Expectations were fairly well met after reading many reviews. The location and views are spectacular and must rate as some of the best in Tobermory. The building itself must be one of the old 'grandes dames" of the hotel trade on the island. She is...More

Enjoy stunning views over Tobermory Harbour or across the bay and out to the Sound of Mull. This charming hotel returned to private ownership in September 2008, and is now undergoing a slow transformation back to its former glory. If excellent food, friendly service and a great atmosphere are what you're looking for, then the Western Isles is for you.
