We stayed here in early June, and had a second floor room with a shared veranda with views over the road to the water. A little out of the center, but close enough for an easy walk to the restaurants and pubs and shops of Ullapool. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Did not use the restaurant (Italian) but found... More

We had an overnight stay on way to the Island of Lewis. Booked the hotel as it has a large overspill car park at the back where I could store my small boat that I was towing. Very friendly welcome from the receptionist. Made us feel appreciated. We had room 18, what a fantastic view and even had a balcony.... More

We were really excited about our stay here after reading such good reviews and seeing the stunning pictures on the website however, in reality it was a real let down. The girl at check in was really friendly and efficient. First impressions were the hotel was in a fantastic location with great views and handy location however it was so... More

While we were staying in Uallpool for one night at a B&B, we had our evening meal at the Royal, the décor in the bar had the highland feel to it, staff were very friendly, meal was very good with big portions all at reasonable prices.

We stayed at the Royal Hotel in Ullapool for 7 nights at the end of June. After an 8 hour journey we were delighted to find the suite I had booked had a four poster bed and a balcony with gorgeous loch views and a bench right outside the room. The sun was shining and it was very warm on... More

Right on the loch. The view was lovely from the front. Our room was smallish but comfortable enough. As always, there weren’t enough plugs. The internet was slow but at least it was free. The TV reception was excellent. It was right in Ullapool so there was a small town to walk around in and go into shops.

We were delighted when we found Room 12 to be at the front with a balcony and seating outside (with ashtrays provided!). The room was huge compared to some others on our round coast trip of Scotland and had everything you could possibly need provided. We loved it so much we asked to extend our two night stay into 4...

The hotel is well located and the accommodation was excellent. It's a busy large hotel but that having been said it was really enjoyable to stay there. The food and service were excellent. i would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this area.

This was the 5th hotel on our trip around Scotland and glad we found it. As it is on the main road very easy to find with a petrol station right in front of it which is handy for filling up the car. We walked into the reception area to be met by the most unfriendly receptionist we have encountered... More

I actually live in Ullapool, so when some friends came up to visit, it was a good excuse to eat out! The Royal hotel Bar area is very spacious with cracking views across Loch Broom. There is seating here for plenty of people and a well-stocked Bar, especially if you like Whisky. You can order good Bar food- Fish, Pizza,... More
