Beautiful house, tastefully decorated and hosts for which nothing is too much trouble. Just back from a weekend in Tobermory, lucky to have found such a lovely b&b. 4 poster bed, massive bathroom, and felt like a bit of luxury. Complimentary afternoon tea, quality breakfast, stunning views over Tobermory and delightful rooms make this a must. 5 minutes walk from...

What a great find this was! We stayed here for 3 nights and in two rooms and everything was perfect. The welcome, the afternoon tea, the rooms and the breakfast. Jane and Adrian do a fantastic job of offering a great stay but giving you your own space at the same time. The rooms were warm and welcoming, fresh, very...

Just the sort of place we like, only four rooms, attention to detail excellent, helpful and friendly hosts, fab breakfasts. We stayed for 2 nights in room 3 with a garden view. Large room with tea and coffee making facilities, large bathroom with good quality toiletries, towels and bathrobes. Wish we'd stayed longer. Would definitely recommend it.

Tea and cake when you arrive, candles by the door in the evening, library full of books, great view and you choose your breakfast the night before. This is an old house, but beautifully done up with a fitting modern interior decor and you are truly made welcome. Room for our bikes in the boiler house, and if you want...

Adrian & Jane couldn't make you more welcome at Strongbarbh House. It's been beautifully renovated and the rooms are very comfortable, the house has stunning views across the bay (not all bedrooms do though!) and they have carefully thought about every detail. The breakfast was just perfect. The setting is so peaceful and is 5 mins from Tobermory harbour on...

There are simply not enough superlatives to adequately describe our experience at Strongarbh House. The rooms, the home-baking, the breakfasts and the unobtrusive, but utterly attentive, service from Jane and Adrian were all perfect. A previous reviewer noted that the hosts have thought of everything and they really, really have. We would return to Mull just to stay in this...

This is genuine gem; comfortable and beautifully designed rooms; ours with a beautiful view of the harbor. Wonderful breakfasts and tea and an easy walk to dinner at night. So restful to come back to after days of exploring the Isles of Mull and Iona.

I stayed at Strongarbh House last week for a couple of days and would heartily recommend a stay at this gorgeous house. The design of the rooms is so thoughtful, a lovely restful house with so much attention to detail. The delicious fresh ingredients used for the breakfasts also shone through.
