Like a backdrop to "Gone with the Wind", the WIH looms over Tobermory bay from a clifftop, it,s "ye olde worlde" charm oozes outside and in, a pessimist would say its in need of a full revamp, an optimist would say its matured well...I,m an optimist and as such it was a privilege to stay there for 3 nights in...

A lot of money for what you get... The bathroom is noisy and a bit dirty, you could find some mold. The bar closes at 22, even if you're still drinking one. The staff is nice, breakfast was good, sheets were clean

This hotel was a very lucky find. We travelled to the Isle of Mull via ferry and had planned to stay in a B&B. When several of the B&Bs were not available, we tried the Western Isles Hotel and they happened to have rooms available, and we were very glad! The rooms were spacious. Our room had a bay window...

I agree with what a number of other reviewers have said about his hotel... A lovely building in a stunning position but tired decor and offhand service makes this only average for me. When we arrived we immediately noticed that the outside of the hotel is not in the best condition - lots of rusty ironwork etc. Inside was reasonably... More

We spent a couple of nights in this hotel. The location is really great, the hotel is on the top of the hill just above the stunning Tobermory bay and very close to the village centre. It probably dates back to end of the 19th century and it must have been grand at that time. However, now it would need... More

We have been to Mull 4 or 5 times and stayed at the Western Isle about 3 or 4 of those times. We always travel to Mull using the Corran Ferry, a 5min crossing, just North of Balachullish then lovely drive through Morven to Lochaline for a 20 min crossing to Fishnish on Mull. This is a more reliable ferry... More

The Western Isles Hotel has a stunning location with spectacular views over Tobermorey. However, the hotel is old and in need of refurbishment. The paint and wallpaper are peeling in places. The bathroom was shabby. The place belongs to another time. Wifi reception is limited to only parts of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent. Bed was comfortable.

Had very relaxed morning in the conservatory, great views across Tobermory Bay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very handy for a drink after a round of golf at the nearby Tobermory Club. No problem parking at the hotel.
