visited this hotel really by accident due to car break-down. we were camping and visited for drinks every day twice for 3 days. one of the best places we visited pub-wise on a 3 week holiday in scotland with real-ale and friendly staff. there is a public bar at the back.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in the summer and we had a wonderful time. Our rooms were clean and spacious and we found Nigel and his staff to be welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the bar each evening and found the food to be excellent value with great choice. the breakfasts were plentiful too. Of course the main attraction is the location of this hotel with its fantastic views over the loch but I really would recommend it and we will definately visit again

Just returned from a two night stay, not sure if the reviewer who posted such a negative review was in the same hotel but could'nt disagree more. We booked here especially as this is the only hotel in the area which allows dogs to stay with you. The owners themselves having 2 very friendly and cheeky labs called Breaah and Hamish ( mother and son ). We were shown up to our room which was very spacious with views of the Loch. We were informed of meal times etc and felt very welcome at once. The room was clean, well appointed and very warm. The food was excellent, realistically priced, well presented and good choice of menu with lots of specials, had the scallops which were cooked to perfection. Ate in the hotel both nights as food was so good. Best breakfast I have had in a long time, great choice and good quality ingredients. Overall very good value and looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Room 6, great views, very spacious.

Didnt stay, only had food and a few ales. Got a great seat by the fire looking out across the bay. food was spot on, and was great value, i thoroughly reccommend the steak pie! 3 ales on, but 2 is plenty variety for me anyway! service was fine even though they were very busy.

Lochcarron is a beautiful location, well worth a drive through. But we made a mistake making the hotel an overnight stop. The reception is in the bar, which may be a local favourite for a pint but is not an inspiring start. The common area is rather rough around the edges. Access to the rooms above warn you that there is no luxury here. The rooms are not in good shape (the photos created a much different impression), and the washrooms less so....I decided to skip my daily shower. At night, I put a suitcase at the door as it didn't close well.

The talk the next morning with other guests, from Europe, focused on the poor quality of the hotel and its rooms and washrooms. The same view was had by other members of our family...we had 3 rooms.

My wife was very disappointed, as she had done the booking. When we arrived, we tried to find other availabilities in nearby Skye, but there was nothing to be had for the night.

It was the most disappointing stay of the vacation...of any vacation! I hesitated between rating it as terrible or as poor...I chose "poor" as I imagine there may be worse out there somewhere. But when we talk between ourselves, we definitely say it was terrible.

I found this hotel on the internet and wish we had decided to stay somewhere else. The room was large but not very clean and was very dingy and outdated. The food however was good in the restaurant. The hotel needs to update their rooms and reception area. There was no one to greet you when you arrived and the service was haphazard at best.
