Stayed at the Achilty for 2 nights prior to moving on to our cottage on the Saturday. On arriving we were made most welcome by Ethel & Christopher. Our room was comfortable & clean with en suite shower/toilet. Each evening we dined in the restaurant and the food was very good. Breakfast was also brilliant served in "the Music Room"...

Booked this hotel because of it's location for a long weekend flying into Inverness. The food has to be tasted to be believed, all freshly cooked with local produce. The public areas are very comfortable and homely. The rooms are comfortable and the duvets are the best we have ever enjoyed in a hotel. Every morning Ethel planned our route...

I could not believe that such a place could exist as my wife and I approached the Achilty for our three day stay. To be honest it seemed like "Hicksville". Upon entering the Hotel ,however, Ethel the owner, pursuaded us with her keen wit and enthusiasm that this region of Scotland was anything but. Ethel and Chris excelled in the...

Disappointing stay. The proprietors seem well meaning but they presented us with wrong bar and food bills, mixed up breakfast orders and chased us into the car park to insist we pay £6 which they claimed they had mistakenly keyed wrong on their cash machine. The manager wandered around cheerily attempting to engage in light banter with the guests which...

I do wonder what would have been said or written if I had told the Guest that I had overcharged him and I needed to give him the difference. Obvious! Christopher Slater

My girlfriend and I visited the hotel on a recent trip to Scotland. The hotel was excellent with the food and hospitality being first class. The Beef Stroganoff is a delight and finished with a slice of tablet and a German coffee meant we were in culinary heaven. The advice on activities and sites in the area was good with...

If you have children then drive by. This couple would be as well putting up a sign stating "Children are not welcome"! they were downright nasty when we turned up for a meal announcing to us "children have to eat to be allowed in, but we don't have a childrens menu, they must eat from the a La Carte menu"...

Our Licence clearly states that children are only allowed in the restaurant if they are having a meal, a child is a child fron 0 to 18. I do not make the laws only keep to them. If a parent cannot teach their child to eat proper food that is their problem. I do not cook rubbish food. Christopher Slater...

This hotel is situated on the main road to Ullapool for the Stornoway ferry, and as it's on a bend in the road, it would be easy to drive by - but don't!!! My husband took me here for Dinner, Bed & Breakfast for my 40th birthday last year - we were supposed to go to New York but as...

“Rooms on the back of the Hotel will be quieter as we were on the front and next to the main road. Not noisy at night though.”

“If they have rooms which are not to the front of the building, then go for one of these to avoid the road noise.”
