To get here you drive through the most lovely landscapes in Europe. We've not been for a couple of years, mainly due to the fact that we're not great at booking in advance and the hotel has become justifiably busy. Great refurbishment of the restaurant and bar, added a fabulous decking and spruced up the rooms. It's all so good,...

We spent one night at the Kylesku Hotel and enjoyed every minute. The owner made us feel incredibly welcome during our anniversary dinner in the restaurant, spending a significant amount of time sharing her experience and story - a really lovely person and a nice addition to the beautiful and clean hotel and delicious dinner overlooking such a stunning Scottish...

This is a gem of a place. From the moment we arrived the hospitality shown to us by all hotel staff was superb. We stayed in Wullies Hoose and the décor is beautiful. Room with en-suite was spotless and the bed must be at least 10feet wide. Very comfortable. This is absolute luxury and as a dog friendly hotel we...

Fantastic hotel, very comfortable and fresh. Our rooms overlooked the loch, what a view to wake up to! Very friendly owners and staff, everyone went that extra step to make sure you had a great stay. The food was excellent and all locally sourced. We are really looking forward to going back to explore this beautiful part of Scotland further.

We have been travelling to Kylesku/The Assynt for 20+ years and are always blown away by the area.

Third time visiting and still one of the best hotels I have ever been to. From the moment you arrive to the heartbreaking journey home you feel like your part of the family. Denise provided a welcome face behind the check in desk upon our arrival and to be personally met by the owners was great. Having driven 15 hours...

Outside it was cold and wet and the scenery is wild and wonderful. Inside was welcoming warmth in every way. Immaculate room, gorgeous food, and staff that quickly become your friends. After just four days I was so relaxed I felt I had stayed much longer.

Everything that needs to be said about Kylesku has already been said, so it's really just a "+1" entry from me. A bit quieter this time of year than in the summer of 2015 when we stayed last time, but equally enjoyable. Food, hospitality, atmosphere are all just as good. This time we had a room in the main house...

Stayed here for two nights. The food was absolutely beautiful. The local seafood was so fresh and there was great breakfast options. It's great to stay somewhere where there are options besides 'full Scottish'. The room was perfect, and the view of the loch was stunning. But the staff/owners deserve a special mention. They were all so friendly and helpful....

Located on the route of the North Coast 500, which is why we selected it and sits next to Loch Glendhu at the old ferry terminus. The hotel is decorated to a very high, modern standard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm welcome in the heart of real Highland wilderness. Kylesku is a delightfully peaceful village on the shores of two large sea-lochs, Loch Glendhu & Loch Glencoul. Set in the heart of real Highland wilderness, it makes a perfect base for exploring Sutherland and North West Scotland.The Kylesku Hotel itself is an old coaching inn dating from 1680, and is situated by the former ferry slipway on the shores of the loch. The hotel, bar and restaurant are open to residents & non-residents alike. It is an independently run small hotel with current owners Tanja Lister & Sonia Virechauveix eager to provide a warm welcome.The views from the hotel overlooking the loch and the local mountains are awesome with the bar, restaurant & lounge providing a perfect vantage point for overseeing the local wildlife - an abundance of seals, red deer and birds, or even our more elusive neighbour, the local otter.We are passionate about food, and with local fishing boats landing daily in Kylesku, seafood is a speciality. Fresh langoustines, lobsters, spineys, crabs, mussels and haddock are available, alongside quality meat & game. We also offer a choice of vegetarian options, all of which can be washed down with wide selection of wines, beers & malt whiskies. We are proud to be included in the 2012 Michelin Guide to Eating in Pubs. Our aim is simple: to tempt you with the freshest, local, quality food, in welcoming, friendly and comfortable surroundings. We hope our wealth of local knowledge will help you to get the most out of your stay here. There is something for everyone, be it walking, climbing, fishing, wildlife watching or simply combing the many deserted white sandy beaches of the North West Coast. We are happy to help you to plan your itineraries whether by car, on foot or pedal power.Our hotel is also featured in the 2012 Good Hotel Guide and in Claire MacDonald’s famous recipe book Scottish Highland Hospitality, where she states that “Kylesku Hotel combines everything I consider to be essential for a visitor to the Highlands - comfort, really good food in an old hotel with all the present-day amenities, and truly spectacular scenery wherever you look.” ... more   less
