“Just perfect!”

Really lovely few days at the hotel. Great food – perfect for long days outside; very welcoming; hugely comfy beds; abundant (very) hot water. Just perfect. Liz and her team have done a wonderful job – you couldn’t fail to enjoy your time here.

“Absolutely delighted!”

I recently visited the hotel as part of a larger group and was absolutely delighted with the measures put in place around Covid as well as with the food and room. The new manageress could not have been more accommodating and I will be visiting again.

“Lulled to sleep by the sound of the Oykel River”

I know the Oykel Bridge Hotel well and so was interested to see how they had organised themselves to cope with the COVID rules. I shouldn’t have worried. The manager, Liz has created a environment which follows the new regulations but does so quietly that you hardly notice the changes. The food was the best I’ve ever known the hotel to serve which is saying something. The rooms are clean and comfortable and one is lulled to sleep by the sound of the Oykel River.

I have travelled all over the world, and stayed in thousands of hotels, but I can’t think of one for which I have such a very special affection. Incidentally, for those reading the 2 star reviews, there has been a change of personnel since those were written.

“We will be back!”

We have stayed At the Oykel Bridge for many years, after a couple of management changes, they now have Liz and her excellent team looking after the hotel. We were looking forward to going back and despite COVID we were really pleased with our story. The food is back to its best and the team put customer service at the top of their priorities.
We will be back again!

“A great stopover for the Cape Wrath Trail”

Friendly staff and highland hospitality. Loved the home-cooking, the oxtail stew a favourite, a big breakfast sets you up for a hard days walking. The bothy accommodation puts many Bed and Breakfasts to shame. Loved sharing stories with the locals and fishing clientele in the lounge bar. A great stopover for my Cape Wrath Trail.
