About Us

Tanja & Sonia took over Kylesku Hotel in 2009 with a vision for a relaxed, welcoming restaurant in the northwest Highlands, specialising in fresh, ultra-local, seasonal food using the best ingredients. The historic hotel now has a team of up to 25 dedicated professionals who have helped us to win numerous hospitality and restaurant awards and (more importantly!) create the special guest experience here at Kylesku Hotel.

Langoustine tower at Kylesku Hotel restaurant
We are very well known for our locally caught seafood, especially langoustines.

The fact that many guests return year after year from far and wide for their “Kylesku fix” speaks volumes–rooms are booked up months ahead of the following season.

Opening times

Today (21st Mar-1st Jun)

We are currently closed until further notice, following governmental restrictions. Our hope is to reopen for the summer season this year, but it will depend on further governmental advice.

All cancellation fees for affected bookings will be waived, and we are in the process of contacting relevant guests.

We'll be making the most of this break, and be reopening as soon as possible. In the meantime, stay safe and watch out for isolation activity updates from our team.

Much love to all our lovely guests.
