. Some people may be put off with the Reception area being the in the public bar - if you have a confidential request to make of staff or if you have children perhaps this is not the ideal place for Reception.

      Old building, had atmosphere. TV and generous coffee/tea making facility. Wi fi available but only for half an hour.

      Residents lounge was uninviting and tired looking. Single bedroom was very small . Single glazed window. Noisy plumbing . Thin walls.

      Staff and location

      Expensive and old fashioned hotel.

      We stayed in the Hayloft and found this very good for a self catering holiday. It was situated close to the beach, castle and golf course.

      Friendliness of staff and food

      Poor standard of single room plus I was discouraged from using amex card although the hotel does accept amex

      As a lone traveller, the staff made me feel very welcome, comfortable and were very helpful. The location was also great!

      There was no phone in my room (the only room in the hotel without a phone), having said that, the hotel let me use their phone free of charge to call home!

      We had a lovely stay at Dornoch Castle, and would like to thank the staff for making us feel very welcome and relaxed, the food was beautiful

      The hotel was comfortable and the staff was nice.

      It's an old hotel and the price is too high for this.
