This was our second visit for Sunday lunch. On our first vist we had an excellent meal in lovely surroundings, white tablecloths etc.. We had a beautiful Sunday roast, but that was a couple of years ago. Well now it is just a pub lunch, no tablecloths and an uninspiring menu. There is no special board during the day. We...

The hotel was lovely and excellent views. The food was great except I chose lobster as a treat and it was overcooked but not being a lobster expert didn't know enough to complain and at £25 it was steep so needed. All in all a great place to stay.

Stayed for one night enroute to John O’Groats. Couldn't have been better. Best food on our trip and fantastic room with a view. Tremendous atmosphere with live music and dancing till the early hours. .

Stayed here with a bunch of fellow cyclists on the way to John O'Groats. Superb food, very comfortable accommodation and a brilliant fizzing atmosphere. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. The breakfast was a triumph as well.

We only stayed at The Arch Inn for one night and arrived early evening after a days travelling. Room was clean, beds comfortable, good wifi, shower and bathroom was a bit small though. The hotel is very well located, just a short walk along the sea front from the ferry terminal. We had an evening meal and breakfast in the...

The Arch Inn is one of the few hotels in the Scottish Highlands to offer a single ensuite room at a reasonable price. It's also in a really convenient location, just a short walk along the sea front from the ferry terminal. A cooked Scottish breakfast sends you off well prepared for hiking, boat trips or other outdoor activities. Dinner...

Our family had a great meal and dinner after our roundtrip in Speyside, the girls just LOVED the sticky toffee pudding. The fish and wine was excellent too. The rooms are nicely done up, we had a great stay! Ullapool is cool!

From check-in to check-out (and everything in between) our stay at the Arch Inn couldn't have been better. After a very long drive we were warmly greeted at the bar of this traditional old inn and shown to our room. The waterside view room was small but perfectly formed and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a...
