Western Isles hotel is set in a great location within Tobermoray, looking over the water and the little town. Unfortunately, we were greeted by unfriendly and unhelpful reception staff both at check in and check out. We were made to feel as if we were an inconvenience to the receptionists which is really disappointing because did give us a bad... More

We were so looking forward to staying here as part of our tour of Scotland and the Isles. Fantastic location and beautiful views but sadly the decor is in dire need of attention. The staff had a difficult job as they were clearly embarrassed almost, of the fabric of the building and they had to face guests and field comments.... More

The hotel had amazing views out towards the sea and Tobemory. The staff were friendly especially one called Chip, who was always happy to help and very efficient. The breakfast was very nice and always served hot and fresh. The room we were in was very old fashioned and the bathroom was small which meant it was a squeeze. The... More

Well this was our 7th visit and we were a bit worried following the departure of Richard and Esplin who were as much a part of the western isles experience as the great view. We heard it was being run by a hotel group . We needn't have worried Michelle and hubby head chef Tom have things well in hand... More

We stayed for two nights. This was not a cheap option, and although pre warned by other reviews, I was not prepared for the poor state of this hotel. Our room had chips out the door and the bathroom paint was flaking and damp on the ceiling. The general feel was that of neglect. I'm Scottish so don't share the... More

This place has once been and could someday be an awesome hotel. Today, quite frankly, it's barely ok. The hotel is located on high hill above Tobermory village and has an exquisite five star scenery over the village and to the sea. There's a huge terrace that could be very nice in the sun, and some details from the golden... More

As a user of Tripadvisor, i did take a look at the reviews for this Hotel, So, I did go with an idea of what i was going to stay in...Yes, the public area/s decor is needing a facelift, its very tired looking, the rooms/bathrooms are in need of an upgrade too (but they are clean and tidy)....but oh, there...

Stunning location & has the ingredients to be a great hotel, unfortunately it is obvious no money has been invested in it for years. It is tired & old & well past it's best, prices are quite high & does not reflect the poor quality of accommodation. Bar shut early, so not able to buy drinks once the restaurant shut.... More

The Western Isles Hotel in Tobermory was certainly the best place for our quiet secret wedding evening meal. Views from the conservatory was prefect, our meals where delicious and all the staff was friendly and very helpful. Thank you for also letting our photographer Hannah Morris to take photos of us cutting our cake.
