This was my first and hopefully not the last visit to The Moorings B&B. I was made very welcome by a friendly and very efficient host, who has recently invested in what appears to be a top class refurbishment. Extremely comfortable bed in a room overlooking the harbour, with immaculate facilities and exceptionally good lighting as has been mentioned by... More

Our first stay at The Moorings, and hopefully not the last! Big room with superbly comfortable bed and unbeatable views to wake up to. Andrew and his lovely dogs were very welcoming. As a bonus, we were some of the first guests to enjoy the updated facilities here. Great place to relax and recover.

We've been to Tarbert many times but first stay at The Moorings. As many have said already Andrew is a great host, very welcoming and puts on a fantastic breakfast. Excellent room overlooking the castle. Definitely stay again

I have been staying at the Moorings for the last 2 years as I visit Tarbert at least once a month for 2-4 days at a time, and my most recent stay at the Moorings was the best ever! The new and improved Moorings is a site to behold. Andrew has spent a lot of time and effort in updating... More

I arrived in a busy Tarbert quite late and found "The Moorings" by chance. How fortunate for me! Andrew was a great friendly host and provided me with a super quiet upgraded room with a view of Tarbert castle! After a very restful night it was a delight to be given such a variety of choice for breakfast. It was... More

Visited here two years ago and couldn't believe The Moorings B&B could get any better. How wrong could I be! A very warm welcome awaited us as always from Andrew and his two dogs. And the moment you walk in,you can see he has invested a lot of time and money in upgrading his B&B with quality flooring,lighting and decor... More

Recently stayed for a third visit. Refurbished rooms and Andrew was the perfect host as usual (despite his extra work of 5 recently-arrived Bearded Collie pups.) The breakfasts have become even larger! Have these and you really don't need lunch. A wonderful, spotlessly clean, quirky venue. Anyone sensible will choose The Moorings first!

Having written a glowing review of The Moorings last year, I have just returned to be completely bowled over by the sumptuous extras Andrew has added to an already stunning b & b. Apart from enchancing the marble tiled entrance hall, LED lights are a fine safety feature. What else made me gasp? Well the touch mirrors, new showers, character... More

The Moorings has just had an extensive make-over. The rooms are immaculate with new LED lights up the stairs and fabulous bathrooms with new tiles and showers set off by beautiful decor highlighted by oak doors and very comfy beds. Really a boutique hotel, with the best rooms and breakfast in Tarbert. I visited with a friend taking 2 rooms... More
