Had a one night stay here last week. Extremely comfortable rooms and outstanding service from Julia and the team (they couldn't do enough, including helping book excursions). Together with the wonderful dining and the magnificent scenery of Wester Ross, this is a fantastic place to stay.

We stayed in the boathouse. It was really good and the hotel staff couldn't have been nicer. Amazing location with incredible views. The food in the bar was good. We also climbed at Reiff which is an amazing location and a must go area for rock-climbers

We stopped off at the Summer Isles Hotel for one night booking a three course meal in advance. We were housed in one of the wooden lodges with no view. The bathroom was large and clean and bedroom furnishings were ok but not luxurious and the room had a really strong smell of air freshener possibly to hide a damp... More

Dear Luneside Thank you for your feedback on your stay at the Summer Isles Hotel. It is regrettable that the room you stayed in did not meet your expectations; these rooms boast the "eco look”. to that end we do like that the foliage is a little higher, but certainly not overgrown, in order to create the correct ambience. It... More

I had been planning to visit for somet time and finally got around to it, unfortunately there was a confusion with the booking and 24 hours after booking I got an email telling me the room I had booked wasn't available but that I could have a basic room at a reduced price and a bottle of wine with my...

Just the best comfort and attention in a blissfully quiet spot; staff attentive and food generally excellent, although my dinner was diminished by tough duck, rather than tough luck. But the breakfast was among the best I have ever had.

We stayed a night at the Summer Isles Hotel during our honey moon in Scotland. The Hotel in itself is located in a gorgeous area, the bow windows from the rooms have a fantastic view on the Loch below. Service is lovely, food is excellent, the wine and whisky card is amazing.

We stayed for 2 nights and overall were a bit disappointed with the experience. We were lodged in one of the 3 turf roofed rooms that are to the left of the hotel as you face it. I would advise avoiding these if possible. The rooms are very dark due to the trees growing immediately outside and they block a... More

A lovely place to spend time on this quietly beautiful stretch of coast. Our room was one of three in the main building and was quiet and comfortable with a big bathroom and endless (very) hot water. We ate in both the bar and restaurant and both meals were good, including the best oysters we have yet had on northwest... More

We stayed in the Hotel on 27th June for one night. Our room was situated just off the main building and had a seaview (extra cost). We were met by Chris when we arrived at the main door who introduced himself and showed me to our room which was split level. Very clean and tidy. The taster menu at £59.00... More

Rented the Log House for three days, did not see any of the hotel rooms. Quite pricey ( about $550/night), but all other local accommodations were ful and we were visiting friends in nearby Altandhu. Just getting here requires a bit of intestinal fortitude, as it requires navigating about 20+ miles of single lane, winding hillside road. Once here, the... More
