The staff were friendly and welcoming, and dinner was very tasty - would recommend the venison! The downside was our dingy twin-bedded room: when a room's so small that two's a crowd, it really should be offered only as a single.

The staff were friendly and efficient, helpful in showing us where to lock our bikes and kindly they left some breakfast out for us as we had to leave early in the morning before their main breakfast service - for this we are eternally grateful! We didn't eat in the restaurant but judging by comments from other guests in the... More

Lovely hotel. Rooms are clean & comfortable, bathroom was huge with good bath and large walk in shower. Amazing views from the bedroom. Food was good. Only thing that lets it down just a little is the dining area which we found had no character, apart from the views. Staff were very friendly. Despite the weather we enjoyed our stay... More

Another year and I'm back in the area - still coming to The Melvich Hotel - why go else where. Great people, great surrounding, great Hotel. Room 2 has fantastic views of the Orkney Islands [on a clear day] - would I come back - Yes!

This was a reasonable place to stay on our trip around the Scottish highlands.Parking easy,rooms are a very good size,both dinner and breakfast quite good, I just think it lacks the warmth and atmosphere and this probably had a lot to do with the weather experienced.

We stayed one night here with our dog. The place had just opened for this season so was still fairly quiet. Friendly hotel, good sized clean rooms. The evening meal was well cooked - not a lot of choice but excellent food - in a place where it is difficult to find many good places to eat and stay. The... More

Only good words to spend about this lovely hotel in Melvich. Located a few meters away from the sea, the view is fabulous from the window's room and restaurant. The 'cuisine' is delicate and staff is welcoming. The room was clean, quiet and "warm". The lounge was cosy.

We have a list of favourite venues which we visit when we tour Scotland each year to celebrate our wedding anniversary I must thank the hotel's owners Rob & Jo for their kind welcome and note that the same high standards that place this hotel firmly on our afore mentioned...
