“Traditional Highland hospitality in incredibly beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

It's hard not to be impressed by Loch Maree. It is in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland and I have seen most of the country. The hotel itself is very traditional, but has clearly benefited greatly from a change in management and new investment. We had a very warm welcome, great rooms and a decent dinner and breakfast. The bar has some great beers too. This is a very remote area and running a business here can't be easy. I'm really glad the new team here have stepped up to the challenge.

Room Tip: As you'd expect, best to ask for a room overlooking the loch, rather than the road. The views ar...

My wife and I were on a visit to Gairloch last week and we had dinner at the Loch Maree Hotel. We had friends with us (another couple), and when we arrived we were given a warm reception from the owners - Raymond and Caroline. We had pre-dinner drinks in the cosy bar,with Raymond and Caroline making us all feel very welcome, then through to the lovely dining room. We had the most wonderful of views over Loch Maree. The quality of the meal was faultless, the presentation and service was excellent, and the starters, mains and sweets, all delicious and great value. After dinner we adjourned back to the bar, for a drink and a few stories from Raymond and Caroline. We all had a brilliant meal and a great experience at the hotel and the beautiful views rounded off a great evening, and I would definitely recommend it to all visitors to the area. A & A Duncan

On a recent visit to Gairloch we decided to book dinner at the Loch Maree hotel on Sunday 28th July.We were a party of six ( 3 couples ) and found the staff very friendly and welcoming.The service they provided was very good.The views of Loch Maree were just' stunning'.The food was lovely and cooked to perfection. All in our party agreed that we will definitely recommend Loch Maree hotel to others.

Stayed at the Loch Maree Hotel earlier this week. Arrived but there were no signs to show where to sign in, so I stood and waited and a young male member of staff arrived and asked my name and then told me he had no forms for me to fill out. I asked if I needed to book for dinner and was told I could if I wanted to. (Not the best customer service going and a missed opportunity for cross selling and making sure we stayed there for an evening meal) the room was gorgeous with views over loch maree and the standard of the room was very good. We had a meal there and it was very good a blond female member of staff had just started on the 6th August and she was fantastic really helpful polite and well mannered. I asked three times about the boat trips mentioned on a poster as they are run by the owner and was told on that the owner would come and speak to me - they never did so they missed out on at least £40 additional income from us. Bar was very expensive a vodka and diet coke and a pint of shandy was more than £8. There was no information anywhere about places to go and things to do which seemed strange. Basically the blond new lady, the room and the food made the loch maree hotel a great place to stay but they need to work on a decent welcome for people, signs and information. (Four poster bed was creaky and lumpy but did look good)

We stayed here for 1 night on our tour of the north of Scotland. The hotel came up on the Internet when we typed in Gairloch but it is in fact 15 to 20 minutes away from there. However, the hotel is very pleasant, well decorated and in a fantastic position on the banks of Loch Maree. Our room overlooked the loch and was a good size and tastefully decorated. We were initially surprised at the colour of the water from the taps but were reassured by the explanation printed on the back of the door. The food both at breakfast and evening meal was excellent and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the loch.

Wanted to go back to the refurbished Loch Maree Hotel having visited in the late 90's.
Couldn't get a room so just went in for coffee.
Not impressed by the makeover and the area towards the loch where the fishing boats used to lie up needs a bit of landscaping.
However asked for coffee and got one small pot and two small cups.
On going to pay I was charged £6.50!
I did not get a receipt...
Lovely place but needs some management attention.

Was at Loch Marre when decided to go foor lunch. The Loch Maree Hotel was in reach
Arriving we found a very unhappy owner Raymond
He had just been robbed by previous staff so service was not treally available
Undaunted Raymend said he could offer a short lunch menu
Delivered politely we had lunch under these arduous circumstances
Very help to two travellors
So if passing Raymond will look after you give him some business to alleviate previous bad momenmt for him and his wife
Should have charged the rats for robbing him of till monies
Will return to see how he fairs

Room Tip: only had lunch but the view over the Loch must be a must
