25th October 2023:

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely short stay in Oban at Barriemore accommodation. Perfect location on the shore in Oban bay and a beautifully presented, spacious room for 2 nights. Host communicated very well throughout and made our stay as straight-forward and enjoyable as possible. Would highly recommend this room only destination for a comfortable, pleasant place to rest your head at night. Oban is a lovely place to visit. Just wish the weather was better.

Tips:

We didn't do much. Was very relaxing and comfortable. We did eat out a couple of times and would definitely recommend the Indian restaurant, Taj Mahal.

The time we had at Barriemore in Oban was a DREAM. I will hold this place close to my heart forever. The location, room with a view of the coast and the town itself was truly magical. We will certainly be back to visit and likely stay at Barriemore as many times as we can.

Tips:

Mallaig Tower, Tartan Tavern, Oban Inn, and any of the seafood are must sees/stops. If you have a car, it’s only a short drive away to some Cairns and castles. Next time we will go to the island of Mull

Very comfortable place. Location was great because we like to walk and the walk to the main areas of town was about 15-20 minutes. Great location to visit the Dunollie Castle.

Tips:

Oban Inn is a small, friendly place to have a cold beer. Coast Restaurant was a wonderful surprise and delicious. The Green Shack for the best fresh oysters is a must!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you in Oban. Our room was beautifully spacious and decorated and the views were spectacular. It was nice to have a chilled bottle of water waiting for us in the room. The shower and toiletries were great. Thank you.

Tips:

The Ganavan Sands Parkrun was fantastic and I would recommend this friendly event to everyone. The beach and the views there were amazing. We also really enjoyed coffee and cakes at Julie’s café, as well as the War and Peace Museum and the walk to McCaig’s Monument.,

Would highly recommend this hotel. Friendly and most helpful, especially when we asked to stay longer. Sent us very helpful information about our stay, local places of interest and places to eat. Beautiful view from our bedroom window.

Tips:

Particularly loved The Olive Garden restaurant in Oban - excellent food. Also Dunollie Castle within walkable distance from the hotel - excellent guided tour. Very pleasant day trip on CalMac ferry to beautiful Tobermory in Mull. Loved the Hebridean island experience!

This is our second stay at the Barriemore and will definitely be returning. We were initially booked to stay for 2 nights but the heavy rain caused road closures. A quick call to Jan and they put us back into our original room for another night. Jan was excellent in keeping guests informed of the road situation, contacting Traffic Scotland and Bear Scotland and provided useful update on road closures for our journey home. Jan and Mark truly care about their guests, going over and above to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. The check in/out system is efficient and works really well. Top quality tea, coffee and toiletries provided for our stay. The rooms are cleaned to a high standard especially for being a dog friendly hotel. Thank you for the warm hospitality and we look forward to staying again soon.

Really love staying here, location is brilliant, I booked a seaview which was stunning. Room was super clean, had a fridge full of refreshments which was much appreciated. I have stayed here before which is why i rebooked. I travel every season with clients and I would love to be booked here every time but it is usually fully booked, which is not surprising as it is such a great place to stay. Thank you for providing such a comfortable clean and modern, homely room for my stay.

Barriemore was excellent, great location with views from the hotel overlooking the sea. There is a conservatory where you can look at the view also benches at the front. Our room was on the first floor with a huge bed, powerful shower, great Scottish toiletries. There was a fridge in the room with cold water, tea and coffee and little touches like caramel wafers and iron bru and a ripple of sherry. 2 comfortable chairs and a little table. Loads of storage too

Tips:

Oban distillery was well worth a visit.The whisky is nice. EE-usk was a lovely treat, a lovely fish restaurant, we booked prior to our visit The green hut on the pier next to the ferry was a great find, the seafood was great value for money and a friendly experience as there are 2 tables under cover Everyone we saw was really friendly

Beautifully maintained property and the rooms was absolutely gorgeous. Unparalleled views of Oban Bay. It is only a 10 minute walk to town and walking along the esplanade is most enjoyable. The room was ourselves exceptionally large and luxuriously fitted.

Tips:

Highly recommend using this accommodation as a base for exploring the outer Islands. Comfortable walk to the ferry where you can get to an amazing assortment of tours and day trips to Islands like Mull, Staffa and Iona.

The Barriemore Oban is a beautiful, welcoming, squeaky clean and incredibly comfortable stay. We loved every minute of our time in Oban and the Barriemore was a huge part of that. The view is stunning! Our group of six each had lovely rooms, different but all excellently appointed. We will, hands down, stay at the Barriemore again and can't wait to do so!

