Nice host, spotless room, and lovely cooked breakfast. Plenty of free parking across the street. Double bed was a bit uncomfortable but not too bad. Single mortise lock key provided. Think a second key should be provided to enable person remaining in room to lock the door, I never asked for another key so probably could have got one? Overall... More

We arrived at the hotel late and were warmly welcomed. Our room was clean and very comfortable. I think I could have slept forever, but we had booked the earliest ferry to Islay, so unfortunately our stay was quite short and we had to skip out on breakfast. I would most definitely stay here again.

The room was very clean and comfortable with all the facilities needed. Friendly welcome by the owner and he cooked a great breakfast. The fact that it was full for the majority of time is testemant to its quality.

Back again in Tarbert for the Seafood Festival this time, Despite the weather we had a lovely time. This time we stayed at Knap Guest House. What can I say? Full marks on all fronts. Perfectly situated with a lovely view over the harbour, the pier road and the main road in/out. The bedrooms, clean and comfortable, well equipped right... More

He's actually one of the friendliest people we have ever met. The rooms were comfortable,spacious and clean with some lovely wee touches. Jar of toffees and a fridge with a jug of... More

We stayed here on our way back from Islay. Allistair was a great host, as we were traveling by bicycles, he offered us to drop off some of our luggage prior to taking the ferry until we would come back. Besides that, the guest house is great, decorated very consistently and with a lot of taste. The rooms are spacious... More
