The Millcroft
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Gairloch
Reviewed August 29, 2012

The Millcroft Hotel is perfectly situated in the middle of Gairloch. We were greeted with a smile from a very helpful member of staff. Our twin bedded room (Room 4) had amazing views. (see photos) But the room could do with a facelift as could the whole hotel, its all looking a little tired, with cracks on the walls and ceilings. They seem to like the colour red as our room and the restaurant were exactly the same colour (see photos).There was a sign outside saying it was now under new management, so l am sure they will start decorating soon. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed our stay at The Millcroft and slept very well, though the beds were a little bouncy for my liking. The full Scottish breakfast was perfect with a good selection, which we had to choose the day before. Overall l would recommend this hotel.

We booked two of the self-catering apartments for our 3 day stay and were greeted by Lynda, the new proprietor who is a lovely lady, friendly, helpful and quite witty! The food was excellent, served by helpful and cheery staff.who were eager for feedback and took comments to the chef, who used parma ham with the scallops after I commented that the bacon overpowered the dish. Lynda told us that she was aware that a lot of upgrading and changes need to be made. As she is only 5 weeks into the job we look forward to going back soon as it was definitely worth our long journey from the east coast of Scotland .

Camping at Sands campsite and went to the millcroft for lunch. Food was lovely, portions generous and price reasonable. Served by the owner who was keen to welcome us in, children, dogs and all. They have apparently not long taken over the hotel and have lots of plans for it. Would definitely recommend a stop if passing through or staying in Gairloch.

This was our first time staying at the millcroft and we will definitely be back! The new owners were VERY welcoming and friendly! The food was excellent and as the food is served in the restaurant and not the bar you get to enjoy the beautiful views over dinner. All the staff were very helpful and polite. The room was lovely, it had a fantastic view and the bed was very comfy! The bar was also lovely,it had a very welcoming atmospher. We can't wait to go back to the millcroft and stay again,it was brilliant!

We've had dinner at the Millcroft almost every day during our 2 week holiday in Gairloch, and it has been wonderful. We didn't really feel like cooking every day on holiday, so we went to have dinner at the Millcroft and it quickly become our favorite place to eat! The new owners were really friendly and always up for a little chat. The food was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed many different dishes and the view from the hotel was amazing. We will definitely be back next year, if not sooner!

I frequented the Millcroft many times and found it excellent, friendly, great food & value for money....HOWEVER

New owner unfriendly, not welcoming, sat for an hour as too early to order food, to then be told go outside and enter Other door, as not serving food i bar, unless accompanied by a dog! perhaps, a more friendly approach, take order, and advice of new seating arrangements..... Wasn't busy & with that attitude nor will it be! Friendliness costs nothing!

... Lone woman diner.
