We were touring Scotland for a few days and decided on Dornoch for a one night stop. We called at The Bank House and were welcomed in and shown the rooms that were available. We decided on room 23 and wasn't disappointed. A lovely room, beautifully decorated with a wonderful rocking chair with stool. The bathroom had a jacuzzi bath,...

Beautiful house and a great room 21. Everything we wanted, even a fridge and wine glasses, unusual in a B & B. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal and fruit juice available each day. Ground coffee in a cafetiere served each morning on request. Irene and Paul were the perfect hosts and all at a...

I would always stay here as it is very comfortable, reasonably priced and Paul & Irene are such nice hosts. You can walk to dinner or golf and the rooms are quiet and large. Breakfast is great, with 6 cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt, and lots of cooked choices.

This B&B is absolutely stunning. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded into a most beautiful bedroom. So many original features with a decor to match. The bed was enormous and extremely comfortable. The en suite had both a shower and Jacuzzi. Breakfast was lovely as were the owners. The gentleman who owns the house was lovely company during breakfast...

Lovely traditional b&b with very clean and comfortable rooms and a pretty garden. Paul and Irene went over and above to ensure our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. Breakfast was lovely and would definitely stay here again. A very dog friendly b&b, even took our dog for a short stroll due to us being at a wedding reception, thanks again!...

Thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at this guest house, ideally situated in this pretty little place. The owners were very welcoming and we even got a free upgrade to a lovely big room on the front of the house with lovely corner bath. Delicious breakfast served in the stylish dining room of this delightful house. Highly recommended.

Stayed at The Bank House for 2 nights at the end of August. Our room was huge, clean and very comfy. Plenty room for our dog to pad about. Breakfast was excellent and with a communal breakfast table it was good to meet the other guests before the start of the day. Would thoroughly recommend if you are planning a...

This family run B&B has excellent rooms, the one we had would have been worthy of a grand hotel and was very comfortable with everything we needed. It was very well presented and furnished. Breakfast was very good and the portions more than adequate. The couple who run it were very hospitable, helpful, and looked after us very well.
