“Go for the views, stay for the food!”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Tanglewood is a fabulous house owned and managed by delightful people. The views were wonderful, the house decorated with treasures from a lifetime of travel, and the food divine! The breakfast porridge and poached eggs were done to perfection. Every course of both evening meals was amazing. Anne and Julian are warm, charismatic hosts and great chefs. They are also world travellers and interesting conversationalists. They gave us great advice about where to go and what to see and made our stay perfect! Neither the accomodations nor the evening meals are inexpensive, but both are well worth the price. The Tanglewood experience was worth the trip from Washington D.C.

We enjoyed a very fine stay here. The breakfast was excellent (amazing porridge!).
The bed was very comfortable and the view overlooking the Loch and in the distance, Ullapool Harbour was breathtaking. We were made to feel at home upon arrival. The only negatiove was we were delayed by the ferry and therefore missed our evening meal, which was unfortunate. I highly recommend Tanglewood.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the Loch. That said, all the rooms may overlook the Loch.

Sitting on our balcony we spent our first morning at Tanglewood watching seals playing in the loch a stones throw away. To be honest, if the rest of our stay had been awful, I would still have said it was worth the money. Happily, that couldn't have been further from the truth. We found Anne and Julian to be warm, friendly and helpful hosts. The house and its location are fantastic: a short walk from the amenities of Ullapool but tucked away in a secluded spot with views that are simply stunning. We decided to have dinner on both nights of our stay and overall were very happy with the decision. It's certainly not a cheap option but the quality of the food was good and when you consider the convenience, the lovely ambience and beautiful view we think it was worth it.

Room Tip: Book the room with the balcony

Tanglewood is a real find. The location is breathtaking. The welcome is genuine. The evening meal was of the highest quality - in provenance and preparation. The breakfast was generous. The porridge - sublime. I'll be back...

We stayed at Tanglewood after a wet and windy drive up to Scotland from West Wales, and were made very welcome. Found by luck, and how lucky! Beautiful location next to the loch, friendly welcome from Ann and son, Julian, and sumptious, comfortable, romantic bedroom. Yummy breakfast on both days, with Ann/Julian cooking dinner for us on one night - delicious. (Home made bread, home made everything - perfect!)

We will be back!

Architecturally striking outside, comfortable and traditional inside, with lots of books and pictures. Anne and her son Julian are charming hosts with a lovely home, and it is a privilege to share it. Our balcony room was excellent and had a fabulous view over the loch and towards Ullapool.

The food was of the highest possible standard. It's not for those who want chips and cheesecake, as what you will get is the highest quality ingredients, imaginatively presented and cooked to perfection.

Our family stayed at Tanglewood House for three nights over a long weekend. The two rooms were perfect for our needs with views of the loch and Ullapool. The cooked breakfasts were amongst the best ever experienced. The dinners were creative and beautifully presented. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We were made to feel quite at home and a part of the Holloway family.
Anne and Julian are to be congratulated for the warmth of their welcome, their attention to details and their other many efforts to make our stay so enjoyable.
