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

highly recommended. Hospitality was great and our room was absolutely clean and comfortable. Price and quality, perfectly balanced and certainly not too expensive. I will absolutely stay here again next time. JD

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.

We spend three wonderful days in Tarbert (22.7. - 25.7.). Very welcoming and friendly proprietor, the room was comfortable and clean. The rich scotish breakfast was lovely. We would love to come back.

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

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
