Have stayed at this hotel many times after being posted here for work. Oldie worldie and full of charm. Excellent staff, Tony the manager is so down to earth and on the ball for a good laugh. Views across the bay to the North of Skye and amazing sunsets. If you need a good rest, breath taking British scenery, Gairloch... More

We returned on the 26th September from another lovely holiday at this Bay Hotel in abeautiful Gairloch. Our room was very clean and serviced every day. Paid extra for a sea view which is well worth it. Service in the Diing room was good and staff cheerful. Lovely Desserts. The optional trip to Applecross was taken advantage of yet again,... More

Stayed here on a Shearings holiday for 6 nights. The location opposite the Gairloch was stunning, the Sunsets especially beautiful. The hotel staff were all exceptional, they went out of their way to be pleasant and helpful. If you go on your own, it would make a good base for your travels, but it does tend to be mostly coaches... More

First things first, PLEASE, anyone who is thinking of nit-picking about this hotel, DON'T. This hotel is absolutely perfect and it's a case of 'if you let this hotel into your heart' you will feel nothing but fortunate to sample a true Highland Scottish hotel. I was booked on a Shearings Holland on 19th September to stay here until 25th... More

I'd given the hotel stay four stars the last time we stayed. This time we splashed out and got a premier room (with a sea view) - and I'm happy to give five stars! The hotel has been refurbished and is in good condition. The food was excellent, as was the service. Our self-drive package gave us an 'all-inclusive' stay,... More

We paid extra for a larger room and sea views, well worth the extra. Room was massive and the views spectacular. Staff very helpful and attentive although the food was disappointing. Cooked Breakfast was served Luke warm but on a hot plate. Saying that, you are here for the views and you are not disappointed
