I would actually give this hotel 4.5 out of 5, but this option does not seem available on Tripadvisor.
We've stayed at the Princess Hotel twice, and have enjoyed our stay tremendously both times. The hotel itself is situated right at the harbour in Tobermory.
I have broken down the review by category:
Rooms: If it is within your budget, treat yourself to a harbour room view, it's such a lovely view. However, the side room that we stayed on was quite nice too. The photos that I put up are from the side room view. I believe that our side room (third floor, facing away from parking lot) had one of the nicer views, from what I could see. A previous reviewer had mentioned a rumbling sound from the rooms at the South end of the hotel. Yes, we did hear a low rumbling at times, but it didn't bother us. Another review mentioned moldy smelling carpets in the hallway. I did not notice this at all, and am usually quite affected by mold. Perhaps the problem was corrected since the review was written (?)
Proximity to Attractions: Walk out and you are at the harbour with all of the shops, boats etc.!
Staff: Super friendly! It's a family run place, and they were wonderful. Thanks Tessie!
Breakfast: Free oatmeal/toast or corn flaks, and coffee and juice. You have to pay for anything more than that.
Restaurant: for our budget, Tobermory is a bit pricey, and the same would apply to the restaurant here, though no complaints about the food.
One tiny recommendation to the hotel staff: would it be possible to have a couple of rooms set up with small fridges for those of us who are staying in Tobermory for more than a night or two? We would have happily paid a bit extra for this convenience!
Conclusion: If you are coming to Tobermory, I'd highly recommend staying at this hotel. It is clean, close to the harbour and the staff are fantastic.
