Perfect stay after a long cycle from Ullapool. Our Bikes locked up in a shed which was handy. Very welcoming hosts. Breakfast in the morning excellent at a time to suit ourselves. . Really comfortable bed and lovely views from room. Would stay again. The Deli in the Square was good for a beer and a meal.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We try to be welcoming to all guests, in these trying times service really does matter - with all the virus safety measure in place making a stay different service is the one thing we have control of. Happy that you enjoyed your breakfasts and found our beds comfortable. The Deli is a good place for a meal and beer though we too have a good range of beers in our bar lounge.

Crystal House feels like a home away from home. I enjoyed an extended stay in September, and felt incredibly well taken care of during my entire stay. Delicious breakfasts. Comfortable furnishings. Exceptionally warm, generous, and helpful hosts. The garden and grounds are beautiful. The commitment to environmental friendliness is apparent in every way. The entire property exudes an energy of kindness. The location is also excellent and is near plenty of breathtaking hiking trails. I look forward to returning!

Every room is themed after a crystal, your key has that Crystal attached to it. The decor is tasteful, with nature theme photography and wood furniture. But I just woke up from nap here and the beds are amazing. Fluff, but firm, the duvet is big enough for the bed and a person, the sheet are immaculate but do not have the aroma of detergent or dryer sheets. The place is immaculately clean, but I can't smell cleaning products. When I woke from my nap I can see out the window a view of the garden, the adjacent historic buildings and hillside. Quite pleased!

Thank you Heather for your review and for noticing one of our unique selling points.We live our personal lives with the intention of causing the least harm to the biosphere of planet Earth. This was an ethos that we naturally took in business when we started Crystal House we use naturally unfragranced laundry products so that is it is clean but does not have any artificial floral smells ( and all the VOCs and chemical smog that goes along with them). For house cleaning we use Enjo products the micro fibres they have only require water to leave a hygienically clean surface, the cloths themselves are taken back by Enjo for recycling the product has reached the end of its life. A special wash bag prevents any micro plastics from leaching into the environment. This aspect of our accommodation often goes unnoticed.

Central location and on-site parking. Very comfortable place to stay, a little frayed round the edges but the good hosts more than make up for this and the rooms are comfortable, ours had a nice view of the glen. Very helpful owner. We found this a very nice place to stay, excellent location and a modest rate.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We know we are not corporate slick and do not try to be we always do our best to be good hosts and present a friendly comfortable place to stay and we're happy that you had a positive experience. With the exception of modest charges for extra beds (£10) and pets(£5) the prices you see are what you pay with no hidden fees for cleaning etc. We think we are spoilt by our location too and enjoy the views across the Strath and down the Glen. Happy travels and hope to see you again.

I stayed here with my parents for one night. We were tourists in this area so we got some good recommendations from the hotel staff and locals. The owner and his partner are super friendly. Its a very quiet peaceful hotel and town. Overall cleanliness in the room and common area is good! A bit outdated but everything works. The bed was comfortable. We had a lovely Indian dinner here as well, with a wonderful explanation of the spicy Indian pickles and peppers! Overall good stay with a beautiful view over the area! was a bit pricey, but we were there in the middle of summer holiday season..

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and that you recognised that we have a high standard of cleanliness. Most of our guest are like you and appreciate the sense of peace and calm that our establishment is imbued with. The Mauritian food is our speciality so we're happy you enjoyed it.
