We came up to Ullapool after realising that the weather was going to be good for climbing some Munro's, it was a fairly last minute trip. We found the Royal Hotel after a quick google search. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We had chosen a non Loch view room which was clean and spacious. There was an odd... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay. Hotel has a great view of the harbour. The hotel is clean and staff were very polite and helpful. It has a lovely breakfast room. The bedroom was a bit dated but adequate. Good newly refurbished bathroom in room.

Ullapool was a lovely little town on Loch Broom. Good take off point for day trip in north east Scotland. The Royal Hotel is placed right up against the Loch and we had lovely views from our room. It was clean and well maintained. Good sized rooms with modern bathing facilities. No elevators. Management staff were less than gracious and... More

Room and bed really comfortable. Choice of room overlooking the harbour (slightly more expensive) if you want it - but not necessary. En suite had been recently refurbished to a good standard. Beautiful selection for breakfast. Short walk to harbour and village.

I recently stayed here as part of a classic car weekend. I have never come across more dismal staff in any hotel I have stayed in. The general manager ( Neil ) ignored us when we asked to be served at the bar and was later seen drinking from a bottle of beer while standing behind the bar (hardly a... More

The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a single room which was sufficient for my one night stay but if i was staying any longer I would have looked at getting a bigger room. The bathroom was the same size as my bedroom and had recently been updated. Now to the food. In my honest opinion do... More

Helpful receptionist with information about eating with a late arrival time. Good size parking bays, comfortable room, great shower. Friendly staff. Would have given 5 stars if there had been a swimming pool.

We had a corner room with a balcony looking out to the harbor. The room was spacious with a sofa, wardrobe, desk and chair. The bathroom had a shower only but was a decent size. The staff were all wonderful from check in to breakfast and check out.

Built in the 19th Century this hotel was the Royal Mail stop for the Crown. Burned down in the late 60s it was rebuilt and then upgraded in the 21st Century. Very nice rooms pool sauna and business services. The property has a very good restaurant and pub on property. The staff is friendly and efficient. Enjoy.
