Second visit to this excellent eatery. Keen competition for seats in the bar so you need to be early but it's worth the effort. More space for casual callers would be a real bonus. Fish and chips here are hard to beat. We haven't stayed here as the rooms are pricey.

Visited here just for a meal two years ago, food was good and we ate in the round part of the hotel, which was for general public use, it seems this is no longer the case, you are now all squeezed into the front entrance and bar area, the tables are far too close together which makes it very uncomfortable...

Sadly, despite technically allowing dogs, you are forced to accept the less good rooms in the hotel, for a whopping £15 a night surcharge. In addition to this, none of the public areas allow dogs meaning that you're either trapped in your dark back room with your dog or forced to roam outside in what could be terrible weather. Personally,... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights from 05/10/2014 as a short 'mini-moon'. It was a great place to relax and unwind after the craziness of our wedding. The setting is picture perfect, ferry to Lismore is on your doorstep and the beach is right there. Staff were welcoming and accomodating. reliable wifi. Great food, especially the breakfast.... More

The seafood is superb. I had the seafood platter. The other dishes also do not disappoint, my husband enjoyed the venison. Breakfast was also of a very high quality. The room was plain but comfortable and the shower room although small was beautifully decorated. The sea view was lovely, watching the little ferry coming in. The walk up behind the... More

Stayed here many times over the years and different ownerships . So glad to see that the standards and quality have not only been maintained , but improved. Perfect waterside location complemented with an excellent seafood biased menu- just as it should be. Oh we'll be back!

Superb location with spectacular views. The food was of a high quality, with very generous portion sizes. Friendly and attentive staff. Very accommodating and helpful from a coeliac/gluten free perspective.

We stay here religiously every year on the annual trip up to thurso. The staff are always second to none and the food is always unrivaled and unmatched. Please see my pictures. But the one thing which is remarkable is the stunning sunset

These are 2 of the main areas of our establishment at which we work extremely hard trying to 'reach perfection'. The sunsets are , as you say, 'remarkable', but sadly this is one area we... More

This small, intimate hotel and restaurant has it all - incredible views across Loch Linnhe, friendly personal service, cozy bar, and the best seafood around. It is not a coincidence that it received three Scottish Hotel awards in 2014. It is my favorite small hotel/restaurant in Scotland.
