We've been many times for meals but this was our first overnight stay. It was truly fantastic. Food was excellent, room was wonderful with awesome mountain and loch views. Staff deliver first class service. Highly recommend the langoustines.

As previously stated, a long way to go for a meal and a few drinks ( I live in Perthshire ,my son lives in Lanarkshire ), but the welcome, food ,views, rooms and fine drams make it worth the trip. Used to try and keep it a secret ,but to no avail. The Kylesku does what it says on the... More

We had been recommended this hotel on the basis of its restaurant and were not disappointed in this in the slightest. The food is fresh, local and extremely well put together. Couple this with a magnificent view of the sunset of the lochs and it proved to be a terrific experience. The accommodation is also excellent and not just relent... More

The Kylesku Hotel is fantastic, we had a lovely stay. The place itself is spectacular and well worth the journey. The staff were really friendly and clearly love their jobs and have huge enthusiasm for the north west highlands. I had excellent scallops and prawns & chips. Husband had 5 plates of mixed seafood. Our room was adjacent to the... More

We stayed for nearly a week with two dogs and 3 children, so lots of potential for a less than completely tranquil time, but it was just wonderful. The setting is breathtaking. The hotel is perfect. The food is delicious, the restaurant clean, comfortable and non-stuffy, the bedrooms also very clean, comfortable and stylish, the lounge warm and inviting with... More

It was meant to be six of us for our birthdays: my husband’s and mine. Unfortunately, it turned out to be just three and a shorter stay by two nights. Amazing views all the way from Achiltilbuie. Good reception, very friendly staff. The hotel is not what you expect, just a small informal place, but then that is not what... More

Although I wrote a review when I had a wonderful stay two years ago, I was so impressed with the return trip that I decided to add to it! When you return to a hotel that must have seen hundreds of guests pass through since you were there before but that welcomes you like a good friend, that is something... More

Just back from a brilliant couple of nights at Kylesku Hotel. Wish we'd visited sooner. Magical spot and great place to stay. Tanja and Sonia have created something very special. We had a night at The Albannach on the way up and we'd recommend the combination of both. They're different but share a passion for local ingredients, imaginatively prepared. Although... More

We've been to the Kylesku hotel many times - it is a fair drive from where we stay- however it is well worth while. Every time my hubbie has the Seafood Platter (he can't get past this on the menu) and even though some of the items were not available, the waitress explained what they had added to make up... More

Dear mags h, What a lovely review! Thank you. I am pleased to read that you were explained what was or wasn't on the seafood platter when you come to visit us. We have to rely on the day's catch and natural cycles. At the moment, we are unable to get our local mussels as the alga bloom is in... More

I have been staying and eating at this wonderful hotel over many years.(Indeed I will be back in the Autumn.)I have always enjoyed all of my visits and only once,a few years ago had a below par meal(far too salty mussels).However,the current owners and their team have improved the place significantly and undertaken some super refurbishment,which is on-going.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm welcome in the heart of real Highland wilderness. Kylesku is a delightfully peaceful village on the shores of two large sea-lochs, Loch Glendhu & Loch Glencoul. Set in the heart of real Highland wilderness, it makes a perfect base for exploring Sutherland and North West Scotland.The Kylesku Hotel itself is an old coaching inn dating from 1680, and is situated by the former ferry slipway on the shores of the loch. The hotel, bar and restaurant are open to residents & non-residents alike. It is an independently run small hotel with current owners Tanja Lister & Sonia Virechauveix eager to provide a warm welcome.The views from the hotel overlooking the loch and the local mountains are awesome with the bar, restaurant & lounge providing a perfect vantage point for overseeing the local wildlife - an abundance of seals, red deer and birds, or even our more elusive neighbour, the local otter.We are passionate about food, and with local fishing boats landing daily in Kylesku, seafood is a speciality. Fresh langoustines, lobsters, spineys, crabs, mussels and haddock are available, alongside quality meat & game. We also offer a choice of vegetarian options, all of which can be washed down with wide selection of wines, beers & malt whiskies. We are proud to be included in the 2012 Michelin Guide to Eating in Pubs. Our aim is simple: to tempt you with the freshest, local, quality food, in welcoming, friendly and comfortable surroundings. We hope our wealth of local knowledge will help you to get the most out of your stay here. There is something for everyone, be it walking, climbing, fishing, wildlife watching or simply combing the many deserted white sandy beaches of the North West Coast. We are happy to help you to plan your itineraries whether by car, on foot or pedal power.Our hotel is also featured in the 2012 Good Hotel Guide and in Claire MacDonald’s famous recipe book Scottish Highland Hospitality, where she states that “Kylesku Hotel combines everything I consider to be essential for a visitor to the Highlands - comfort, really good food in an old hotel with all the present-day amenities, and truly spectacular scenery wherever you look.” ... more   less
