Could not fault this amazing place. From the first step inside the doors we were treated like royalty- a wonderful welcome and tour around the hotel and room. The hotel is situated in an amazing location, most of the rooms overlooking the loch. The rooms, recently refurbished, are well thought out with much attention to detail. The resteraunt is splendid... More

Having read so many great reviews we were keen to visit kylesku while taking my parents on a tour round the far north west and it would be fair to say that all our expectations were met and exceeded. A truly amazing location, great service and absolutely delicious food. It was a real highlight to be eating a huge portion... More

We were slightly disappointed with our rooms - one did not have an en suite and the other had four beds squeezed in when we only needed three. Having said that they were very comfortable. Breakfast was probably the best we had anywhere in Scotland. Dinner was excellent too. The dining room overlooks the Loch and is cleverly designed so... More

Dear Emma H, We are glad that despite being disappointed with the rooms you enjoyed your stay with us. The two attic rooms unfortunately do not have en suites- something that should have been mentioned upon booking and would have shown on your booking confirmation. We are glad you made use of the lounge, it is a great space to... More

A small but exceptionally welcoming hotel, recently renovated to a high contemporary standard. The food in the restaurant is excellent, particularly the local seafood, and the hotel runs boat trips on the fjord-like loch. Situated between the wild remote country of farthest NW Sutherland and the stunning beauty of Assynt, the location is superlative.The really outstanding thing is the individual... More

What a great place! Perfect views, comfortable room, great food, great host, what is not to like? We were very sad we only had one night here, watching an otter whilst having breakfast made it difficult to leave. We will be back.

What a wonderful little place. Great rooms, superb food and a stunning location. The service is exemplary and the welcome second to none. Well worth the trip up here, the scenery is fantastic. So refreshing to be allowed to take your dog every where with you. Spotlessly clean. Great find, don't tell everyone;)

This was our third stay at Kylesku and it was as good as the other visits.

Dear GreentLinnet, We are so glad you enjoyed yourself again, despite the langoustines being temporarily unavailable. At this time of year, many of the langoustine are carrying eggs, and to promote sustainability we avoid using these as best as possible, so that people in years to come will enjoy them as much as your partner! We look forward to your... More

Over the years, my wife and I have often thought about travelling to the far north via the west coast route but this is the first time we've got round to it. It's about a 5hrs 30mins drive from Glasgow and about 2 hours from Inverness. The North Coast 500 route runs past this hotel, making it a great place... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our NC500 road trip and it was by far the best stay we had for the 6 nights we were travelling.

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
