The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. We were the only diners in at lunch time, but that didn't stop it being fantastic. The staff even walked us to our cars with umbrellas as it was sleet and snow when we left, nice touch. A lovely venue to come for a special occasion.

We were visiting for a week staying in a holiday cottage and found the restaurant by searching reviews and the write ups were true to their word. We booked a table to eat on a Wednesday and on making the reservation were informed that it was very busy and they could only just fit us in, which I was surprised... More

My husband and I along with another couple stayed here early April for 2 nights. The hotel is unique, easy check in, friendly staff. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom offered little privacy because of the glass walls. Awkwardly placed as it is situated in front of the entrance door to room. The AC unit slightly noisy and... More

Spent the last night of a short break to Plockton and Applecross at the Rocpool Reserve. The room was spacious with a huge bed, nice sitting area, coffee/tea machine, big bathroom with a big, deep bath and separate shower compartment. Our room was downstairs with no view but I understand that the room with the hot tub upstairs has a... More

Wow brilliant hotel, all staff are fantastic and can't do enough for you. Room spotless and breakfast was superb but the icing on cake was the food!!! All I can say is get in there and try for yourself. Everything is well priced and to die for. Will be back.👍

stayed here for 1 night in April with my wife in one of the extra decadent rooms with hot tub and small sauna/warm room. The rooms are very well appointed and the hotel is a short drive from the town centre. The one thing I would say is that at almost £400 for 1 night it is not cheap by... More
