Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great house in a beautiful location
Lovely comfortable house with great views. Well designed house of a high standard which was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Very tranquil setting and so welcoming and warm to come back to after exploring each day. A delightful welcome food pack was there on arrival which was a pleasant surprise. Ullapool is only 4 miles away so it was easy to get further food supplies or visit places to eat. Alison was very friendly and phoned the day before arrival to give lots of information and then followed up with emails to make sure we had the details. We found Ardmair Bay House to be an excellent base for our day trips both north and south and would stay again if up in that region.

Beautiful Luxury House
This is our second visit to Ardmair Bay House, and it won't be our last. It is the perfect place to relax and forget about the hustle and bustle of modern life. The location has fantastic views across the bay and plenty of walks to enjoy the great outdoors. The house has everything you could need for a luxury break, with quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

Fantastic house and location
House is superb everything you'd want and more, stunning views, Alison the owner is very friendly and helpful. The welcome hamper excellent and much appreciated. The Seaforth fish and chip shop (and restaurant) in Ullapool is excellent, and you must visit Lochinver Larder, best pies ever! We'll definitely be back.

Fantastic Week
We arrived at this luxury modern house to be met with fantastic views across Ardmair Bay. The house is situated in a perfect quiet location, yet only a ten minute drive from Ullapool. A perfect base for exploring the Scottish Highlands. A beautiful luxurious house. The rooms are spacious and inviting, the log burner a welcome extra on a cold night, and a hot tub overlooking Ardmair Bay– very relaxing after a day exploring. The welcome pack of wine, smoked salmon, cheese, shortbread, coffee, milk and eggs was a lovely gesture, along with the fresh flowers in the dining area. The pre-holiday telephone call from Alison was an added bonus with restaurant recommendations, trip ideas and things to do in the local area. We explored the Bone Caves and Knockan Crag. Spent a day driving the one-track roads around the fantastic beaches north of Ardmair, before heading for Kylesku. We ate the most wonderful pies in Lochinver and spent a half day Kayaking off Drumbeg with Jules which was fabulous. The local restaurants and cafes were superb, especially the Seafood Shack in Ullapool. We had a fantastic week at Ardmair Bay House. Thank you, Alison and Alistair, we will return for another holiday in the future.

Fabulous
A beautiful stylish house that is absolutely perfect for enjoying the outdoors and the beauty of the West coast of Scotland. The house is immaculate, spacious and very well equipped with everything you would need. The hot tub overlooking the bay is wonderful. The views from the house are stunning and a short walk takes you down to a pebble beach that is perfect for swimming - and if that is a bit chilly just head back up to the hot tub. The owners were really helpful with recommendations and the personal contact before arrival was so nice. We enjoyed a week at Ardmair and didn't want to go home but will look forward to returning for another holiday in future.

WOW ! Stunning house in the most peaceful of settings
Beautiful modern home with absolutely everything you would need for a stay - sipping a drink in the hot tub looking out over the water - life doesn't get much better. Such a peaceful location and yet only 8 minutes or so from Ullapool . Perfect for travelling further afield too and oh so lovely to come home to and kick start the wood burner when the weather is wet and miserable outside. Alistair and Alison are lovely hosts and have thought of everything for their home including a lovely welcome touch of wine, biscuits, milk, smoked salmon, eggs and fresh flowers. We have stayed in a number of 5 star and " luxury" resorts worldwide and this home is right up there with the best of them, absolutely could not fault it and will definitely be back. Thank you Alistair and Alison for allowing us the pleasure of staying in your amazing home, I genuinely did not want to leave and cant remember a time when I felt more chilled out and at peace with the world- and that doesn't happen very often !

Yet another great week in Ardmair Bay House
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Ardmair Bay House and once again the situation and the house did not disappoint. 6 of us stayed and plenty of room for all and we even had sunshine to enjoy on the terrace. Highly recommended.
