We only stayed one night here but liked this small hotel a lot. The room was comfy and clean with a large bathroom (apart from the fact that there wasn't a proper stand-up shower). No TV in the room (quite refreshing) but there's one in the very cosy lounge. The food in the adjacent restaurant (Coastal Kitchen) was excellent (the... More

Delightful Hotel in lovely setting right by the sea, great food and best bed I have slept on in a long time, great Wifi and very helpful staff. The annex Bar Restaurant has a lovely roof terrace where we had a nice drink and watched the sun setting, what more could you ask for.

There was an air of shabbiness about the reception area and a very 'off' smell. We were shown our room right at the far end of the building with a view over the loch as requested. We couldn't get the wifi to work which is a vital requirement for us due to personal reasons and we were told it doesn't... More

Despite the "breezy" weather this place was an oasis. We arrive and were offered tea in the lounge which morphed in to a cream tea! Room was quaint and comfortable overlooking the Loch - what a view. If you are going to moan about a bit of frayed carpet then the view, the food, the welcome and staff make this... More

I stayed for 2 nights dinner B & B, very comfortable room, despite the garden table (tin top) as coffee/tea table! (No cloth cover). Food was superb both in the restaurant & the Bar, service top class by cheerful Aussie girls. The only slight complaint is the state of the carpets on the stairs etc. Not changed since my last...

We stayed here very last minute as we were touring in a motor home which was our first and last experience! The hotel is gorgeous - lots of character, clean, gorgeous local food (any of the seafood please!) and the owner is so nice - pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. We are going back to visit in May... More

After a stunning drive over Bealach na Ba in glorious sunshine, there were more amazing views in Shieldaig from hotel bedroom overlooking the island. Shabby chic hotel and very comfortable indeed. we had an excellent dinner with good value wine list in main restaurant. Breakfast was really good and the staff were helpful and friendly. Idyllic spot to land in.

We visited with eight others for the weekend. Arrived at about 7 after a long journey and had a warm welcome from Fiona who couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming and who looked after us all eevening. We ate in the coastal kitchen next door (which is the same owner) and the food was delicious. The rooms were good... More
