Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We moved locally 2 years ago and can't believe we hadn't been here. We came down for lunch yesterday and everything was perfect. The small plates were excellent (especially squid & haddock scotch egg). Coffee and desserts were also such good quality. We'll definitely be back again soon!

A charming meandering hotel with a lovely community room with a self service bar. They accommodated our family of 3 by providing an extra bed for our room. Great views of Loch Broom. Breakfast service was among the best breakfasts we had in Scotland.

We had dinner there and chose the pork chop, mash, greens with cider gravy, ten out of ten for quality and quantity. Friendly staff offering great service. Desserts were only average but in saying that, we would certainly eat there again.

Generally good food, friendly waitresses etc. BUT ..... Why, oh why!! have you had to follow the hoards and invite SO many dogs into your restaurant ! Quite frankly, if I wanted to 'eat with dogs', I'd book a table at Battersea Dogs Home! Dogs are lovely creatures BUT in the right place - which, in my opinion, is NOT under / next to tables and even on dining chairs in a public restaurant. Some of the waitresses couldn't resist petting and fondling the dogs of various sizes and breeds. Did the staff wash their hands again before they picked up the next order from the kitchen, set cutlery on the tables or handed out the bread? We'll never know. Surely people can leave their dogs for an hour or so while they go out to dinner - or, perhaps having a take-away would be another option. Another suggestion - you could build a special 'kennelled' section next to the hotel so that the dogs could be safely housed while 'dinner was being served'.

This is a twofer review: the hotel, and the restaurant. We booked well in advance. The hotel is a funky wonder with a lived-in feel. Close to the waterfront but it was so windy that day/night that skipping a stroll and staying in was a no-brainer. Plus, this place is cozy and fun. Our 2nd-floor room was comfy and roomy, with a well-modernized bathroom. Clean, and quiet. Bonus: Around the corner, a large library/study/lounge, equally quiet (it’d be interesting to see what it’s like with music downstairs). And an Honesty Bar! You pour your drink and mark the sheet, to be paid for later. The restaurant: Good pub food and drinks, w/friendly service. We didn’t have the bad experiences other reviewers have reported. Breakfast was fresh and hearty. Bonus: A really nice bookstore, off to the side, with a curated collection that leans heavily Scottish. After hours, you pay for your books at the bar. I got a bit of ribbing from the bartender for buying a history of the Scottish Clearances by T.M. Devine. She’d recently earned her Ph.D. in Scottish history and said I’ll need to pick up a book on the topic by Jim Hunter (I believe) to balance out my understanding ☺️ Funny.

What a wonderful place! Lovely spacious and comfy bed with traditional furniture and super up to date bathroom. Amazing residents lounge with great views. Small kitchen and honesty bar. Even a chaise lounge (want one..) Breakfast was delicious served by lovely staff and all the crockery and cutlery are obviously carefully chosen - elegant and ah... We treated ourselves to dinner too and it was exactly that - a real treat. We will be back for more extra special time in the lovely location of Ullapool!

First time visiting in Ullapool and first time at restaurant with my mama for catching up with my family and large group on a Saturday evening. Had a nice wild mushroom risotto and New York Cheesecake. Everyone were satisfied with their food. Friendly staff. It has a bookshop in hotel.

The food has gone totally downhill since last year. Very small helpings at inflated prices. Food bland & poorly presented. Very limited seating at the bar & only a few high stools. Barman rushed off his feet while other staff chatting to each other.

We visited the Ceilidh Place tonight for dinner having been dining there for years. What a great shame that what was once a wee jewel in the crown of Scottish hospitality has become one of its biggest disgraces. Firstly, the shift manager was rude (not Aurelia - she was lovely and deeply apologetic for all that was so awful about our experience). The food was dreadful, over priced, and our son was severely sick having eaten there. The service was worse than the food - one of the waiters was trying, but the other found us to be a total inconvenience. We were out in the Annex - soulless and totally lacked atmosphere. When we asked to be moved, the very rude and uninterested manageress told us the restaurant was fully booked. The place was empty. The customer was an inconvenience. I cannot believe how dreadful the Ceilidh Place has become. My advice - don’t go. It is awful. We won’t go back. Scotland at its worst. We are so much better than this. Get your act together Ceilidh Place - you will go out of business if you continue like this.
