We booked this place after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and visiting their Website. It was actually a little difficult to get the full feel for the rooms, hence, I include a few photos here… We were not disappointed…
We arrived late having missed the ferry and hence got there around 11:45pm. Adrian was on hand to welcome us and take us to the room, which had been prepared with the lights tastefully dimmed on to give a lovely feel of relaxation the moment we walked in.
We thought the room (number 1) was great. Large bay window overlooking Tobermory harbour, big modern 4 poster bed (very comfy), great chairs, iPod dock etc. The WIFI was easy to connect to and had a good signal, plus there was a “library” downstairs where we could relax and make use of the maps and guidebooks. There were also board games etc if you wanted, and I thought the room was a great place for a last drink before retiring upstairs to bed, and also spend the afternoon if the weather is not suitable for venturing outside.
Breakfast was substantial and tasty, and we particularly liked the fact that there was a different daily special to also choose from. I keep in fact meaning to e-mail Adrian and Jane to get the recipe for the Baked Eggs with Local Salmon…
The B&B is only a five minute walk into the centre of Tobermory. We found it a charming village and our only disappointment was not being able to try out the nearby Fish Restaurant called Cafe Fish. If you are planning on trying it out, make sure you book.
Our final experience was very much another highlight. We were likely to be a little rushed to check out and asked if there was any chance of a late check out. We were informed that as the room was not occupied that evening, there was no need to rush and take our time. Perfect…
