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

We had a really excellent two nights stay at Easter 2015. Really enjoyable food, the Game Casserole is superb! A very pleasant bar, with great entertainment on the Friday evening. And the staff were all very helpful and pleasant. All added up to a very enjoyable stay - recommended! The only slight issue was the lack of in room Wi-Fi,... More

First impression of The Old Inn was that it was indeed old, This is a former coaching inn and we were warmly welcomed and promptly shown to our double room upstairs and to the rear of the property. The room was all you might expect well furnished and cosy but also quiet so all the boxes were ticked. Our trip... More

Idyllic location beside a stream, walks , the village shops and the harbour. This quaint and homely hotel has comfortable rooms and communal areas and a good restaurant, and with a great pub selling their own craft ales and having entertainment as well! All set in a lovely garden area with free parking. The downsides were the wifi only worked... More

Stayed at the last minute on tour of Highlands. The hotel is dated throughout and in need of an overhaul if indeed it would be worth. Food is very average and really just pub grub no seafood to be found when we stayed. The main entrance says a lot about what to expect it has a broken weather station, dirty... More
