Had a room with a great view over the harbour. Clean, modern, well-equipped and comfortable bed. Excellent restaurant with good range of dishes using local produce especially seafood. Historic pudding.

Ferry cancelled so we had an unplanned stay. It turn into a little gem of a visit and was almost glad the ferry was cancelled. Food and accommodation was excellent and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Based upon this we are now planning another night or two to repeat the experience.

I visited this hotel in August 2015 and found all the staff to be very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and had a great view. The food was excellent with loads of fresh fish to enjoy!! The hotel is ideally situated close to the Port of Kennacraig for a short trip to Islay and Jura. Will... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while in the area for a wedding. We decided to stay here as it was in the town itself, the wedding we were attending was in the nearby Stonefield castle. We had a room over looking the harbour which was wonderful, the room is very clean and modern, homemade shortbread in the room and fresh... More

So I was definitely not expecting a lot from a hotel in the middle of a little town in order to catch a ferry to Islay the next morning. But WOW!!! the outside of the building is nice, but you don't expect a modern, clean and comfortable hotel. We arrived and heading on inside. No one was at the check-in... More

The room was compact but comfortable. Free wifi. The hotel team were great and the service in the evening was excellent. Good selection on the evening menu. The meal was superb I would recommend the seafood. Good comprehensive breakfast. 10 mins from Kennacraig for the CalMac ferry. Good location on the Quay. Free parking in the front.

I stayed here over the Tarbert Fair weekend and can't recommend it enough. From the moment we walked in the door to we left the staff could not have been better. I was told it had been refurbished around 5 years ago but it was so clean and tidy that it looked as it if had just been done in... More
