The young, new owners are doing an excellent job at revitalising this hotel. It is positioned on the shores of Loch Ewe with some lovely views across the loch, particulalry at sunrise and sunset. The staff were very welcoming, check-in was smooth and efficient. I found the single room a little small but comfortable. Food was to a high standard.... More

This hotel is a great find, set in an amazing location with spectacular scenery. Your Aultbea hotel experience starts from the moment you walk through the door with a very friendly welcome from the owner\ manager. After a very quick check in we were shown to our excellent room with outstanding views across the loch. The room had a huge... More

It is more years than I care to remember since you could have a good meal in Aultbea, but with the recent change of ownership of Aultbea Hotel, that has at last changed. Although the hotel is now operating a pared down winter menu since the tourist season has ended, there is no reduction in quality. It is also good... More

We spent a week with friends near Aultbea, and spent quite a bit of time at the Aultbea Hotel. Robin and Bill are doing a great job bringing the hotel up to a high standard. We experienced the friendly atmosphere on more than one occasion! On our last night we ate in the lovely restaurant which has seen a sympathetic... More

Alex,the owner since May, has put his heart,soul and experience into the Aultbea. It can still be described as shabby chic in some areas but he has seen the architect and had the ideas so everything can only continue to improve. The sitting room already shows the classy improvements he wishes to make. The rooms were squeaky clean with good... More

The new owners are really trying hard - and making a good fist - of turning the Aultbea Hotel into a food destination. However, they've yet to bring the same attention to the accommodation, which is still rather tired.

Good food, staff who are friendly and beguiling views. The new owners have not just turned a corner, they are on a completely different road (in the same place). Happy to recommend this rejuvenated hotel.

The new owners really have turned this place around. There was a great choice of amazing local food, and the staff were very helpful. It is in a remote location, and a fair drive from any large towns. So if you are looking for a quiet get away with amazing views and walking opportunities, this is the hotel for you!... More
