We got married at Duart Castle and stayed at the Carnaburg Guest House for the week. Even before we arrived (and unknown to us!), Linda and Rob helped our friends with sourcing a present on the island to give to us on the day, and throughout our stay were so helpful and kind. They really did go out of their... More

This is a very good value for money destination on the Isle of Mull in the largest urban area of the Island. Service was excellent including breakfast. Free wifi is always a plus.Only issues were that the rooms are dated and tired. The furniture is from a bygone age and the TVs are very cheap LCD options with remote controls... More

When seeing your review my first thoughts were of mistaken identity, as all of Carnaburg Guest House have been decorated since we took over in October 2014, there are new beds, mattresses, curtains, lighting, televisions, linen in all of the rooms and new showers in most of the rooms, all of the rooms except Room 2 have new furniture in,...

When I arrived, Linda offered me the option of a double room at no extra cost to me. I didn't spend much time there though, but for the short time I was speaking to the hosts, I felt very welcome. Nice breakfast too

Excellent location and our room had a wonderful view. The room itself was in the attic and although the room appeared spacious, the low ceiling and dormer windows meant head bumping was a common occurrence. Also the shower room was very awkward to use.

Thank you for your review of our Guest House, I'm sorry that you were not entirely happy with your room on the top floor, if we had known we would have attempted to offer you a different room that may have been more suitable. I hope that everything else about your stay with us was good. Kind Regards Linda More

Stayed here for my first visit to Tobermory. Had a very comfortable visit in a good sized room with a good sized bed and en suite. The guest house is ideally located on the main street of Tobermory overlooking the bay, and just seconds from the whisky distillery which is also well worth a visit. Also took a day trip... More

My family and I stayed in the Carnaburg for 3 nights for the second time and it was fantastic! My husband and I had a beautiful view of the harbour from our room and the bed was massive!

We stayed here for 3 nights in late May. The best thing about this B&B is the superb location in Tobermory, and wonderful view from the bedroom over the harbour. We would stay here again for this reason. It is right on the harbour side with plenty of choice of places to eat and easy parking. We found our en-suit... More

I had a one night stay in Tobermory as part of a 3 day visit to Mull. Plenty to do in Tobermory; visit Aros Park and pier, walk along harbour front, various paths and steps to upper level of village, local craft shops to browse and the distillery shop. I was in room 1, a comfortable large single. The room... More

We stayed for 3 nights and were well looked after by Linda. Tobermory is a great Base for exploring the island. Linda cooked up hearty and tasty breakfasts. We were in room 4. The harbour view was beautiful. The room is clean, and the bed really comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay with Linda again.

Could not fault this charming Guest House and we had a warm welcome from Linda whose hubby Rob is a great chef! Our room overlooked the pretty bay in a most tranquil setting. Make sure you book this accommodation if you wish to explore the Isle of Mull!
