On the way back from a long day out decided to eat here. In a deathly silent atmosphere we ordered our meals, normal bar food, but it was well cooked and tasted okay. Only visit if you are desperate, but if you have to, take some entertainment with you!

Used this place a few times last year and twice to eat and drink this year. Barman/owner (I think) has a brilliant sense of humour if you start a crack with him. Tenants lager is kept well and so is the 80 shilling beer. Food is very well presented and tasty. Comes promptly and with a smile. Price is about... More

A warm welcome and good home cook meals. We ate here some days during our recent Mull holiday. Not 'Michelin Star', but it doesn't pretend to be. Just good service and good food at reasonable prices. Take a table at the back of the bar and look at the view.

If I had to assess the hotel on its décor it would fail. The rooms are tired and in need of renovation. But, and it's a big but, the lack of modernity is more than made up for by the willingness of the staff to go the extra mile for everyone. I wonder too if there is another Salen hotel... More

We stayed here for one night when we were on Mull for an event that meant we had to come in pretty late. The staff were more than helpful over this, and over our turning up after they'd finished serving dinner - they asked the chef to come back, just for us. Full marks there! The hotel itself is old-fashioned... More

We were attending a wedding on the Island of Mull. The wedding lasted 3 days and we decided to base ourselves at the Salen hotel. We arrived and were welcomed by the lady of the house who was very helpful. We were shown up to our room which was clean and quite presentable. We flitted back and forward for the... More

This hotel doesn't advertise itself as fancy or modern and I think if you take that into account then it does well. The hosts are great - very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Other staff are really lovely too! It's all very clean and lovely and warm. The room has what you need. The food is decent bar food. It's quite... More

We stayed in one of their simple dog-friendly chalets for a few days. Didn't anticipate dining in-house every night but the friendly owners and staff and good food kept us captive. Excellent value establishment with a good vibe - even after a long and tiring season!

Had a meal here every night for a week. Yes, it may be a no frills establishment, however, the food is good, honest, value for money, and, more importantly, very, very tasty, and the staff are very hospitable too. Can't wait to go back upon my next return to Mull.

We were 2 couples visiting the West of Scotland and by chance we were given this hotel's telephone number as a possible place to stay. How lucky were we! The rooms were very comfortable and ours especially very spacious. We stayed for dinner the 3 nights we were there sampling as many dishes as we could - excellent! A special... More
