Since my last review from Oct 2012 I am sorry to report that we have just returned from our bi-annual trip to our cottage in Sutherland where we sadly had a very poor meal in your restaurant with unsatisfactory service on the 10th April. The waitress was a friendly young woman who I felt sure was doing her best but... More

My family and I rented a holiday home just about a mile out of tounge. We went to this hotel on the last night of our stay and could not be happier. They easily catered for our party of 7 with ease. One of our party has a sever nut allergy and was made to feel very safe. Waiter and... More

Had a three night break to look round the far NW of Scotland. Got mostly lucky with the weather but the hotel was the wee gem of the break. The staff were all absolutely brilliant, and the room was really nice if a bit old style (rather 1970 as someone has said) but it was spotless and had all you... More

The Ben Loyal Hotel does actually deserve all the good reviews I read about it ! We stayed there for two nights and it was a very pleasant stay. The staff are welcoming and the rooms are modern and comfy. They serve very decent food in the bar and the restaurant (open 7 days a week all year) and the... More

Booking in here for a night in September, and from the icon photo, I was expected a small converted croft sort of place. Instead, it was a roomy rather modern (well, 1970's) sort of place. Quiet spacious and comfortable :-) Dinner - a quick Macaroni Cheese n Chips - very good and very satisfying. Breakfast - Again very good, and... More

Tongue is a lovely place but a long drive to get to. I had a single room which was relatively small (not surprising) with a largish bathroom - no bath just a shower unit. The bed was relatively comfortable although a little creaky. I ate in the bar and the food was excellent - definitely to be recommended. The breakfast... More

Just back from three superb nights at this hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food really was great. We enjoyed seafood every evening, the baked cod tails were a real highlight. Stayed in room 1 and the view from it was fantastic across to Castle Varrich and Ben Loyal. Facilities at the hotel were just... More

Had lunch in The Ben Loyal 2 weeks ago with my partner and 2 friends to celebrate a friends birthday. We had lovely day, the sun shone and so did our lunch. We had lovely starters then moved onto the main courses. Three of us had whole lobster each with choices of garlic butter or lemon butter or Thermidor and... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and was very impressed with this little hotel! Tongue is certainly an interesting stop in the Highlands and the Ben Loyal is worth a stay. The service and food were great.
