The building itself was lovely and well decorated, the surroundings were clean and fine for a table of 9 to eat lunch by the fire. The service was a huge let down, the waitress staff were unfriendly and verging on rude. I ordered a cheese board which came out with three tiny oatcake and no chutney and some apple slices,... More

I am seldom led to write a report for trip advisor and only do so in extreme circumstances of excellence or disappointment. Our visit to Glenelg this year was the latest of many over the last 15 years. During that time the Glenelg Inn has had three owners. The first was referred to in an article written by Bill Bryson...

This Inn undersells and over-delivers. Our first impression was not great as we were walked through the bar to the back of the building and then up a steep, narrow staircase to a landing with two doors -- our room and another room. Once inside, though, we were pleased. The room (Room 4) was unpretentious but very comfortable and recently... More

When we arrived as a group of friends for a bite to eat after a day of walking, the welcoming was standard, we said we wanted food and after a seat being 'pointed' out to us by a member of staff we then sat down and waited 25 minutes to be served, which give them their due the bar was... More

My girlfriend and I have just come back from a road trip across Scotland, so we have seen quite a few B&Bs. The location of Glenelg Inn is truly great. I would also rate quality of food and atmosphere in the Bar/Dining Room quite highly. But 120 Pounds was hugely over-prized for a very average room. We have seen far... More

Several years ago I came across an article in a magazine about The Glenelg Inn and since then, have always had it in my mind that it was a place I'd love to visit, so when we decided to make The Western Highlands our holiday destination for this year, I knew exactly where we'd be going. We didn't stay at... More

What a great place to stay! The drive over the mountain on the single track road was lovely, and the view from Room 6 across the water to Skye was even better. The ferry across to Skye wasn't open for the season yet, so the inn was relatively quiet. With no cell signal and no wifi, we just disconnected and... More

My wife and I recently spent a mid week night at the Glenelg Inn. A superb, restful and quiet location. A beautiful room looking across to the Isleof Skye with a king size bed. The staff were most welcomming and happy to serve our breakfast earlier than usual time. A very good dinner in the bar with a great atmosphere... More

I recently returned to Glenelg and stayed overnight at the Inn. I have been many times to the Inn and my most recent trip yet again confirmed what a unique and special place this is. The food was first class. The atmosphere in the bar is always special and the mix of local characters and tourists a great combination. If... More
