I'd seen this hotel several times before when visiting this part of Scotland but its traditional , somewhat dowdy appearance had rather put me off. But then when our previous choice in Durness announced that they weren't going to serve meals any more it forced a rethink and a welcome re-appraisal. The public areas and our room were bright, light... More

I felt I simply must leave a review as we have stayed at the Kyelsku Hotel many times and have just booked to return in October this year. Our eight-year-old daughter is completely besotted with the Hotel, its staff, and the location, as are we. Sincerely, we loved Kylesku just the way it used to be but are really looking... More

After a brilliantly designed and built extension, the Kylesku hotel is even better and busier than ever. This does not however detract or alter the exceptional levels of service, standard of the food and the friendly but still professional service from all the staff and both the owners. The food is so well cooked the bar well stocked and as... More

We visited the hotel for an evening meal twice during our recent stay in the area. On both occasions the food was excellent with my dish - seared scallops on a bed of kedgeree - superb. But the second visit was marred by a dispute over our booking. Because it was a special occasion we had booked several weeks earlier... More

The Kylesku Hotel is situated at the foot of a breathtaking view, has very comfortable, well-kept, modern rooms, and a wonderful restaurant and bar, but the most impressive aspect of the establishment is the personal attention of the manager. Mark, the manager, provided us with weather reports, travel tips, event information, and inside information for each of our days in... More

This place is stunning: well run and a great team. Food delicious. We brought friends to whom we'd raved about this place and they loved it too. Tania was so helpful and knowledgable giving us ideas for what to do on our one full day there when there was an easterly gale blowing and she was happy to lend us... More

This is my second stay at Kylesku and I came with very high expectations based on my previous visit. We were not disappointed in any way. The dining area is much improved with gorgeous loch side views from almost every table. The hotel is furnished in a contemporary style which makes guests and visitors feel welcome and at home. The...

Confession time, I have been a regular visitor to this hotel for 14 years. In qualification I should add that am not the sort that tends to go back anywhere: the world is just too big for that. But I cannot get enough of this hotel, and that is not just down to the location, which has got to be... More

The major refurbishment has really paid off. The public spaces have been extended and bring so much more light and the magnificent views into every corner of the restaurant and bar. The annex, which was previously a bit dark and tired is now a stunning suite of rooms, the upper rooms boasting verandas overlooking That View. So, the hotel is... More

Dear RichardW68, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Since the refit, we have always been a little worried about our returning guests maybe not enjoying the "new look". For that reason, we are keeping to what we do best: welcoming and looking after everyone with the same friendly atmosphere. We all look forward to seeing you again very... More

Idyllic location, really friendly and efficient team of staff. The food is magnificent and locally sourced (the full Scottish breakfast and smoked trout are superb, the seafood dinners equally so - the lobster we had on our last night really was just off the boat (I saw the boat coming in!)), the bar is well stocked with real ales in...

Dear Peter F, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. You clearly did enjoy your time in Sutherland. And all it has to offer! You are right about the lobsters, often they do not even make it to the kitchen door before they are sold... I hope you will be able to return soon for... More
