Let's just say we KNOW we chose well with the Argyll Hotel in Ullapool...wow. The location, the place itself, and most importantly, the host and hostess and their staff-- all made for an ideal combination to visit this almost mystical port village on the very edge, literally, of the Highlands. I know some people are reluctant to give a place 5 out of 5, but in this case, it was worth it....

Ullapool itself makes a seriously lasting impression: a well-kept, yet unfussy & quaint in a very "real" sort of way, village, it sits overlooking water and a variety of hils and mountains (which, in various weather and shades of light, really add to its unique feel as a perfect and relaxing getaway, as well as 'base camp' for venturing into the Highlands).

The hotel is just a street away, and slightly up from, the water and all the shops, so the views from its front windows are jaw-dropping. When we arrived, it was a completely sunny day, so we unpacked, grabbed a beer, and sat in the sun overlooking it all. The hotel above all projects 'clean and comfortable, without being ostentatious.' The rooms are of a good size, the facilities all well-kept, and the bar and dining area are excellent (with a nice array of local food-- I had the newly taken and scrumptious scallops!-- as well as ales, lagers, ciders, stout, and, of course, the top-shelf whisky!). There's a separate, cozy room for breakfast. Also, there's a nice fireplace at the end of the main restaurant/bar area, and the host and hostess ensure that there's always something going on in and around the hotel: live music, theme or quiz nights, you name it.

But a small hotel's soul comes mainly from its people, and hosts Nigel and Franner are wonderful and fun--always there if you need them, but never in your face. They are very accommodating, friendly, and accessible, and we had some nice chats with them about their place, Ullapool, and the surrounding gorgeous lands. You felt they knew you, the way they engaged with people. Their staff and the room care were excellent; the chef makes some superb breakfasts, too....always nice after a day of lots of easily accessible hill-walking followed by a night of lots of, well, stout-imbibing...

In short, for the amazing locale (Ullapool, near the heart of the Highlands, with a lovely hotel smack in the heart of it) and for the facilities and people, I'd surely recommend the Argyll Hotel-- and I *will* be returning, perhaps for another birthday celebration...
