“Lovely food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Just recently returned from a week's holiday in the Adnamurchan area during which, we ate at the Salen Hotel twice. The food is very good here and the hotel looks like it's recently been refurbished. The staff are very friendly and the landlord is a lovely guy. The service, however, is not that great but the food more than makes up for it and the atmosphere in the bar was very good. Will definitely go here again when we next visit the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We dined here two night on a row this week and were impressed with the quality of the food although the choices were somewhat limited. The staff were very friendly and went about their work with professionalism.
Overall we felt that we were offered value for money. Also for whisky lovers they have a good selection of malt whiskies.
Toilets are probably the best maintained that we have come across with excellent clean facilities.

Room Tip: Table booking is recommended as it gets busy in the summer period.

Staying in Glenborrodale we called in here for lunch on one of our day trips and were delighted we had.
The Fish and Chips were just outstanding, the fish meaty and moist in the crispest batter and the chips were the best we have tasted for a long time.The fresh salad just completed the generous plate.
Our young waitress was helpful and service was excellent,we just wished this was our local !

On our latest visit we celebrated my wife's 30th birthday with a table of 11 plus 3 young children. We sat in their newly refurbished conservatory which created a lovely environment for our meal. The menu was spot on as usual and everyone in our party enjoyed the choices offered. We all, apart from the children chose 3 courses all being served quickly and being very well presented on their plates. The owners were there to chat with us and make sure we were all happy with our meals. I cannot reccommend the Salen Hotel enough!

This place is becoming our local - pub and restaurant. From the warmth of the welcome to the final bill it's all very pleasant. A new chef recently has changed the menu and the food remains at it's previous high standard, and reasonable priced too. Food is local and tasty. Have never stayed there but if the accommodation is as good as the pub and restaurant then it would be a great place to stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We arrived wet from cycling and were shown the boiler room where we could dry clothes. We were also shown a garage where we could leave our bikes. However we found these had been moved the next morning and both developed niggles after that. We didnt have dinner but breakfast was Ok. They dont do a buffet so you order your conflakes and that was the only place we encountered that did that. The room was cramped but in good condition. The bathroom was good and the shower excellent; strong, hot and spacious. I found sleep hard to come by as the room seemed a little airless and the bed was extremely soft, so beware those who, like me have backs that need firm support. We found the staff to be brisk.

We have been going to Salen for a number of years and have seen this hotel transform into a real gem. We have not stayed here but have really enjoyed some lovely food in the restaurant. always a good choice on the menu and the specials board, all good local food. A real treat, had a couple of meals there last week and would definitely recommend if you are in the area
