Stayed for one night on business trip in September 2014. The outside is well presented and obviously well looked after. Clean and comfortable room in good repair. Nice and quiet with no unuasual noises you can sometimes get in hotels. No traffic noise as it's set back from the main road a good distance. Nice tables outside overlooking the river... More

the inn is a lovely building from the outside, and has lovely views from it's garden/ outside dining area. inside, the bar area is a little cramped, but there are other places to sit and eat. the food was good, and the staff were friendly and accommodating, and very good at remembering names after your first meeting it seems, lol....

Ate in the bar several evenings running with our little dog. The pub is beautifully-situated. The bar is quite small and very busy but there are several areas to sit and eat in more of a restaurant atmosphere (dogs not allowed though). There is also a lovely outside area by the river. All the food we had was lovely, several... More

We stayed in the Old Inn for one night after climbing in the Torridon Hills. The setting is stunning and I would most certainly spend more time in Gareloch and it's surrounding area, however I felt the quality and service was a little hap hazzard. I must say though, that it was extremely friendly!! Our room was well priced, we... More

We had an afternoon snack here. The pub is in a nice setting and looks lovely from the exterior. Inside is nice too and could have a lovely atmosphere although it was very cold and none of the fires were lit... We were served by a pleasant barmaid. We had the afternoon menu which was not very accommodating to vegetarians.... More

First visit but a great location, very good room and attentive staff throughout the stay. The restaurant has a good menu which does change to add in specials every so often. Senior management is invisible, so I can understand how the couple of negative reviews have come about because however willing and energetic the staff might be they are in... More

Eaten twice here in the last two weeks. Come up to this area at least once a year with my family and always manage at least one meal here, and a few drop-ins for a pint. Felt that it had actually improved since my last visit in May, so was surprised when I found negative recent reviews. Ate here tonight... More

We checked in at 5.30pm to be told that the restaurant was fully booked. We were given a table in the bar instead but this was very small and uncomfortable, right up against the bar, so I had people queueing at my back for drinks all evening. We were told the bar was the same as the restaurant but this... More

An 'OK' meal in the lounge bar (the one with with the eclectic decor) but not a patch on what it used to be. Very disappointing as this used to be a favourite destination. The Old Inn seems to have lost its way and we miss it! Food very average, service average, all very average. Definitely in need of a... More

We have visited the Old Inn in Gairloch on manys an occasion and decided to visit again during our annual holiday. We booked a table in the bar as we know how busy it can get and we have a dog and arrived at 6.30 at the time of our booking to be told there was no reservation. I watched... More
