We stayed here for 2 nights in September as part of a Rabbies tour. It's in a great position, easy to walk to the centre of this small town and all the pubs/restaurants. The owner is cheerful, friendly and helpful and the breakfast was absolutely excellent - by far and away the best on our tour. Our room was dated... More

This is an excellent Bed and Breakfast place. It has a very nice location, quiet but a short walk from the main streets of Ullapool; equally, it is very easy to walk from there up the hill behind the town for wonderful views over Loch Broom. The staff are friendly and helpful; I reported a non-functioning bedight and it was... More

We stayed at the Riverside Guest House for two nights and were simple impressed. The lounge area of the bed and breakfast provided books and boardgames with comfortable sofa seating. Our bedroom had a double bed, tv, bathroom, and a wardrobe. The water pressure was quite low and the tv was small and placed in an awkward position (top corner... More

This is a very comfortable and friendly guest house. The room was spacious and well appointed, though the shower water pressure could have been greater. The freshly home cooked breakfast was first class. I had a most enjoyable week here and can highly recommend it. Note that it does not serve evening meals and is not licensed, but there is... More

RIverside is a great place to stay in Ullapool. It's only a short walk down to the water and many shops and restaurants. The staff is lovely and helpful and the rooms are clean. There's a cozy lounge downstairs and the breakfast was great.

Stayed for one night in early October as part of a Motorcycle Trip. I have used the Riverside many times in the last twenty years or so, although it is about four years since my last visit. This place was always of a good standard but appears to have been well refurbished since my last visit. The location is great... More

I had a wonderful stay in this quest house for 2 nights. Very friendly staff, very good breakfast and I could go walking about the beautiful riverside path and all along the coast. It was such a good experience and I will go back any time, if possible.

This is the place to stay if you visit Ullapool. A very warm welcome and also very helpful recommending places to eat. Room and bathroom were spotless. Nice choice at breakfast. Would definitely stay again if in Ullapool.

My wife and I stayed at the Riverside Guest House having arrived on the ferry from Stornaway. Our room was comfortable and very clean. My only criticism (a minor one) was that the water pressure on the shower was poor. We walked down to the harbour which is only 5-10 minutes away. Breakfast was excellent.

“The quieter floor is upstairs only because there are two levels. The main level rooms would be noisiest.”
  • From the bed and side tables, this is the wardrobe and to the left is the bathroom.
