But, unfortunately the Reception Team are most unfriendly and unwelcoming and Hotel is in dire need of a refurb and upgrade. Ask for an upgrade to front facing room so that you can get the benefit of beautiful views.

Stayed here as I was working away for one night in the summer, on arrival I had a park on the main road as I don't think there is any parking. But with nice sea views the hotel had a nice feel to it. I checked in and got lost finding my room but once I got there I was... More

Was surprised to see hotel only 2star I think it deserves to be 3star.customer service ,food comfy beds and the view were excellent I think it's hard for old hotels to generate enough income to refurbish My only criticism is you have to fight your way thru the smokers to enter the hotel .....suggestion to owners make smoking area down...

We stayed for one night in this hotel so we could get an early ferry the following morning. On booking in we asked for 7am breakfast. We were told by receptionist that this was too early. When we protested we were told she would see if she could get a couple of croissants left out for us on a plate!... More

This hotel is desperately in need of refurbishment, and the rooms reflected this. However the bedroom was clean, and the bathroom functionable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the food very acceptable. Wifi was only available in the foyer, and had to be renewed every24 hrs - an odd system! The foyer also doubled as the bar/lounge area.... More

Always got a window table while there for our 3 nights as requested - and beautiful sunsets looking out to the Isle of Mull while... More

The hotel is run down and in dire need of refurbishment, such a shame as it's in a prime location overlooking the harbour, but having said that the staff and the food more than made up for that, they were friendly and the service they provided was second to none, the menu was varied too, at least four different choices...

We were on the 5th floor, as there was only a small lift it would be hard for those that are not fit to climb the stairs we were ok with that. The room was clean and the water was hot once again if you were a large person the shower cubicle doors were not very wide. The view was... More

Our stay here was very enjoyable and our room faced the bay. A most stunning view. The staff were very competent and friendly and the food very good and varied. Fresh locally caught fish on the menu. There is a lift from the ground floor up but it only holds two people at a time. Not a lot of entertainment... More
