We stayed here during a whistle stop tour of the western coast. We were welcomed with a smile by Charlie, the perfect host. The bedrooms were spacious and spotless and breakfast was delicious. If you are visiting Ullapool stay here, I recommend it highly.

We selected the Riverside after speaking to the staff at The Ceildih Place (where the wedding we were attending was being held). Any emails sent to the guest house were promptly replied to which is always a positive sign. Charlie and his lovely staff are delightful and friendly. We were greeted on arrival by Charlie and shown to all our... More

Fantastic hosts, room, food and location. We would stay here again! We had been travelling on a tour with Rabbies and this was the last place we stayed. Our host was very welcoming, friendly and professional. Great place!

This was our first stop on our Rabbies tour of the Hebrides Isles. We were very impressed by the accommodations and by the helpfulness and friendliness of the proprietors. The food was excellent and the proprietors even washed some of our clothes. We highly recommend the Riverside Guest House!

We had the front bedroom which was very roomy. Plenty of space for suitcases. A little bit of a walk from town and restaurants. We had trouble in the middle of the night with the toilet gurgling, waking us up. The host came right down and saw to it.

Charlie & his good lady run a great guest house. clean, comfortable & very flexible to come and go as you please. Charlie gives good advice on places to eat, drink and visit in the area. I had to come back after Easter as I'd missed some beautiful roads and scenery. The breakfast alone is one of the best I've... More
