What a gem of a hotel, stunning location, brilliant rooms ( even more so when facing the loch), wonderful bathrooms and food to die for in the restaurant. The new owners have made wonderful changes, cannot wait to see what they will do to complete the transformation. I have travelled to many places and value for money Aultbea Hotel represents... More

We were staying at a local B&B but decided to sample the menu. The new owners have been working hard on refurbishment but amongst all of that have maintained an excellent level of service. The food was great, with a good choice on the menu, and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Just what we needed after a long day... More

We decided to book a room with a sea view although it was more expensive. We had Room 10 and we're not disappointed. It was hard to stop looking out one of the 3 windows especially as it was mid June and hardly got dark but the jacuzzi bath had to be experienced. We had dinner in the conservatory which... More

From the warm welcome, to the check out, what was outstanding in the Aultbea Hotel, is the attention to detail. The owners have made a great start and we wish them all success - we will not hesitate to go back. The room has a stunning view across Loch Awe; is very comfortable - an excellent firm bed helped provide... More

Our room had a stunning view across the bay to the small fishing harbour, comfortable bed and adequate shower. Wifi in the bedroom was so weak as to be unworkable and even in the small and comfortable lounge it was very slow but that seems to be the norm over much of the west coast. If you are interested in... More

Having frequented the restauant for many years we were apprehensive about eating there on holiday this year. We need not have worried. We ate there 4 times and were very impressed by the food and by the much improved ambience. The new owners have worked so hard in their short time there and already improvements can be seen. They are... More

Tired, neglected and poorly run. I understand that it is up for sale and it shows. We were only eating and not staying so can only comment on the food and bar. An unwelcoming dark entrance leads to a darker lounge bar. Indifferent staff, poor menu, mediocre beer it is the place that time forgot. Yes the restaurant menu is... More

BasilForever26, Owner at Aultbea Hotel, responded to this review

As the new owners (of 4 weeks) it is reassuring that we are focusing our energy on the areas that are most important to our guests. Since taking over we have already refurbished the main entrance to the hotel and the waterside conservatory that enjoys expansive views over the loch to the Torridon mountains - we have uploaded some pictures...

We had a meal in the aultbea hotel last night and I thought the work that has been getting done to improve the hotel is good. The hotel is looking as a welcoming place to go. I understand the new owner have not been there too long but I can see the improvements now. The meal did have its ups... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in May, just wanted a peaceful time away and that's what we got. Room--- Lovely room overlooking the loch, spacious and comfy bed. Tea and coffee making facilities. Flat screen TV, but very difficult to watch as it kept going squidgy. They did offer a replacement but I said not to bother. Bathroom... More
