Just a quick one night trip but nonetheless we were happy we picked the Anchor. We requested early check-in, not a problem. We were greeted by a lovely receptionist who checked us in and told us all the required details regarding breakfast. Our room was small but perfectly formed; warm, quiet and comfy bed. Ensuite was spotless and the shower... More

Stayed here for two nights whilst visiting my husband who is rowing around the UK. It was lovely to have a little luxury. The rooms we stayed in were great - clean and modern and the view was well worth the extra pennies. Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful when I discovered I had a flat tyre, providing details... More

I love this hotel! It's central position in tarbert means you can have a walk round the harbour and further a field of you want to pass the time away. The rooms are very comfortable and the restaurant is excellent and the staff are always friendly.

Well-appointed, clean, comfortable, nicely decorated rooms. Both of ours overlooked the harbour which was quite lovely. Breakfast was included and had lots of options, cold and cooked, all very good. Excellent location for walking around the town and exploring craft shops, restaurants, etc. Would certainly return.

Come on Tripadvisor this is the number one place to stay in Tarbert. Small improvements from last year makes this hotel even better. That's what matters the fine detail and the Anchor Hotel has gone that extra mile. This is our favourite hotel and we will be returning here next year again. The staff are excellent so is the food...

Excellent staff who could not do enough to ensure you enjoyed your stay. Great breakfasts coupled with interesting Dinner menu. Fantastic base to explore Argyll and Islands. Manager runs a good team and Rose behind the bar is sure to help you in your choice of a good malt.

Wonderful position with small but well furnished and modern rooms. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff but spoilt by a number of little but irritating issues eg only full fat milk, no natural yogurt, no real beer, toast appearing without asking what sort, no fresh tea just out of a communal pot etc. Quite expensive as well.

We booked into this hotel, as it was the nearest venue to the 10k run which was taking place 30 miles away in Campbell. It is located in a very picturesque port with art galleries dotted around. The first thing to note is that this is a small hotel and therefore does not have lifts to take you to the... More

We only stayed 1 night but can thoroughly recommend this to anyone. The hotel was very clean and tidy, with excellent taste. Staff were outstanding and very keen to please. Following a small issue with 1 meal, staff went out of their way to remedy the situation, and did. The lady in charge was particularly good. The food was very... More
