Lovely warm welcome . We had a loch view room, very nicely decorated and a lovely comfortable bed. Very good food served in the restaurant, both dinner and breakfast. Busy bar with music most evenings. We were there on a Monday when there was a folk evening in the sister Argyll Hotel.

Room Tip: Loch view room 4

A calm and quiet overnight stop was just what we needed, and after trying many B&Bs we came across the Ferry Boat Inn. Although not the cheapest, at £170 for 3 adults (a double and a single), it was cosy, and with rooms offering all you need (minus Wifi, as the free one was not working!) it was a great choice for the whole family - the water and biscuits in room were much appreciated, as were the views on the port!
Breakfast was excellent, with a LOT of smoked salmon offered with eggs (or without,if you did not fancy them) and a great, varied selection from the menu - although the breakfast cost £9.95 per head in addition to the room price, but it was well worth it.
A great character stay, we'll be back...

We stayed here for 2 nights- absolutely lovely pub!! Clean and comfortable room, excellent staff, great selection of draught beers and fabulous food!! Highly recommend staying here, eating and drinking!!! Gorgeous view of Loch Broom, but if you want a table for dinner in the window make sure you book!! Will be staying here again as soon as we can get away! Oh, and they are very dog friendly!!!

Visited earlier in the month while on a tour of the west coast and north coast of Scotland. Had an overnight stop in Ullapool and found this fab restaurant. If you ever find yourselves near Ullapool this restaurant is a must. It's not a big place but it's cosy with a real fire and a lovely view over the water. The food was the best we had while we were away. In fact we didn't want the meal to end, it was so good. The mussels were the best I ever tasted as was the sea bass!! Then obviously we had the cranachan for pudding....gorgeous. We ate everything, and to top it off it's dog friendly so our pooch could come in with us. A perfect evening!!

Crammed in like chickens in this tiny place that is barley big enough for 15 people let alone 25 we were back to back with others and had to squeeze past when we went to the bathroom.
It's understandable that they make you pay before you eat as other wise you wouldn't pay.
Soup; can only be described as SPICY dishwater with lumps of uncooked carrot.
Prawn Marie rose sandwich I'm sure would of been delicious if the prawns were not off. The toilet was also disgusting to add
