Strongarbh House is a beautifully restored, impeccably maintained property. The hosts, Adrian and Jane, are totally focused on delivering a fantastic experience to every guest. They host a complimentary afternoon tea, and have an awesome breakfast menu with great variety and daily specials, giving the feeling of being at a high quality boutique restaurant for breakfast rather than a B&B!...

We enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay here. The quality furnishings and added extras, like the 'Nespresso style' coffee maker, afternoon tea in the lounge, bathrobes and little guide book on Mull, make this old country house with fabulous Tobermory Bay views a perfect place to stay. The owners provide a discreet, yet attentive service with good breakfast choices very... More

Our second stay at this lovely high quality B&B. The owners are so welcoming and the complimentary afternoon tea wonderful! Amazing elevated position above Tobermory looking out over the bay. Highly recommended.

A beautiful house renewed with a subtle design eye that brings together many periods,matched with a welcome that made staying here a joy. Daytime views over the harbour were outdone by a nighttime sky that went forever Perfect location

The only negative point of this establishment is the fairly steep,10 minute walk back from the seafront and action. Everything else was superb. Friendly and informative hosts, wonderful Scottish breakfasts, immaculately clean, would certainly revisit if back on Mull.

We have been to literally hundreds of B&Bs over the last 10 years and this would rate in the top 3. Lovingly restored by the hosts the house overlooks the harbor and is well appointed in every way. The breakfast is superb, the afternoon tea creative and the welcome very warm.

Stayed here with friend overnight during whistle-stop visit to Mull. Possibly the nicest accommodation I have ever stayed in. Beautiful house with stunning views, within easy reach of Tobermory centre. Every detail was thoughtfully and carefully presented whilst being really comfortable and unpretentious. Textiles, art, food and toiletries locally sourced and of highest standard. Tea in library real treat. Breakfast... More

We had a wonderful two night stay at Strongarbh House. It's in a great quiet location a short uphill walk from Tobermory waterfront with its shops and restaurants. There's plenty of room to park on the driveway. The house itself is to die for - gorgeous period architecture enhanced by minimalist decor and attention to detail. It is a house... More
