A very decent hotel in a quiet part of The Highlands. Perfectly clean and orderly rooms with nice bathrooms. A very good breakfast, offering my favourite of smoked fish and eggs (perfect with brown toast and coffee). There was one item amiss. Who thinks that McEwan's is good beer? I know it isn't but the landlady defended it vigorously. Tut... More

If your planning to take a dog with you dont worry the staff will make your pet feel welcome.Great location for anyone planning to do hill walking , mountain biking or just a... More

Tastiest breakfast in a long time. Worst service, rude waitress with attitude! Had to almost fight with her to get a pot of tea - not kidding! Come on its a tea bag in boiling water, cost price about 2p, stop being so tight.

Stayed here for 4 nights while in the highlands..the hotel and the room was very nice...we ate there every night and the food was faultless, the staff were all friendly and helpful with local knowledge. We would not hesitate to book again in the future.

I stayed at Lairg Highland Hotel after visiting the north coast. The drive to the hotel led me through the most beautiful countryside. The room I stayed in was recently decorated and was clean. The size was correct for a single room. The on-site restaurant is very convenient and serves good food. Unfortunately the Wifi didn't work very well. The... More

Beautiful little room which seems to be recently refreshed, warm hospitality. Our room was above the kitchen but the noise was not really a problem for us and stopped from 9.30 pm to 8.00 am. The lady honnestly warned us when we arrived. A little bit expensive (149£ a night for 2 persons in July) for the place but everything... More

Pleasant stay at this small hotel. Lairg is the crossroads to the Northern Highlands so it was a great base to tour in the area. Bedroom was pleasant - each has a different décor- with small shower room attached. Comfortable sofa and good view across the main street to the Post office opposite. Downstairs was a comfortable lounge bar cum... More

Had a 'true' single room here- that is, single bed and not a lot of room to move around it. Clean and warm though. Shower didn't work, so I used the one in my companions room. No residents' lounge, so it was either the room or the bar as far as passing the time went. This may be temporary, as... More

We came into Lairg on our journey from the North coast and were attracted to the tea and sandwiches invitation posted outside the hotel. Evidence of very recent and effective redecoration and the whole was presented tastefully and well. Our orders for tea and sandwiches were taken swiftly and arrived in good time. Very fair price for a lunchtime snack.
