Myself and my boyfriend had been doing a drive around the highlands and we were really struggling to find anywhere to stay one night in Ullapool after a long day on the road. Everywhere was fully booked. We got the number for Essex cottage online and Margaret was so lovely, the price was great, the room was comfortable with en... More

A quaint little place with such a pleasant host. Margaret is a delight. The room was small, but comfortable and clean. The large window with a water view made it even more special. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful.

Ullapool is a lovely place to visit. We stayed there for two nights and rented a B&B room from lovely Margaret. It was good value for the money. The customer service was excellent and the breakfast was delicious. Also we had a lovely view from our window. It was a great find. Thank you for a lovely stay!

This is a great place to stay in Ullapool - great location, really comfortable room and a fantastic breakfast (best poached eggs ever ) ! We were only able to stay one night as it was fully booked but Margaret even helped find something else for us - true service! I can highly recommend a stay here.

Twin room was large, very well decorated, very clean, well equipped and stunning views from the front of the cottage. Breakfast was fantastic, the hosts are very... More

This B&B was truly nice. The lady running it is extremely nice and friendly. You will get a good cooked breakfast and a nice room with all facilities and views over the sea. The B&B is within a 5-10- minute walk from the pier and the shops and restaurants.

We stayed here in July (high season) and at 160 pounds for three nights it is still good value. I asked for non-sugar Muesli for breakfast and our hostess bought this especially for us which was nice. The room was a bit on the small side and full of all types of objects we did not need - on the... More
