This hotel could not be described as luxurious, but it is clean, has a well stocked bar, a truly excellent juke box, some good food and warm welcoming bar/lounge. As a regular traveler to this area, I have stayed in this hotel on many occasions. It's normally around £80-£100 for a room for two people sharing. The rooms are all pretty much the same, but the last time I stayed I had a pleasant surprise and was allocated a 'family' room where we had a true double and a sofabed that would sleep two children comfortably. Bar food pretty decent and certainly wholesome, owners are very accommodating at dinner and breakfast too, nothing is any or too much bother. It's a friendly hotel that all adds to the experience for touring this part of Scotland.
The owner is a biker too, so when you turn up wet, cold & tired, he is very understanding and helpful about the need to dry off your leathers. The welcome and friendly relaxed atmosphere will have me returning again and again. It's also a handy stop over for visiting Eilean Donan Castle, Applecross and Wester Ross in general.
Must be one of the closest hotels to any railway station anywhere, which the train ride to this spot is also a must for those not travelling by their own means.
