I was looking around the area, decided to have lunch. I had lunch in the bistro. Very clean and warm with good views. Food was very good with excellent service. The bar was attended on this day by one of the chef's (helping out on his otherwise day off).

Stopped here for an overnight stay during our North Coast 500 trip. Our room was clean and comfy and mainly fine. The main issue was the lack of mirror in the room for doing hair and make up.

We stayed here as a base for a midweek break in Wester Ross. The hotel is well located for sightseeing, and particularly for the nearby Inverewe Gardens. Our rooms were comfortable, breakfasts and dinners were fine, and the service was good. However, the dining room closes once students go back to college, so the bar/'bistro' is the only dining option...
