The Arch Inn is in a great location and we had a comfortable night in a nicely appointed room on the first floor. The walls and ceiling were a little thin but fortunately our neighbours were quiet and we weren't bothered too much. Two Tunnocks Caramel Wafers on the tea tray in our room was a nice touch and very... More

This was our second visit for Sunday lunch. On our first vist we had an excellent meal in lovely surroundings, white tablecloths etc.. We had a beautiful Sunday roast, but that was a couple of years ago. Well now it is just a pub lunch, no tablecloths and an uninspiring menu. There is no special board during the day. We... More

The hotel was lovely and excellent views. The food was great except I chose lobster as a treat and it was overcooked but not being a lobster expert didn't know enough to complain and at £25 it was steep so needed. All in all a great place to stay.

Stayed for one night enroute to John O’Groats. Couldn't have been better. Best food on our trip and fantastic room with a view. Tremendous atmosphere with live music and dancing till the early hours. .

Stayed here with a bunch of fellow cyclists on the way to John O'Groats. Superb food, very comfortable accommodation and a brilliant fizzing atmosphere. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. The breakfast was a triumph as well.

Achiltibuie scallops are a must. The other dishes a excellent as well. Scottish cheeseboard is the best I've had. The staff are friendly and work... More

We only stayed at The Arch Inn for one night and arrived early evening after a days travelling. Room was clean, beds comfortable, good wifi, shower and bathroom was a bit small though. The hotel is very well located, just a short walk along the sea front from the ferry terminal. We had an evening meal and breakfast in the... More

The Arch Inn is one of the few hotels in the Scottish Highlands to offer a single ensuite room at a reasonable price. It's also in a really convenient location, just a short walk along the sea front from the ferry terminal. A cooked Scottish breakfast sends you off well prepared for hiking, boat trips or other outdoor activities. Dinner... More
