My husband and I arrived late after driving from Edinburgh through snow and sleet. The welcome we received from Colleen was more than we could have asked for. The room was warm and cosy with everything we could possibly have asked for. Breakfast in the fridge, more than we could eat. Fresh home baked bread, marmalade and banana cake. We couldn't have a better experience away from home. Only hope we can come back.

Visited this hotel a while ago and can't believe I forgot to leave a review. This place is absolutely fantastic. The couple who run it are amazingly friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. I loved being able to have breakfast waiting in the fridge and not having to get up at a set time. This was especially helpful after a long boozy night at The ceilidh place... Have recommended this place to everyone. They could easily charge double as well and you wouldn't be disappointed but it's a nice bonus that's it's so reasonable as well.

We spent 2 nights at West House on 16 & 17 September 2012 and were treated as old family friends, not only by Coleen and Richard but the two lovely labs also living there.
The standard of decor in our room was of the highest standard and the en suite and luxurious bed plus the view of Loch Broom were really good.
Breakfast was on a 'build it yourself' basis with a large fridge in the room, containing a very good selection of items to satisfy even the most picky of eaters. We had not come across this 'breakfast in the room' concept before but it was absolutely excellent. Must not, of course, forget the superb daily cake - how Coleen finds time to do this goodness only knows!
If we ever find our path takes us to Ullapool in the future we will definitely make a bee line for the West House.

After staying in the Aberdeenshire area we headed up to Ullapool and stayed at the West House. Excellent view of the water and the hill beyond from our room. Colleen and Richard are great hosts. I wish we had more time to enjoy their company. Breakfast in the room is perfect for those slow starters like us. A fresh home baked surprise greeted us everyday. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom and shower was clean as a whistle with plenty of hot water ( Rich I still can't believe electricity and water mix so well ) The West House is a in a perfect location for travelling the area. A very short walk to the Harbor. Quick ride to other villages with some of the most scenic, and skinny, roads I have ever been on. I hope we can return again soon.

First class B&B 1 minute from ferry terminal. Lovely welcome (with a glass of wine) from mine hosts Coleen & Richard. Gorgeous lab pup Garth was ion the welcoming committee. Innovative idea of in-room breakfast facility - this works for us!! Beautiful room with nice shower cubicle. Pity the space meant that the sink was outside the shower/toilet area but not a real problem. Nice view over Loch Broom, watching the ferry arrive and depart.

We never realised that Ullapool was so nice, and West House B&B went a long way to making this a nice stop. We were warmly welcomed by Richard and then shown our room by Coleen who was very kind and helpful, even offering us a glass of wine (a definite plus in my books). The room was great, very roomy, comfortable and fantastic views. The continental breakfast was a welcome change from cooked breakfasts which we'd had our fill of by the time we reached Ullapool! We loved the local bread and oatcakes. Good advice provided also on where to eat and places to see. We will definitely come back to Ullapool again.

I had the privilege of staying at West House on 5th September 2012. The owners have thought of everything and worked tirelessly to please their guests. West House is a well run, clean and homely place. The room I had was as good as any Hotel with a fridge which contained almost everything to make your own healthy breakfast. Fresh fruit salad, orange juice, milk, porridge, bread (a toaster and kettle with filter coffee, tea etc). I even had a table and two chairs with a view from the window to die for. Gorgeous en suite, with shower. The bed was very comfortable with very good quality linen and modern furnishings. I cannot recommend West House highly enough. My thanks to proprietors Colleen and Richard. Thanks guys. It was just what I needed!
