The reviews speak for themselves, and we can only add our praise for a place that gets everything right. Our welcome was friendly and relaxed, and our room in Willie's Hoose first rate. The decor reminded us of Cape Cod, and the whole ambiance of US style hospitality (please accept this as high praise!) It was pleasantly warm enough to... More

The setting is second to none! A recent refurbishment has vastly improved this stunning eatery. A meal for five on Monday evening (25th July) was superb. I had the Chicken Terrine followed by the obligatory Langoustine. The presentation is impressive as is the service with the owner walking the tables is a nice touch. Make a point of visiting here,...

This was our first time staying at the Kylsesku hotel and it will not be our last, in fact we booked up again for later in the year before we even checked out. The hotel is fantastic, the food is to die for and the staff, especially the owners, Sonia and Tanja who could not have been more attentive and... More

Unfortunately, we couldn't get a room at this stylish little hotel in an absolutely stunning highland location. We were fortunate enough to have dinner and breakfast after securing a bed at a nearby B & B. The food, drawing heavily on locally sourced ingredients, is superb as was the service - relaxed but attentive and considerate. The seafood platter was... More

I have been promising myself that one day I would stay in Kylesku having passed by on my Motorcycle countless times over the years. I was travelling on my own and could only stay for one night but rest assured I will be back. The Hotel is in a stunning location with a wonderful view of what the North West... More

The hotel has been recently refurbished and is very nice. Lovely sitting area, great restaurant. We had a room with no view that was upstairs under the eaves. It was small but well appointed with a reasonably sized closet. The private bath was downstairs. A tad inconvenient but I was very lucky to get this last room in April for... More

Dear nancym712712, Thank you for your lovely review. We are very aware of the limitations of our 2 very small attic rooms and I hope that we do describe them properly upon booking: you can barely swing a cat in there! I exaggerate, a little, but whilst they do both have a double bed, bathrobes to guard your decency, and... More

We're usually leaning towards staying in B&Bs, but the Kylesku Hotel website and great reviews made us book here for two nights. And how right all those positive reviews are. This is a wonderful place to stay, with a great view of the Loch from our well-appointed room. Staff is very friendly and helpful, with everyone including the owners taking... More

It's hard to think of a better place to enjoy a holiday in Scotland. In particular Sutherland offers an amazing experience if you want to tune into the natural beauty of this fine country. So the natural place to stay and explore, experience the best on offer, is at Kylesku Hotel. The reviewers speak for themselves. A few that just... More

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
