“Hotel review”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

The food menu is monotonous as it rarely changes. The food is also mainly unexciting. Parking can be a problem when the hotel is busy with no obvious alternative. Service was cheerful.

The rooms are often noisy from neighbouring rooms i.e. poor insulation.

Check-in and out relied on the availability of bar or kitchen staff.

If you've seen the BBC children's TV show Balamory (shown most lunchtimes in the UK) you'll soon recognise this as Josie Jump's Yellow House but they don't make much of that claim to fame. The hotel is high above the harbour but you can't see the sea from the hotel. I paid extra for a superior room but it's difficult to know what was superior about it. Possibly larger than the others. Very small TV (but it did have a DVD player). Adequate sized room and bathroom, but a weird bath with a big dip in the centre (I suppose it makes it easier to stand when using the shower but I've never seen anything like it before). Breakfast is available (cooked to order but only between 8 and 9). Despite my room being next to the road, there was little noise disturbance as Tobermory is a very quiet place. Charming and picturesque, but not a lot to do when it is raining! The hotel is located up a steep hill about ten minutes walk from the ferry terminal and a bit further from the bus terminus. As someone else commented, it says it is family run but little sign of the owners and check out was quite disorganised relying on breakfast staff to break off from their other duties.

Situated high up on the hill over looking the beautiful Tobomory Bay, The Park Lodge is ideally situated for exploring this picturesque Town. The room was clean and spacious, the staff helpful and friendly. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal in the Bar and breakfast was spot on. We even played darts in the lovely atmosphere off the cosy bar. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for one night on tour round Scotland. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable. Didn't eat in hotel for eve meal but breakfast was good. Advertised as family run hotel we certainly didn't get to meet any of them.

Room Tip: Rooms not large so not to good for longer stay.

You are in the ferry pier only in 2 minutes by car. You have a lot of choice for restaurants at the Harbor. The hotel may propose a lunch package if early check-out. There are a lot of walks around the city.

Hi the stay at the Park Lodge was very pleasant, rooms were clean and of a reasonable size. Warm and friendly staff. Not the cheapest but worth it. Bar was very well stocked and reasonably priced. Good range of food and of a good quality.

Fiendly hotel in excellent location, with a short walk to the harbour. The facilities were great and being high up the views were impressive. We enjoyed our stay and would have liked to have stayed a few more nights.
