Over priced

this hotel is overpriced, especially considering it needs a full upgrade. The fact that breakfast is not included in the accommodation charge just reinforced that I would not recommend it.

Great fresh seafood, real ale, situated on the seafront, near the ferry to The Isle of Lewis. Great views across Loch Broom. Ullapool is an excellent base for plenty of fine mountains. The nightlife isn't that bad either.

Having wandered along the front in Ullapool deciding where to go for lunch this is where we choose. It was so nice to come off the cold street into such a cosy atmosphere and luckily there was a table free beside a roaring open fire. The lunch menu was very reasonable, I ordered the starter portion of mussels and was... More

The staff were very nice and obliging ,the fish we had was good and the portion sizes were reasonable all except for the ribeye steak which was more like a minute steak and was... More

We ate in bar during our 2 night stay, you will not be disappointed with the quality of the food as well as the portion sizes. They are pet friendly, in the bar area, so this was a bonus for us.
