Spent 1 night here, thoroughly enjoyed it. Small and perfect. Finding it was easy and check in good. I had requested no stairs if possible and we were given a choice of rooms. Room small but had everything in it. Bed was only 4'6'' but was ok for us. Might not suit everybody. Staff were excellent from check in to... More

We only ate here but stayed at the guest house next door. We had 3 evening meals here and were made most welcome by Fergus and the rest of the staff. The meals were good quality and the service friendly. The views from the dining room and guest lounge are amazing and everyone who arrives seems to make a dash... More

Third visit here and had a great time yet again. The food is fantastic, the scenery is stunning and its great value. Bedrooms are clean, staff friendly and you wake up to clean mountain/sea air!!! The only problem we had this time was a group who constantly banged around in their rooms (even at 5am) which was a bit annoying!

Stayed for 3 nights in the Hotel which has been refurbished since our last visit. Magnificent views over the Kyle of Tongue with Ben Loyal and Ben Hope in the distance. Room small but very comfortable, breakfast excellent and extremely friendly and efficient. We liked that they say on the Menu to be patient as the food is freshly prepared,... More

Stayed at the Ben Loyal, lodge \ self catering house which is next to the hotel. This comfortable house sleeps 6 and has 3 showers and decent sized bedrooms. It was very well heated and very warm to come back to when you have been out all day in the wilds of Sutherland. The kitchen is well equipped as is... More

Happy there actually is a place to stay in this Northern outpost, we arrived on a cold rainy night in october, and waited for hostess to tend to pub guests. We were then shown to our room which took us up several flights of stairs, around corners, and through progressively colder hallways, till we arrived to our frozen chamber. I... More

It also has a washing machine (washing powder and fabric conditioner provided) and a dishwasher too. This apartment has a sitting room,kitchen,diningroom and 3 double en suite... More

I didn't actually get to stay here, so this is a slightly unusual review. I'd booked in for two nights in September, but just as I rounded the corner at Durness received a phone call telling me of a family emergency. As I was that near I drove by the hotel to inform them I'd have to cancel. They could... More

Eaten here twice and Fergus the chef is a star. Great food, for a hotel on the tip of Scotland you would expect perhaps low competition hence microwave style food. This isn't the case, Ii'veeaten here twice, curry and fish pie, the fish pie is better than that which I have eaten at Wright Bros in London. Would eat here... More
