Having read the latest review I have to say that I think it is very harsh and a little personal.Each to their own, and we are all entiltled to our own opinion and mine is as follows. Stayed for 2 nights, had requested a room with a view and Room 3 on the first floor did not dissapoint. Clean and spacious with a flat screen TV on the wall at the foot of the bed, great for viewing. Really powerful shower with loads of hot water. Ate in the hotel and found the food to be reasonably priced, well presented, and very tasty. Can recommend the Cullen Skink, and the Fish and Chips.
Room service is available if you wish to eat in your room a real plus. The bar has a lively atmosphere and the locals will make you more than welcome and are willing to share a story or two over a dram. I had no problem getting served as one reviewer commented on and found the owner to be very accommodating. Yes there are a few characters who frequent the Arch Inn but to me they add to the overall experience of visiting and staying in a Highland Hotel. Let us not forget that the local cliental are the bread and butter for these small Highland Hotels when the tourists depart for the season and the winter sets in. There are plenty of other quieter places in Ullapool to spend the evening if the bar is not to your liking. Personally I enjoy a bit of crack and banter so sadly missing missing in bars these days as you have to watch your P's and Q's a bit too much these day's. It was nice to see and hear people letting their hair down without being chastised all the time.The staff were very attentive and happy in their work. I will admit that it did get a bit noisy come closing time but it didnt last for too long as everyone made their way home. Breakfast was very good, with quality incredients, well cooked and presented. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel if you plan to overnight in Ullapool. Like I said at the start each to their own !.
