Our stay at the Argyll was absolutely perfect for what we were expecting. The staff were very friendly, the pub food very good (particularly the curry night dinner we had when we arrived), the pub was a treat, our room was small, clean, everything was in perfect working order and the views over the harbor were lovely. Waking up to dawn over the harbor every morning was a great start to each day. The hotel itself may be a bit older, and an upgrade to the rooms would raise my review a star, but it is certainly on par for western Scotland small coastal hotels (at a similar price point), and is within the appropriate atmosphere. Someone commented about the stairs being dangerous, but that seemed a bit odd to us, unless one was elderly or physically handicapped. I would suggest using care on the stairs if it is an issue.
The location was ideal for exploring the Summer Isles. The first day we headed out to the Achiltibuie loop and the second day to the Drumber loop, stopping both days at the various sights, heading back to Ullapool in the afternoons for a snack and a pint at one of several walkable options nearby. Since we arrived before the season, having a town with open restaurants and a pub in the hotel was a nice end of day option.
Overall, a nice visit. The hotel is not five star, but it certainly has the friendliness, service and character that we enjoy.
