My sister & I visited Ullapool & stayed at this hotel. The location was ideal as it was only minutes from the pier. The room was clean, beds freshly made up & bathroom was a good size too. We loved the terrace which had picnic tables etc outside our patio doors enabling us to relax in the beautiful sunshine. We... More

We passed through here on a bike tour and whilst a fairly simple British hotel I'd say it was fantastic value for money. My single room was very nice and the views of Loch Broom were as good as you'll see of a lake anywhere in the world, simply stunning. No idea about a gym, but the breakfast was very... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location with spectacular views. Very reasonably priced. Fantastic breakfast in dining room with panoramic views. Ask for a bedroom with sea view. Very busy on evening I stayed yet I didn't hear a sound. Only one thing I would change and that is top sheets where i presume duvet cover does not get changed... More

I reviewed this Hotel several years ago, and thought it would be interesting if the experience was better than previously. Starting with the booking experience a friend had told me to try using http://www.royalhotelullapool.co uk as it was a good website to book through. A wise tip indeed.Some of the photographs that are displayed on this site are a little... More

Location was perfect, on the road into Ullapool. The room was beautiful and clean, the bathroom was brand new, restaurant food was great and breakfast was very satisfying. All for 55 quid for one night!

Can't praise this place enough. Lovely location, staff friendly and room really impressive. Breakfast tasty only thing I can say let it down was the fact one staff member spoke no English and didn't understand anything apart from asking if I wanted tea or coffee. I tried to order breakfast and she had to go get another member staff to... More

Due to less favourable reviews for the hotel we have stayed in previously, I looked around for comparable cost and views. However when I tried to book a room for our anniversary, all the standard rooms had gone, so I booked a room with a 4-poster bed that was only slightly more expensive than the standard room. The room we... More

The hotel is across the road from the loch and just behind a petrol station. We paid for a front room with a view but the room really faced perpendicular to the loch. The room itself was large and clean. The bathroom was a good size. Overall very comfortable. There is no elevator to the second floor, should that be... More

On a recent CIE tour of Scotland my friends and I spent a night in this hotel. The room was ok and the hotel was clean. The main reason for the low rating was the food in the dining room. It was frankly not very good. The service was ok if a little slow. I asked for ice which I... More

This is an older hotel and the furnishes have not been updated for some time but it is clean and the view from our room was wonderful, plus a common balcony across the front was filled with colorful flowers. There were steps to climb and a good breakfast came with the room. Dinner was also available at the restaurant.
