This isn't really a review of the hotel - we didn't stay there. Were in the Bluebell Cottage just across from the ferry, but needed a quick dinner the night we arrived, so wandered into Tarbert. Looked at the menus at Starfish and Anchorage, but thought they were a bit pricey for a quick dinner. Spotted fish & chips at... More

The meals in the dining room very good, and our waitress was AMY what a lovely young lady, she always had a smile, very polite and attentive. The entertainment was... More

I was dreading staying here because of reviews and because it was so cheap in comparison to everybody else but honestly staff are so... More

We spent one night there and could not wait to get out. The mattress was so soft we could not sleep. In the middle of the night decided to call the night manager to move us. In the morning spoke to the manager who was rude - don't know why he is in he this business. We missed breakfast completely... More

I stayed here last year when working in the area - stayed for a weekend. The staff were very friendly, the hotel overlooks the beautiful harbour and my overall stay very pleasant. The only problem I had was I picked up food positioning whilst in the area, which made the trip home less than nice! Of an evening the bar... More

We were staying in the area and fortunately choose this hotel to have our Christmas dinner out. What a great choice and value for money it was. Food was amazing and fantastic value at the price. Staff were so friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back if we are in the area.

Food was excellent- scottish and hearty and very reasonably priced. As was the drinks. Service was first class. Staff went out their way to help and accommodate you. The breakfast girls were...

Great service and the food was great. I arrived on business for a one night stay. The rooms are badly needing done up and they are freezing although there is a small heater that does the job after an hour or so. The shower wasn't up to much either with poor pressure and wasn't that warm. I suppose you get... More

Food was good (not very good, but good) and the hotel had plenty of ambiance! We ate in the bar (restaurant was very quite) and it was fun to meet the locals (who were very friendly) though you do get the odd strange one!
