Knap B&B had been recommended by friends and we weren't disappointed. The room was very comfortable and had a lovely view over the harbour. Alasdair was a perfect host and we enjoyed our morning chats whilst he was cooking our breakfast. He also managed to reunite me with my shaver within 24 hours of us checking out and leaving it...

The B&B is in a great location by the harbor. The rooms are well kept and lovely decorated. Elephants are a theme throughout, in a charming way. Rooms got clan names. Comfort is great. Alistair running the guest house was very accommodating helping us out with all our requests. His breakfast was brilliant. If ever my path should cross through...

Perfect location at the harbour, and the owner, Alistair runs a really friendly and comfortable guest house. Very welcoming, room not huge, but perfect for a long weekend. Comfy bed, all facilities you would expect - nice touch of a bathrobe in the wardrobe, and a small fridge, which had milk and water in it. Fabulous breakfast.

Great host, spotless, comfy bed, pristeen bedding, brilliant breakfast. Choose this place. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Tarbert then here's the place. Little touches like sweets shows how much pride has been put into each room. I cant fault it at all.

Knap Guest house is situated in the heart of Tarbert, right at the harbor. Comfortable rooms, adequately furnished, modern and spacious bathroom. Rooms are upstairs, so be prepared to tackle a flight of stairs. WiFi provided for free throughout the whole house, although it was bit shaky when we stayed there. Inviting common rooms, which were nicely decorated as is...

Would sincerely recommend this B&B; the en-suite room was as advertised,simply furnished but very clean and comfortable. With Wi-Fi, tea/coffee making facilities, a dish of sweets and a very generous breakfast. Superb views of the harbour and the extensive knowledge of Alistair, our host, made for a lovely albeit short stay.

Lovely room overlooking the harbour with a small en-suite shower room. The bed was comfortable, the wifi worked well and we had a small fridge in the room meaning fresh milk for our tea. The breakfast was served in a comfortably sized breakfast room and the food was delicious. My husband really enjoyed the smoked salmon. There is free parking...
