To start a review of this extraordinary establishment is the hardest task due to the extremely large numbers of superlatives required in its description . Without kids ( now grown up) , and with a renewed sense of adventure , my wife and I stayed here over New Year 2016 for Hogmanay , 3 nights 30th to 1st January .... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Byre Suite at this hotel. It had its own outside hot tub which was lovely. The suite was very comfortable with all you could ask for. The meals from breakfast to afternoon tea and then the 6 course dinner were all amazing. Very friendly staff. Loved every minute of our stay.

I've just been reading through the previous half-dozen reviews, and I agree with everything ! We didn't stay, just went for a meal, to celebrate our Ruby Wedding anniversary, and had the best meal we have had for years - and we've had some really good ones. All that needs to be said is "WOW!" - go.

The hotel is charming, romantic and welcoming. Warm interiors and friendly staff make this a delight from reservation to leaving with wind swept views of the country side and convenient location. The owners took great care of us bending over backwards to help us with an early breakfast and trying to make it special for reasons I won't go in... More

After visiting Lochinver with our children a few years ago, my wife and I promised ourselves that we would make it back one day and eat at The Albannach. Our wedding anniversary made a suitable excuse for splashing out £70 a head for the set menu. Despite the great reviews, we did wonder if it might be over-rated... We stayed... More

People have been recommending this hotel for years and we feared it might have been over-hyped. Not at all. The food really is excellent - perfectly cooked langoustines in delicious sauce, wonderful game, inspirational desserts. This is a beautiful corner of Scotland with lovely walks through breathtaking scenery. We saw so few people, it was hard to believe it was... More

My wife and I have just returned from our latest stay in the wonderful Albannach, now in its 25th year - we have managed to visit at least once in every one of those 25 years. For this review, I want to mention in particular the various touches which make the place so special and such a by-word for unpretentious... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the top floor suite here. Great bed, great views, very friendly staff and a wonderful meal. The staircase up is steep and creaky but the staff insist on taking all the luggage so that works out just fine. We will definitely return.

I heard about this place from a contestant on a quiz show who wanted to win some money to bring his wife! I am so glad I tuned in for that show because it was everything I expected and much more besides. We stayed in "The Byre" room on 24th June and it was utterly fantastic. Absolutely everything from the... More

Originally from Scotland, I've lived in Canada for years & we have wonderful restaurants here but Micheline doesn't star them. So, when I was researching what to do during our family get together trip to Drumbeg, Assynt, I was excited to read about The Albannach and booked up for dinner quite far in advance. After negotiating 14 miles of single... More
