Stayed here for one night during a cycling trip. John kindly assisted us put our bikes in a secure storage area. Although we had not given an exact arrival time john and Kirsten were waiting on us. The rooms were immaculate with tea/coffee making facilities. The rooms were not en-suite but we had a private bathroom. The views of the... More

My husband booked up this Guest House online since we were catching the mid morning ferry to Islay. From the outset of booking Kirsten was more than helpful, from emailing us back to make sure that we had the correct Tarbert to suggesting we might wish to book a table in their restaurant (Scotts) since they are open to be...

This guest house has its own restaurant and is located right next to the harbour. It was easy to find and has parking right outside. The welcome from the owners was very warm and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast choices were advised the night before so a freshly cooked breakfast was ready at the time I requested. Although I... More

We stayed here, as many do, on our way to catch a ferry to Islay. The room was cute, comfy and clean. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating (as others have said, they don't live on site, but they made every effort to find out what time we would be arriving and be there to greet us - it...

On the plus side, the hotel is in an attractive location right on the harbor in Tarbert. Our room was nicely furnished and looked out over the harbor. The host was friendly and breakfast quite good (and served in time for us to catch the ferry to Islay.) On the minus side, we had to call a number and wait... More

Thank you for describing our property as quaint and atmospheric. It is a lovely harbour side property. If I may clarify a couple of points. This is a typical B&B and not a hotel so if we are in the village or out walking the number on the door is for the quest to call us if they arrive at... More

We stayed in a double ensuite with wifi. Room was cosey, comfortable, very clean with tea and coffee facilities and tv.There were lovely walks with views of Tarbert right beside b&b. Food was gorgeous and John and Kristin couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommend this establishment.

We stayed here for 3 nights while doing the first two stages of the Kintyre Way. John and Kristin were very friendly and helpful. We had two rooms Eigg and Gigha. Eigg is a twin at the front of the house, the bathroom and toilet are just across the landing. Don't let this put you off, we didn't find it... More

We had a twin room at the front and it had a good view of the harbour - and a more beautiful harbour would be hard to find. The room was smallish with a bathroom across the hall. But the price was good and the breakfast filling.

Fantastic B&B at a Fantastic price. The lady(I'm sorry I didn't ask your name) was very accommodating and helpful. The rooms were lovely and views over the harbour much appreciated. We ate in the restaurant and although there wasn't a huge choice, what we had was excellent. The choice of beers & whisky was also spot on. Highly recommended and... More
