The Links House is the very finest golf house and small luxury hotel and destination that I have stayed at. Ever. And I have stayed at many. It surpasses even famed luxury hotels like Greywalls in Muirfield and Turnberry. I and we absolutely loved it! It was extraordinary. In every possible way. My wife and sister in law and I...

An intimate setting with elegance and comfort at every level. Wonderful atmosphere with a stunning art collection on display, and a well stocked library and Single Malt Bar. The restaurant served locally sourced food in true splendour. Service in both the hotel and restaurant was outstanding, with excellent service from the head waiter.

We booked a night at this hotel for our 10th wedding anniversary, to be combined with a round of golf at Royal Dornoch Championship Course. Bit of a risk as we had never visited before, but one that really paid off. What can we say - the courtesy, attention to detail and all round enthusiasm of the staff were exemplary....

Having returned just last week from several days at the Links House, we are still basking in the perfect Scottish Highlands experience. Every room, from the dining room, library, living room and bedroom, is elegantly appointed and enormously comfortable. We especially enjoyed relaxing by the fires in the living room and library, while tasting the fine selections of whisky from...

We were driving the NC500 and this hotel was in the right location for our drive north. We stayed for one night and had dinner in the restaurant. The quality of the room can't be faulted, the location was perfect for the golf course and the service of staff absolutely excellent. This hotel is expensive and the service and exclusivity...

I have waited many many years to play Dornoch and staying at Links House made it every bit as special as I had dreamed. The attention to detail from the owners is exceptional and their team don't let them down for a moment. We can't wait to play Dornoch again and it will always have to be with a stay...

Our group of eight had a great five night stay at Links House the first week of September 2106. The stay could not have been more enjoyable. Beverly and the staff took great care of us and our every need was cared for. The food was spectacular. The bedrooms and common areas were perfect for a relaxing afternoon after golf....
