I was hiking and island hopping across the Western Isles during the summer and whilst in Harris and the pleasure of spending two very comfortable and trouble-free nights at Avalon, I traveled solo and was booked into a very spacious and impeccably furnished room with ensuite facilities (ROOM 4 I think). One could not fault the accommodation which easily surpassed... More

We stayed only one night at Avalon, I wish it could have been more but we were at the end of our holiday. Avalon is situated right on the loch and the views are stunning. Arlene was a very welcome host who not only left homemade fruit cake in our room and aperitifs in the sitting room for everyone but... More

As mentioned by other reviewers, this place has a very impersonal, motel like feel. The twin room we booked was tiny. On the plus side there is free wi-fi and the breakfast was ok. Also, it is reasonably conveniently placed and the views from the lounge are good. You can do a lot better in this area so I wouldn't... More

We stayed for one night on our island hopping trip and certainly recommend Avalon. Arlene is very welcoming and the room (2) had a lovely view of the lock. The cake and liqueurs were a nice touch and breakfast was excellent. Not many places to eat in Tarbert, but the Isle of Harris Inn was pleasant with a varied menu.

Stayed there for four nights. Two of the days were rather windy, cold and rainy, which meant Arlene's guests pretty much hung around the lovely combination breakfast room/lounge. The room has huge windows and views of a loch and mts. The other guests happened to be fun-loving people, BUT I believe that Avalon attracts this calibre of traveler! Each day,... More

Small hotel style accommodation, with very clean rooms and comfortable bedrooms and decent bathrooms. Great breakfast in the perfect lounge overlooking the Loch. Free liqueurs a nice touch too! Worth asking for room on back as quieter away from road which can have surprising amounts if traffic on early ferry mornings.

The Avalon is a 5 star B&B, a beautifully kept home that is spotless and fresh and welcoming We came here last week and stayed for three nights. We were warmly welcomed by Arlene and our room, number 3, was super, great en- suite and a fabulous view. The complimentary cake and whisky was a lovely touch. The breakfasts were... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said. This B&B is just perfect. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the cake left in the room each day is delicious and Arlene is the perfect host. And then there are the breakfasts! I think Arlene must have had the most varied buffet table we have ever seen in a B&B.... More

Avalon was a very well run guesthouse. Situated on the outskirts of Tarbert, it was convenient for visiting all parts of Harris. We had a warm welcome from our Hostess, Arlene. The room was a good size with a reasonable ensuite. There was homemade cake on the courtesy tray (delicious!). The beds were comfortable. In the morning breakfast was a... More
