There can't be many hotels offering such a short walk from the lobby to the first tee of a world-renowned golf course.

A golfers’ paradise with a traditional Scottish Highland welcome

The Royal Golf Hotel overlooks the opening hole of the famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club’s Championship Course, which has long been ranked as one of the world’s best.

The hotel rates 96 per cent on TripAdvisor, which also awarded it a 2013 certificate of excellence.

Awarded ‘Hotel of the Year 2010’ by Golf Tourism Scotland and ‘Scottish Golf Hotel of the year 2011’ at The Scottish Hotel Awards, The Royal Golf never ceases its drive to improve both facilities and service.

Its most recent enhancements include completely refurbishing 16 of its 22 bedrooms, installing large, walk in Monsoon showers and upgraded public areas including the beech flooring of the conservatory restaurant.

The hotel has its own drying room and golf club store room for visitors enjoying the stunning array of courses in the area.

Ideally situated

Golfers will find the location and facilities ideal for their needs. As well as having Royal Dornoch’s two internationally-renowned links on its doorstep, there are about 20 other top-class courses within an hours’ drive.

The location is also ideal for enjoying the sights of the historic Royal Burgh of Dornoch and the many local landmarks, including its famous 13th century cathedral whose minister, Rev Susan Brown, officiated at the wedding of Madonna and Guy Ritchie at nearby Skibo Castle.

Looking to the future

Future improvements are on the way, including 37 two-bedroom luxury holiday apartments in the hotel grounds, providing additional accommodation for hotel guests and opportunities to buy.
