We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at the Riverside Guesthouse and would have loved to stay longer. Our bedroom was very spacious, light and airy. In addition there was a large lounge for guest use - complete with books to read. Breakfast was enjoyable and served by a delightful young waitress.

Great stop for a night after the ferry from Stornoway. 2 rooms booked in advance, we got a friendly welcome from Colin, rooms were comfortable, nice lounge area and good breakie in the morning. We also got great advice on a place for dinner and a fab climb the next morning.

Riverside Guest house is a lovely little place where you can get a great nights sleep and brilliant breakfasts! It's only 2 minutes walk from a big Tesco Express and lots of shops and restraunts. I have been to the guesthouse 5 or 6 times now and every time I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Thank you

Only about a 2-minute walk from the main pier, only steps to a bench overlooking the loch for a sunset view over the islands, great breakfast, and Charlie couldn't have been more helpful, offering great tips for hikes and scenic drives along our route! Would stay again.

Stayed here on day 2 of our NC500 trip. A comfortable clean and pleasant place to stay. Pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Our rooms were spacious and beds comfortable. Plenty of parking outside the premises. A short walk to the pubs and eateries of Ullapool.

Not a beautiful place but inside was very nice and I was once again surprised by the palm trees outside. The gentleman at the desk was WONDERFUL about places to eat as we got in rather late so he told us about a beautiful walk thru the woods over a bridge to Moorefield Inn Restaurant. He was completely right and... More

Stayed there the first time. Chosen via internet and we very very positive surprised. Very clean room, modern bath room and generous lounge. Had trouble with my motorbike. Our host immediate gave assistance to get in contact with a garage and gave me a ride personally.. Thanks for that. You rescued our holidays.

We stayed here as a pit stop to break up the driving during our North Coast 500 trip. The room was large and bright with tea making facilities and a TV, with a shower room. It was spotless-and I'm fussy! The room smelt so clean when we opened the door! The bed was comfortable, if firm. Breakfast was very good.... More

I would highly recommend a stay at the riverside guest house....from the first welcome through to check out the quality of service was excellent. Hotel is in a great location with ample private parking & only a very short walk into the heart of Ullapool. Our room was decorated and furnished in a modern contemporary style and a good size...

Excellent place to stay, the breakfast was all local quality meat. Service excellent. The hotel is in an excellent location and just a short walk to get some fish and chips. We arrived late evening and was given a lovely warm welcome.
