Crammed in like chickens in this tiny place that is barley big enough for 15 people let alone 25 we were back to back with others and had to squeeze past when we went to the bathroom. It's understandable that they make you pay before you eat as other wise you wouldn't pay. Soup; can only be described as SPICY...

Visited the beautiful Ullapool on a particularly foul and rainy day. After a very scenic drive along the A835 which was stunning, we fancied a cup of tea. Ullapool in the sun must be a lovely place however it was chucking it down. We found the Ferry Boat Inn or FBI, love it! Inside is warm with a real fire...

We had an evening meal only here, so cannot comment on the accommodation. It was a lovely snug and a good find. Staff were really friendly. There was a log fire burning and it felt cosy. The food we had was amazing, top notch! Would definitely return here again for a meal and drinks.

Had a lovely meal here whilst on a tour of Northern Scotland. The food was good but the staff where a little run off their feet so it was quite hard to order and pay. However the ambience and food quality made up for it.

No Wifi coverage in upper rooms. last guests socks and...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in the space of a few months and I doubt we'll be staying again. I don't feel it's value for money as the rooms whilst adequate are dire need of an upgrade and maintenence. Things like the bath panel being water damaged, mould around the bath, patches where wall paper has been...

Perfect location to explore Ullapool. Walking distance to everything. Good pub downstairs, and rooms upstairs are clean and comfortable. Just what you would expect from pub accommodation. Really felt comfortable, clean and secure.
