Spent 2 nights in a twin room. Seemed old and run down, need to be spruced up. Although wifi connection was restricted to the lobby, but it was so slow that it gets cut off occasionally. That said, we were thankful for the heater outside our room especially coming back from a long wet hike. Also, breakfast was very good.... More

Mouldy walls, wifi not availiable in rooms but there is barely a wifi signal in the lobby either, so dont waste your time! Broken windows and the place just felt quite run down. VERY overpriced for what you find!

On our trip to Edinburgh from Harris and Lewis, we stopped at Kings Arms for one night. The hotel is run down and dilapidated. Room was small and had trouble with the window opening. The bathroom wasn't very clean. Beds where hard as rocks and there was no mattress protector. WiFi was only in the lobby and weak at best.... More

We stayed here as a family for two nights. Everything was fine. Hotel is a bit dated and few things could do with being replaced. Wifi only works in lobby which is a little frustrating. Staff helpful. Rooms average.

We stayed here while on a tour of Scotland. Tour company picked hotels. Rooms were clean. Meals were very good. Over all it is out dated - perhaps quaint, depending on your definition. Can't reply regarding value - cost of stay not revealed to us !

Just here for one night but found everything to be better than expected. Our room and bathroom were very clean and beds comfortable. Our evening meal in the dining room was excellent --very good quality and the service from Peter, our waiter, was exceptional. My elderly Mother is blind and he was very kind and anticipated her needs. Breakfast was... More

Grateful to get a room in town as the originally booked bed and breakfast ended up being less than advertised. Regarding the King's Arms, an average hotel, however probably the best in town. A little tired but otherwise clean and functional rooms. Working television. One gripe would be free Wifi is restricted to the lobby area. As a positive they... More

We planned a grand tour but for a variety of reasons we decided to let a coach tour take the strain. We chose Titterington Holidays of Penrith because we had been with them before and the tour took us where we wanted to go. Our driver Richard was great from the start to the finish. The Kings Arms Hotel was... More

This hotel has a great location shame about the decor. We travelled with friends and stayed here for two nights. Our room had been recently been painted and sadly there was more paint on the floor than the walls. The bathroom had also received a makeover with a strange mix of new and existing tiles which did not match. Breakfast... More

The management saved the day at the Kings Arms. They were very helpful - but the rooms need updating. A serviceable hotel but with small dated rooms and priced like a Glasgow or Edinburgh hotel with refurbished rooms. A great location, easily accessible - we arrived by short taxi from Kyle Lochalsh. We enjoyed the view from the bridge at... More
