We visited Scotland with another couple on a group tour of the main land and the Isle of Arran. We stopped at Tarbert, an adorable harbor town, on the way to the ferry for the Isle of Arran. We were given an hour for lunch, so we quickly had a find a place to eat, and stumbled across the Sea... More

We had two rooms across the hall for each other myself and hubby in one and the kids next door. We had a little trouble getting the heating working in the kids room but the lady on reception was helpful and installed a fan heater while fixing the radiator. Deco is lovely and the room had everything you would expect... More

Most probably the best boutique and chic hotel in this lovely harbour town. Rooms well decorated and restaurant feels smart and upmarket ( food good too). But we found the service a little clumsy and amateurish. E.g. First choice of wine was not available and handled badly. No good bye and thanks on checkout. That being said it would still... More

My husband and I stayed here in March for a weekend and had a fantastic time. The hotel is fabulous, food is excellent and the staff are so friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of booking it and we will definitely be back.

We stayed as part of a Groupon offer for Fri & Sat night and to be honest we weren't expecting too much. From booking to leaving we really enjoyed our stay. Food is obviously a major driving force in the Hotel and the kitchen staff are probably ahead of the waiting staff and housekeeping in terms of ability as the... More

We booked a table for 6 for an early birthday celebration. The table had been decorated with balloons and poppers which was a lovely touch. The service all night was professional and friendly, the team of waitresses really are a team, working well with each other, a massive compliment to the management and training by James and Louise. The food... More

This hotel is booked regularly by my company as everyone who stays here raves about it. This was the first time I have stayed here but hopefully not the last. Im looking forward to my next visit the fantastic views over the harbour and another amazing 'seafood platter' in the restaurant.
