We didn't stay in the rooms but had nice evening meal. Staff were pleasant and food came fairly quickly. Nice menu. The Achiltibuie hand dived scallop starter was divine. Cullen skink was good too. Lots of really nicely cooked veggies came with our main meals which is right up our street. Would come back!

Arch Inn in lovely location. Unfortunately we will not go there EVER again. Been there lots in past years with family and friends and the view is astonishing. Tried twice booking in the last couple of years, What's happened. Yes they've taken our bookings, card numbers etc. and made all the right noises but alas I can't believe it it happened again (twice) first we had booked 2 nights and when we arrived they only had the room for 1 night and Friday when we arrived we were booked in for Sunday. Lot of good that would have been as swe were picking people up from the ferry on Saturday. For goo9dness sake get a quiet place to answer your phone and take bookings as you clearly can't hear anythng in the bar. WARNING please check your booking at least 2 or 3 times before you go. We certainly will be picking somewhere else to stay

We didn't stay but ate. The staff were absolutely lovely - all chatty, charming, young and attentive. The scallop starter was fantastic - really delicious - I have had celeriac with scallops before but not curry oil. The sirloin was a bit tough (speak to your butcher, he needs a rap over the knuckles) but well cooked and being accompanied by spinach and mushrooms lifted it beyond the ordinary. However, fried onion rings (bought, not made) were a shame in such a lovely restaurant. Pudding was a lovely lemon tart and the wine was very, very reasonably priced (bottle about £16 and drinkable, not rough). Al in all, good quality and certainly worth what we paid. However, if all the courses had reached the standard of the scallop starter it would have been truly outstanding.

We stayed one night during our Scotland road trip. After a long drive from Mey through the most incredible scenery, we arrived in gorgeous Ullapool. The inn overlooks the harbour and it was almost impossible to take my eyes off the spectacular view. We checked in at the bar and went to our room. We booked a family room (2 adults 2 kids aged 9 & 13), and it was actually a disabled room with a double, single and fold-away bed. The shower-room was quite large and the shower had a fold up seat in it with curtains all around. This made the shower very small and awkward. The whole room was very clean and modern and had everything we needed, but I'm glad we were only there 1night as it was cramped. The room was on the ground floor overlooking the tables outside so we needed the blind shut as we got changed for dinner. We ate outside and the food was delicious. Our kids spent ages skimming stones, we all had a great evening. Our beds were clean and comfy,breakfast was very good. The staff were all excellent, friendly and helpful. All in all, good value for money.

Room Tip: If you have no kids, ask for first floor room.

This was an ideal place for a stopover when catching the ferry or on tour around the highlands. Lovely view over Loch Broom. The room was clean and comfortable, the food in the restaurant very good. Breakfast was good if you like cooked otherwise the toast and cerals just average.

Room Tip: Room no 4 has a good view

Spent a night here in May 2013. Sat outside and was stunned by the views from the seating directly over road. Room was great and also had dinner at the restaurant. A fantastic place with proficient staff and locally sourced food. Couldn't find anything on the negative side. Staff let me park motorbike off main road and in courtyard for peace of mind. Hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Ours was ground floor overlooking front of premise, thought it would be noisy but heard nothing. Gre...
