We had never stayed on Mull before and had originally planned to rent a cottage. Thank goodness we didn't or we would have missed out on this fantastic hotel, the best country hotel we have ever stayed in. Everything about the place is perfect. A supurb location just of the shore of Loch Sribain, a beautiful garden which guests are encouraged to expolre, warm and welcoming staff, and in Laurence, a convivial host who strikes just the right balance between making you feel that you are a guest at a house party and at the same time giving you the feeling that the house is yours. Our room was not in the main house, but was just a few yards away. It was spacious and spotless with a large bathroom and had views down over the Loch. The bed was large and comfortable and the towels in the bathroom were also large and had that knack of seeming to dry you instantly. The food was fantastic with very substantial breakfasts with a wide choice. The evening started for us with a drink in one of the two comfortable lounges where new guests are introduced to the others by Laurence who was quite often dressed in his kilt. There was the opportunity to converse with the other guests and share experiences of the island which was great for us as virgin visitors. The dinner menu changes daily and the food was excellent with fresh ingredients and great cookery skill. The wine list was extensive and not expensive and after dinner there was the opportunity for a dram in the lounge with more conversation and repartee with the other guests. There are some beautiful walks from the house and for those interested in wild life a trip with Bryan Rains who runs "Wild about Mull" in Pennyghael is a must. We saw Otters, white tailed eagles, golden eagles amd much more on our day out with him. We stayed at Tiroran for 8 nights and can truly say that this was one of our best holiday experiences, in spite of the weather! Thanks Tiroran, Laurence and staff. We are just booking again for next year.
