Value for money hotel. Brilliant location, comfortable room, clean linen etc. One gripe, it is probably from years of wear, but the bath does not look clean. A good steam clean would rectify. Otherwise good buffet breakfast, friendly staff and a public bar with Sports TV.

Looking at some of the reviews of the Caledonian we only booked a room because our friends were staying there before we all caught the ferry to Lewis. We were very relieved and delighted that the room was fine, a slight creak from the floorboards but everything else much better than the price indicated. It was very good value and... More

Want to be fair because this hotel is not terrible but it as its issues. Very large style hotel with large open areas for guest use and a bar that is shared with local trade. On arriving reception had a very small amount of people waiting and within seconds a second person appeared to help with check-in. Process was friendly... More

Caledonian Hotel certainly needs a series of restoration works. But we loved its old-fashioned atmosphere, its big size (compared to the number of inhabitants of the village), its clients (British elderlies - playing Bingo - and international tourists), its rich breakfast, its convenient price. Too bad the free WIFI works only downstairs (not in the bedrooms).

Good service at reception, room a bit cramped but beds comfortable, breakfast very good, location near to harbour for my wifes business there. Good value for money. Ullapool would benifit from a bit more variety in the food available in local cafes and restaurants, but local fish and chips are excellent.

Staff very helpful, hotel a bit dated but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent the choices were good. The Hotel is a stones throw from the Ferry so was ideal for this trip. Price was good and value for money.

This hotel can offer excellent value for the outdoor enthusiast if booked in advance. The rooms are small but they have all the facilities you need, there's a wall mounted TV, en-suite, comfortable bed, clean room and a kettle that will fill a flask at one boil. The buffet breakfast is good quality and plentiful, staff are friendly and it's... More

Historical hotel in ullapool. Family rooms are vintage and cleanliness is below expectations. Price is good. Wifk is working in common areas only. Breakfast is buffet continental. Car park is in front of the hotel but spaces are limited.

We booked this hotel for just one night before taking the ferry across to Stornoway. We were just looking for basic accommodation, i.e. a good night sleep and a decent breakfast. Despite been a family we were given rooms in opposite sides of the hotel, quite far away. One room was on the first floor, only accessible by a narrow... More
