We also arrived unexpectedly at this hotel on Monday 11th August after a long day travelling and failing to get to Ullapool by different routes but because of landslides on the roads we were unable to reach our destination. Our only option was to find alternative accomodation and try to get to Ullapool on the Tuesday. We were advised to... More

Arrived rather late as had problems with traffic and the weather, even though it was getting on for 9pm the hotel manager greeted us on the bus bus and explained what was what and we all still got an...

We arrived at the Bay Highland Hotel Strathpeffer unexpectedly on Monday 11th August 2014 after being unable to reach the Bay Hotel Gairloch due to the road being impassable by flooding. We were treated to a very warm welcome by the manager and the receptionist who made every effort to secure us accommodation within the hotel. We were immediately impressed... More

The value at Shearings is very good. Location is fantastic and rooms are spacious and comfortable. Service is excellent. Laura was very helpful on reception and Uvis our waiter was superb. The entertainer Ronnie Ross is the best in Scotland in my opinion and I've been to most of the Shearings hotels in Scotland. It was worth the money just... More

We were traveling around Scotland with my friend and were staying in this hotel for 2 nights. The reception staff (sorry, don't know that young boys name) was really nice - we arrived late evening at 6 Aug, were tired after 7 hours of non-stop drive, and hungry. Kitchen wasn't working at that time, but the receptionist was so nice,... More

Thank you for your review. Summer is very busy time year us. The price you paid for the room offers a very good value for money considering it was for two people for two nights including breakfast. If you had contacted reception we would have been happy to offer you a change of room or a full refund. When our... More

This was a coach trip and from the point of arrival it was evident it would be o.k. 1. Bags collected from coach AND taken to room. 2.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Peacefully set in its own grounds with lovely views over the colourful village square, this chateau style hotel’s traditional features have been carefully retained to strike just the right Highland note. A warm welcoming feeling comes as much from the friendly staff as from the fine wood panelled public rooms which have been carefully preserved. Strathpeffer itself is just steps away from the hotel and is renowned as an attractive Highland spa resort with fabulous Victorian architecture. Be sure to enjoy the scenic views of the village below from the open veranda. The massive peak of Ben Wyvis is the backdrop to this charming village. It’s a perfect base from which to explore Scotland’s dramatic Northern Highlands – mountainous countryside, sparkling streams, waterfalls and golden shores. ... more   less
