There are many good things about staying at the Arch. Apart from the nice, sturdy modern design, all mod cons within the rooms (including varieties of nice teas and coffees, caramel logs and sweeties) and perfect situation within the town, if you are a resident you can reserve a table to dine in the restaurant! This is significant, because the... More

The room was very comfortable, very simply furnished (think Ikea), but had lots of outlets, and was well-appointed. Breakfast is served in the upstairs dining room was very good. Some very nice fish dishes. The Wifi did not work. Something about just switching over and it not working. They have convenient parking across the street. The view was lovely.

Would recommend. We stayed one night enroute to Stornaway. No complaints. Had a very decent evening meal, and more than adequate breakfast. Room clean and comfortable. Would stay again. Wifi worked really well.

Absolutely lovely inn on seafront. Room very nice and comfortable and delicious breakfast - have the smoked salmon and scrabbled eggs - delicious!!!!! The guy at reception was really helpful and gave us lots of advice and tips. There was a bit of room noise from the bar but we were there on the weekend and it was fine :)

Despite its great location, the hotels smoking area is immediate adjacent to the restaurant and in the breezeway you need to walk through to get to the rooms. Thus whenever we left our room we got a waft of thick smoke. They need to move the smoking area to the tables by the water to avoid this. The walls and... More

We visited Ullapool on a very rainy night, fortunately we had a reservation at the Arch Inn across the street from the ferry landing from Stornoway. As we entered the hotel, we found that the reservations desk was in the pub! The bar maid quickly took us to our room which was small but very clean and in an adjacent... More

Have been a couple of times, both good. Very frustrated with the place in last few years as we visit Ullapool as a group, and not been as they don't allow reservations which is no good for us. Other places do, so been to ceilidh place and ferry boat instead.

We stayed one night at the Arch Inn in the building adjoining the Pub and Restaurant. The rooms had recently been refurbished to a high standard, they were veryclean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast service. As we had had a late lunch we had to forgo an evening meal in the dining room, having looked at the special Restaurant menu I... More

Spent a couple of nights here and very pleased with the whole experience. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. The bar and restaurant are quite plain and do not reflect the excellent food. Only planned to eat here one night but food was so good that we ate here the second night. Scallops were excellent as was the caramelised pork... More
