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

We were very impressed by this hotel. Lovely views from our room and balcony, couldnt have asked for a better view. Room was large and beautifully furnished. Staff were friendly. 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
