We have just returned from our second trip to Rockvale and once again we have had an excellent holiday. No-one could ask for a better place to stay. Alison has obviously worked hard to make this the perfect guest house. Everything is spotless with quality fittings everywhere. Alison is also very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the island. There is... More

Cycling holiday to Tiree and stayed at Rockvale for 2 nights wish it had been longer. Everything is to a very high standard from the toiletries to the bed linen. Breakfast would be a reason to stay longer so you could try everything. Had really bad weather one day but sitting relaxing, reading in the lounge made up for the... More

This guest house is the finest anyone could wish for. It is owned by Alison and Neill and the attention to detail is so obvious. The house is extremely well- furnished and spotlessly clean. There is an extensive breakfast menu with a variety of home-made preserves and Alison is more than happy to cater for all tastesThe bedrooms were very... More

Alison has thought of everything to make this a first class bed and breakfast - spotlessly clean, tasteful furnishing and decoration, great breakfast. There were also lots of little extra touches such as the home-baking in our room which all added up to this being one of the best bed and breakfasts we've stayed in. We had a great welcome... More

For being on such a remote, outlying island this guesthouse has all the modern conveniences: high speed internet, gleaming, spotless bathroom as good as any Hilton, first class appointments throughout, etc. A lot of effort and expense were put into renovating what was probably an old farm house into a shiny new boutique hotel. The central location makes it convenient... More

Surpassed all expectations, great room, friendly owner, superb breakfast! ...Probably the best breakfast I've ever had! Could not have been more helpful in giving advice on the island, and making it really good relaxing break. Thanks for a great stay
