The Western Isles was one of the hotels in which travelers in our group were put. Our experience, a total disaster. The Western Isles has a super location, with an excellent view. We were on the top floor (NO LIFTS!). Asked for instructions to work shower, and finally got after a long wait. Instructions should have been in the bathroom.... More

Beautiful sitting area overlooking the water. Room was perfect. Large comfortable king side bed. Staff was extremely pleasant, even had some complimentary bottled waters in the room. Conveniently located to the town, just a very short five minute walk down the hill. Location is ideal with overlooking the water and town.

Well apart from the view I would never recommend this place. Our room was disgusting with paint peeling off roof, ancient wallpaper hanging off and paint scratched off the door. Carpet was dirty. The only positive I can find is that the room was clean and a fantastic view. The place is ancient and needs some serious work. Even just... More

This hotel is in a lovely location overlooking the town and the water, with a nice view. It is in a grand old building. The staff in the restaurant are pleasant. When you are booking, there's a good change they will encourage you to get a dining reservation in. After having fallen for that trap the first night (they seem... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights in the Western Isles Hotel on the unbelievably beautiful Isle of Mull. The hotel is a wonderful old Victorian structure sited high on a hill above Tobermory with a fantastic view of the town, harbor and distant islands. The stay was comfortable and mostly good but yet disappointing because it could have been... More

Have been to tons of these old beauts in the US, and this as good as any Ive stayed in! Very helpful on getting around Mull and how to beat the buses at Iona. The rooms clean, warm... More

Stayed here last night and had a lovely time. The hotel is full of character with THE best views of Tobermory. The restaurant especially makes you feel like you are perched directly above the bay with uninterrupted views. The staff are friendly and polite, and the breakfast is very good with great coffee. If you are looking for the clinicity... More

We loved our visit at this quaint and charming old hotel! Everyone on staff was so nice and kind we felt a part of a family. We had a beautiful big room with spacious high ceilings and huge windows over-looking the port. Fun to spend time watching the busy comings and goings, including the Life-Boat crew practicing rescue manuvers! Our... More

As a Scot, I am embarrassed to think that this hotel may be perceived by visitors to our country as an example of Scottish hospitality. We stayed for 1 night(mercifully) on 2nd June. We were charged £110 for a dirty drab attic room with a tiny dormer window.Beside the room door was a dangerous broken electric socket, more worrying as... More
