Spent one night here on March 8th. Had selected the hotel for its views over the bay. Was not disappointed. The view from my room was incredible. Although the hotel does not serve dinner, the manager was very accommodating and rustled up a small meal for me. She also offered to have poached haddock for me at breakfast and kept... More

Only drawback is small rooms. Don't do evening meals but good breakfast and very good bar area. Staff friendly and helpful. Clean Very picturesque little town. We went in winter but have been in summer and it's idyllic.

A lovely small hotel with attractive bar and lounge. Having read the positive reviews I was surprised that the exterior looked like in need of some work, and then noticed the scaffolding poles outside presumably going up shortly. Inside, it was very comfortable, warm and stylish. Staff were great too. I had a room on the second floor which is... More

Dear Neil, Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback, it is really important to us. We have replaced the mattress in you family room with a new one. The Contractors who re-slated our roof had promised it would be down before Christmas, weather and sea conditions conspired to delay this substantially but it is finally down... More

Superb location overlooking bay, Has new owners since autumn 2014 who are investing in the hotel and making excellent improvements to all areas. Whether in a newly refurbished or existing bedroom it is very clean, and there is nothing wrong with the old fixtures in the room still to be done, they just need updating, which is happening. We were... More

I spent two very enjoyable days with friends at The Tobermory Hotel over the New Year. This is a little gem of a hotel, tastefully decorated throughout with a splendid view onto Tobermory Bay. My room was very clean and comfortable and I slept very well on both nights. I can heartily recommend the full Scottish breakfast with the Stornoway... More

I had the pleasure of staying in the Tobermory Hotel over the New Year period. It's a lovely wee hotel which is perfectly positioned right on the harbour front. The new owners have carried out an extensive refurb with beautiful results - think "stylish Scots"! Breakfast is very tasty with locally sourced sausages etc. Staff are extremely warm and welcoming.... More

The Hotel has recently undergone a major refit by the new owners who have brought a bit of class to the establishment. From the entrance to the dining room is beautifully decorated in boutique colours which compliment the traditional scots exposed stone walls. There are warm friendly open fires and stoves kicking out heat and lovely smells. It is a... More

Lovely Boutique style hotel right on the main street with wonderful views over the bay. Room was lovely,staff very friendly. Breakfast was superb as was the view from the dining room. Cannot fault the hotel at all. WiFi was sporadic but that seems to be a problem all over the highlands. Would definitely return.

Dear Christine, Thanks so much for your review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The slow broadband speed is a problem throughout the Island at the moment, the good news is new cables have been laid - so we should have super fast internet in the very near future.
