Great Value

Dornoch is a great place to spend a relaxing holiday at. The only downside is the very long journey, but we have been before and expected to arrive late (9 pm). The hotel has lots of stairs, but does benefit from a lift. The food was of the usual great choice and filling. Evening coffee or tea was served in the ample lounge area and the bar was well stocked and the evening entertainment was good. The staff were excellent throughout and the trips out informative as was the driver (Simon).

We really enjoyed our holiday here. The journey, though very long, was through some breath taking scenery. Hotel was nice if a little tired & in need of updating but was warm & clean, Food was ok but some meals had strange combinations of veg/sides. Our waiter Peter T was friendly & very helpful & our drivers Tom & George were entertaining & very informative on the excursions. Entertainment was ok. Would recommend this holiday. Great value for money, looking forward to our next Shearings break.

Dornoch Break

We had a break in this wonderful part of the Highlands. From the word go everything was excellent! Our driver George was a book of knowledge about everywhere we went. Nothing was too much trouble. A credit to Shearings! The hotel and staff were very pleasant and helpful, they couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was perfect. Our room was lovely with a beautiful view. The food was very nice, also a variety every day, we had a wonderful time. Thank you, will be going again!!

Dornoch Holiday

We have just returned from mon-fri break at this hotel. Apart from the terrible coach we had to be driven up in which definitely was not "executive travel" as it said on our booking we had excellent time. The hotel is clean and food is beautiful, the trips we went on were excellent and made even better because of our drivers George and Tom, both of them a credit to Shearings!

Great Break and Value

We have been with Shearings now for quite a few years the value of these trips are so good, we had a brilliant time, the staff could not do enough for us, the food was great, the weather was great and the coach trips were fabulous. The drivers were brilliant. Like most of the Shearings Hotels they could do with an update on the decor but we found the hotel very clean and comfortable. The service from all the staff was quick and very professional. Would go again. Thanks

Our First Shearings

Having read the reviews of this hotel - especially Trip Advisor - I thought that it was going to be a letdown. Not at all. The travel arrangements were faultless and the hotel a pleasant surprise. Yes, the decor could do with updating, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was good with plenty of variety (even for me as a diabetic). The staff were excellent, friendly and courteous. Our drivers, Steve and Tom, were both careful and considerate to passengers and other road users.

Great Value

Fantastic value for money holiday, Rooms were clean and warm. Great menu and excellent service from all the staff. Days out were superb and the driver (John) was very informative. Brochure descriptions were spot on. Would highly recommend this holiday to anyone.

Stayed here as part of a Shearings holiday, arrived at 7 pm on the Saturday night after a very tiring two day journey. The staff here are very friendly and efficient, good food, good service. If it weren't for the journey and the awful overnight hotel I'd be back. If you are travelling from the south check how long it takes to get here, and where the outward overnight stop is.

Just got back tonight and praise the staff enough, the three drivers we had, Tim, George and Tom were all excellent and as for Tom's jokes and poetry, well they are something else. Keep it up
