The communal areas were fine, staff were great but the rooms were truly awful. At least the room we were in was. Wavy carpets, hot and cold buttons on the taps in the bathroom were missing. Bathroom suite was a dull shade of beige and at sometime the toilet seat must have got broken and they replaced it with a... More

Firstly I want to say what a wonderful area of Scotland we have just visited, from the Isle of Skye to the wester ross coastal route it was brilliant, but the must see of this trip is the scenic route to Applecross. The Bay Gairloch hotel is an ideal place in this part of Scotland, its only downfall is nobody... More

We stayed for a week in July with Shearings. Martin was our driver, he was the best driver we have had ever. The hotel room was just perfect, large and airy with a very roomy bathroom.. shower in bath, and a 'sea view', first floor, I think room 114, and it was quiet. For breakfast you helped yourself to the... More

I've got to rooms at amazing price - 59 pounds per a double room with a see view per night, so I was expecting kind of a dated thing. And yes: the rooms would need some refurbishing probably. But they were clean, cozy and full of character, with clean bathrooms, great size and the view on the bay. We went... More

We stayed here for a couple of days. The hotel was very quiet when we arrived which I really liked. Our room was superb - with a large main room, pleasant bathroom and a small dressing room too. Bed was comfortable. Best of all was that, on the evening of our arrival, we had beautiful views out over the sunny(!)... More

Just returned from this wonderful Bay hotel. Efficiently run, relaxed atmosphere friendly smiling staff. The food was well above average, consistent quality ingredients making for flavoursome dishes and variety and choices to suit all tastes. Waiters worked many tables at a time with speed and efficiency. Difficult to understand some of the previous negative comments. The dining room experience was... More

We are just back from a 7 night stay at this hotel. Yes, the building is a little tired and could do with a little updating but I disagree with earlier comments about the dining room. Our waiter, Lehal was fantastic and I was impressed with the efficiency of the service. No sooner had the first course been cleared than... More

Would have been glorious in its day. Still comfortable and good value. We had a lovely, light filled twin room looking out to sea. What a view! Comfortable beds. Bathroom had just a bath (no shower) but that was fine. If you're worried by a bit of peeling wallpaper, move on, but if you like a big, comfy, friendly place... More
