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

Stayed at Rockvale weekend of 14th Feb 2015. B&B Is stunning and Alison's attention to detail is amazing from little things like newspapers to put into wet boots/shoes or towels to dry yourself. Location to beach is brilliant and Alison gave us some handy hints on best beaches to visit. Breakfast was excellent and again attention to detail was very... More

I don't stay in B&B's but this was my birthday so I treated myself. I don't normally write reviews but its such a lovely place and Alison was so accomodating despite me being a pain. I have three dogs, one with politeness issues, Alison was understanding in keeping Toby (sorry if I've remembered it wrong) away. Its so rare to... More

Read all the others! All good comments are true! We stayed in room highlighted in title which was very well appointed and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Alison was charming. Go there if staying in Tiree! Tip if walking – preferred the west coast and then go to Caebhar Restaurant for evening meal. But get Ring and Ride back to... More

Stayed at The Rockvale Guest House for three nights in August 2014. From the moment we arrived, the service received by Alison was amazing. Felt right at home. It is exceptionally clean and modern with a friendly appeal. The conservatory was ideal for relaxing after sightseeing around the beautiful Island of Tiree. There is a varied choice of breakfast and... More

What a lovely gem of a B&B! We stayed for five nights and had a wonderful stay throughout. Alison attends to her business with an exceptional attention to detail, which includes furnishings, cleanliness and her wonderful breakfasts. The room: kingsize wooden bed with a firm mattress; an over-the-bath power shower; coffee-making facilities with home-made biscuits; free wifi (mobile reception problematic... More

An exceptional guest house. A modern building which is made over fully to the guest accommodation - the proprietors live in the house alongside. Very well run, exceptionally clean and tidy, lovely room with a super en suite, free wifi (which is useful as there is no mobile signal on the whole island!), lovely big breakfasts. A 2-minute stroll from... More

First stayed at Rockvale a few years ago with a group of friends, and cannot fault the place. The accommodation was spotless throughout, and provided the perfect setting for relaxing evenings after busy days enjoying the outdoor activities Tiree has to offer. Lovely having the conservatory in which to socialise and watch the sunset (really must return to see it... More

We were so pleased we chose to stay at the Rockvale. Our rooms were very warm and comfortable,with modern decor, and spotlessly clean. We were especially grateful for the warmth on returning one night during a storm with practically horizontal rain. Fortunately the rest of the time was warm and sunny. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts... More
