Not to be missed when in the area even with the long sail up from Tobermory with the wind from the East. Another great meal.

The restaurant was busy, but we had preordered and were quickly shown to our table. I ordered fresh prawns, which were absolutely stunning (locally caught from lake Sunart), followed by a cheese board. The staff were very patient with us and fulfilled all our requests.

Would have those prawns again, they were delicious.

This hotel & result is in the middle of Salen with parking out front & across the road. When you go through the front door it's a bit of wonder through the corridors to the bar, passing the result on the way.
You order your food at the bar, the tables in the bar area our all round ones, if you want your food on the table at a deceit level sit on the chairs, if you us the benches you'll find your self leaning over the table to eat.
The food is well cooked & tastes OK, the same goes for the pudding's which our all home cooked. This is our second visit here, as we visited here last year, & kept in the back of our minds in case we could not find anywhere else we could eat or on the way back from somewhere & need a hot main meal.

This is hotel has such a welcoming bar and restaurant! I have a personal aversion to larger older hotel buildings - totally unreasonable! - and the Salen Hotel proves the point that my prejudice against building appearance is totally unjustified! We (a group of 4) found the welcome and the quality so good that we returned 4 times during our recent visit to Mull. We were staying elsewhere so we can't comment on accommodation but if it is to the same standard we experienced it will be very good. We look forward to our return to Mull and a return to The Salen Hotel

Really bright lighting and dated decor made the atmosphere in the bar here quite unwelcoming. The food was decent enough pub standard but we didn't stay for pudding or a second drink as we didn't feel comfortable.
