I have stayed in the Old Inn now and again over several years and have seen the business grow and the Inn get better and beter.
The last stay was to meet the owner Alistair to discuss booking the Gairloch Highland Hotel for our car club weekend in April 2013. I booked all 27 rooms in the Gairloch Highland Hotel , and four rooms in the Old Inn.
Alistair is the motovating force for both the Inn and the Highland Hotel (only 3 mins apart) and as such I have to thank him for all his attention to detail. He made my job as organiser a lot easier by being involved with all aspects of the booking, from car parking to gala dinner EVERYTHING was taken in both, his, and his staff's stride.
The members of the car club are all successful in their chosen carreers and as such have high expectations , all of which were realised by Alistair and his staff.
We ate in the Old Inn several times finding the food very good and the menu quite varied. Chef popped out to see if everything was ok.which was a nice touch, but the staff had already checked if we were happy.
The bar in the Inn also deserves a mention as the staff look after the beer well and the locals make you welcome, great.
The rooms were all of a high standard both inside the Gairloch Highland Hotel or the annex (30secs) away.
The Old Inn has its own special atmosphere, very welcoming and once again the rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable
The staff are all polite, courteous, and helpfull at all times and no request was too much trouble.
From reception booking in 52 people all at the same time, to feeding us all, mainly at the same time they were extremely efficient.
If travelling in the Gairloch area you will not find a more welcoming, relaxed ambience than in this pair of hotels.
I know that people need to speak as they find but my experience is that Alistair and his staff are second to none when it comes to ATTENTION TO DETAIL.
