Very friendly people who were always checking everything was okay. Shown to our room which was exactly as our booking information. Fantastic views, small ensuite but everything was lovely, clean and fresh. We could lay in bed and look out of the window over the loch! We had a drink in the bar, played pool, petted their dog and then... More

Have known this property for many years. Hotel in new ownership a couple of years ago, now totally revamped offering badly needed friendly service, good food in both bar and restaurant – with locally sourced specialities - and up-to-date tasteful decor. Excellent job by the owners/hosts and a real boon to the area. Have had several lovely visits for lunch... More

New owners very accommodating. Food was exceptionally tasty and well presented. The barista training was worth while cos the coffee was great. Nice modern decor. Will definately eat here again or even just stop by for coffee. Lovely sea views. Haven't stayed yet but the rooms look as if they've had a lovely make-over.

Spent one night here as part of our Scotland driving tour. The hotel changed hands last year and then had a complete renovation over winter reopening in January this year. The new owners have done a wonderful job, and the restaurant food is to die for. The rooms are a tad small (by Australian standards), but well equipped. We were... More

The room was well furnished but had a sloping ceiling on one side with a dormer window (room 8 on their website). I find these are a little low for my height but not too much of a problem. I did not dine here but on relection wish I had as the alternative wasn't very impressive. The location is wonderful... More

Travelled around scotland & stayed in some very fine luxury hotels. Ten hotels in total during our 2 week trip. The Aultbea has to be our favourite, the room had amazing views & the jacuzzi bath an added bonus. The owners are lovely & helpful, as are the staff, thank you to all of them. This is one hotel that... More

Went with friends on Saturday night. Wasn't sure what to expect but really enjoyed it. Great views from the restaurant over the bay, owners and staff provided a great atmosphere and service. The menu us very focused on local produce, especially fish but also very creative. Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere, will definitely return when in the area.

We received a warm welcome after a long drive from Orkney; the hotel is beautifully appointed and well cared for, as were we. The hotel restaurant is also notable and we enjoyed an imaginative and well-realised dinner, as well as an excellent breakfast. The bar is also very welcoming - a delightful place to stay.

We came across the Aultbea Hotel by chance, only stopping because of several classic sports cars parked outside and as we'd already got out of the car, thought we may as well pop in for a drink. The outside is unremarkable and our expectations were pretty low so we were really impressed once we got inside. The bar area was... More
