Reviewed 30 May 2012

I recently stayed here for 3 nights so that I could walk the local Corbetts and I'm very glad I did. Paul and Pauline were welcome personified and Paul was a mine of information about local paths and history. The place just has a very nice atmosphere, which was helped by some glorious weather. Breakfast and Dinner were timed for my convenience and nothing was left on the plate. My only criticism, and one which Paul was already aware of, is that the milk jugs for tea, are part of the new fashion for impracticability, in that however careful you are, some of the contents run down the side of the jug. My bedroom had all the features that one would normally expect of a bedroom, and had I been in possession of a cat, I could have swung it with impunity. Out of curiousity I had a look at the upstairs lounge which has a stunning view of Slioch, but on the downside a monstrous TV screen. There are lots of books and leaflets about local walks and a pine martin who is keen on jam sandwiches and who can be glimpsed at very close quarters through the kitchen window

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon and truly loved it. The hosts, Paul and Pauline, are wonderful and the food is fantastic. The rooms were very clean, comfy beds and a good shower. We enjoyed that there was no tv and only spotty phone service, we didn't fly halfway across the world and get a room in the beautiful highlands to watch tv in our room. Loch Maree is gorgeous and about a one minute drive and the little town of Gairloch is only about 20 minutes and has the most beautiful beach. Paul and Pauline were very helpful with suggestions of things not to miss.
I know I already mentioned this but the simplicity of this small hotel is so charming, especially considering where it is located. You get a comfy bed, a clean room, gracious hosts, delicious food and amazing scenery without any distractions or interruptions. We would love to visit the Old Mill again!
When you go, make sure to see how the pine marten is doing. :)

we stayed here in this small, quiet hotel. The food was first class and the couple who run this hotel were helpful and charming. I am a wheelchair user and the rooms are all on the ground floor (one large step to get in) and so very convieninet. There is no TVand radio and mobile reception and no boradband so the ideal excuse to cut oneself off from the world int his peaceful venue.

During our stay for 3 days in this Hotel,we found the service and food to be excellent and the hosts,Paul and Pauline were very helpful and friendly.
Our room on the first floor was comfortable and had a balcony which was good to view the garden area.

The scenery around loch Maree with redpoint,gareloch and Applecross quite stunning.

The only criticism is single visitors may like a TV in their room although the outer lounge areas were well equipped with a large tv and an excellent and up to date library of books about the region.

Unfortunately the time we visited there were plenty of miggiesw but this was offsetr witrh seeing red deer,a golden eagle and a pine martin at the hotel kitchen window.

Although we thought the decor in the public rooms was a little dated, the hosts were very welcoming and the food did not disappoint!
Our room, though a little small, was clean and bright with a lovely ensuite. The lack of a TV or even radio in the room was perculiar, but not of huge importance on a one night stay. The large lounge was suitably equipped with a huge TV, Sky and Audio plus plenty of reading material.
Our meal in the evening was very good along with a good bottle of wine. Breakfast too was also very good with everything you could wish for.
We were there for just the one night but I imagine this would be a good place to be based to visit the wonderful countryside surrounding it.
The hosts were very pleasant and eager to help with any problems or questions on the local area. A comfortable and genial place to stay.

We were pleased with our choice of this small hotel. Normally staying in much bigger hotels this compared favourably on price. We were greeted by Paul and Pauline with a friendly welcome and made to feel at home. The room was warm and the bed cosy with pristine white bedding. The setting near the beautiful Loch Maree allowed us freedom to walk the hills and watch the wildlife. The fresh air gave us hearty appetites which meant Pauline's excellent food was welcomed in the evenings. We enjoyed our stay and for us seeing the Red Deer and the Pine Marten at close quarters added to our enjoyment. We will stay again.

We recently stayed in this hotel which is in a stunning location. The owners were most welcoming and charming.

However the accommodation was dingy, and practically windowless. Outside sitting area was unkempt. Dinner was over-priced and disappointing.

The whole package was over-priced compared to other hotels in which we stayed on this trip.
