Hotel up on the hill overlooking the bay and pier where the ferry comes in. We had a beautiful room with a fantastic view of the bay. The 'Tobermory' room had a bay window with a couple chairs and table where you could sit, enjoy a tea/coffee/hot chocolate and watch the boats sail by. Highly recommended and enjoyable. Wish I...

A very pleasant hotel which could be fantastic. Very well situated with commanding views over Tobermory bay and beyond. Many small things need addressing. What is really inexcusable is paint that has been left far too long before decorating. Nearly all of the upper floor doors and stentions need urgent attention, it simply does not give a good feel factor... More

Stayed overnight for Dinner B&B There is no lift in this 3 story building so if you have a problem with stairs best find another. On entry the slightly bare ,tattered end hearth rug gives a misleading impression. There is a lovely guest lounge, beautiful breakfasting room and a very nice conservatory bar/restaurant serving great food and only let down... More

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel and found it to be a great location. Our room was comfortable and clean. The pipes were a bit noisy but the water was hot. The hotel is located directly above the harbor area of Tobermory with only a short walk up the hill from the main street. There was a bar/restaurant area... More

We stayed for 3 nights, all up very good. Its an old building and therefor the floor creaks and its a tad tired in places, but it is still very good. There are spectacular views from the dining areas as well as rooms facing the water. We stayed in the Tobermory suite, which had spectacular views from the large bay... More

Enjoyed a competitively-priced, four-day "Dinner, Bed & Breakfast" break in spring. Well-located with beautiful views, The Western Isles has the feel of a true, "Highland" hotel with very comfortable public areas, open fires and a sense of tradition. Our room was well appointed, clean and and met expectations. Service was pleasant, staff friendly and food excellent both at dinner and... More

The hotel and the room we stayed in exceeded our expectations. The building is lovely and our room was huge. We had fabulous views over the harbour and a lovely seating area in the room to look over the view. The bathroom was grand and the shower was hot and powerful. The beds were comfy and the children had fold... More

Have stay at this hotel with its wonderful location overlooking Tobermory on three previous occasions the last being in May 2007 prior to the current owners taking over. Our last visit was truly awful, this visit was greatly improved. The general fabric of the hotel is a bit tired, but was very clean and welcoming. The bedroom was comfortable with... More
