My wife and I were touring Scotland and we left Portree in Skye a bit later than we expected. It was dark when we reached Ullapool. I had earlier seen the hotel's website and it seemed a reasonable place to stay. The room was shabby with these terrible hairy pillows on the bed. The furniture was late Harold Wilson (or...

Stayed at this hotel for a week and Have to say this hotel has very friendly staff , and the rooms are clean. The waterfront Resteraunt has a fine collection of whiskey and the Italian food was delicious and plentiful

This property has so much potential. The exterior has a grand look. Unfortunately it misses the mark. The interior has a bit of a shabby look. While my room was quite large and clean, the furniture and carpet clearly need an upgrade. Getting rid of some old flooring and adding some updated pics of the area would make a better...

What a great hotel to stay at we only wished we could have stayed there longer. Plenty of parking on site and free which is even better. Nice big spacious bar where you can have your meal or dinning room. We went upstairs to our room and it was very quaint and roomy, the bathroom as spacious and clean. Shops...

As long as you have view this Hotel is good. The dining room staff are superb, exceptionally efficient and friendly. They were great. Bedroom large but skinny pillows and the beds - dreadful they are on castors and as soon as you sit on them they move, pillows kept falling down back of the bed, it was very annoying eventually...

The royal hotel is all about the wonderful views from the front of the hotel. Given that the weather was dark and rainy we didn't see it at its best. The room was at good size and you could step onto the balcony, weather permitting It is not a good idea to put a TV onto the wall in hotels...

Not as good as we were expecting at the price - we would probably have been better off in a B&B. The room was a good size and clean but had a very fusty smell. The bathroom door did not close properly and the shower was rather difficult to operate. Overall staff were pleasant and helpful but the food in...
