Service brilliant. Food and drink great. Location perfect. Very welcoming and friendly. Only reason why rated Very Good rather than Excellent is that the room we had (in the Annexe) was dated and needed some TLC. And perhaps the eye of a perfectionist!

Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at Poolewe Hotel. Customer feedback is very important to us. The Hotel is closed now for the Winter period and we will be able to carry out essential maintenance and redecoration. I do note your comment regarding the room you stayed in in the Annexe being in need of some TLC and can assure you that this, together with other rooms, will be addressed during the closure. We have had a very busy Summer period and the rooms have been in constant use so we take advantage of the Winter closure to do these updates. I do hope you will visit us again next year and thank you again for taking the time to review your stay.

The hotel is not worth the money. Suggest using a locaĺ bed and breakfast. Room small and cold. There is a lack of staff. No evening restaurant on our visit and had to have a bar meal. The area of the bar for eating also had no heating. There was a sign in the bathroom sayìng to

Further to your recent review on your stay at Poolewe Hotel and having discussed your concerns with the Hotel Manager, we somewhat 'baffled' by your comments. The Hotel and rooms are well heated this time of year and we have been fully staffed. We cannot recall any room having a sign saying to keep the door closed due to fan noise either. With regard to breakfast, it is cooked to order so can take a little longer and we are always careful to ensure that guests requests for amounts are catered for. If you would like to discuss this further I would be only too pleased to hear from you.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Poolewe Hotel. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found your room comfortable with amazing views and staff friendly and chatty. I am sorry that breakfast caused a problem for you with regard to your diabetes and having to wait for the food. Our breakfast meals are cooked to order so obviously do take a little longer particularly during busy periods, however, if you visit again and we sincerely hope you will, if you mention this to the staff the night before and give your order and time they will do their best to ensure it is ready for you. The Hotel will be closing for the Winter period and that is when we carry our essential maintenance and updates and in particular the outside of the Hotel will be repainted and updated. Once again, thank you for your feedback which is very valuable to us, and we hope you will visit us again when next in the area.

We stayed here for 2 nights in September - our room was at the front of the hotel but still quiet (Poolewe High Street is not a busy road!). The bed was supremely comfortable and there was a really good hot water supply for the bath. Dinner in the bar was very good both nights
