My wife and I stayed at the Ferry Boat Inn for one night. From the moment we entered, we regretted our decision. The Inn is tired, worn and dirty. The bed was lumpy; the bathroom had a filthy, smelly carpeted floor; the TV did not work; the WiFi was intermittent; and sounds from the downstairs pub prevented us from sleeping... More

The hotel was in a fantastic location, right on the sea front and near everything in town. Parking is an issue, but a bit of hunting and dropping someone off outside with the bags makes it easier. The room was very clean and had everything we needed, but was just a little dated. Also the noise from the beer garden... More

Given the cost of staying here you would think they could invest in some upgrades. Bedroom furniture and bathroom fittings were from the 70's. Bed was small for a double, but comfortable enough. Bathroom was tiny. All bedroom doors would slam close quite loudly so expect to be woken by those coming back later or leaving early. Location is fantastic... More

Very clean room, excellent location - very friendly staff. Parking can be trouble. Room sound insulation is not good (expected, nothing abnormal). Internet does not really work. It is a pub with music and alcohol in peoples behaviour. It is a very comfortable place to rest the head while traveling or hiking the highlands.

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.
