Lovely hotel with a warm welcome, the food is delicious and the helpings generous. The hotel is comfortable, characterful, well run and a pleasure to visit. So much nicer than bland chain hotels with airy rooms, it is attractive, clean and comfortable, friendly and excellent value for money, I am already looking forward to going back.

This was the worst experience of our 10 days in beautiful Scotland. We went in for a drink one evening and found the service and the atmosphere to be terrible. The woman behind the bar seemed to consider us "outsiders" and was very, very unfriendly. The bar was very noisy and the clientele were obnoxious to us. We left without... More

An old hotel, in need of a bit of refurbishment, but ideally located at Lochinver harbour. It's about a 5-10min walk into the main village centre. Rooms are basic, but functional and clean. Staff are very friendly. Breakfast is fresh cooked to order and is very tasty.

A hotel in need of a makeover. Having a fishing boat ice factory outside the front door doesn't help this once grand but tired hotel. It's really in need of someone to spend some money on the decor, fixtures and fittings. Saying that the room was comfortable and warm, two very good nights sleep in the bed and the shower... More

This hotel is family run and they are very welcoming. The building is a fine example of Scottish Baronial architecture so the rooms inside are of a good size with a wide, paneled staircase. The menu at breakfast and dinner is fairly basic but well cooked. The bar in the evening is the haunt of the locals and if you... More

This hotel probably had an enviable position at one time but is now tucked away in the dock area. Cavernous public rooms with uninspired dark decor give the wrong impression from the outset. The restaurant, far from being cosy, is barnlike and uninviting. Reception staff have to be summoned by a bell but are friendly and welcoming. Our room was... More

I don't know where to start with this place. It's like the hotel that time forgot. 1980's carpets, lights and decor and a horrible foosty smell everywhere that you go. The place is run by an unnerving little fellow who goes around the place switching off the lights in the lounge, even when you're sitting there using the place. The... More

Staying in Lochinver in November means accommodation options are limited - a lot of places are closed. As other reviewers have said, the building interior and decor is dated, but the rooms are comfortable enough, and are large and spacious with big high Victorian ceilings. The staff are helpful and accommodating, my other half is allergic and / or intolerant... More

we were in a group of four, our rooms were very good, the food was very good (breakfast and dinner), there are many walks to occupy you, if its raining you could visit the local pottery and watch it being made, a great base for that part of the highlands.

Prior to booking this hotel I spent some time on the phone to the proprietor explaining our requirements which were based around a wheelchair accessable room which had a wetroom en-suite. I was assured that this would not be a problem and that we would have a room which met our requirements. On arrival we were very disappointed with the... More
