We have just returned from a week’s stay travelling with Shearings. The hotel is typical of the Bay hotel’s group, an old but distinctive building standing in a prominent location, kept clean yet looking a little tired in places. Our basic twin bedroom was adequate without having a view; the facilities, bed linen, towels and housekeeping all fine. Rooms with... More

We often visit Shearing's as they offer consistency - you know what you are going to get each time. However, the Gairloch Hotel exceeded expectations - the staff were first class (even though English/Scottish was not their first language). Nothing was to much trouble and they gave the impression of being happy in what they were doing - I know... More

Big rooms and comfy beds and huge window overlooking the sea. Bit dated, but was an old hotel. Think we were the youngest there as it was a shearings hotel and we didn't no this. Breakfast was quite tasteless and nothing special. Best thing was the view and lounge area.

We have just returned from a Shearings inclusive trip to Gairloch.The journey was long but on arrival it was found to be well worth it. We had regular stops all the way.The hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking the Loch. There is not much else in Gairloch so the trips out were a must. (Take the optional trip to... More

One of the best British holidays we have experienced, the management and staff were second to none the meals were perfectly prepared and delicious, the entertainment was also first class.. The trips out gave scenery to die for a beautiful location and we also had some lovely fellow passengers on the coach which was the icing on the cake. All... More

Just back from a holiday with Shearings. The hotel is in an ideal place, half way between the village and harbour. We arrived late, (9pm), and the restaurant was kept open for our evening meal. (This was needed after the 14 hour journey to get there, but did have various breaks). The staff were helpful and friendly. We paid extra... More

Had another great holiday at this hotel. Some of the Dining Room staff seem to have a poor command of English this year and have not got up to speed with keeping an eye on who has entered the dining room. Food for us was good when we got it. Bar staff were friendly and efficient. A lot of people... More
