Great place to stay for a couple of days I stayed for 4 nights doing a landscape photography course and found all of the staff very welcoming and hospitable. The rooms were excellent and the food available was of an excellent standard.

This hotel did not look that inspiring as paint work was suffering and there was scaffolding and external/internal construction works in progress in mid-February. However the new owners more than made up for this in their attentive, enthusiastic and cheerful service - and by wearing every different 'hat' to make sure everything worked. We had a simple but attractive and... More

The changes and refurbishment are going to result in a great place to stay in this beautiful bay. The owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly, the room was comfortable and warm. The food was lovely and the dinner menu was very varied each evening for a 6 night stay. Everyone was working hard to finish the refurbishment for... More

The breakfasts are all freshly cooked. Of the soups, some were of unusual ingredients but all were absolutely delicious. i... More

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
