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.

This is a nice, clean, well located hotel, the staff are great and the views over the bay amazing. However, for the price, the decor is a little under par and the breakfast hit and miss. It needs updating or needs to offer lover prices. Overall it was a nice stay but a little overpriced.

we haven't been to the Isle of Mull before, so I consider we were fortunate to have picked the Western Isles Hotel. It has possibly the best location in Tobermory and the views over the bay are spectacular. The staff are really friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The room was dated but they acknowledge this and... More

Beatiful and breathtaking views and scenery from the hotel location. The internal decor, carpets and fittings are shabby and old. Definitely needs a refurb all round. Wifi only works near stairs and landing close to reception which is rubbish given the island has poor or no mobile reception. I had no mobile reception on three network. So the second time... More

The reception of the hotel has an olde worlde feel about it and there are a number of stags heads on the walls, We were... More

I stayed here for two nights nights on business. All staff are lovely and attentive when necessary. The room's decor and furnishings are a bit dated but functional and clean. The hairdryer was a proper travel one which is much better than those stupid ones you get in chains where you need to keep your finger on the button to... More

Stayed at this B&B in June of 2014. The staff was all really nice. The views were incredible. We were staying as a group of 40 and they were ready for us when we arrived. There was someone there just for taking up all of our luggage which was very helpful since we were staying on the third floor. The... More

The Conservatory Bar and Restaurant has an excellent panoramic view over the Sound of Mull and no doubt some of the rooms do as well, mine didn't. I am assuming that because it is still considered winter the hotel is not fully functional, well I hope thats the reason. We ate dinner in a smaller room at the front of... More

Dear Westcoastcol Thank you for your recent review. Yes, the hotel is a lot quieter in Jan & Feb for obvious reasons. The Conservatory bar is too cold to serve evening meals in the winter & the feedback we get from most guests say they prefer Kiloran with it's open fire to dine in. Sorry to hear that you did...

This is a remarkable hotel in its originality, hospitality and stunning location. We stayed as a family of 4 for one night and got to lovely rooms, one with a beautiful view over the bay. Had dinner in the hotels dining room, a very nice meal!
