Unfortunately, due to a booking error by Booking.com at another place, we ended up at this establishment. I will try to keep my comments unemotional. Stair carpet stained. Room grubby. Double room provided with one mug, very little sugar, dusty mirror; headboard; light bulbs. Faulty lighting in bathroom which they tried to fix twice to no avail so not a... More

This hotel is very well located, easy to do the Mull of Kintyre by car and north of Tarbert too. Our room was comfortable and clean, and small issues such as blown light globes and lack of hairdryer were fixed immediately. The breakfasts are lovely (try the porridge with honey and cream!) and the restaurant is the best in town... More

As a result of our numerous visits here over the last two years we booked for half of our wedding guests to stay at the Anchor Inn and we / they were not disappointed. All who stopped here were very complimentary about the quality and cleanliness of the rooms, condition of the hotel and the quality of the breakfast. We... More

Our second visit in under a year and we were given as warm a welcome as the last time. It's such a nice feeling when you visit a hotel and they treat you like one of the family. There is a new menu since our last visit and there is even more choice than before. It's nice that although it's... More

We would recommend the breakfast seriously we found it excellent. not the waitress however, not a smile or a thank you - just banged the coffee pot on the table. the room was well appointed, very good mattress, attention to detail was not there, lights not working for 4 days, oh and why are bath towels left on the bed?

We were greeted by... well, no-one actually. It took ages to find someone, notwithstanding I phoned the hotel whilst standing in Reception and we watched the phone while it rung. Our stay here felt entirely impersonal; if there was any management around, they kept their heads well down. That said, our clean, small bedroom with its delightful outlook was an... More

The drive took us a long time but it was through beautiful scenery. The staff were very welcoming and our room on the first floor had a fantastic view over the harbour. We ate each night in the hotels restaurant as the food was so good. Our stay was in March this year and we had mixed weather but it... More

Stayed one night while on business. Hotel looks like it has had a bit of money spent doing it up but found the room a bit dated. faced the back of the hotel so view on to council houses was not appealing. Shower room very small and had a problem with the shower in that it either was scalding hot... More
