“Oh dear, this was painful to watch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We were here by chance over a feis (music festival) weekend, staying in a B&B. I felt so sorry for the waiting staff: two to cover quite a big dining room, and they had to take food through to the bar and bring our drinks back. We'd booked. Chaos in food orders: some time after my husband ordered beef, he was told it was off, finished. My husband's starter arrived without mine; the waiter apologised, but I think the kitchen were at fault. Other tables made orders and then ages later were told that one or more items were off. It got a bit Fawlty Towers. The food was okay, but showing signs of a kitchen not coping: my salad had too much lemon juice on. We met a couple outside who'd refused to pay their bill. I submitted a web comment to the hotel - no response 24 hours later,so writing this now. Beware at busy times! Management should've done better than this - where were they to support staff?

“Argyll Hotel Ullapool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Our group of 7 dined at the Argyll and although the food was good the service was extremely slow and a family of 3 arriving after us got served a good while before us, it took an hour and ten minutes for the first course to arrive another long interval till the main appeared. This meant those not taking a starter waited nearly two hours to be served. The quality was good but not exceptional. We were not given any reason for this.

“What a pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We came upon The Argyll Hotel while out for a walk and saw the Sunday carvery lunch menu. We asked if they did it in the evening and they said they would (although don't normally)
Straightaway our impression was good,. We were taken to the loveliest little dining room at the back, another pleasant surprise.
The food we were served was second to none! I would highly recommend a visit to anyone looking for a good meal in Ullapool

“Good beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We went here for a drink each night as it had a great choice of real beers. The bar was very spacious and usually had some type of entertainment on.
