Lairg is a funny old place. There’s not much there but it is the gateway to some astonishing scenery. In the midst of this paucity of choice, there’s the Lairg Highland Hotel. Now let’s get this clear from the start, the LHH is not exactly decorated in the style that I would choose. It’s rather, errrr, traditional. Once you have... More

Our purpose was to cheer on our son-in-law on the last leg of his charity bike ride from Land's End to John O'Groats. The weather was perfect and we arrived in Lairg early evening at the same time as Mark. The hotel is charmingly old fashioned, we'll maintained and comfortable. The staff, friendly, willing and cheerful and the music blissfully... More

Friendly staff, good restaurant, very good breakfast, comfortable room and location convenient to my requirements as stop-over for End to End cycle ride. Also had somewhere under cover to keep my bicycle.

Basic hotel in the Lairg town center. Rooms are clean and look pretty, but are quite outdated. The door knob of our room fell off. Nobody was around to fix it, so we were moved to another room. The new room also looked very pretty, but when you went to the shower, the sewage did not work properly, so you... More

A recent visit to the hotel restaurant was very disappointing. Had taken visitors for a run up north and decided to use this place on the way home. A rather dour welcome but we were seated quickly with a wave of our waitresses hand, the place was not busy. Our friends are vegetarian and they were most disappointed with their... More

Having read all your other reviews you state your wife is vegetarian so I wonder why she ordered a non vegetarian pasta dish here? At no time during this month, to date, has an order for 2 vegetarian meals and a seafood pasta and fish and chips been placed?? At least 2 opportunities would have been presented to you to... More

Thank you so much for your review. It is comforting to know we are appreciated as all too often nowadays people are quick to criticise rather than say positive things. All the staff work very hard and I will pass your comments on to them. Thanks again. More
