Good value place to start the North Coast 500. No cooked breakfast but plenty of choice. Staff friendly & helpful. Complimentary soap shower gel shampoo & hairdryer. The only place nearby we could find for an evening meal was Coul House hotel

A comfortable, value place to stop for a night or two, conveniently on the A835 from Inverness to Ullswater (the North Coast 500 route). Our host was very friendly and helpful. Our room (10) was spacious and comfortable (there is also a guest lounge downstairs if required). The buffet breakfast was good, particularly the range of prepared fresh fruit.

After a long drive just what was needed for a good nights rest. Hotel does not have a restaurant but this takes nothing away from a pleasant stay. The owner was a really good friendy guy who makes you welcome and is very helpful. Breakfast was not a fry up but plenty there so you don't leave hungry! All in...

On a trip down memory lane we chose to book at Achilty B&B formerly an hotel with a reputation for excellent dinner dances back in the 1970`s. We booked through Booking.com and I followed up the confirmation with a phone call to the very helpful owner who ensured me we would have a ground floor room with disabled access shower....

My wife and I stayed for one night at The achilty guest house. We booked through Booking . com and it was clearly listed as a guest house so we did not expect a hotel as some of the reviewers did. I am totally amazed at some of the critisisms the proprieters have received. I do not find thier comments...

We were travelling back from the north west of Scotland and wanted somewhere to stay before we got to Inverness. The owner explained he'd taken over the hotel earlier this year and is in the process of refurbishing it. We had a ground floor room which is suitable for disabled visitors although we didn't need this! Yes, the furnishings are...

The budget room was a large comfortable room with en suite bathroom. According to the owner the reason he calls the room a budget room is because it faces the road. This was not an issue as after 7pm there was hardly any traffic. We both slept very well.

It would appear that the Achilty is a shadow of its former self. It doesn’t operate as a hotel anymore which was a disappointment to us arriving at 7pm and hoping for a relaxing night eating in. Achility is now a bed and breakfast venue only so the “hotel” title is something of a misnomer. We received a warm welcome...

With reference to review. Firstly the television is 19 inches. If the guest required a larger television he could have asked at the time. I tend not to overcook breakfasts. The observation could have been made at the time. All our guests are asked at the time if their meal is all right , I cannot remedy the problem after...

“Rooms to rear are quieter”
mgt_mack, 6 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Rooms on the back of the Hotel will be quieter as we were on the front and next to the main road. Not noisy at night though.”
Robcoll2, 17 Aug 2013 | Read review
“If they have rooms which are not to the front of the building, then go for one of these to avoid the road noise.”
