We had a great vacation in August 2008 staying at the Peacock Villa . We rented cabin # 10. Extremely clean, we found that all the little things that you need in your kitchen were there. Very friendly owners, great location.
I was very pleased to find this place, an we will visit again for sure.
Rent a cabin and you will not be dissapointed !

My husband and I rented cabin 8 for 2 nights. It was a charming little cabin that was recently redone. Yes it was tiny but it was very clean and only $50 a night. The owners were very friendly and gave us a map and told us which places were best for sightseeing. It is only a 2 minute walk to the harbour. This is not a fancy place but the cleanliness and friendly owners make up for it. I would recommend this place if you are on a budget. Tobermory is such a beautiful town to visit.

We found the accomodations in Tobermory to be ridiculously expensive without merit. I booked our stay at Peacock Villa motel beacuase they were basically the only ones with an opening and the website looked terrific.

The website makes the place look charming, cozy and almost upscale. The only aspect of that perception that was correct was the overly "cozy" nature of our room. I have NEVER seen such a small room meant to be used by four people in my life -- not even in Europe. Literally, the dimensions of the room couldn' t have been more than 12ftx11ft. The bathroom was so small that you couldn't even bend over in any direction without hitting your head on a wall. (NOT KIDDING) When you sit down to use the commode your knees are literally IN the shower. The bathroom dimensions couldn't have been more than 3ftx3.5ft -- with the shower being counted as floor space. Since there was certainly no way to change in the bathroom, everyone had to clear out of the room until, one by one, we could get ready for our day in privacy. When showering, it felt like the only thing that got clean was our heads and shoulders. Even my scrawny 12 year old said -- "I can't even clean my feet because I keep bumping into the shower when I try to bend over." Even folks who aren't claustrophobic would begin to feel anxious in this room -- for people like me and my husband who don't like to feel "trapped"; this room was a nightmare, literally.

Furthermore, there is no way to keep the room cooled other than open windows and a lame ceiling fan. Forget modesty or privacy -- all rooms are ground level and if you want air to circulate, you can't close the blinds because it would block the breeze, so you're left with the blinds open, windows open and people strolling back and forth in front of your room, looking in, all hours of the day and night. It's pretty disconcerting to wake up in the morning with a stranger literally staring at you in bed from the sidewalk in front of your room.

In fairness, I do have to say that the room was pretty clean. The towels were laundered well and the sheets were clean but the blankets had seen better days.

The inn keeper was initially nice but totally clueless. The families on either side of us were allowed to carry on loudly both days we were there. They got up very early and proceeded to make all kinds of racket in their room and then moved to the sidewalk in front of our room and commenced talking loudly to one another and playing with their children on the sidewalk, screaming and yelling for more than an hour, unabated by management.

Finally after two days of dealing with the intolerable accomodations, we left a day early and I asked for my money back -- we made sure that we left well before check out. The motel owner told me that they have a three day cancellation policy and refused to refund our money, even though they re-rented our room before night's end. (We checked) In other words, they double dipped on our room and didn't refund our money -- $100 per night. My emails have gone unacknowledged.

All things considered, I would not recommend this motel to anyone. The website is misleading and the owner does not provide customer service.

  • Liked — Basically clean room
  • Disliked — Super claustrophobic room with no privacy at all.
