“Failte guesthouse a friendly place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Great place to stay overlooking the Harbour, well appointed rooms and very clean, good food and a very relaxing place to stay. We had room 6 at the top of the house with views over the Harbour and bay we really enjoyed our stay and will go back again. Great Holiday and nice place to stay.

Room Tip: We had room 6

This was a lovely small boarding house in the centre of Tobermory Bay. Parking directly outside was a welcome bonus. It is situated very central to all amenities in Tobermory. The room was compact clean and tidy. Breakfast was very good. Certainly worth a visit.

Room Tip: We did not have a view of the bay due to late booking. May be advisable to book early

We had to make late minute arrangements. All hotels in Tobermory were fully booked. Then I tried the B&B's and couldn't believe my luck to get accommodation in the Main Street. Main entrance was very welcoming, tidy and clean. Mhairi was going to show me the room, but when she went to the second floor I 'd mentioned, because of my husband's he wouldn't manage the climb another flight of stairs. She offered me a family room on the first floor with a lovely view over the bay. My luck again the room was available. The room was £ 10.00 dearer but well worth Again very roomy, clean and tidy. Bathroom had lovely tick fluffy towels. Only thing, because of being a family room, only shampoo and body wash provided for one person.. The flat screen TV was wall mounted on an awkward place. Not opposite the bed but beside.it To watch TV you have to turn your head and then the bedside light was blocking your view. Not really relaxing.
Breakfast was brilliant, cooked to perfection.

Room Tip: We've stayed in room 3.at the front with excellent harbour/bay view

The entranceway to the guest house is very warm and inviting. Mairi met us at the door and led us all the way up 2 (or 3) flights of stairs to our room in the attic. This room had a great view of the harbour, and had a double and single bed in it. The beds were comfortable and the room was spotless. The bathroom was quite large and the only problem that I had was that the towel warming rack, was close to the toilet seat and was VERY HOT, so be carefull you don't get burned, although there is a warning sign there. The breakfast room was bright and had a nice view of the harbour. The selection of food was one of the best that I have seen in Scotland. this place is a must, if you are in Tobermory, I would certainly return.

Room Tip: Ask for Harbour view room

Stay here for Beautiful Views,wonderful breakfasts and a warm Scottish welcome from Mairi and staff.We stayed in room 3 which was spotlessly clean with a view to die for. There are a wide choice of restaurants nearby, fish, steak,Chinese and Indian.The position of Failte is right in the middle of the Tobermory coloured houses so is very picturesque, would highly recommend this Guesthouse!

Not sure what to write so I will keep it short and sweet. My room was clean and tidy at the top of the house. Unfortunately I did not get a harbour view but this didn't matter as I was only using it as a base to travel from. It is ideally placed right on the waterfront in Tobermory, and I didn't have any trouble parking directly outside the property. The breakfast was superb with a choice of everything you could possibly want to set you up for a day in a lovely room overlooking the harbour.
Tobermory itself is a great place to stay with plenty of places to eat whatevver your budget.
I would recommend Failte Guesthouse to anybody looking for somewhere to stay in Tobermory, and I know that I will be returning in the near future.

We loved Failte Guesthouse. It would certainly be our pick in beautiful Tobermory- location, friendly, view. Mairi was very welcomIng and our Room 2/family room was great - clean, comfortable with lovely view. Location right on the habour was fantastic. Highly recommended by Aussies who love Scotland - and our children who love Ballamory!
