A very warm welcome greeted us and we were shown to our immaculately kept bedrooms. The rooms contained lots of well thought out extras like sherry, toiletries etc. Our hosts were very helpful and offered us a power point to charge our electric vehicle. The breakfast table was well presented and the breakfast was one of the best we have... More

This was my second stay here and it was excellent , just like the first time. I was greeted warmly by Simon, who with his charming wife Tess was running the guest house on behalf of the owners. I chose to stay in the same room, (2) as previously which, whilst not having a loch view, is very large and... More

Lovely, clean B&B in a great location, a few minutes walk into the centre of Ullapool. Plenty of parking space. Advised of a great restaurant (The Arch) for evening meal. Beautiful loch view from the 'pagoda' at the end of the garden. Breakfast room overlooks the loch for stunning breakfast views. Lovely breakfast prepared to order.

On the outskirts of Ullapool, but in easy walking distance to the village. Quiet place, great view out of the room and breakfast-room on to Loch Broom. Lovely walk on the shore to the harbour. Bright bedroom and modern bathroom. Splendid hospitality and breakfast, We´ll come back for sure.

This place was booked as part of a local tour - and I can see perfectly why. The service and genuine interest the owners had during our short 1-night stay was excellent. Spacious rooms, great WiFi and amazing breakfast (I miss tattie scones) and morning view of the bay! Other services included use of the drying rooms and they were... More

We had a stop over stay whilst driving the NC500. Very welcoming hosts and a comfortable room, just a short walk from the centre of town. Good choice of breakfast menu, all cooked fresh along with a good selection of cereals and fruit, it certainly set you up for the day ahead. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

Great place to put your head down for the night - comfortable and clean. Rooms are not exactly spacious but they are sufficient, if not slightly spartan. Very friendly and welcoming reception from the owner who is extremely helpful and accommodating. What amazing, uninterrupted views over Loch Broom from the breakfast room and the front garden.... simply stunning. Great, hearty... More
