This place really is off the beaten path at the edge of a village on the coast about 40 minutes from Ullapool. Great friendly service in a comfortable and we'll run small hotel. Our room was a deluxe in the main building and was very comfortable although the mattress was a bit on the hard side. The decor was well... More

We were very disappointed with our stay at the Summer isles hotel. The hotel is in a brilliant location on the west coast, just off the North 500 route, overLooking the Summer Isles and the chance to watch brilliant sunsets. The accommodation is basic - all fine - but not at the prices they charge. But the biggest disappointment was... More

Dear avonside Thank you for your review and very sorry to hear that your visit was a disappointment.

It was unfortunate that our normal food selection was not available in the bar but I must say that this is unusual and given the... More

We arrived late, the service was perfect, drinks in the lounge Three perfect courses in the dining room. Lovely wine. Splendid service. Great view. Cheese board was great. All local. For such a remote place it was certainly worth the drive.

This hotel is superbly located on a long, single track with passing places road, overlooking the Summer Isles and further western islands beyond.

... when exploring Scotland's west coast. Warm welcome, cosy atmosphere, nice bar and restaurant. Freshly prepared breakfast. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms functional. The village however is small and hardly offers leisure facilities, except for the pub which is at the hotel!

We had wanted to visit the hotel for a long time and finally did last month. We stayed in the sea-facing Oscaig room, and dined in the bar both evenings. I would say that the room was a little dated, and our bed mattress although comfortable left us both with slight back-ache. The bathroom was large, with a shower over... More

Dear Shaun T Thank you for your kind comments.
