This is a hotel with some history and what looks like a promising future! With lots of decorating and refurbishing going on, this is a busy place. The main entrance is impressive and warm, with the Hotel dog greeting us by the open fire, and friendly staff checking us in. The restaurant has stunning views over the harbor. The private... More

Big portion and reasonably priced. We had the steak and ale and a specially made omelette. The cranachan was the best we have had washed down with a nice bottle of merlot. Very nice indeed.

Log fires, good food, clean and spacious rooms and helpful staff. What more could you want. Oh ... A good selection of whiskies in the bar.

We had a two course meal that was so tasty and warm. The meat was exceptional soft - no chewy at all! It was very good value for money. All our compliments to the chef.

We stopped by whilst visiting Tobermory to get tea & scones in the conservatory after prior phone call to check. Best welcome given to our party of 4 was from the resident Collie Dog. Everyone else had their faces stuck in a VDU. Expected to pay a premium for the views etc. but the atmosphere spoiled by the poor service.

Stayed one night and wouldn't want to have stayed longer. The hotel enjoys a stunning location overlooking both Tobermory's beautiful harbour and out to sea. Our room was a good size, with a lovely harbour view and a large comfy bed. However, as we'd been lead to expect the hotel overall and our room is very tired, in need of... More

We stayed 2 nights, had comfortable rooms, lashings of hot water and great views across Tobermory Bay. Staff in the main were very good and the breakfasts were delicious. If you want a modern, chic, vibrant Hotel this is not the one. Worked great for us as we were out all day and frequented the excellent Restaurants in Tobermory at... More

Oldy world hotel in need of upgrading. Food could have been better. Just been bought over and will be completely refurbished we understand from the new owner. Rooms were fine and the staff friendly and helpful.

We have just returned from our holiday on the Isle of Mull. We had two evening meals and one lunch at the Western Isles restaurant. The food was excellent and we received very attentive service. Staff are obviously quality trained, polite and efficient but friendly too. The view from the restaurant cannot be beaten. Meals are taken in the conservatory... More

Enjoy stunning views over Tobermory Harbour or across the bay and out to the Sound of Mull.
