Stopped in for lunch on a recent visit to the peninsula. It was superb especially as we arrived towards the end of the lunch serving time. Staff brilliant service with a smile and also a genuine interest in their customers. Food was first class and reasonably priced served in very comfortable surroundings. May well return here to stay!!

We visited the hotel in December. We didn't stay there, but had dinner several times. The food is very good. The menu is very authentic and just right. The staff is very welcoming and the service is good.

After many visits to this eatery, we were very disappointed today to be greeted by the most miserable front of house guy we have ever met, who ignored us until we asked for service. He continued to offer very poor customer service and remained extremely dour. To finish off our visit today I had bone in the ham of my... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way from Craignure to Tobermory. Good beer and a standard pub menu - we had Cellen Skink - very tasty. The staff were welsoming and friendly.

The Salen Hotel is a well modernised Victorian building overlooking the yacht anchorage at Salen on the shore of Loch Sunart. The setting is fine example of the best of west highlands scenery,N with clear blue water of the North Atlantic and mountains in the distance. It is a beautiful place and the hotel does justice to the beauty of... More

We stayed for a week in a cottage in Salen and on the final night we decided to dine at The Salen Hotel. It was delicious. The service was great. The food was local and plenty of choice available. There was a great 'local' feel about this hotel and bar. Everyone was extremely friendly. All the meals were well presented... More

Every year we come to this area and thought it was time we tried the Salen for dinner. We were greeted by a very friendly bar maid and shown to our table by a very smiley friendly waitress who was great all night. They have quite a vast menu with a good selection mainly Italian and some traditional meals too.... More

Calle din for supper on the way back from Fort William. Made more than welcome. We asked to move table as there was a dog near us and we didn't want any possible scenes with our dogs. No problem. I had rump steak which was excellent. Bloke on the next table had a Lamb steak and I had food envy,... More

A delightful lunch stop on the way to Arisaig. Very friendly owners/staff and the bar was full of locals, having been to church, including two priests! We enjoyed a simple lunch of soup and smoked salmon – superb. Not may people use this road so not too may tourists, I guess, but what a delightful stop.

Thank Philip N
