This is a pleasant enough hotel let down by some of the staff who are really slow and don't seem to know what they should be doing. Our room was larger than we were expecting and had everything we needed. The location is pleasant and wifi was good.

We had two nights here and found it to be very comfortable ,the bed was huge and we slept really well. We particularly found the staff (yes,even the foreign ones!) to be extremely friendly and helpful. The food was good,if not spectacular and I did enjoy the seafood risotto. The only problem we had was that the coffee for breakfast... More

Just to give you an example of good highland hospitality!.................. dropped in one morning around the back of 9:00 and politely asked if three of us could each have a bacon roll and a coffee. "No, too busy with making breakfasts" was the reply. The fact they were cooking bacon and serving fresh coffee to residents seemed to make no... More

We called on chance on Thursday 4th June. Super welcome by the girl in the bar who quickly sorted out a table for us. Food was a big letdown and expensive for what it was. Home made Soda bread was a bought slice of ordainary brown! The Venison and Pheasant Stew wa tough, the dougballs were inedible and the vegetables... More

Offers an average pub B'n'B service but at a posh hotel price. On the plus side it has a good breakfast, lovely location, kettle in the room. But there are few frills, for example no shampoo, not very nice bedding and very weak internet. We booked here because we love real ale and there is a brewery on-site. But none... More

Lovely old inn near to the harbour at Gairloch and in a tranquil location. Excellent restaurant serving a good selection of foods and the bar area gave us the opportunity to sample some Scottish whiskies. We had the best nights sleep of our holiday and would recommend the room with access to a balcony although unfortunately the Scottish weather didn't... More

The Old Inn is a small hotel sitting in a lovely setting on the right side as you enter Gairloch from Achnasheen. It's a must to stop here for a bite to eat or stay a night or two. Great accommodation and wonderful helpful staff..Food is excellent and well portioned. If your staying over you may also enjoy a night... More

Having been to the Old Inn before and as a real ale drinker I was looking forward to a decent pint and a bite to eat after a lovely day out West..Alarm bells started ringing when there were only 2 hand pumps operational and the barman was struggling to get anything out of one of them(clearly end of barrel) so...

Searched for something hot to eat after a drive from Glasgow. Other places not serving food till 6pm!! Looked lovely but distinct unpleasant smell evident straight away. Staff friendly enough. We both fancied scampi but this was run of the mill and no better than you'd get in asda or tesco. Place is pretty run down. Beautiful surroundings. £27 for... More
