We have recently returned from a very enjoyable stay at the hotel we spent 4 nights with bed, breakfast and evening meal. The food was of a good variety and plentiful. Dining room staff were very friendly and Diane, our waitress, was very pleasant. The room 131 was spacious but had no view and noisy from kitchen noise etc. The... More

Stayed in a room with a completely inadequate heater, was so cold I ended up sleeping in 3 layers of clothes and 2 pairs of socks. Couldn't find any night staff to beg a hot water bottle or spare duvet from. Worst night I have ever spent in a hotel anywhere.

Very basic hotel. The room was freezing when we arrived, and the guy at the desk clearly couldn't be bothered being there. Wifi is only available in the bar, as well, which is a pain. Apparently there are loads of nicer places to stay in town - will go somewhere else next time.

The Tarbert Hotel Staff are really excellent. They are friendly, helpful and approachable. The food was really very good with surprisingly good choices for vegetarians and the bar had a lovely ambience, being full of friendly locals and having a nice fire too. As a pub I want to give it an excellent rating. However, in reviewing it as an... More

Visited the Tarbert Hotel in September 2013. Great location overlooking the harbour. Great food with wide choice of sea food. Special offer was a two course lunch for £6.50 i.e. soup and main course or main course and sweet. Unbelievably good value.

I have just spent two nights at this Hotel along with three friends on a Caledonian Tour. Was a bit disappointed that both our twin rooms were at the back of the Hotel overlooking the car park, despite having requested a front facing room. However, that was our only complaint. Both our twin rooms were spacious and spotless. We had... More
