This was our first visit to this waterside hotel , so we have no opinion on its history or whether its current level represents an improvement. The hotel, rather severe on the outside, has clearly been subject to significant updating to the interior and looks quite smart. We were given a large room with a big bay overlooking Loch Ewe,...

What a complete change compared to this time last year. Not only have Robin and Ben done all the much needed building work and improvements, they have rescued the food and brought it right upto date. Simple fresh and local ingredients do not require much doing with them and unlike many restaurants they realise this. A warm welcome superb rooms,... More

We are regular visitors to Wester Ross ...and the Aultbea area in particular. The guys who took over the hotel almost exactly a year ago have done a fantastic job in improving it in sympathetic ways. In particular, you should visit them for their food even if you are too late to book one of their rooms. Booking for dinner... More

Warm welcome, warm rooms, fantastic food, great hospitality. Spent 2 nights with awful weather outside but lovely log burner in the newly renovated bar, breakfast was well cooked and presented in the new restaurant and we couldn't fault the bar meals. Well worth a visit.

This is a review of the restaurant only. The closure of Na Mara over in Strath, Gairloch was a blow but the Aultbea Hotel has helped to ease it. You get the sense the owners are really going the extra mile for their customers. (They kindly offered to move us to a table by the window which had been vacated... More

Excellent lunches especially when served in the conservatory with magnificent views. Friends who have dined there in the evening have been well pleased and gone back several times. I shall go back again too as soon as possible!

We visited the restaurant for aid week dinner in April. It was bustling with happy diners, which is impressive for this early on in the season. The dining room is stunning, and the views over the loch are so awe-inspiring. We were sat by the window, and were treated to a fabulous sunset. The menu is faultless, and very wide-ranging....

I had a cheeky couple of child free days away and ended up here. What a hidden gem of a place, I had a fabulous time and left feeling totally relaxed. I was welcomed as soon as I set foot in the hotel and my room (no. 10) was amazing. Enormous bed (gorgeous headboard and curtains), the most picturesque views... More

We loved the hotel by all accounts, nice house, great loungebar. great view on loch Ewe at breakfast. The only weird thing was, we were there off season, we were the only guests, it seemed, and cleaning stuff was rude and threw us abruptly out of the room the day of departure, did not let us take it easy while...
