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

I am so glad I stayed at the Moorings during my stay in Tarbert. The host was amusing, polite and provided what I needed. To sweet dogs hung around in the house. Totally petable. The breakfast is served in a charming dining room with a harbor view. Real cosy. Really central. Great garden an entrance. One of a kind!! I... More

what a place - not for those who don't like the lovely dogs that live there or those who really hate scents. Small room but lovely. Not really suitable for small kids as there are 100s of ornaments that you don't want to damage. Excellent breakfast and a very caring host

I was driving tourists around and needed somewhere to stay for the night and Andrew warmly welcomed me in. The place is spotless (that includes his two bearded collies-I've never seen cleaner dogs!). It also has a lovely smell due to Andrew's huge collection of scented candles. The house is lovely and warm, welcoming and relaxing. I stayed in room... More

We very much enjoyed the nice room and the warm welcome by our friendly host. The breakfast was great as well. The interior design is well on the kitschy side, so this could be a problem for some people, but for us it was a great stay.

Andrew is a host like no other. The Moorings is a beautiful 100+ home full of beautiful art, wonderful treasures and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. With no idea what to expect, I was so pleasantly pleased with our stay. We had the family room overlooking Tarbert harbour - picture perfect. Andrew is a gracious host,... More

Was only there for one night with my parents, to visit my sister who has just started a job near by - even though we arrived late in the evening, Andrew, gave us the warmest of welcomes, and a wee guided tour of not only our rooms, but his new kitchen (Beautiful!) When i entered my room, the heater was... More

We were lucky to get the family room at the front of the house with spectacular views over the picturesque harbour which is what Tarbert is renowned for. Andrew's breakfast is a triumph - couldn't manage lunch! As a guest house, everything was immaculate and previous comments about the comfortable beds are spot on - didn't really want to get... More
