Stayed 4 nights in June to be near family holidaying at Fidden. Couldn't improve on Staffa House for comfort and welcome, with local food and art skillfully presented. Very good value too. Near ferry to Iona and local shops.

Many thanks for your lovely review. We're delighted that you enjoyed the local art and craft work which is displayed throughout Staffa House - there are such talented artists living and working on Mull and Iona, and our aim is that guests experience for themselves the close connection between people and place during their stay with us. And yes, local... More

Had a lovely 3 night stay here, Gillian and Ali are a great team! Our room (Iona) was homey (in the best way), clean and comfortable, and at the end of each day we came back to find our beds made, pyjamas neatly folded and supplies of tea and hot chocolate replenished. As we travelled by bus they were accommodating... More

Lovely B&B with outstanding hosts. Gillian and Alison are special people. Gillian provides excellent information on places, timetables, advice of things to see, etc. She's wonderfully attentive; Alison remains busy preparing superb food. They both are focused on the beauty of their islands and keeping it that way through "green" living. They are people you want as friends. The house... More

This was our second visit to Staffa House and it was as wonderful as ever. A pot of tea on arrival was very welcome after cycling 37 miles from the ferry through lovely scenery. Our room was spacious with great views over to Iona and immaculate. Breakfast which we chose the night before from a great choice was eagerly anticipated... More

We arrived at Staffa House during early May to be greeted by Gillian who made us a pot of tea and a piece of Alison's scrumptous shortbread. Our bedroom was warm, exceptionally clean and had a great view over the sea. Alison's breakfasts were the highlight of the day and her home made jams, marmalade and bread were delicious. We... More

Staffa House is in a perfect location for visiting Mull, Iona and Staffa. It is clean, comfortable and the welcome is warm. The breakfast is wonderful and Gillian and Ali are excellent hosts and helpful with local information. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Staffa House. The location is amazing with so much to do if you like wildlife, walking, boat trips and visiting Iona. Gillian and Alli have the most peaceful and relaxing guest house I have ever experienced. Gillian is so welcoming and offers great advice and resources on days out and Alli provides the best...

Thank you so much for this lovely review. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us - you were wise to stay for six nights because there is indeed a great deal to see and do here, and taking things at a relaxed pace means that you can really unwind and benefit from the quieter pace of island life....

We stayed at Staffa House on 9th and 10th of September, 2014. From the moment we knocked on the door till we waved goodbye the service and hospitality was first class. The location is perfect and the accommodation, meals and amenities 4 star. My wife and I would return there again without question.

This B&B was one of the best we've stayed in. The hosts could not have been more helpful. All of our questions were answered and then some. It was amazing. It was a short walk to the Iona Ferry, which was great. We would not hesitate to return, in fact, I hope that will happen. This place is the best... More
