“Stunning house!”
Reviewed 27 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We had a wonderful weeks stay in early December and luckily had some mild and dry weather. The area is beautiful but as expected very quiet at this time of year. The house is probably the nicest we have ever stayed in, it is equipped and furnished to a very high standard and is spotlesley clean. The views over the harbour are stunning and on 2 mornings we even had deer in the garden. Overall a lovely relaxing break and we can't wait to return, Thanks

“Beautiful house in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We just finished a lovely week at Waterloo House. On our arrival the house was cleaned to a very high standard and there were lots of little unexpected extras that gave the house a very luxurious feeling. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking every night. The sofa was extremely comfortable for relaxing in the evening. There was a comfortable feeling throughout and the house was beautifully decorated reflecting the surrounding area. In the surrounding area there are lots of walks for all abilities with spectacular views. Even in poor weather conditions the walks are enjoyable and knowing you have such a comfy home with a hot tub waiting for you makes them all the more enjoyable. From the set up we felt that we could make Waterloo House our home for the week. Although the week was far too short to explore all the surroundings and try every flavour of pie at the Lochinver Larder we might have to plan another stay! Thank you Ben.

Awesome location and delightfully luxurious and spacious house. Just right for this extended family of 6 ranging in age from 3 to 76. The view from the big picture window in the sitting room is probably one of the best in the UK maybe even in Europe. Seeing the sunrise and bathe Suilven in rich glowing reds was an experience in its own right. The landlord was amazingly helpful and seemed to have thought of absolutely everything. We loved it and despite the long distance we had to travel to get here, we will surely be back.

“Fabulous! - home from home”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I cannot recommend Waterloo House highly enough. The accommodation Ben has created is simply lovely. Your every need is catered for in terms of both comfort and practicality. Rooms are well-furnished with quality items, lovely linens and truly comfy beds. The kitchen has everything one needs for proper cooking (if one desires), bake bread, cakes etc. It felt like a real home from home.
The views are fantastic and you can lie in bed and watch the sunrise over the mountains and veg out in the hot tub under the stars.
Well located for a good range of walks for all abilities which really give you a flavour of the unique Assynt area.
We loved it and hope to return.

“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Had a really good trip to Lochinver. The house is exactly as described, clean, spacious and with really good amenities (including the hot tub).

Beds are comfy (but be aware the downstairs double is only a 4'6" bed so a bit of a tight squeeze these days).

Dealing with the owner was very straight forward.
