Just spent a couple of nights here with my wife on our Scottish road trip and this is a great hotel in a great location. Our standard room was spacious and very clean. The hotel has a great loch side position so there are wonderful views to be had. The first night we ate in the tavern area and the...

This is an old building recently renovated by Robin and his team. The Convoy bar is very welcoming with very interesting well cooked bar food. The Fat Whippet restaurant where you also have breakfast is a lovely very tastefully decorated room with superb fine dining and great breakfasts. Views out to sea are great and we certainly saw an otter...

Hotel front faces west over the ocean with seals and otters coming in close. Premises tastefully decorated , very clean and managed to a high standard by welcoming hosts. Good food and drink. This hotel will not disappoint ! It is also very convenient for those partaking the North Coast 500 tour route.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Aultbea. The owners have done a wonderful job of refurbishing this hotel and keeping the integrity of this classic. This hotel is over 150 years old and they have done a marvelous job. The staff in all aspects are attentive, polite and genuine. The room we had was great looking out over...

Lovely location, recent tasteful refurbishment of building. Enthusiastic and friendly, attentive owners and staff. Restaurant provides interesting and very high quality food. A must to visit! Only 8 rooms so long term booking essential. Superior rooms are worth the extra New arctic convoy museum worth a visit nearby.

The majority of previous reviews for this hotel all seem positive, but I experienced some small difficulties. The room allocated (on a standard tariff) was small and dark (The walls are painted black (or navy blue). There is just room for the bed and little else! The bathroom is even smaller, more akin to the kind found in a mobile...

We stayed here for one night whilst doing the NC500. We had a very warm welcome on arrival. Our room was fine although disappointed with the view (was hoping for a view of the water). The two steps down into our ensuite were a bit tricky in the night but a handrail had been fitted which helped. We had a...

We are on a tour of the Scotland and have stayed at a variety of hotels with restaurants. This hotel has the potential to be one of the very best in Scotland. At first glance you see the older parts of the building and then you see the new investment in some of the rooms and dinning area. This is...

Stayed here for one night on our trip round north of scotland. Had a superb room overlooking the loch. Very clean, good decor. Ate the bar which served good food. Hotel has been tastefully refurbished. Visited the Arctic Convoy exhibition in the village - very interesting. Would stay again.
