This hotel has a great strategic for anyone touring the Kintyre , Knapdale and .Cowel Region on a budget. Situated right on the sheltered and pretty fishing village harbour with views from the Bar across to the busy Tarbert Marina, there is no better site for a relaxing break. Downsides are the lack of a Lift so access can be... More

We have just eaten at this hotel & what a find it is.The food was excellent. Plentiful, hot & extremely tasty. The service was friendly without being obsequious and, despite the fact that we ordered before 6pm (when evening service starts), our order was taken without hesitation. The menu caters for all tastes & ages and there is a good... More

We went here for the 2 course lunch meal menu. The ambiance is nice and the place is clean and well presented. We had the soup to start with which was nice and homemade with bread followed by the fish and chips which was also good. The value was excellent at £6.95 for the 2 course menu. They have a... More

We booked this hotel as there was a seafood festival on that weekend and Tarbert was busy - this was one of the few options available. We would not normally have chosen it, as it was right at the top end of our budget. We had a twin room with a harbour view. The room was a good size, clean... More

Good all round food and drink and nice friendly staff well worth a visit if in town. Toilets a bit outdated and could do with a revamp, shared with bar and restaurant area. Bit crowed with 3. Overall we were not there to look at toilets so gets a pass mark for the food and the service.

Glad I hadn't read previous reviews before booking as I wouldn't have booked. Booked a harbour view room for my mum and I one night only, very spacious room and great view of the harbour. Beds very clean and very comfortable and no issue with shower/ensuite. Admittedly Scottish summer at it's best so room was chilly and heater on wall... More

Can only describe this hotel as filthy! Room was a disgrace, filthy carpets, stains on bedding and towels, curtains hanging off, and a smell in the room which even an open window (which had to be propped open as it wouldn't stay open on its own) could not get rid of. Shower was pitiful with only a trickle of water,... 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.
