We stayed here by chance without reading any reviews. Looking back the reviews do seem quite harsh based on our stay. It's all been recently painted and the carpet is all new. The owner wasn't there, but the lady in charge of the place was very nice and friendly. She even made our breakfast an hour early so we could... More

We stayed here in August, and although it wasn't outstanding, it does seem as though some of the reviews on here are overly harsh. Yes, the walls on the top floor are paper thin, but apart from that, we were well looked after, and the room we stayed in was very nice, with a lovely view out over the harbour.... More

This B&B was in a wonderful position overlooking the harbour. The woman was helpful but cold and unfriendly. We had a double en suite. She charged us £85 but we didn't sleep all night. The walls were paper thin. We could hear the TV next door. Every time we put on the light in the bathroom the fan came on... More

I stayed here last week after arriving early morning. I was given a room which overlooked the harbour from 12 o clock and the weather was stunning. The lady sorted out my washing which was amazing as I was on tour on my motorbike all over Scotland. For the price I found it very homely and the staff friendly. Don't... More

Right in the centre of the quaint village of Tobermory, this address is extemely well located to discover the Isle of Mull. Breakfast was quite good. Main issues: rooms are really small and the address was missing a "soul" when we came. We haveńt seen Vivien and were expecting some more advice on the local restaurants and activities.

Good location but lousiest place : no shower available on my landing, paper-thin walls that give you this slightly unsettling impression, each time someone is entering some other room on the same landing, that they are actually entering YOUR room... But there is more to come : as already mentioned in other comments, the worse thing about Carnaburg Hotel is... More

We stayed here the end of July 2013. There was nowhere else with vacancies so we booked it. After seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor we were expecting the worse. On arrival we were put in the wrong room - a small double instead of the family room. The room was basic, but clean. There was a shared bathroom (no shower... More

We booked this B&B establishment on main street of Tobermory through the Scottish Tourist Board in Oban. Everything else was fully booked. We did not check Tripadvisor prior to arriving if we had we would not have come... Absolutely terrible place. The beds and the noises between rooms and from the room above was really disturbing. With the price level... More

After trying quite a number of hotels and bed and breakfasts which were all full I phoned this one which had vacancies and I see why,, doubt very much if anyone would return or recommend. It is only a 2 star establishment so didn't expect too much but as all others in area were full I had no other option.... More

I booked this b&b through visit Scotland as I was travelling with my elderly mother and wanted somewhere on the flat and central. Location wise this place is hard to beat a 3 minute walk from the bus stop and right on the main street next to various arts and crafts , gift shops and cafes, resturants etc. Views from... More
