“Perfect Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

Having earned a precious weekend away, as this was our main holiday this year, there could have been nowhere better than this hotel. The situation was fantastic, with great views. The staff where also very accommodating and it was good to see the owners Sean and Anita on hand all times of the day, always being helpful with local tips for enhancing the break. The food was excellent for both breakfast and especially dinner. I have no hesitation in recommending the Myrtle Bank to anyone.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms offer the best views.

Stayed in a large, front facing family room with beautiful views of the bay.
The hotel is spotlessly clean everywhere and the room was delightful and modern with plug sockets both sides of the bed....horray!
Amazingly it also had a large mirror on a dressing table/ desk for ease of hair drying and make up application. This is something that some 5* hotels have been failing to provide of late!
The meal at night was so tasty and the portions enormous. The wine (red) however, seemed disproportionately expensive.
The evening restaurant staff were somewhat less happy and friendly than the breakfast staff who were very cheerful and helpful.
If we ever go whale watching in Gairloch again, we would definitely stay here.

Stayed with a group of girls in August 2014. Very comfortable hotel and the location was good for Gairloch. Very nice views out of the front of the hotel. Staff was really accommodating for our group - we arrived late our first night and would've missed breakfast the next morning at the advertised time. The staff cooked for us both mornings well after the time stated, which was a nice touch. Had dinner at the hotel one night - good food and the portions are gigantic (you've been warned!!). Overall, a nice hotel for a weekend away.

Room Tip: If you can get a room with a view, go that route!!

This appealing hotel is situated facing Gairloch. When the weather cooperates there can be great sunset viewing. We had a large, plain room with a great view. There was new,large bathroom. This was a nice mid-range U.S. type hotel except that staff was seldom seen.
There were a great many stairs here; 3 short groups to get to the door and 3 more groups to get to the unattended desk. There is a long stairway to the second floor rooms and two more steps up for room entry for some of the rooms. The food was good but service was poor.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the Loch on the second floor

As usual enjoyed our short stay this time ( we normally stay at The Myrtle 7 -10 nights). To us and our Grandson Cameron it really is a special place to stay. It is extremely comfortable with the most stunning views and sunsets. The food is really good and a terrific selection of breakfasts.So once again thankyou Sean ,Anita ,Neil and all the team .

Room Tip: Book a front room

I was booked in for one night as I was taking my mother to Aultbea as she worked there during WW2 as a wren. As she is elderly we wanted a hotel where she would be comfortable in and have a pleasant outlook. This hotel ticked all these boxes. The weather was wet and we decided to eat in at the hotel. The food was good with huge helpings. Would like to go back for longer next time. Would recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: rooms to the front have a view over the water

Fantastic place to stay, right on the shore of the loch. Massive room easily fitted the extra single bed for our son. Beautiful view over the bay. Within 5 minutes of leaving our room we'd discovered a sea urchin and a starfish in the rock pools across the quiet road.
Restaurant fantastic, delicious seafood, also very good vegetarian and even vegan options. Staff all very friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble.
Would highly recommend.
