Riverside Guest House
Ranked #8 of 46 Ullapool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2017

Rooms were very clean and well appointed. We saw the host only briefly to book in and pay. He told us best places to eat and gave us good directions for our next port of call but that was the only interaction we had with him. We were at the front of the building right over the front door so it was rather annoying to have doors opening and closing and people (sometimes heavy footed people or excited children) coming and going until quite late evening. Breakfast was good, great choice with a vegetarian breakfast offered although mine had a hair in it. Overall we didn't really stay long enough to have a strong opinion either way but it certainly wasn't the worst place I have stayed.

Room Tip: Don't have a room over the front door!

We'd highly recommend the Riverside to anyone going to Ullapool. The Host was very friendly and helpful, great tip on where to eat. The rooms were comfortable, quiet and well appointed. Everything was in great shape and seemed well looked after. The location is very good as it is only a few minutes walk from the main street and the ocean. Well worth the price and the breakfast was excellent with lots of options. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed one night in the riverside guest house. Room/ensuite very clean, no complaints , large comfortable lounge to relax in, breakfast very good too. Parking available right outside which was handy tho guest house short walk from town. Charlie is very helpful - recommended somewhere to eat which proved as good as he said and also recommended a scenic drive to our next stop off rather than the boring main road we would have chosen Thanks for the hospitality We would certainly stay here again

I stayed here as part of a tour of the Highlands, so this B&B was chosen for me, but I liked it a lot. Compared to the other two B&B's I stayed in (both in Edinburgh), I liked this the most of the three. The rooms are simple but well set up. Mine had a comfortable bed, a desk with a tea kettle, an ample nightstand, and a shelf area with some hangers. The bathroom was ensuite, and had a towel warmer.

The room was not fancy-looking; more like a generic hotel room, but frankly, I'd rather have a functional room than something higher-priced with lots of decorations. It was clean and well-arranged. Also, this place served a wonderful breakfast, with plenty of fresh fruit and cereal, plus hot food cooked to order. It had an extremely nice lounge area with comfy chairs, coffee tables, and glasses for wine or whisky (bring your own), which I really appreciated after the day of touring.

Ullapool is a small town but there are a few restaurants around which serve excellent food. I wish I'd had more time to walk around. Most of the two days I was here were spent exploring the amazing Highlands.

The manager or owner was very friendly. I'd choose this place again.

A fun yet unplanned trip to Ullapool left us looking for accommodation last-minute. One if the hotels in town, all booked, recommended we give the Riverside a call. We were lucky to grab their last room and stayed for two nights in a double.

The guest house is very clean, well maintained, with good internet. It is a short walk to the two main streets in Ullapool and located in a quiet part of town. The breakfast provided was delicious and the staff helpful throughout the stay. Expect to hear your neighbors in the adjoining rooms, which is pretty standard in guest houses with small rooms and was not problematic. If we could wish for one improvement, it would be more comfortable beds. The rest was perfect - we hope to be back in a Ullapool soon!
