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

Food was great, we had breakfast and dinner there. Only one thing disappointing was that the dining room staff kept on talking in another language amongst each other, sounded a... More

Nice hotel, great location, clean. Comfortable room. Totally spoilt by lackadaisical service and very poor food. Sadly we had booked in for an evening meal and felt committed despite having seen several very good restaurants in town. BIG mistake. A very limited Italian based menu, and when the meal I ordered vittello Milanese (veal) arrived it was so tough I... More

We had a room with a superb view of the bay and a terrace to sit outside on. The room was clean large and good. The shower was excellent. However the first night we had dinner in the restaurant and it was the worst meal we had in Scotland. Thankfully we had decided to skip starters, the mail meal (I... More

We stayed here for the weekend back in January for a weekend away that my boyfriend booked as a suprise. The view from room was fantastic as we had a room on the front, slap bang in the middle so we could see everything. The shower was lovely and big and the bed was very comfortable. The first night we... More

Booked in here April 5th on business with 4 other colleagues. Rooms were a very decent size, clean and comfortable. Staff friendly with a decent atmosphere although not full season. Evening meals were all very good. Our rooms had balconies which wrap around first floor and allow you to sit out and enjoy the view.
