This is a traditional pub with a lively bar which features live music on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The bar on Thursday evening was packed and very friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. We were allocated a very small room, namely room 3. This seems to happen to us regularly in this country, maybe because we are both... More

We stayed here before catching the ferry to Stornaway. Really nice hotel, room was very nice and the bar was great with fabulous haddock and chips! The only downside was that it was quite noisy overnight..... with it being a fairly old building it seemed that doors were constantly banging and there was a fire door at the end of... More

After walking around Ullapool looking for somewhere to eat , we came across the FBI (Ferry Boat In ). A busy small pub serving fantastic food. We were lucky to get a table, only two free! Even luckier were the landlady moved us to a window table when it became free, great views across the loch! Good serves, great selection... More

If you want a view of the bay this is the place and that view is worth a lot. Entering the ground floor we were a bit dubious, the first impression is of a place a bit run down but the bedroom was great, tastefully and recently decorated, bathroom too, very comfortable. If you want a smooth trendy place with... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group. Room on top floor. Freezing when we arrived. Soon warmed up. Nice to have a bath. View of the sea between chimneys. Lovely setting. Food in bar was good, mainly fish. Excellent sticky toffee pudding. Breakfasts had lots of choice. Place a little run down. Could do with tarting up in places.... More

Stayed one night having spent the day driving up London, and getting the ferry the next morning, so all we really wanted was a warm bed and lots of sleep. The room was at the front of the hotel, so noise from the bar was pretty bad. In the morning I tried to have a bath, but the mixer tap... More

Pleasant enough view over the Loch - nothing spectacular though. Lightning 6-day trip to Scotland. Stayed in Country House Hotels, very nice pub near Gleneagles, a crofter's cottage in the north and - The Ferry Boat Inn. Ullapool really hasn't got that much going for it these days - the glorious fishing days are behind it and - in my... More

Excellent location, our room was at the front so we had a great view but not suitable if you are a light sleeper due to noise from main road and throughout hotel, although it didn't bother us. The room was freezing, no double glazing and electric heater took a long time to heat room but when it did eventually warm... More

Room spotlessly clean but VERY small and cramped. Walls paper thin - could hear guy next door on his phone. Glad we were only booked for 1 night. Breakfast was additional but wonderful choices and extremely good - however hubby wasn't impressed by the halved lorne sausage that came with his breakfast but I was more than happy with my... More
