Having had dinner at the Kylesku Hotel last year, my wife and I were determined to experience a longer stay and several meals in the restaurant. Our accommodation was booked for the night after the Kylesku reopened and we were on tenterhooks, our stay might be cancelled. But a reassuring phone conversation confirmed our stay was on, and we were... More

Stayed for a week soon after it re-opened earlier this month and hugely enjoyed the visit. The friendly atmosphere pervades the whole place and the way the restaurant and bar have been opened up with the greater spaciousness and spectacular views has been exceptionally clever. If there is an architectural award for this kind of renovation then Kylesku should walk... More

Absolute gem we found by chance while driving up the coast road. Newly refurbished restaurant, local suppliers and great feedback and education from staff. Service was good, food delicious and view brilliant and atmospheric. Don't miss out on this great place if you are passing.

We stayed here for four nights & truly had an amazing experience. The hotel & restaurant owners & staff were absolutely exceptional in every way; friendly, accommodating, helpful & fun. The restaurant & bar were recently renovated & provided warm cosy evenings after a day out walking with the most delicious & fresh seafood you could ask for. I couldn't... More

We stopped by for lunch - the thing is we almost didn't stop and that would have been SUCH a mistake. The food was fantastic. I had fish and chips, my husband had chicken Kiev with potatoes, radishes and onions and our daughter had a haggis stuffed beef olive served with mashed potatoes, turnip, kale and of course gravy. We... More

Dear Duncan730, Thank you so much for your review. I will admit it now, we were anxious on opening day, hoping everything would be well received and run smoothly. It was a big change we undertook and yet we are still the same people offering the same service and care to everyone coming through our doors. I hope it will... More

This was my first stop on a 3 night road trip around the West Coast. Based on the previous reviews on here I was sold and the price was very reasonable given breakfast was included. Beautiful scenery outside the hotel, food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was cosy and clean, and even having... More

Dear Mouse1903, I am very touched that even after a few months, you remember your experience of the Kylesku with such fondness. It would be a pleasure to welcome your family and get everyone to discover this "undiscovered" part of the Highlands. The room you describe is of of our 2 very small attic rooms. Whilst not en-suite each of... More
