    Not a lot, apart from the location. But with a view from the room onto a flat roof, if it was far from ideal.

    Very basic facilities. Food was very expensive. Breakfast was served in a different hotel although only a very short distance away. No heating in the bathroom, which was very cold. I will not be re- booking this accommodation in future.

    V close to ferry

    No reply to my email request. I booked a night as my ferry from Ullapool to Stornoway was 50/50 to be cancelled due to the storm. When the ferry did sail at the last minute unexpectedly and I didn’t need to stay at the Ferry Boat I emailed to see if they would waive the £60 cost. They didn’t reply - and didn’t waive this. I understand the cost was not refundable but thought they might make an exception given the unusual weather/ circumstances.

    Seaview from our bedroom window was fabulous. Very friendly staff in the bar and the food was excellent. Room was clean and plenty hot water.

    A few of the common areas could do with a bit of redecoration.
