This was my second time staying in Tarbert, but unfortunately this was just a fleeting visit. I arrived at 8pm after a long drive from Norfolk to a fantastic welcome from Alistair who immediately made me feel right at home. The building is beautifully decorated and my room was spotless with high quality furnishings and fittings. The bed was comfortable,... More

Very warm welcome, warm cosy rooms, even a bathrobe for your use. Excellent breakfast choice. There was a lovely lounge for guests use with binoculars to look at the spectacular scenery and lots of board games. Looking forward to returning and I would throughly recommend.

A really nicely furnished, clean, comfortable B&B, run by a true professional! Food was excellent too. Little touches like water and sweets in the rooms make it more friendly. Ample parking nearby on the harbour.

Second visit to Tarbert in last month and so glad to have chosen to stay here. This will be my first choice should I return. I normally choose hotels but staying at Knap House has made me change my thinking. This was the most relaxing comfortable stay. Everywhere was spotless. The decor was tasteful and welcoming. My room had a... More

I stayed here a few weeks ago just for a fleeting business visit. I arrived at 8pm on a Sunday which was no trouble for Alastair (owner)who pointed me in the direction of some local eateries. Room was very clean, good shower and an excellent breakfast and chat with Alastair. Certainly recommended.

My partner Keith and I stayed here last week. Good location, very clean and comfortable rooms and a tasty cooked breakfast, in the morning. The owner was very welcoming. We will certainly be returning, in the future and would thoroughly recommend, to others. Look out for the elephants! We dined out at The Anchorage restaurant and had an excellent meal... More

This was our first visit to Tarbert and we were completely won over with the beautiful surroundings and our choice of accommodation for the week. Knap House is perfectly situated with stunning views over the harbour. Our room was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable and there is also a lovely Lounge for relaxing in with a great choice of books/games... More

We stayed for one night but loved Knap House. Immaculately clean, nicely furnished and lots of lovely touches which made it very special. In a great location, excellent breakfast and very friendly and helpful proprietor.

My husband found Knap House on his phone while on the road. We really lucked out as someone had cancelled their reservation earlier in the day. Lovely spot if you can get a room! I believe all rooms have a view of the harbor. Alister, the owner, was very helpful at giving us tips on our next days travels. He... More
