This was a wonderful B&B, run by two ladies who are very attentive to detail. They provided lots of information about the area, served a lovely breakfast, and the rooms were spotlessly clean. It is also just a long block from the ferry to Iona, and a short block to a fun pub for dinner. And they have a lovely... More

I stayed for two nights at the end of September. The B&B is a few minutes walk from Fionnphort ferry terminal - easy if travelling without a car as there is a regular bus service to the main ferry terminal on Mull at Craignure. The house is very comfortable – I had a room with views over to Iona and... More

This is our second visit at the Staffa House Bed and Breakfast. Guests are welcomed with a pot of tea and homemade shortbread in the solarium. The house is well-maintained and decorated with art from local artists from Mull and Iona. The beds are super comfortable and the towels big and fluffy. Many of the breakfast ingredients are from the... More

The enthusiasm of the owners for Mull and Iona is enormous, and they are excellent at sharing it with others: offering advice, suggesting excursions, lending maps and so on. This gives an extra dimension to a stay at Staffa House. The breakfasts were delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Evening meals were not available when we stayed, but the... More

I stayed 3 nights in early September 2016 at Staffa House in Erraid, a lovely double-bedroom on the first floor. It gave onto a peaceful view of a well-tended, flourishing garden.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay, we arrived in Fionnphort by public transport so quite a long journey by train, ferry and bus (although worth it for the views!) Gillian welcomed us to Staffa House with a cup of tea and homemade shortbread. Breakfast is served in the conservatory with amazing views across to Iona, and the scrambled eggs and croissants were delicious.... More
