Quaint small inn. Very clean, comfortable rooms, in good repair. Quiet location near the walking trails by the river. Walking distance to the centre of town and all restaurants. They provided your choice of cold cereals, continental breakfast or full Scottish breakfast.

The Riverside had very clean, large rooms, along with a friendly staff who are very knowledgeable about activities, restaurants, and the surrounding area. The Scottish breakfast in the morning was wonderful and one of the best during my entire Scotland trip. We had a fantastic time getting to know the lovely couple who run the guest house and exploring Ullapool.... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights. Room was great, owners were very helpful and the breakfast was top notch. Great value for money. Looking forward to staying there again next time I go back to Ullapool.

Very clean, compact rooms with ensuite bathrooms. Mattresses not terribly comfortable, pillows in rooms 5&6 need to be replaced. 5 minute walk down to the waterfront and restaurants. Comfortable sitting room, good full breakfast with several options including vegetarian. Small croissants and other breakfast rolls soft, mushy and out of a package from the local Tesco market. Good French press... More

Room was excellent a good size and very clean. The full Scottish breakfast sets you up for the day. Will definitely return in the future. Charlie recommended The Arch for an evening meal where the food was excellent. Biker friendly.

My husband and I were on a trip with Rabbie’s Trail Burners stopping at Ullapool on our return to Edinburgh. They booked us at the Riverside Guest House. While we basically were there for only about 15 hours we got a good feel for Charlie’s hospitality. We received a warm welcome and advice on good places for dinner. Our room... More

We stayed for one night on our way to Stornoway. A very clean and comfortable guest house, within five minutes walk of the ferry terminal and harbour. There are pubs and restaurants nearby for an evening meal, and a supermarket (every little helps...) just around the corner. The breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, and a Scottish breakfast cooked... More

I spent one night here on a Rabbies tour of Lewis and Syke. What a wonderful place it's like being at home but some body else cooks and makes the bed for you! The whole place is immaculate so clean with lots of cheerful pictures on the walls. There is a living room where you can chill out too with... More

We stayed in this guest house during our trip on NC500 and it was definitely the best and very good value. The accommodation was very clean and bright, our room was a good size and the breakfast was excellent. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. He recommended an amazing restaurant in Ullapool -The Arch - and also an additional... More
