“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

A little hard to find but worth the efforts. The owners work in design and it shows in the beautiful public rooms and the stunning bedrooms. The owner are very nice and the breakfast was great. There is a path from the house down to the Main Street but be warned it is a steep walk back up after a few drinks in one of the three pubs in town.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

A fantastic place to stay. Room was so comfy and big. Large bathroom.
Spent day time out walking and on a lovely return we greeted with tea and cake.
The breakfast is to die for, especially the porridge.
Book here, you wont be disappointed.

This is bliss. Beautiful house. Amazing rooms with super comfortable beds and everything you could possibly need for a relaxing night - including NO TV (chance to chill out even more). Breakfast was beautiful. Eggs Florentine, cooked to perfection - what a treat. And a gallery and brilliantly stocked library with honesty bar on top. Could happily stay forever.

Room Tip: Room overlooking Tobermory Bay is perfect

Stayed at this beautiful location. Felt very much at home. Loved it! Would go again and again. Probably best B&B that we have ever stayed in. Well worth the long journey from the Swiss border. what was very nice was that the bedroom was large and the bathroom massive. No unecessary frills snd volants. Besutifully clean. Breakfast top class.

After staying at the `Strongarbh´ three years ago we decided to spend a whole week again in August.
Well done: A wonderful relaxing week - Jane´s and Adrian´s charming guesthouse is still perfect- even with a better view over the harbour.
This luxury B&B is still a food lover´s dream- and a good choice for interior design enthusiasts as well ! Jane´s porridge is divine (the best in Scotland I suppose) also her cakes for afternoon tea.
And their eye for detail hasn´t lost it´s charm: Delicious organic biscuits and well chosen tea bags, heated towel rails, iPads with individual information for the whole island.
Last but not least the location is perfect "above the cliffs" of charming Tobermory.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: No. 1 and 2 for the harbour view.

High up on the hill overlooking the bay of Tobermory this splendid house of solid stature is a delightful and peaceful B&B. Our beautifully decorated and furnished room,facing the bay, was spacious, light and well equipped. The bathroom was also spacious, airy and light - it, too, having a large window with the same wonderful view. Unfortunately we cannot recall the room's number. The absence of a TV was welcome, but the provision of the ipad was an interesting diversion, giving plenty of information about the area usually only found in a heap of folders etc.
Excellent breakfast, again in a light and airy room with beautiful cornice and interesting artwork inspired by the 1968 student revolution in Paris!
Although quite difficult to find by car clear instructions were provided and the walk down into town was not nearly as difficult/far as one might have expected, thanks to a shortcut down through the gardens.
Arriving back late afternoon on our second day, in wet and breezy weather, we very much enjoyed the complimentary tea and scones provided in the library with the house cat looking on.
On the expensive side but definitely worth it, so it was value for money, and we would stay there again without hesitation.

Just back from a beautiful trip to tobermory. This house was amazing. Adrian and Jane were such nice hosts. The house is beautiful and were were so impressed with the room. We had room3 which has a garden view. The bathroom was large as was the bedroom. There was an Ipad in the room with lots of info on it. The breakfast in the morning was lovely and Adrian did a great job of serving it. Absolutely will return here next trip to Tobermory, the views from the house were superb. Thanks Guys.
