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 Toilets a bit outdated and could do with a revamp, shared with bar and restaurant area.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.

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
