The only negative point of this establishment is the fairly steep,10 minute walk back from the seafront and action. Everything else was superb. Friendly and informative hosts, wonderful Scottish breakfasts, immaculately clean, would certainly revisit if back on Mull.

We have been to literally hundreds of B&Bs over the last 10 years and this would rate in the top 3. Lovingly restored by the hosts the house overlooks the harbor and is well appointed in every way. The breakfast is superb, the afternoon tea creative and the welcome very warm.

Stayed here with friend overnight during whistle-stop visit to Mull. Possibly the nicest accommodation I have ever stayed in. Beautiful house with stunning views, within easy reach of Tobermory centre. Every detail was thoughtfully and carefully presented whilst being really comfortable and unpretentious. Textiles, art, food and toiletries locally sourced and of highest standard. Tea in library real treat. Breakfast... More

We had a wonderful two night stay at Strongarbh House. It's in a great quiet location a short uphill walk from Tobermory waterfront with its shops and restaurants. There's plenty of room to park on the driveway. The house itself is to die for - gorgeous period architecture enhanced by minimalist decor and attention to detail. It is a house... More

Beautiful house, tastefully decorated and hosts for which nothing is too much trouble. Just back from a weekend in Tobermory, lucky to have found such a lovely b&b. 4 poster bed, massive bathroom, and felt like a bit of luxury. Complimentary afternoon tea, quality breakfast, stunning views over Tobermory and delightful rooms make this a must. 5 minutes walk from... More

What a great find this was! We stayed here for 3 nights and in two rooms and everything was perfect. The welcome, the afternoon tea, the rooms and the breakfast. Jane and Adrian do a fantastic job of offering a great stay but giving you your own space at the same time. The rooms were warm and welcoming, fresh, very... More

Just the sort of place we like, only four rooms, attention to detail excellent, helpful and friendly hosts, fab breakfasts. We stayed for 2 nights in room 3 with a garden view. Large room with tea and coffee making facilities, large bathroom with good quality toiletries, towels and bathrobes. Wish we'd stayed longer. Would definitely recommend it.

Tea and cake when you arrive, candles by the door in the evening, library full of books, great view and you choose your breakfast the night before. This is an old house, but beautifully done up with a fitting modern interior decor and you are truly made welcome. Room for our bikes in the boiler house, and if you want... More

Adrian & Jane couldn't make you more welcome at Strongbarbh House. It's been beautifully renovated and the rooms are very comfortable, the house has stunning views across the bay (not all bedrooms do though!) and they have carefully thought about every detail. The breakfast was just perfect. The setting is so peaceful and is 5 mins from Tobermory harbour on... More
