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

whilst on holiday in the area we thought we will try the Summer Isles bar and then later in the week we would try the 'Signature' tasting menu - however our Bar experience was so bad we did not return. No staff in the bar when we arrived and had to look for someone to come. We ordered a bottle... More

This hotel is somewhat isolated, but the area is beautiful. We had a lovely bright room overlooking the islands. Our 'classic' meal was superb and other diners were raving over the signature tasting menu also available. They seem to have a first-rate chef. Overall an excellent and far too brief stay.

For me, this was a holiday in which to relax and recharge the batteries. Plenty walking and mountaineering if a physical holiday wanted. The Summer Isles hotel is excellent. A warm friendly family run hotel. Excellent food beautifully presented. Spotless clean. It is a long way north, but well worth the trip. Mona Thomson Dumfries.

The Review should be read with some Caveats The visit occurred whilst on a detour from the North Coast 500 route between stays at Forss House and Kinloch lodge and just after a blown tyre on the back road from Loch Inver where we would have been stranded by the Car's useless wheel wrench (Jaguar Ford owners beware) without the...

A second visit, based on the hotels excellent location and some mediocre experiences in Ullapool over the years. Our room was in a nearby annex, seemed recently decorated and took the form of a split level junior suite with a sitting area then up a few steps to a large bed and bathroom. It was very nice, comfortable and it... More

Worth the trip for the views and scenery. Hotel is pretty with nice staff. Good food to be had in the informal bar next door. We preferred our dinner here to the more formal one in the main restaurant. Rooms are fine, a bit basic and in the annexe the walls are very thin so you can hear even conversation... More
