It was a disaster, they simply take advantage that Ullapool is one of the place you almost "have to spend a night" during, your Highland trip. The staff was not really friendly, the rate way too high, and my room was a joke (i have seen bigger shoe boxes). Stay at one of the B&B, MUCH better!

Good all round Hotel, whilst not fancy, very pleasant and welcoming. Food was good and plentiful, all in all a very enjoyable stay. Prices were reasonable and good value all round. Would certainly stay there again. Our room had beautiful view of the surrounding hills and the Stornoway Ferry.

Whilst travelling around Scotland, we called in at Ullapool and asked in the Caledonian if we could book for one night. The staff were extremely polite and we were given a room, with breakfast and evening meal for a very reasonable price. The room was comfortable although on the second floor with no lift, however, as it was only one...

The room was average and good enough to enjoy a night. There was live music at the hotel and that was nice but the accommodations were nothing to write home about. Standard hotel that was conveniently located near the water.

This is a good hotel, ideal for an overnight stay. I found the staff were polite and the breakfast was good. There is a good bar, and Ullapool has several other pubs and restaurants worth a visit. We were able to park on the road right outside. For the price I paid, yes I would stay again.

We were with a large group. 80 people. Hotel coped well at meal times. Food was good but vegetables over cooked. There was no option re times of meals. 7.30 breakfast. 7.30 dinner. The rooms were fine but the sound proofing between them was poor. However it was exceptionally good value.

You can tell when you walk into this hotel, that it was a grand place in its hey day. Large spacious entrance foyer and lounge areas. Dining room the size of a ball room and neat window alcoves. But now, it is just old and very very tired. The first thing you notice is the very dirty carpets as you...
