Nice big spacious bar where you can have your meal or dinning room. We went upstairs to our room and it was very quaint and roomy, the bathroom as spacious and clean. Shops...

The royal hotel is all about the wonderful views from the front of the hotel. Given that the weather was dark and rainy we didn't see it at its best. The room was at good size and you could step onto the balcony, weather permitting It is not a good idea to put a TV onto the wall in hotels...

The Royal Hotel is centrally located. Of course Ullapool is not very big and everything is within walking distance. Staff was great and had free wifi in the rooms. Many rooms had a view of the bay and the beach was right across the street.
