I wasn't sure about staying here after reading some of the reviews. The decor is dated the shower wasn't great and some refurbishment wouldn't come amiss. BUT BUT BUT the bed was super comfy, my husband and son liked the pool, it was easy to walk into town and not far from the ferry terminal, the breakfast was good, the... More

Beautiful view, lovely staff but the hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment. Cleanliness is a lot to be desired, but this is in no way attributed to the work of the staff - the furniture etc needs replacing. The breakfast was adequate but I have to say the poached eggs were very good.

Booked as part of our Herefordshire to orkney and back again adventure. Very old fashioned but none the worse for it....ALL the staff were fab and couldn't do enough.....the pool is great....they even provide towels....plus hot tub and sauna....pillows rather hard but tis a minor thing. Would go back in a heartbeat. 😊

I stayed here for one night with my partner as part of a trip to Mull and Iona but it was not a pleasant experience. We booked quite late on and this was the only hotel left with spare rooms. I now see why! Hotel badly needs upgrading with basics like decoration, decent beds and showers. Unfortunately the staff didn't... More

Holiday was nice.hotel suitable for our needs. Breakfast was enjoyable each morning. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and happy to talk to day or night. The scenery around the hotel was outstanding . Assess to all amenities including ferries to Mull and trips to see the seals will come again so much more to see

Never, ever again will I stay in this hotel. Here's why.... 1. Tiny beds. I'm only 6 feet tall but had to push 2 beds together and sleep at a diagonal across them both to get any sleep. The mattresses were also filthy. 2. Urgently needs upgrading. Wallpaper peeling off walls, stains on walls and carpets. The whole hotel is... More

This hotel is in desperate need of renovation. Rooms and facilities are decrepit and it is way overpriced. Our room had a shower that did not work, the sink was rusty. The bed was rock hard. Our friends had a room above the boiler room and had a slow roast all night.

Good location right on the harbour. Swimming pool was enjoyable but hot tub not too hot and hard to enter for short person. Room dreary but was comfortable. Staff was very nice and gave me good advice on a walk away from the town. Breakfast was good and the view overlooking the water lovely. Easy walk either to town or... More
