“Good location & comfortable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Much extended old highland inn with great views out over the sea and Inverewe gardens. Tasty food served in the bar area, which is a bit confusing in layout. Room are small & could do with some updating but but with great views.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stayed here recently for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The homemade food was tasty and plentiful, with a daily specials board as well as the regular menu. The bar area, including a pool table and darts board, was welcoming and friendly.
We stayed in room 6 which has beautiful views over Loch Ewe. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with a big roll top bath, good to relax in after a day out in the scottish countryside.
Nearby are the magnificent Inverewe Gardens, well worth a visit. There are also several lovely walks in the area, as well as a few local indoor attractions for bad weather days, such as the Gairloch Heritage museum and the nearby indoor swimming pool.
The new owners are continuing to make great improvements to this hotel, and we look forward to returning here before too long.

My wife and I only stayed at the Poolewe hotel for one night but it suited us perfectly. No thrills but very nice towels and a lovely location. We were initially offered a nice room but with a bath without a shower which didn't suit us so we moved to a smaller room which wasn't as nice but did give us a shower. We ate in the bar and had a great evening with several local lads in for their Friday night drink - all great fun. We were not expecting anything special for breakfast but were pleasantly surprised with the high quality breakfast offered. We have no hesitation in recommending the Poolewe Hotel for a short stay.

Room Tip: Room 6 is lovely but has a bath without a shower.

My wife and I spent two nights at this hotel last weekend. The double room was spotless with a superb bathroom, which to me meant that the new owners were investing in the property. Garry, the Manager was welcoming and his new chef Roman and his partner Joanne made everyone welcome. It is the only bar in Poolewe and on the Friday it was not particularly busy, but Saturday made up for it with it being the end of the month and the locals were there in abundance to add to the character of the place. Whilst the restaurant is a bit bright, the food was excellent, especially if you like Fish or Game. On the Friday I had the game pie, which was superb, and my wife had the salmon fishcakes, which were enormous. On the Saturday I had their renowned Cullen Skink as a starter, followed by the best piece of Haddock I've ever had, and Roman's Fruit crumble was magnificent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. in what can only be described as one of the most beautiful and scenic areas of the UK. Breath-taking panoramas are all around and nearby are the world famous Inverewe Gardens, which are a must to visit. Would definitely stay there again and have no hesitation in recommending it.

Room Tip: Room 6, a double was beautiful.

I wrote a very negative review of this Hotel last year..glad to say it seems to have improved now tht it is out of administration.... only visited for food and drink but the atmosphere is so much better.... it just needs some finer touches.... lack of tartar sauce served with fish until asked for.... but excellent beer.... lets hope it continues to improve and reflect what is one of the jewels of the West Highlands...

We ate here as a family, having an early, (6.30p.m) meal. We were disappointed with the dining room which had plastic table cloths and flowers making it feel more like a cafe than a restaurant attached to an otherwise nice hotel.
The food was average and we were disappointed at the lack of local fish on the menu. Only one white wine and one red wine on offer which is surprising for a hotel!
The homemade fish cakes were lovely but presentation was poor. Its great to see the hotel open and operational again but we felt that they was certainly room for improvement.
