The budget room was a large comfortable room with en suite bathroom. According to the owner the reason he calls the room a budget room is because it faces the road. This was not an issue as after 7pm there was hardly any traffic. We both slept very well.

It would appear that the Achilty is a shadow of its former self. It doesn’t operate as a hotel anymore which was a disappointment to us arriving at 7pm and hoping for a relaxing night eating in. Achility is now a bed and breakfast venue only so the “hotel” title is something of a misnomer. We received a warm welcome... More

With reference to review. Firstly the television is 19 inches. If the guest required a larger television he could have asked at the time. I tend not to overcook breakfasts. The observation could have been made at the time. All our guests are asked at the time if their meal is all right , I cannot remedy the problem after... More

We had a lovely clean and light room, lots of space and very comfortable bed. We think this B&B is a little gem! it has one of the best breakfasts in the Highlands and the hosts are really friendly too.

While driving up to this B&B, the weathered sign had fallen down and been set on the ground, making me a bit worried about what I was in for. However, the stay turned out to be lovely and just what I would expect from a B&B. The decor is more than a bit dated, and the layout of the building... More

We stayed for five nights. It is only a B&B. the owner's partner died and the couple, the Slaters, could not cope with a restuarant as well. However Mr Slater, with40 years in the hotel business, produces an excellent breakfast and the rooms are well equipped - What a change to find a shower of good pressure, good heat and... More

This accommodation is not a hotel, and from the information on 'google' etc this is not clear. It is definitely a B&B, although it used to be a hotel. I arrived expecting to be able to have a drink from the bar etc, and perhaps a snack, and so was disappointed. As a B&B it was fine. I had a... More

when you just used to turn up or see a hotel and stop and get booked in, paid £100 for 2 rooms, was very quiet and up for sale, was a real old fashioned place, dated and money needed to just tidy the edges, but this was fine for me, i like this type of small hotel, i dont mind... More
