We stayed for 2 nights but wish we could have stayed for longer. Staff were helpful and friendly. Yes, the hotel is an old property but for us this just added to its character. We would love to go back again. Thank you

Stayed in the hotel for one night. Right from the off the staff were very friendly and accommodating but the problems started to occur once we reached our room. The room was freezing and there was damp across most of the walls. The TV wouldn't work but the staff quickly solved that problem. There was only access to wi-fi in... More

Bedrooms were a bit tired and run down, certainly not the refurbished ones mentioned elsewhere. BUT. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food exceeded all expectations. Coal/wood fires were awesome. Lounge area very warm and welcoming

I stayed at the Western Isles with friends in December. From the moment we arrived, we felt very welcome, and all of the staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Our rooms were warm, clean and comfortable. Some have obviously been refurbished recently, and to a good standard. Rooms on the harbour and seaward sides have excellent views. I... More

What a Great experience, first time on Mull, great hotel stayed in The Glenlivet room, stunning, you could just live in the bathroom alone. Staff great, loved the conservatory, and the drawing room, with real fire where we could relax with a drink (or two) after a hard day walking. Dogs welcome everywhere, apart from breakfast, big plus point with... More

I couldn't believe a couple of the reviews I read here. I don't think these people were staying at the same place ! My stay was a joy. At reception we were greeted with a big smile and an open fire. My room was beautiful wallpapered with sea eagles. The food was delicious and next morning the views from breakfast... More

The Hotel building overlooks Tobermory Bay, high above the bay and has amazing views. The building itself is in need of maintenance investment, but that aside, we found that, without fail, the staff were helpful and charming. We had a beautiful and large bedroom, as requested, overlooking the Bay. It was spotlessly clean, large and warm. The Bistro served delicious... More

We decided last minute to do an overnight trip to the Isle of Mull instead of a day trip and headed to Tobermory with nothing booked. Lucky us the Western Isles Hotel had availability! We had a lovely room overlooking the bay. We also dined in the restaurant, which was lovely! I couldn't recommend this lovely old manor more for... More

Ah, The Western Isles Hotel—so much promise, so far to get to, and so far to go. It sits high on a cliff overlooking what some have called the most beautiful boat harbor in Scotland, a claim I would not challenge. About 30 boats are moored there—everything from an antique steam yacht to a couple of small working fishing craft... More
