My girlfriend and I spent last weekend on the Isle of Mull at the Carnaburg in Tobermory. Both Sandra and owner were very welcoming and helpful. The owner recommended and booked us in for dinner at the West Isle hotel which was a great recommendation. The view from our room was across the Tobermory Harbour. The facilities in our room... More

Just spent the weekend at The Carnaburg and I have no complaints at all, very clean and welcoming, excellent breakfast and found Valerie to be very pleasant and an excellent host. The rooms are a little small but this is an old house on a Scottish Island, all has to be viewed in context, I would have no hesitation in... More

Sandra, the receptionist is outstanding and by far the best thing about this place. Otherwise forget it. The owner is rude and disinterested. The rooms are small and not very tastefully decorated. Plumbing is antiquated. Noise from other rooms is a problem. What really freaked me was the amount of mildew on my doona. I will never return.

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
