“Best Yet !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

Having been on this shearings holiday before I already new what a lovely hotel and holiday this could be but must say that my visit from the 10th Sept was the most enjoyable yet despite the bad weather. I went on the trip in June which was also very enjoyable when we had Jon as our driver, for Sept our driver was Stuart both from the Isle of Wight what an asset these young men are to Shearings, nothing was too much trouble to either of them to make our holidays enjoyable. Their hard work, friendlyness, and patiences guarenteed all had a good time. Both these drivers should be commended.
The hotel in a prime position is comfortable and efficiently run by the manager and his deputy. Thank you for a lovely stay and I will be back in the near future.

Room Tip: recommend a seaview

This is our third shearings holiday, having been to portpatrick and dornoch in the past. Friendly from the start, everyone getting to know each other. We booked a premier room with views of the sea, 4 poster bed and brand new bathroom, which was really lovely and comfortable. Our coach driver Stuart from the start organised our holiday and made us all feel really welcome. We had rainy weather and tours were changed around so that we had a lovely sunny trip to skye. We felt that he went the extra mile to make this a memorable holiday. The meals in the restaurant gave us plenty of choice and there was friendly bar staff and entertainment afterwards. Does the guest who has room 007 always get called James bond .. what a laugh!

Wonderful week staff extremely friendly and food very good- beautiful view over Gairloch Bay .Stuart our driver from the Isle of Wright was second to none - nothing was too much trouble went out of his way to make the week work for all the coach passengers. Must admit I have never laughed so much in one week the rapport of Stuart and all the coach passengers was brillant Certainly a holiday when looking back on will make you want to laugh all over again.

Very nice hotel, the staff were excellent very good food served quickly and efficiently. The entertainment was very good and all inclusive is certainly a good deal. The room was okay needs updating no shower just a bath which applied to quite a few of the rooms, must be difficult for some clients. Stuart our driver was absolutely brilliant certainly helped make the holiday very enjoyable

Have to admit - this was our third visit in 3 years! That tells the story!
On this all inclusive deal you can have dinner bed & breakfast & free drinks for most of the evening for only £50 per night (on a self drive basis)
I keep bringing family members here & it has done my reputation no harm at all!
The elitists of this world would find the rooms a wee bit dated - but really they are absolutely fine. The service from the staff is absolutely first class.
As for the food - have never found any cause for complaint. The evening menu changes every day and the choice is good if not extensive. The dishes are always well prepared and tasty.
Evening entertainment is a bit tired - I heard the same jokes from last year.





Overall this is great value & I would recommend.

The Gairloch Hotel was very good, food really tasty, entertainment very good and the room we had was nice and spacious.. The staff were all very helpful. But the best thing was the driver of the coach, Stuart, who came from the Isle of Wight. A really nice friendly young man who was very helpful and had our interests at heart. He is a real treasure. Nothing was too much trouble. Stuart and the wonderful Scottish countryside made this one of the best Shearings holidays that we have been on and that is saying something after 80 or more.

The Gaifrloch Hotel is on a sea loch with some beautiful views. My single room was roomy and comfortalble - unusually so for the single traveller. The staff, mainly foreign, were efficient without being offhand with plenty of smiles. The food was good wothout being spetacular.
Thre was entrtainmet most evenings but for those, like me, who prefer to have a quiet drink and read there were quiet rooms available.
All in all a comfortable and pleasant experience for the undemanding tourist . I would be happy to return
