“Friendly & relaxed”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were staying in the area for a week in early March and visited the hotel a few times for food & drink. We couldn't fault the friendly service we encountered especially the owner Jonathan who made sure we were well catered for and even going as far to procure a pail of Langoustines for us which we took home - they were absolutely gorgeous so thanks Jon. We would go back again, in fact we are looking forward to going back.

This hotel is in the middle of a fairly major refurb and the usable bar is very limited while the work is on-going. However, we called in when passing on a January Sunday lunchtime and were pleased to find them open and serving food. We had the roast beef which was good but not amazing. The service was good and everybody was very pleasant. Worth a visit.

Disappointing visit, the place was very quiet with no atmosphere and a rather shabby cold feel to it - a bit seventies. Food was average - we got there at 7:30 but it was food last orders which we thought was a bit early! Bog standard nothing special - we didn't go there again even though it was just round the corner. No idea what the accommodation was like though in fairness.

We called at the Salen Hotel after a day at sea with Turus Mara. The bar meal menu was varied and the steak and ale pie and the macaroni cheese were well cooked and tasty. It is always a sign of good food and value for money when locals eat the bar meals. Would eat there again.

We stayed here for 7 nights B&B. The hotel is a traditional family-run small hotel in Salen, about 15-20 minutes drive from the ferry terminal at Craignure, and 20-30 minutes drive from Tobermory. The welcome was friendly and our room was clean and comfortable, if slightly old-fashioned in style. We had booked a twin room but there was both a double and single bed - very comfortable indeed. The en-suite bathroom had a bath with shower over. So far, so good.
After a wash and brush-up we went to the lounge bar, as instructed, for dinner, only to find that the menu, instead of consisting of dishes created from he wealth of local produce that Mull enjoys was mainly pizza, burgers and chips - not at all to our taste, and the desserts were disappointing too. The second night we ate at the Glenforsa nearby, and then we discovered the Mediterranea restaurant a short walk away (see separate review).
It is such a shame as other than the menu it is difficult to say anything against this hotel. The staff are friendly, attentive and helpful and the B&B rates are reasonable. The breakfast is OK, too, so if you intend to go B&B and eat out in the evening this hotel makes a good base for sea trips and sightseeing. I would stay here again, now I know that the Mediterranea is just up the road.

Room Tip: We were in Room 7, which is very quiet.
