We are a couple who booked Achilty Guest House for a weekend break Friday to Sunday. On arrival we were met by the owner manager Mwamba who is very friendly and welcoming. He showed us to our spacious ground floor room with large, walk in shower within the en suite. The room was very comfortable, cosy with heating on in the evening, piping hot water and memory foam bed which afforded us a great sleep. Lovely and peaceful, facing the garden at the rear of the hotel with a pretty decked area nearby to relax on. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruits, yoghurt, local eggs, different breads, cheeses and hams, cereals, fresh tea and coffee etc. Mwamba struck the right balance as the host, nearby and helpful if you needed anything and also discreet and unobtrusive at other times. We had a fabulous time cycling to Achilty Loch a couple of miles away and wild swimming within the fantastic scenery. Nearby Strathpeffer is 5 miles away and very pretty, also great for a cycle and stop for a drink and something to eat. The second day we took a road trip and drove to the sandy beach at Gairloch for more swimming and then the Fairy Pools at Skye for a final dunk in the sparkling water. The Achilty Guest House was perfect for us. The location was so great to go and explore the Highlands and enjoy cycling and swimming. Mwamba is very kind and does a great job running the hotel. We will return for more relaxation at the first opportunity!

This is not a hotel - it’s a guest house. It’s very basic, my room was large and at the front on the main road, noise wasn’t a problem. Cobwebs and spiders on the ceiling in my room. Expensive for what you get. The shared areas are dark, old and grubby. The manager was friendly and helpful.

The hotel is quite close to Rogie falls. It's situated in a quiet and serene place. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly. There's no kitchen but you'll get wifi and car park. I would recommend this place.

Well we arrived and Mwamba was right there to meet us, what a lovely gentleman he was, he first took my mother in law to her room which was at the back upstairs and was lovely and bright, and then showed us to ours, we were in a family room on the ground floor at the front and although on a road the noise didn’t disturb us at all, our room was lovely and light and roomy too. The beds were very comfortable and spotlessly clean and Mwaba cleaned daily too. We had a lovely continental breakfast, there was fresh fruit daily, yoghurts, cheese, cold meat, cereal, toast, croissants, pain au chocolate and filter coffee and a variety of teas to choose from. Mwamba was very quick to replenish anything that ran low and was very chatty, he even spoke a few languages so able to make all feel welcome. When chatting to him he offered to give us a lift to our wedding as he was going to go shopping that way which was very kind, he seems to be one of these people who will go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable in his establishment. Well worth the money we paid and would recommend to anyone going up that way who wanted a great value stay.

The guest house is on a very busy road though we had a room facing this & did not find it too noisy. Staff were very welcoming and polite. This hotel does need upgrading & input by someone who has a wealth of experience on housekeeping as some areas of the hotel certainly were unclean & I don’t think the bedrooms are vacuumed on a daily basis. The bedding was spotless. The breakfast may be inadequate for some people but we found it plentiful.
