We came for an evening meal in the Waterfront Bar here during our recent visit to Ullapool. The service was prompt and friendly, and my husband enjoyed an excellent coffee. However, I felt that the bar smelt somewhat damp and musty, and the food was average to say the least. On the plus side, the hotel is in an excellent... More

I stayed here for two nights in room 19 and loved it, wishing I could have stayed longer. The location is outstanding, at the end of the main road with a panoramic view of Loch Broom. It was a great pleasure to sit on the verandah and watch the sun go down over the mountains and sea. My room was... More

We stayed overnight for our anniversary in one of the executive rooms. I think we had the best room in the house, right on the corner with the balcony, the most wonderful view overlooking the loch. If only the weather had been kinder we could have spent more time out on the balcony but I sat looking out the window... More

I stayed at the "Royal" about ten years ago. It was a lovely hotel then, but a little dated. Today's Royal is a five star, top of the range hotel. It has been transformed by the present owner to, what I consider to be the best hotel in Ullapool. If you are fortunate to visit the Royal, have your evening... More

This hotel did exactly what we wanted of it. We required a bed for the night prior to our ferry journey to Stornoway. We ate at the Seaforth Inn as so many on Trip Advisor had recommended, and we were not disappointed. The Royal provided a comfortable (ish) bed and decent breakfast for a reasonable cost. The room was clean,... More

Good access to village, not a lot to do, but a nice rest from the drive to get here. Restaurant was good, staff friendly and overall clean rooms. A lot of tour buses use this site, but this did not seem to be a problem for staff.

The Royal hotel in Ullapool is considered the No.1 hotel in Ullapool but I think it gets this distinction from being the largest and not necessarily the best. It's all a bit dated. The rooms were large and clean but I feel a pine forest somewhere has been ravaged to decorate the rooms. There is a large Italian restaurant that... More

We stayed here as part of a coach tour. Our room was spacious, modern furniture and very comfortable bed. The bathroom was beautiful, large shower. We overlooked a small garden area at the back of the hotel which was lovely and quiet. We were in the 'party' dining room which would accommodate two coach loads although there is alternative intimate... More

Stayed here several times and love the place. In my opinion, the best place to stay in Ullapool. Really nice, clean rooms, great views, friendly staff and fabulous breakfast. Never eaten in hotel for evening meal, nor have I ever need tempted (there are some very nice, vibrant restaurants in Ullapool within 10 minutes walk). What would tempt me? Great... More

My hubby and I had a lovely stay in the hotel 2 weeks ago. Room very clean and comfortable. Evening meal in the bar great and breakfast so freshly cooked and the little touch of a dram of malt whisky with the porridge is a wonderful idea ,especially from visitors from abroad. Well done friendly staff and management at the... More
