Me and my partner booked to stay at the Anchor Hotel for 2 days over Hogmanay and had a fantastic time. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. Our room was warm and very modern with a fantastic view of the harbour. The food was to die for! I'm not much of a seafood lover to be honest but... More

A cozy and welcoming hotel for a December break. My partner and I booked for B&B but the food on our first night was so good that we ate there on each of our three evenings. The chef, manager and staff were all very friendy and happy to share their culinary and local knowledge. It's worth taking the short walk... More

The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable and staff were very helpful and friendly. The room we had was a bit small particularly the bathroom but I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to others.

We booked a 2 night weekend stay at this small, friendly hotel. We paid an extra £10 for a sea-view room - well worth it as the hotel overlooks the pretty harbour of Tarbert. The hotel has been completely refurbished since our last stay several years ago and is now finished to a high standard. The restaurant serves excellent food... More

We stayed here at the end of September for 2 nights and although we have stayed in Tarbert many times this is the first time we have stayed at the Anchor and it won't be the last. The hotel is small and very friendly and you are made to feel at home the minute you arrive. We stayed in the... More

Sometimes you spend time at a place and feel like it's meant to be. My husband and myself spent 2 nights at The Anchor Hotel in Tarbert. We arrived a little late as we'd got a bit mixed up with directions and ended up in Tarbet, Loch Lomond! We were so happy to finally get there and were warmly welcomed... More

Title: Flawlessly fabulous. We arrived back at the Anchor Hotel after our excellent stay over the Music Festival and although there was more of a buzz about the place then, our trip this time was exactly what we were looking for. Right from the start we were welcomed by the lovely Louise who couldn't be more helpful. She's a credit... More
