Everything I needed. I wanted to maximise daylight hours on the hills, so Nigel and the chef were easy with serving my breakfast a little early. Sandra was friendly and helpful, providing a much needed pint at the end of my day. The place itself has a magnificent location - on a warm late afternoon it's okay to sit out...

We stayed at this small hotel for one night before catching the ferry for Stornaway on the Isle of Lewis. The receptionist was welcoming and helpful. Our room had two huge single beds which were very comfortable and suited us well as well as a large, clean bathroom with a large bath, a shower and loads of hot water. The...

Called here for lunch and a pint and our dog was allowed in which was great, as was a rainy day. Only small inside but welcoming. Enjoyed B L T sandwich, was yummy and a pint of cider. Plenty of people coming in. Will definitely call again.

What a shame, this hotel has the best views of Ullapool but the rooms are shabby and the customer service shoddy. It's probably as well they didn't ask why we didn't stop for breakfast or how our stay was as I don't think they would have like my response! The room was shabby, the bathroom could have done with a...

To start with the positives, this hotel has a great location on the harbourfront, it's easily accessible by car, and there's short-term parking right outside, which is handy for unloading. But it desperately needs refurbishment: it's crying out for total redecoration and to have those tatty carpets ripped out and replaced. The wallpaper was peeling in my room (and elsewhere)...

Waited quite a while to be seen for check in, we got to our room and in definite need of a refurb, the carpet was plush though and the bed very comfy. The wifi did not stretch to our room, the bathroom was slightly mouldy (probably from being carpeted) and had hairs stuck to the tiles. The room was also...

The Prime location of this hotel is great. The beds comfy. Now apart from that the staff need training. On arrival, no happy welcome, we (my sister & I) were the first to check in, (check in small and pokey) we were given the keys and I asked if it was a front room and it wasn't, so I said...

What a darling picturesque place on Loch Broom. Quaint and cozy and right on the waterfront. We stayed two nights and actually thought it was one of the better rooms we had on our trip thru Scotland. Our room was on the front side of the hotel and from our window you could see out onto the loch with fishing...

Stayed here for one night only. The room was big. The Bed was really nice and we slept very good in it. The Shower is a nightmare, very cold or very hot there is no other option and there is slow water. Could not wash my hair! Overpriced comparing to other stays.
