We only had lunch in the bar this time but it was very average and a little disappointing - but as we are vegetarian the options are more limited. I guess that with the season over things slow down a bit.

Bearing in mind that this is supposed to be a top rated establishment to then find that baguettes include some remarkably tasteless cheese and some rather silly crisps this was rather disappointing. But they do have excellent draught beer. Helpful staff

Dear Observer2908 Thank you for taking the time to pass on your comments. I am sorry that you did not enjoy the sandwich (I presume you had in the bar) - Scottish Cheddar Cheese seems the obvious choice in this part of the world and up until your review we have had no negative reports. All the same we are... More

The civilised and elegant dining room and careful attention of the restaurant staff prepare you to enjoy a fantastic dining experience. It is not cheap but worth it as the freshness and sophistication of the food sings out. A memorable meal with a great view.

We were staying at the hotel and due to some unforeseen circumstances could not have dinner at the hotel but were directed to its pub. We received a nice welcome, enjoyed good local food and a fresh draught beer.

We arrived there after a very long journey, as there is only one single route to reach Achiltibuie, but once you are there you understand it is worthwhile! The menu of the restaurant is for fine dinner and high prices. But there were no table free so we had dinner in the pub, which was really good and a little... More
