We spent two nights in the Southcliffe B&B in Tarbert and we totally loved it. Mike and Margaret have been excellent hosts, welcoming and kind, helping us out with any request we may have had, from recommending local places to sightseeing spots and even printing our boarding passes when we couldn't find a place that did so in town.

We stayed here on our way to Islay. We arrived to find that we had been upgraded to a very spacious family room, and the price discounted too -perfect! Beds and linens were very comfortable - there was even a cockerel to wake us up - and the bathroom was clean and spacious. Two minor gripes: the toilet is a... More

We spent the night here before heading out to the islands. Mike gave us a warm welcome. The room we had was spotlessly clean, recently renovated with a lovely bathroom. The B&B is ideally situated for walking into Tarbert from dinner. The breakfast was excellent, Mike was happy to organise an early one for us so that we could eat... More

We spent the night here before catching the ferry to Islay, booking via laterooms. We found it unfriendly and unwelcoming, and would not stay here in future. We arrived around 9pm (having phoned ahead telling the owner when to expect us); the welcome we received made it apparent that our "late" arrival had caused significant annoyance. We were also told... More

The rooms are very recently remodeled and nice. The proprieters kept to themselves pretty much which made it less fun... and the grounds are non-existent. They did give us a small refund since we had to leave early for the ferry and would miss breakfast....( we have stayed other places where they offer to make you something earlier which is... More

We stayed here overnight on the way to catch the Islay ferry as it is convenient for the bus to Kennacraig, and would definitely recommend it. The room was clean and comfortable, the owners friendly and very helpful, and the cooked breakfast was delicious.
