The staff are so welcoming and do what they can to help you. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. What a breakfast you get as well. WOW as much as you want buffet and the cooked breakfast really sets you up for the day.

We were here as part of a Rabbies tour. Stayed one night. Decent size room. Bathroom needs updating but had a functioning fan. We stayed on the second floor (no elevator) but had a nice balcony. Walking distance to restaurants. Breakfast was good. Service was good.

We came up to Ullapool after realising that the weather was going to be good for climbing some Munro's, it was a fairly last minute trip. We found the Royal Hotel after a quick google search.

Room and bed really comfortable. Choice of room overlooking the harbour (slightly more expensive) if you want it - but not necessary. En suite had been recently refurbished to a good standard. Beautiful selection for breakfast. Short walk to harbour and village.
