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.

Have stayed at Southcliffe B&B one night on the way to Isle of Islay. The owner has given us a warm welcome. Spacious room, comfortable and clean. Have got a good Scotish Breakfast. A good place to stay.

Spent 1 night on the 1st July 2014 and very pleased with the quality of this B&B and the welcome from Mike & Margaret. Our room was well kitted out, clean & fresh. Breakfast was excellent. It's always good to be advised where the fire exits are located, as we were. This shows a bit more attention to detail and... More

We recently stayed here for one night and found it excellent. The proprietor was welcoming and friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. The following morning we had a lovely breakfast, with choices of cereals, fruit juices, porridge and a good selection of cooked choices. Also offered was a platter of fresh fruit, which I opted for (as well as... More

We stayed one night before walking the Kintyre Way and as most others say this is a good well run B&B. Very clean and reasonably spacious rooms. A good choice of breakfast was offered and enjoyed. Only disappointment was the shower which kept running hot then cold, but no one else has mentioned this it might just be a one... More

We were on our way to Islay and have found this wonderful B&B as stop between. The rooms were very clean and had large bathrooms. It is located away from the main road. But it is easy to walk to the Harbour / centre and only a few minutes to drive to the ferry to Islay. The breakfast was great... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Southcliffe and have already booked again for next year when we are back in Tarbert! Our room was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and the beds lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was great with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and a cooked option of your choice. The location is absolutely spot on... More

I should start by saying that I only give 5 star reviews to restaurants/hotels that are perfect on every level. Southcliffe certainly wasn't too far off the mark though. The good: Greeted by a welcoming host and shown to our room. Good size with a lovely view over Tarbert. Fully stocked tea and coffee facilities. Nice bathroom, all very clean.... More
