My one night stay in this guesthouse was very comfortable. The owner was friendly, suggested me a nice place where to eat and gave me a few info on the town. My single room was complete with everything I needed and was quiet enough to have a good night sleep. Breakfast was continental buffet style plus some freshly cooked options....

A sudden change of plans saw my friend and I cancel a night of wild camping near Kylesku and find a room for the night in Ullapool. We were welcomed to the Riverside with a smile and a chat, taking on board recommendations for both somewhere to eat (The Arch Inn) and somewhere to walk (Stac Pollaidh). Both recommendations were...

We stayed here for 2 nights in September as part of a Rabbies tour. It's in a great position, easy to walk to the centre of this small town and all the pubs/restaurants. The owner is cheerful, friendly and helpful and the breakfast was absolutely excellent - by far and away the best on our tour. Our room was dated...

This is an excellent Bed and Breakfast place. It has a very nice location, quiet but a short walk from the main streets of Ullapool; equally, it is very easy to walk from there up the hill behind the town for wonderful views over Loch Broom. The staff are friendly and helpful; I reported a non-functioning bedight and it was...

We stayed at the Riverside Guest House for two nights and were simple impressed. The lounge area of the bed and breakfast provided books and boardgames with comfortable sofa seating. Our bedroom had a double bed, tv, bathroom, and a wardrobe. The water pressure was quite low and the tv was small and placed in an awkward position (top corner...

This is a very comfortable and friendly guest house. The room was spacious and well appointed, though the shower water pressure could have been greater. The freshly home cooked breakfast was first class. I had a most enjoyable week here and can highly recommend it. Note that it does not serve evening meals and is not licensed, but there is...

RIverside is a great place to stay in Ullapool. It's only a short walk down to the water and many shops and restaurants. The staff is lovely and helpful and the rooms are clean. There's a cozy lounge downstairs and the breakfast was great.

“The quieter floor is upstairs only because there are two levels. The main level rooms would be noisiest.”
  • From the bed and side tables, this is the wardrobe and to the left is the bathroom.
