We stayed a couple of nights at Riverside. The owners were able to accommodate our late arrival. Our room was quite small but it was perfectly functional. The B&B was larger than we expected, possibly 11 or 12 rooms based on the numbers on the doors. Breakfast was excellent each morning, definitely setting us up for the day. Location was good, less than 5 minutes walk on the flat to the harbour area and shops / restaurants.

We stayed at the Riverside Inn after a recommendation from a local. Chris who ran the guest house was friendly and helpful. His knowledge of the local area was invaluable ranging from days out to local restaurants and bars. Although it doesn't have a seafront location the walk to get there is literally 5 mins max. The rooms were clean and of a decent size and the room was well priced. Breakfast in the morning was good and we would definitely return if we are in the Highlands again.
Good work all round from this guest house.

We stayed here during a whistle stop tour of the western coast. We were welcomed with a smile by Charlie, the perfect host. The bedrooms were spacious and spotless and breakfast was delicious. If you are visiting Ullapool stay here, I recommend it highly.

We selected the Riverside after speaking to the staff at The Ceildih Place (where the wedding we were attending was being held). Any emails sent to the guest house were promptly replied to which is always a positive sign.
Charlie and his lovely staff are delightful and friendly. We were greeted on arrival by Charlie and shown to all our rooms. The bed in our double room was a small double which did not give my husband and me a good nights sleep, which was a shame. The bathroom was small but well equipped, even a hair dryer is supplied.
The breakfast is served in a bright airy room and a charming young lady takes your order and serves the food and drinks. There is fresh fruit, cereals, juices, yoghurts and water as a buffet and toast tea, coffee and hot food is served to you.
The location is great as you are only a 5 minute walk from the centre and all the noise of the ships docking, etc. Yes there is a primary school opposite but we were there over the weekend, so it was empty!
Check was easy, with Charlie giving plenty of travelling advice.

Stayed here for two nights and very good it was. Welcomed on arrival and shown to our room which looked towards the local school. Very spacious and comfortable. When we went back down to the lounge to enjoy a cup of tea (available at all times) Charlie the proprietor came in for a chat offering restaurant recommendations and being very helpful. Breakfasts were also excellent with fruit available to add to your cereal as well as excellently cooked full Scottish.

It's a must for the next time we visit Scotland. Thanks very much Charlie and your team.
