Comfortable hotel with good food and hospitality. The brilliant thing was when we arrived back after a hard day in the hills to discover a power cut, the staff pulled out all stops and our meal was ready on time, piping hot and with all options available. What great service.

My husband and I stayed here for only one night. We boarded the ferry to Stornoway the next morning. It was low season, so , besides us, there were a few ferry crew members staying. We had a room facing Loch Broom- the view was spectacular! The staff was so friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The food... More

Stayed here for 1 night in a twin room ahead of the Ullapool Sportive cycling event. The hotel itself is a little dated but fits in nicely in the little town of Ullapool. The staff were helpful and friendly. Food is not served late in the hotel, and the town's chippy closes early too so be warned if you want... More

We stayed here for one night following the cancellation of the ferry to Stornoway. Being a family with young children, it was important to us to be in one room... The Royal Hotel was able to provide us with a massive family room, with plenty of wardrobe space and a balcony which, if the weather had been better, we would... More

We stayed in this hotel for two night while touring Scotland. The hotel was clean but dated. We got to the hotel quite late, so we put our bags in the room and went straight into the bar for something to eat. We were surprised to find a menu dominated by Italian food, which would be fine if you were... More

We spent one night at the Royal Hotel and it was wonderful. The rooms are spacious, bathrooms excellent with lots of hot water and fabulous views across the harbour. It's conveniently located five minutes walk down into the main street. Our dinner in the waterfront bar was yummy and servings were generous. The service was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was...

Not sure where to start -- it is kind of off putting to check in and be told the restaurant is closed for a coach load of visitors. But as luck would have it the Bar/Pub does amazing Pizza's so all wasn't for naught. The rooms are big, but very dated and a number of items in our room were... More

We had a great time at Royal Hotel in Ullapool. The manager Russell and his team couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean, and he managed to put our family group together even though we had arrived on different days. Breakfast was delightful with everything you could ask for and the service was very efficient. Highly... More
