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

We, myself, husband, daughter and son-in-law recently had an overnight at The Moorings. We are no strangers to Tarbert but this was our first visit to Andrew's establishment. Why did we leave it so long? Andrew, our stay was first class - five star didn't come close. So clean, so comfortable and so quirky. We loved it. The breakfast was... More

We have just returned from a couple of days in Tarbert, Loch Fyne where we had the pleasure of staying at The Moorings. This has to be the friendliest, cleanest B&B we have ever stayed in. We've stayed in four star hotels which didn't even come close to the standards Andrew provides. We had the Double room which has the... More

My hubby and I ended up staying here for one night a couple of weeks ago when the Ferry to Islay was cancelled due to the weather on the Sunday afternoon. At a loss to know where we could stay, I called in at the Tourist Information in Tarbert, and the assistant was promptly on the phone to Andrew and... More
