We stayed in Pool House taking advantage of a two night midweek inclusive package for a room named H.M.S. Diadem. When we arrived we were shown over the public areas of the house and were impressed at the standard of decoration. Our suite was fantastic with bedroom, bathroom and sitting room with the most magnificent views over Loch Ewe. Binoculars were provided and we used them to see an otter one evening. One of the many delights of the suite is the Victorian bath, restored with all its original features including side spray and very steep sides.
The evening meal was quite an event, in a good way. We met in the drawing room for apertifs and canapes, dress was smart casual. We chose our wine and perused the menu. There were five courses with no choices, we had previously given any dietery preferences. We were taken through to the dining room and seated at separate tables in the large dining room. The courses were served at a comfortably leisurely pace while we admired the stunning sunset over Loch Ewe.
After dinner drinks could be taken either in the drawing room or, our preference, in the bar with its full length snooker table and walk-in whisky display area. One evening, we were honoured by the attentions of Splodge, the resident 17 year old cat.
The approach roads to Poolewe are narrow, winding but with picturesque views. The southern route is our favourite albeit with a few miles of single track road with passing places.
It was an excellent stay, we would be happy to return.
