My husband and I stayed for two nights in July on our 'Babymoon'. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, relaxed and the complimentary afternoon tea gave us a taste of the exceptional foodie delights to come. Lesley and Colin have obviously worked extremely hard to cultivate a atmosphere of relaxation with attentive but not overbearing... More

We returned to The Albannach one year later and it was in the back of our minds that it may not match our memories. It has actually exceeded them! Our room, the Penthouse, is absolutely beautiful with a suite of rooms decorated tastefully. The Bose radio, excellent Wifi service, gorgeous Scottish Fine Soap products and windows in all directions add... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in May. From the minute we drove up to the hotel to unload our cases I knew this was not a place for me. The entrance was in die need of a good wash and brush up. Our suite (which cost us an arm and leg) was not as we expected. No... More

Olde worlde rustic Inn charm with Michelin fine food. Some, like your reviewer, will prefer the modern comforts of Inver lodge on the other side of Loch Inver ( see my review) but it's horses for courses. Dinner is a candlelit affair in two small dining rooms with a somewhat rigid set menu and seating / service times. If you... More

We like good food and know what to expect in a one star Michelin restaurant! A nice ambiance combined with amazing food and excellent service should result in a nice, round dining experience. Food must be of course tasty but also surprising in flavor and texture presented in an artful way. The Albannach however is cooking average food far away... More

We have recently returned from a touring holiday in North West Scotland and treated ourselves to Three nights in the Byre Suite. From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough for us, from providing afternoon tea on arrival to drying and returning our sodden walking gear after a wet walk in the hills. The Byre suite the... More

We recently stayed the weekend in the Byre Suite at this hotel and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and well looked after. The Suite itself is beautiful with everything and more you could want. It included a hot tub with views of Suilven through the trees. You were totally separate from the rest of... More

My husband booked us an evening meal there as a treat for my birthday as he had had excellent meals there before. The place has great views and the canapés offered with drinks were special and delicious:oysters. and langoustines. We had to settle for champagne(!) as the first three white wines we selected for the meal were unavailable and the... More

This is a wonderful friendly and homely five star hotel with a Michelin star restaurant that is well worth a visit. The welcome begins on arrival with coffee and home made cake in the conservatory with a choice of books and a great view; the owners make you feel at ease the moment you arrive. The rooms are individual in... More

Myself and my Fiance came to visit for two nights in April. The first thing that struck us was the friendliness and courtesy of the staff and owners. The room was beautiful and clean, good selection of teas and coffee. The location is very safe and secure. We had some afternoon tea, very good tea and some fine cakes. The... More
