I stayed there for just one night, too short unfortunately... The location is wonderful and the view of the bay is magnificent. The hotel itself is ok. We also had dinner, very nice food too. It is worth to stay there if you plan a visit of the highlands.

This hotel used to be a slightly shabby traditional place with nice food. 2 guys have now spent a lot of money refurbishing it and modernising it. Everything looks a little nicer and the room I had was clean and comfortable. I had food in the bar to the gentle accompaniment of some Jazz music. They have opened the bar... More

The two young men who took over this hotel 15 months ago have invested time money and themselves and turned what was a typically tired example of poor highland hospitality which fortunately is becoming rarer into a very well appointed venue We ate but did not stay .Public areas are tastefully turned out and I particularly like the removal of...

Stayed here during our Scottish coastal road trip. Lovely individual rooms, clean and newly decorated to a high standard and the bed was so comfy. We also had a great sea view. The decor of the whole hotel impressed us and had a lovely warm feel to it. Bar food was delicious and a great, chilled out atmosphere to have... More

My wife and I, on a three week tour of Scotland, arrived at the Aultbea Hotel after a long day of driving and were greeted warmly. This place (by far) was the best hotel/inn we stayed at during our three week, 8 city tour. The service was excellent. The dinners were outstanding (fancy but not over the top), their dinning...

A friendly warm welcome when we arrived, staff bent over backwards to make our stay 5 star, beautiful sea view room, elegant, tasteful & spotless, big jacuzzi bath is fabulous!!! A well stocked bar which is comfortable & cosy combining old & new, restaurant has amazing views & food to match, wish I could have stayed longer, perfection.

Used to get brought to Aultbea as a child and wanted to bring my daughter here to visit. Stayed at the Aultbea hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. I believe the owners Ballal and Robin have taken this over recently and have been making a lot of updates/renovations, not sure what it was like when they took over but the place... More

The new owners, Robin and Balal have done a great job with this place, blending old and new so that everybody feels welcome. It's smart and stylish, but also cosy and traditional. The big pluses are the lovely and reasonably priced meals - making the best of great local produce and adding interesting modern twists - and the hospitality of... More

We were on vacation in Aultbea for the wildlife and whilst we did not stay in the hotel we drank and ate there several times during our stay. Fantastic location; views across Loch Ewe to Ewe island and beyond, friendly staff, owners, locals and dog (the fat whippet). A creative, locally sourced and excellent menu available in restaurant or bar... More
