Our family had a great meal and dinner after our roundtrip in Speyside, the girls just LOVED the sticky toffee pudding. The fish and wine was excellent too. The rooms are nicely done up, we had a great stay! Ullapool is cool!

From check-in to check-out (and everything in between) our stay at the Arch Inn couldn't have been better. After a very long drive we were warmly greeted at the bar of this traditional old inn and shown to our room. The waterside view room was small but perfectly formed and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a... More

My wife considers herself as a connoisseur of Scallops. Today, she had the finest scallops she has ever tasted. My own fish in batter was very good, We rate the chef here very highly. The good weather helped, but eating outside with great views

Booked special Valentine meal for two and couldn't fault it if I tried. Nice decorations without being twee, stylish set up. All courses of the meal were delicious, beautifully presented and even side dishes were cooked thoughtfully and well balanced. Service was friendly and easy going. It's been a long time since we had such a good meal in such... More

Ok my stay was good room lovely and clean. And warm. Breakfast was ok no frills but cooked well. The bar was full of locals and it was like a seen from a western you walk in and everyone stops what there doing to turn round and look at you. Very funny i must admit. The only downside was there...

We stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed it so when we got cold in our campervan we decided to have a warm up in Ullapool. The Arch Inn has smartened up the rooms, which were never too bad. We had a very friendly welcome and a room with a view over the harbour. Everything clean and quite stylish... More

An absolute gem of a hotel, this place is well worth a visit whether you're looking for accommodation, a meal or just a dram in the extremely well-stocked bar. I travelled with a band who were booked to play here recently and the hospitality we received from all the staff was second to none. Amazing food with some of the... More

Good sized and clean room, decent food offering and good location. Walls between rooms are a little thin though.......Bar is functional but could have 'softer' furnishings just like the restaurant,car parking is quite limited

We stayed here for one night last June, when on a trip round northern Scotland. Location is great, next to the ferry terminal and some shops and restaurants. Our room was spacious and modern, with great views. The toilet seat was broken and the bathroom could have been a little cleaner, and there was only one towel so we had... More

I only went here for food, and I was glad I did. The steak was cooked exactly as I asked, plenty on the plate. Desert, well lets just say, I had a second desert cause the first portion tasted so damn fine!
