Called at this establishment twice during our stay to this area. It is very old fashioned and dull in the bar and plastic tables in the Bistro but the food was good. View of the bay from the Bistro but not sure if I would like to stay here. Nobody could help a Spanish couple who did not speak any... More

Horrid back room overlooking road - harassed waitress had to be fetched from dining room to check us in - after 9 hour journey in rain not the welcome we would have liked - mixed seafood for supper all identically orange battered - so generally huge disappointment - important to request view when booking ... Staff were pleasant however even... More

Aultbea is right on the shore of Loch Ewe. Its obviously an old building and could do with a smarten up but the location, superb dining and friendly service more than make up for this. My room was comfortable, with an unusual step down to the en-suite. The hotel's public rooms are beautiful, especially the old lounge room. The dining... More

Stayed one night here, setting extremely picturesque however the hotel is in need of some love and could benefit from a spruce up. Reception had a musty air to it and was quite dimly lit but staff respectful and courteous. Room small but overlooked the bay and was light and airy, however we could hear the plumbing from neighbouring rooms.... More

We (a party of 6) stayed here for one night during a week long trip in the Scottish Highlands. The location is excellent, tucked away in the village of Aultbea. We had a very cold reception from the manager, to the point of rudeness. Any interaction we had with her, including trying to order drinks at the bar was curt... More

We spent one night at the hotel. Lovely warm welcome from the owner, comfortable room with amazing sea views and a lovely dinner in the dining room overlooking the bay. We shared a seafood platter which matched anything we've had here in France. We used the public bar where the barmaid was really welcoming and the locals so friendly that... More

I'd booked a single room and felt I got a good rate. The room was comfy and met all my needs. I ate in the bar and whilst the food was nothing amazing, it was good value for money. I also found the staff extremely pleasant - just a shame the bar was so quiet. Breakfast was fine, although the... More

I can rate only the restaurant (lounge bar) which is open for all, not only hotel's guests. There is not very wide choice of meals and I think that prices are a bit above average but all was really very tasty. Waitresses are very kind and helpful and the place itself is quiet and pleasant. I can recommend it if... More

The Aultbea Hotel is located in Aultbea on the shore of Loch Ewe, in an idealic setting by the water. My room struck me as being quite small, with a large double bed and en-suite bathroom. The furnishings whilst being modern, were becoming dated in appearance. A small television was provided with a sofa, coffee table, tea/ coffee making facilities... More
