“An excellent stay in a beautiful scenic village.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

I was doing a tour of The Scottish Highlands on the train and stayed here for 1 night on Monday 22nd of October 2012. Although I was traveling alone I had a room with a double and a single bed. All the staff were very friendly even to the extent of offering me a lift back to the train station which was about half a mile away up a rather steep hill. I declined the offer as I would have rather walked and soaked up the stunning scenery of Plockton. As my train didn't leave until just after noon I had plenty of time in the morning to explore the village and admire it's scenery, which in places is rather breathtaking. I also dined in the restaurant in the evening and sampled the local smoked fish platter which was one of the best fish platters I have ever tasted. I was glad I only ordered this as a starter as there was plenty there and I doubt I would have managed to eat a main meal platter. I had the smoked haddock and salmon fishcakes for main course and a smoked Scottish cheeseboard for desert. The price was very reasonable too as a one night bed and breakfast stay (scrambled eggs and smoked salmon for breakfast, although there are plenty of other options to choose from) a 3 course evening meal washed down by a couple of pints of Belhaven Best came to a grand total of £66. Plockton is now my new favourite place in the UK, just edging out Polperro in Cornwall and I will definitely be paying another visit next year.

We booke a 4 night package including be,breakfast and eveing meal,I specified a sea view room,it was a loft room which meant it was quite cramped,but there was a sea view.

The room was very clean,nicely fitted out and was very comfortable,breakfast was superb a very wide selections,beautifully prepared,recommend the moked products from their own smokehouse.

Staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant for evening meal was superb,with an excellent selction of locally sourced produce

Room Tip: Check size of room when booking if wanting a sea view

Stayed at the Plockton Inn for 3 weeks in October (2012) during a business trip. Room (No.6 ) was a double room with ensuite and with a twin aspect, and notwithstanding it over looked the main village road and sat above the dining room, it was very quiet. The bed was ok, but did have some 'noisy' springs, and before eye brows are raised (LOL) I was single occupancy, goodness, what were you thinking! The breakfast choice was excellent, as was the standard of lunch and dinner menu, with lots of specials which were always popular and often disappeared fast! This was not a problem as the standard menu was varied and equally delicious with lots of fish choices as you might expect with the hotel sitting so close to the water. The 2 bars were warm and friendly although the popularity of the food meant that seating was at a premium due to reservations. The bar also had weekly live traditional music and a quiz night, although it did seem that one round of questions was strictly local knowledge designed to preclude visitors winning! (LOL). The staff were always welcoming and the standard of service SUPERB, including the early breakfast, which Chef Mary was more than happy to prepare! All in all a highly recommended Highland hotel which I would have no hesitation recommending!

We have eaten here many times - OK so the dining room is quite plain but it is clean and does not affect the food. The staff are perhaps not as efficient as they were some years ago, perhaps because they no longer employ locals, but the food especially the seafood is excellent.

Staff friendly, room clean but overpriced at Pounds 39.50/night (each). Binoculars should have been supplied to see the TV which was so small. They should drag themselves into the 21st Century and charge PER ROOM! You have to change a double bed anyway so you are effectively paying almost 40 Pounds for a breakfast. Went to the bar where they had live music, musicians were very good but drowned out by exceptionally noisy boozy birthday party.
Bit of advice from a seasoned traveller: Check out a B&B, go to the local chippy (30 seconds from the seafront) where the fish and chips were excellent at Pounds 5.50 (Haddock or Lemon Sole) and you won't be disappointed.

Stayed one night with my partner. The staff were welcoming and helpful on arrival. When we booked I was told it was the last room available (Tuesday night, but Plockton during summer months is always busy). The room was okay (nothing exciting!) and the en suite was adequate. One negative was the electric shower which I don't like but the tiles and suite were relatively new and fresh. In the evening we ate in the dining room and it was very good. Langoustine starter was delicious. The atmosphere was bright and informal. The same room is used for breakfast, which it is probably more suited for. Breakfast was equally tasty which included their home smoked salmon. We went for a drink in the bar in the evening which was packed out. There was live folk music being played by two local musicians. There was a real buzz about the place and all in all very relaxed and pleasant stay.

had looked forward to this break for some time , the room could have been cleaner empty wrappers from previous occupier just a bit grubby looking, when you have a dog you never get the best . The food was a big!! disappointment, evening meal very average and overcooked , worst smoked salmon & scrambled egg I've ever had ,next morning I asked for hard boiled eggs the white was running out the shell when I opened it ,if you cannot boil an egg, sell up or employ someone who can. Never saw any management just young locals & east Europeans

Room Tip: we were across road from inn the best thing for the dog as we had a garden
