Stayed here for one night on a solo cycle trip. My room (no4) appears to be the small en suite double room advertised on the website. It really wouldn't pass muster as a double room and the en suite is unbelievably small. It was very clean and comfortable, if a little cramped. Inside, no surface has been left uncovered with...

Very sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with both your stay and your breakfast. Andrew prides himself on providing a relaxing comfortable stay. The room which you were booked into Room 4, although has a small double bed in, it is actually our Single Room and only suitable for one person due to its size. We are also very sorry... More

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.

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
