We stayed here for a weekend recently and had a lovely room with views over the loch and chairs and table for sitting out on the balcony/terrace The staff were very good from the lovely welcome from the receptionist at check in (he even carried our bags up to the room) to the staff in the restaurant where we dined...

We booked in for 3 nights B and B in late June. We had asked for a room with a view of the loch, and certainly got it. Room number 8 is the one to ask for, it was huge, and the views were fantastic. The toilet and shower were new. The step from the shower onto the floor was... More

We were so disappointed here as we had specifically upgraded so as to stay in one of the most expensively priced rooms in the hotel which boasted loch views. The room we were offered first of all was small with a communal walk by balcony and from which room, if you stood to the far end of the window and... More

Tired, a 1970s throwback. If we could have found another room on Sunday evening we'd have have walked. Window didn't close and the loo blocked. It could happen anywhere but was indicative of the lack of interest here. The wifi was excellent for booking somewhere else!

I had always wanted to visit Ullapool and this hotel seemed the perfect location on a 11 day trip travelling around the Scottish Coastline. In essence the hotel is tired, dated and in need of a real revamp to get it to the standard of other hotels along the coastline. Michael on reception was one ray of sunshine in an... More

I have stayed the hotel a few times in the past as part of our small group tours. It has been a few years since we stayed and unfortunately I forgot why I hadn't been back. What we look for more than anything else in booking accommodation for our tours is a warm welcome and a place that truly appreciates... More

We had a back room with no sea view. It was cramped and underwhelming in every respect. A small double bed, synthetic covers, miserable shower flow. The evening meal was both the best and worst i have had on this trip. The mussels and Langoustines were superb. The langoustines were the fresh, properly cooked and completely delicious, and as a...

Comfortable room - especially when we figured out how to turn on the heater. The view was wonderful and you could go outside your room on a balcony, shared by other hotel guests, to enjoy the view too. The property is old and the rooms reflect that, but it is not really charming old, more of tired old.

We researched on Trip Adviser before booking. Booked a twin room overlooking Loch broom. The check in was straight forward. the room was large with a wide stretch of communal balcony and a picnic table outside our room. It was clean and the atmosphere was comfortable. As we were there at the beginning of the tourist season the restaurant was... More

We stayed in this hotel for four nights in April this year and it was a great time . The staff were really good, our room was super with a terrace outside with a table and chairs. There was a great view over the loch and you could see the ferries coming in. We ate in the restaurant for three... More
