The Albannach is relatively expensive but worth every penny and more. The atmosphere is relaxed, room furnishings are of the best quality and the staff are simply lovely. Lesley is kind, eccentric (she and the staff have kitchen singalongs!) and a real character who clearly loves her guests. We were made to feel completely welcome, and it's a feeling that extends to the other guests: everyone connects like long lost pals. Breakfasts are exceptional, afternoon tea delicious and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was small but comfortable, with a glorious bathroom and the most comfortable bed I've slept I for a long time. We'd love to visit again and again...

Having read the great reviews we were very disappointed in this country house hotel. First impressions were poor, with an unkempt drive and gardens, and this sad feel spread to the house. There was no one to tell us about the hotel (when breakfast was served etc). Our loft room had been newly done up and had a very nice bathroom but the price was extremely high., in fact 5star London prices. In addition our son was charged an extra £60 for sleeping on a sofa bed that was extremely uncomfortable. On the upside, breakfast was excellent. I never saw the proprietor to pass on my views.

A classic Victorian house with reception rooms kept in period style, and stairs very squeaky(!), but (only 5)bedrooms and bathrooms well equipped for today's traveller, including luxurious White Company towels and robes, and views to die for across the bay to the mountains of Canisp and iconic Suilven. Afternoon tea (Brodies' brew, plus tea strainer!) and cake in the conservatory or terrace are offered on one's arrival; and the breakfast takes a lot of beating, with freshly squeezed orange juice, a wonderful array of fresh fruit, and locally smoked salmon and haddock on offer (I really recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, as well as the smoked haddock and poached egg). Dinner is no longer served here, but the superbly high standards of cooking from the hotel's Michelin starred restaurant of the past are now transferred to the Caberfeidh pub, a 5 minute drive/25 minute walk away, on the shore in Lochinver and acquired by the owners 2 years ago. Ask the owners when you book to reserve a table at the pub, as it can be pretty popular. This is highland hospitality, with a few quirks, like a garden that's perhaps a challenge to maintain, and not great access to wifi - but if you get to chat to owner Lesley, you'll come away feeling you've been very well catered for, and appreciating what the owners set out to do some years ago in taking on this Victorian house.

We stayed at the Albannach for 1 night in May as the first part of a Highlands trip. It’s a pleasant old house with an amazing view. We were the only people staying which created an odd atmosphere (e.g no one to greet us for 15mins after we arrived). Lovely breakfast though and a nice traditional room.

The major problem for us was lack of any mobile signal and the WiFi was down. Unfortunately I had to take important work calls during our stay and had expressly called up before the visit to ensure we’d have connectivity. I was told we would and yet we arrived and it had been down for 10 days. I ended up working in a scruffy hotel in Lochinver!

Finally, it’s too expensive for the standard of hotel and service. For a lower price I would recommend it for anyone that wants a traditional highlands stay off the beaten track.

Wonderful location with amaizing views accross Lochinver and the mountains behind. Ample parking. About a 30min slow walk to the center of the village or a 6min drive.

If you can would recomend splashing out on the 'penthouse suite' where you can gaze out the window with a nice glass of something into the late highland summer evenings.

We recieved a lovely warm welcome and a fantastic breakfast in the morning. We will be back!
