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. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We had chosen a non Loch view room which was clean and spacious. There was an odd...

Enjoyed our 2 night stay. Hotel has a great view of the harbour. The hotel is clean and staff were very polite and helpful. It has a lovely breakfast room. The bedroom was a bit dated but adequate. Good newly refurbished bathroom in room.

It was clean and well maintained. Good sized rooms with modern bathing facilities. No elevators. Management staff were less than gracious and...

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.

I recently stayed here as part of a classic car weekend. I have never come across more dismal staff in any hotel I have stayed in. The general manager ( Neil ) ignored us when we asked to be served at the bar and was later seen drinking from a bottle of beer while standing behind the bar (hardly a...
