We had a lovely experiene at this hotel, cannot fault it. Delightful rooms with beautiful bathrooms and stunning views, and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic, everyone was attentive and friendly. If you need a base while exploring that part of Scotland, I highly recommend it.

As has been previously mentioned, this hotel is quite a long way off the main road, and about an hour's drive from Ullapool, however, it was worth the journey. We were welcomed by the manager, and shown to our room, which was quite large, and well appointed, with a huge bathroom. We had opted for the "Tasting Menu", and were... More

A real treat, and worth the long journey. We stayed in in Tanera Mor and loved our room, the view from the lounge was stunning, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom spacious and the shower was super-powerful. The only thing that could be improved was the tea tray, which was not "deluxe". We had one meal in the bar where... More

I have waited a week to review this hotel as I wanted to reflect on our poor experience here so I can give you a fair and balanced review and not an disappointed knee jerk reaction to the staffs attitude, if you check out my reviews and "thank yous" you will see I do not give two star rating lightly....

I am writing two reviews for the Summer Isles .. One in capacity as a resident for two nights, and the other in capacity as a diner. I was booked originally for one night in Matthews Cottage, and two days prior, I changed to two nights. When I arrived, it appears there was confusion over whether I was arriving for... More

I am hesitant to spread the good word about this place, only because I want to keep it all to myself. What a great place; the scenery is idyllic, the food was great; and i really liked their green focus (they literally have a green roof).

The location is great. On this occasion we were helped by good weather. Expect a long drive in from the main road. When you get there however there is no need to go anywhere. The hotel is small and pleasant. We were met on arrival by Julia (owner). We had an excellent dinner in the bar (seafood platter and steak... More

This is a truly idyllic area, and worth the 15 mile drive from the main road.We were warmly welcomed, and our room was spacious and supplied with every comfort on top of the amazing sea views. The Mackay room is one of the best in the hotel, but does come with a steep price tag! We found the young friendly... More

A world class hotel and restaurant in the middle of one of the greatest parts of Scotland! Totally unexpected. This was a Michelin-Star quality dining experience, with many local ingredients, served and narrated expertly. Do yourself a favor and experience this for yourself.
