A largish hotel in the small town of Ullapool facing loch Broom. We stayed here between two days of private photography tuition so were mainly looking for a comfortable bed and somewhere that does food. It was very quiet (it was Sunday night in January) so most of the hotel was not in use due to low season. The bar... More

Despite living in Elgin for 35 years I've NEVER been to the Royal. Big mistake. Daughter took wife and I there tonight for a meal for a wee treat. Dear Lord, where do I begin with a surfeit of excellence? Service nil secundus, starter of Crispy Prawn Sandwiches was light, tasty and the perfect beginning. I then had the haddock... More

Last summer we stayed here as part of a bus tour. Of the 11 nights, this was the nicest. We had an upstairs room, which was an important part of the enjoyment. The little village with it's shops and the view, along with the large shared social deck were all part of making this a magical experience.

Stayed over the weekend for a short honeymoon get away. We got a four post bedroom. The room was lovely and the view amazing. The room was big, bright and very clean. The bedding was comfy and there were plenty of pillows. There was tea, coffee, hot chocolate and cookies for tea time. A balcony to sit out on and... More

Arrived here on a calm clear September evening prior to getting the Stornoway Ferry the next morning. Had booked balcony rooms and were able to enjoy a couple of drinks overlooking Loch Broom. If you like Whisky the bar is very well stocked and was playing an enjoyable if eclectic selection of music :) We only ate breakfast in the... More

An impromptu weekend over to the West of Scotland was made so much better by the excellent family accommodation at the Royal Hotel in Ulllapool. I had booked the rooms for one night with only a few days notice, having planned to visit Lochinver and Ullapool on a Saturday. The parking and hotel location were ideally situated at the end...

My wife and I were touring Scotland and we left Portree in Skye a bit later than we expected. It was dark when we reached Ullapool. I had earlier seen the hotel's website and it seemed a reasonable place to stay. The room was shabby with these terrible hairy pillows on the bed. The furniture was late Harold Wilson (or... More

This property has so much potential. The exterior has a grand look. Unfortunately it misses the mark. The interior has a bit of a shabby look. While my room was quite large and clean, the furniture and carpet clearly need an upgrade. Getting rid of some old flooring and adding some updated pics of the area would make a better... More
