Our review

A classic Scottish manor home in the great country house tradition, Links at Royal Dornoch is one of the most exclusive small country house hotels in Scotland.

This charming five-star hotel is the result of the sensitive restoration of a classic two-storey late Georgian mansion in a very privileged location: overlooking the 1st tee at Royal Dornoch Golf Club. Whilst James Maxwell, principal architect of the renovations at Skibo Castle was responsible for the renovations, owners Todd and Liz Warnock were responsible for transforming the property into a luxury hotel that expressed their love of architecture, antiques, art, country sports, interior design, Scottish history and the Highlands.

The Links House is the closest you can get to an exclusive-use property in the shape of a five-star hotel. Its interior décor has been meticulously developed so that guests feel that they are staying at a lavish Scottish sporting manor home. From the extensive art collection, antiques and vintage fly rods and reels found throughout the house to the coffee table books on Scottish private estates and the single-malt honour bar in the hotel’s elegant library, everything about the Links House looks and feels sumptuous, bespoke and homely.

Guests can enjoy bespoke fine-dining at the Links House’s beautiful orangery or gather with friends by the outdoor fireplace whilst practicing on the putting green. At the hotel’s very own sporting bothy, guests can also find golf clubs and equipment for outdoor pursuits as well as materials for drawing and painting if they feel inspired.

The Links House at Royal Dornoch has only eight bedrooms, all of them boasting the highest quality of furnishings, luxury bedding, toiletries and modern comforts. Underfloor heating in the bathrooms, fluffy robes, slippers and towels make bath time an indulgent time of luxury and relaxation. Outside the bedrooms, guests can find their favourite whisky, rum or port for a special nightcap.

Families and friends can have the chance to stay in a separate building at the Links House mews which has been sympathetically designed to complement the original building. There they will find three spacious luxury suites, one of them is where the owners often stay when they visit.

General Manager Beverly and her team treats all guests as if they were their very own. Service is flawless, making The Links House at Royal Dornoch one of the best new additions to the Scottish luxury hotel scene.

You must experience it to truly appreciate it!
