Nice hotel, close to the ferry. Rooms were larger than most European rooms. Bathrooms and decor a bit dated. The hotel has two restaurants, but the main dining one closes pretty early. Dinner in the bar was okay, not great.

Booked a one night stay based upon the hotels website. Location and views of Loch Broom are lovely but that's where the comparison with the website ends. The decor of the hotel is dated and in need of a revamp, no lift so anyone with mobility problems would find this difficult, room was also in need of some TLC, beds... More

Only stayed a night here. No lift here so was a little tricky for one of my friends who struggles with stairs. An older style building, our blinds in our room were missing the twister to close them. Large size twin room. Shower was good temperature and pressure. Beds were ok. The restaurant attached was nice with good service.

Stopped here with my grandmother when we were doing a road trip through the highlands. Was thoroughly disappointed with the outdated, shabbiness of the place. Clearly not very well looked after, the place actually smelled, and not in a quaint musty way. It was more so a stale, unwashed stink that was certainly unpleasant yet very present in the rooms...

Stopped in Ullapool Scotland for a few nights at a local B&B. My wife and I decided to walk to the Royal Hotel for a drink. Entered the restaurant and asked if we needed to book if we decided to eat there. Met with a lack of interest but confirmed we could come back in half an hour. We then... More

Very welcoming reception and they gave us a ground floor room with a small terrace as my wife has a problem climbing stairs. Room was large and comfortable. Food was good and so was service. Only a short walk from the hotel into the town centre.

We stopped here for a couple of nights. The room was spacious and clean, with a balcony patio looking over Loch Broom. The restaurant food was good, and the service was even better. The location was good, and the hotel was quieter than I had expected. It would be my choice for a return visit.
