“Quirky accommodation in the highlands”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

Ceilidh place is def different. A book shop and bar restaurant are bar of the hotel which also offers free wifi. The coverage is a bit hit and miss right enough. There is a large guest lounge with an honesty bar which is a nice touch.
Rooms have a selection of books chosen by locals which is a good idea but not sure how many would stay long enough to take advantage. Good for generating ideas though and you can always buy a copy in the book shop to take away.
Our room had bath only when we would have preferred a shower but it's a minor gripe... Just something to look out for.

Nice place. Hope to be back.

The rooms are comfortable and clean, ours (2) was very small. Would have liked a kettle in the room as well as a tv or at least a digital radio, but the guest lounge was a great place to sit in the evening. Loved the honesty bar, a great idea. We wanted drinks later than 11pm one night but the whole place was closed up and in darkness by 1130!
I felt the rooms were extremely expensive for what you got, although the hotel really is lovely I don't think it is worth it. The staff were mostly helpful and very friendly. Would strongly suggest the management re-evaluate the room cost.

This is a lovely place. The lounge and honesty bar is unique and is a really lovely space. Get a grip, you moaning minnies who complained about washing their cups!
And who cares that there is no TV! We had an absolutely lovely night here and will definitely be back. Only improvement that could be made would be our shower, which was needing a refurb

My wife and family and I (two adults, and three kids aged 12, 10 and 8) stayed here in July for three nights on vacation, and really enjoyed it. Although - as some reviewers have pointed out - the decor in the rooms may, depending on your taste, be a bit dated the beds are wonderful; we slept like kings. Three young kids and no TV etc ? Not a worry. The very spacious upstairs lounge has games and our kids had a three day marathon monopoly game and were really, much to our amazement, happy to swithch off from DVDs, Play Stations, TV's etc - so feel happy to come with your family. Finally, we didn't eat much at the Ceilidh Place as we were out visiting most of the time - but breakfast is very nice, and I did try the chowder (haddock??) and it was excellent. Thanks Jean et al !

What a wonderful relaxing beautiful place! Such a chilled vibe and lovely people. The restaurant and bar were delightful. The staff were friendly and professional. We were so delighted we found the Ceilidh Place. The rooms were basic but cosy and very clean. I might of wanted a softer bed though. But it didn't matter because the whole place is furnished so lovely and the food was delicious. 10 out of 10!!

Room Tip: The rooms are small and we only had a bath with hand held shower but there was a shower room just do...

Accommodation was dated but clean. Dinner was good and not expensive. Do not appreciate being asked to wash own tea / coffee cups when paying £150 per night.
Only bath provided with an option of using a rubber hose shower attachment to both hot and cold taps. Toiletries were large bottles of liquid shampoo and large bar of soap which had to be left for next occupant. and potentially not very hygienic.
