We stayed two nights in July, Sunday and Monday. The room is significantly overpriced, and with the addition of £20 per night breakfast is even worse, far from value. Whilst the receptionist was very friendly and efficient, she was clearly overworked and could have done with help, especially when the bar and restaurant got busy (see separate review). The room...

This Inn is located in front of a lovely harbour. It has a bar and a seafood rstaurant - both serve a selection of decent food and drinks. I paid £110 for one night which I thought was a bit steep for the budget room I was in (with a view of a wall and nothing else) as it didn't... More

The Ferry Boat inn I stayed at the Ferry Boat Inn in Ullapool on the 11th of July, the hotel is quite basic and judging by my room not exactly modern, the owner was friendly and helpful and the room was clean, the downside was the bar, people were having bar meals but other customers had a dog with them...

We stopped here for breakfast and totally recommend it!! I had a wonderful vegetarian cooked breakfast. Absolutely delicious. The service was wonderful and it was great value for money. Overlooking the Ullapool harbour, it's well worth a visit.

These were the first words I heard when I woke up at the Ferry Boat Inn. If you like worn carpet and old Lino on the floor of the tiny bathroom, this is your place. It needs a thorough spring clean. If you have a view, you may forgive the other shortcomings. If you can't get a room with a... More

Stayed here for a night, and with paid breakfast, it was quite expensive for what it was. The room has a splendid view towards the waterfront, but the decoration was truly awful - including a carpeted bathroom. Never saw a smile from the staff, and the breakfast was truly poor considering its price. Avoid this one.

Found it very expensive for what you get £90 without breakfast. Room was clean but small and looked out onto a brick wall, we couldn't keep the window open as there were no ropes on the sash so the room was very stuffy and the toilet leaked. The bar music was loud but did finish around midnight and then you... More

Fancied a pint after mooching around Ullapool, had the dog so outdoor was required. 3 ales on offer which is good going for what was a small bar. Flying Scotsman, Deuchars IPA and Doombar (that's come a long way). My Deuchars was in good nick. What I liked was that the owner/manager came outside with a bowl of water for... More

Loved it! Great fun evening with open mic night. Soooo hot that day in June that we took boat trip out to Summer Isles - well worth it and you might meet Digger the dog who is in charge of the boat along with his human.
