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

This B and B is one of the most comfortable and friendly/homely I have experienced for a very long time at a reasonable rate. Gillian was welcoming, explained all and showed us around, gave us tea upon arrival and advised us where to eat and where to find shops ect. The room and bathroom was very tidy, clean and offer...

Can't recommend this B&B highly enough. Knew we were on to a winner before we even arrived. Gillian was so helpful prior to our visit, answering all our travel queries via e-mail and giving us great hints and tips about getting the most out of our trip to the island.This was the first time we had visited. She is a... More

I have reviewed this B and B before but by returning I think it is clear that I think it is good and remains so! Gillian is the perfect host without being overpowering. Ali is a great cook and provides a good choice of breakfast. It is worth staying a few days as the menu usually changes each day. Anyway... More

Mary and I had a most wonderful stay at Staffa House B&B in Fionnphort. We had been to the Isle of Mull before, visited a few of its standing stones (the megaliths are what bring us to Scotland in the first place... well, that and the beauty and ancestry), and walked the sacred ground of Iona. This trip we had... More

Staffa House was the second of six great B&Bs we (that's him, me and my cousin) stayed in during an eight night Scotland tour. And the unanimous vote (from the three of us) was that it was simply the best of them all. (They all ranged from good to excellent. And all were chosen with help from Trip Advisor reviews).... More

I can't emphasise enough how much we loved our stay at Staffa House. Gillian was the most welcoming and friendly of all our hosts in Scotland - and that means something, because almost everyone is incredibly nice there! She took care of our wet hiking gear (thank you again!), recommended a dinner place to us, was always available for a... More
