The room was clean, comfortable and the shower was hot. Being on the top floor we had a good view of the ferry terminal and waters beyond. The room could do with some updating, the breakfast was plentiful, the service helpful, and the price was right.

Recently visited on business and found this place an ideal location for the ferry port. The best thing about my stay was the breakfast. I could not recommend for a vacation, the place is in need of a facelift throughout. Everything from the bar, room and bathroom could do with some work. The shower in my room would hardly get...

Great hotel, staff very informative and helpful, facilities good, room clean and well equipped. Dinner was good and value for money, breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Bar prices were a little steep (£9.75 for a pint and a glass of wine), but service was great.

Stayed for 3 nights as part of a Groupon deal for £116 so we didn't expect too much and the reviews had us a little concerned. However we were rather taken with this tired old place and it was a great base to access local mountains. The staff were very efficient and approachable. The Scottish receptionist Andrew was extremely helpful... More

On seeing the hotel it looked OK but after going through the filthy back entrance from the carpark and tired corridoors my expectations plumetted. Our room was small and the bathroom grotty and mouldy. I was kept awake most of the night by the rattling heating pipes, a howling dog next door and the unbelievably creaky floorfloorboards above. Needless to... More

I agree with other reviews that this is not a great hotel or luxurious in any way, but the value for money is really good. Ullapool is not a resort destination, so everything you do is outdoors and probably away from Ullapool, having this hotel as a stop-point, it is great value for money. This was my second visit, as...

Not sure if because it was a cheap Groupon deal, but found Hotel lacking, the meals, and beds and bedding okay. Bath very old, cracked toilet. Bedroom doors chipped paintwork, not a Bespoke Hotel.. They need to give this early attention as it lets the Hotel down.

After a long journey with some stops on the way we arrived at the hotel. Got a really nice room. just time for dinner and could not fault the meals or the service. The staff could not do enough for you. A roaring fire in the lounge. Friday and Sunday we had some entertainment but nothing on Saturday and it... More

Got this as a groupon deal, can't beat the value for money, though I'd skip the inclusive dinner, it was really quite poor, and I'd live without the bottle of faux champagne (though my other half didn't mind it!). Breakfasts were very good though ideally they might put another member of staff on to keep on top of the tables... More
