We had a lovely one night stay on a tour of the north west. The hotel is quiet and cosy. Our room was large, smart and comfortable. Huge bed, nice pillows. There’s a nice lounge area and quirky bar. The restaurant food was delicious and...well presented. I had a tasty hake dish and my husband enjoyed a well cooked pink duck. The breakfast was excellent. I had haddock and he had a huge full Scottish.More

We went here for an evening meal and drink. Was disappointed with the meal would have expected home cooked chips. Never mind the drink was good and the locals were friendly in the bar area. Usual from speaking to locals hot some good advice about...the area and places to visit. Be aware as you have to travel a good distance from this location to eat elsewhere.More

Tuesday night is not a party night in Altnaharra. The pub was empty, but we had a good pint at usual prices. The service was quick, but could have been more welcoming. Think they had other customers to attend in the restaurant.

This is a very isolated place with no competition for miles. The staff are good but you get the feeling they could do with a couple more members at least. Food was excellent and the chef conjures up some great dishes - especially the beef...which was as good as anything I have had. As several other reviewers have said the place needs a refurb - it has an antique heating system and rooms need brightening up. Just about value for money but marginal.More

We booked into the bunk rooms advertised as "LeJog Cabin"- It turns out that they are out the back of the hotel with a view of abandoned dishwashers & washing machines. The room had a v small fan heater in it - The shower room...had windows that didn't shut properly and was freezing - The shower was a tepid flow and nothing more. We went to the main bar area for a drink- The bar area was chilly and I asked for the fire to be lit as it was a cold wet miserable night to be told that it could not be lit as the smoke blows into the kitchen!! So many little things not done right add up to a night in hotel I would not recommend in its present state to fellow travellers or cyclistsMore

In the middle of nowhere unless you are hunting, fishing or shooting. The hotel is badly in need of refurbishment. Breakfast average.

Recently dined here whilst staying at The Hotel Whilst I can't complain about the Hotel or the quality of food, what spoiled the whole experience for me and my friends was the incredibly rude girl who checked us in upon arrival and also served our...table later that evening. Throughout our stay she was most unwelcoming, unhelpful, discourteous and downright bad mannered and rude. In all may years of travelling all over the world , this is probably the worst experience I've encountered and in my opinion, this girl shouldn't be allowed near front of house by the owners. Good hotel seriously let down by a very bad member of staffMore

We were 2/3 through a long highland drive, and were well ready for a cuppa. We went into the ghillies bar and rang the bell. Soon a friendly man appeared and suggested we would be more comfortable in the lounge, whomich is lovely and very...comfortable. Soon the tea arrived with two packets of walkers biscuits which soon disappeared. We asked if any scones or cake were available. The waitress soon returned saying both scones and strawberry and pineapple loaf could be had. We opted for the latter, which was superb. As was the plentiful supply of tea. The price was very reasonable so I left a tip which I was told would go into the mountain rescue collection. 10/10 from both of us.More