This was a lovely stay,albeit for just 1 night. We were in room 7 and it was a real treat with amazing views out towards the harbour. A better room we could not have wished for. Great parking on site and 5 minutes or so into town. Perfect.

An easy stroll into town where there are lots of bars and restaurants. We particularly liked the Oban Inn on the corner. Great atmoshere and good music.

Truly the loveliest guest property that my wife and I have ever stayed in. Everything was pristine and elegant; self check-in went seamlessly; there is an option to order a scran box for breakfast; thoughtful welcome touches in the room; lots of information available on things to do and see in the area; the owners are friendly and helpful. We stayed in room A and I don’t have the words to describe how beautiful and spacious it is with a full view of Oban Harbour. Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer.

Tips:

Many restaurants and pubs are within walking distance of the Barriemore and a lovely walk it is along the harbour. Also shops and day trips nearby. Lots of info in the room and entryway. We particularly liked Marky Dans (recommended by the property owner) for a casual pub meal and good beer.

We had such a wonderful stay here. It was beautiful, spacious, very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. We were in the self catering apartment yet they still left croissants and bags of coffee and tea for us to make in the morning. The couple who runs the place was very nice and gave us recommendations when I asked and accommodated an early check in for us. I, like other travelers who left reviews, thought that it looked a bit out of town according to the map, but it wasn’t and in fact the walk to and from town was beautiful along the water and perfect for walking off all the big meals! Also a very easy walk to the Dunollie castle that we very much enjoyed.

Returning guest and not disappointed. While a full breakfast no longer a choice this was clearly explained at time of booking and repeated when completing the self checkin firm and indeed made our stay more flexible as not tied to be in breakfast dining room by a particular time plus the room rate was adjusted to reflect this. The Barriemore is a very welcoming guest house , decorated to a high standard with some lovely touches around the house - notably the small decanter of complimentary sherry together with 2 Tunnocks caramel wafers & can of IrnBru- plus a relevant nautical theme throughout given the property overlooks Oban Bay with excellent views of the Calmac ferries plus other sailing boats. The conservatory is a very quiet relaxing room again looking out to the Bay with complimentary coffee / tea bags available plus small fridge & microwave evident if required. The bedroom was ideal - again very clean / tidy with a nice walk in shower in the bathroom plus toileteries provided. Both mattress and pillows were very comfortable which made for an excellent nights sleep. TV / radio provided were also welcome.

Tips:

The Oban Inn is a particular favourite of ours - traditional pub interior with excellent choice of beer/ales plus whisky etc. Nice and relaxing place if you can get a table outside to sit with a few drinks and just people watch or admire the view towards the pier. Inside the pub we enjoyed the live trad music played by locals and after moving to the upstairs lounge had some very nice fish and chips plus haggis, neeps & tatties. We also eat in the China Restaurant opposite the distillery. While the food was very nice with dishes fulsome the interior was quite shaby with a damp smell and definitely in need of some upgrading / decoration and overall general tidy. The Correvechan ( Wetherspoons pub ) is ideally located on the pier. A typical Spoons set up with very reasonable food / drink prices.Generally busy but great to sit at the window or outside seating area with a drink overlooking the ferry pier and bay.

Tips:

Coast restaurant, but book early; plenty of fresh sea food places if that’s to your liking. Oban: spend time relaxing, some interesting shops to suit different tastes, McCaig’s tower, relax and walk around - take in the bay. From Oban: take a ferry to explore other isles eg Mull. Or take a small boat trip to see the wildlife. Go inland: Inveraray, Fort William, Ben Cruachan, and places in between, the list is endless. Have a drink/meal at the Creagan Inn overlooking Loch Creran. You’ll have a great time whatever you do.

Quite simply the best value accommodation in Oban. Location is perfect situated on the promenade with a very flat walk of around 15 minutes into town. The rooms are spotlessly clean with everything you would need for your stay. Extra little touches add to the pleasure such as Irn bru and caramel wafers (a taster from Scotland) and some sherry. The breakfast tray is terrific value and a great start to the day. Jan and Mark are at hand if needed and the staff cleaning rooms etc are very friendly. We are already looking forward to staying here next year.

Tips:

We recommend pre booking restaurants as they are very busy this time of year Cuan Mhor is the only one I can think of that doesn't accept bookings. Our favourites are Olive Garden, Piazza, Eeusk, Taj Mahal and Bar Rio. There are plenty of other lovely places to eat and I'm sure everyone has their own preferences.

First of all, Mark and Jan were attentive and friendly hosts. Couldn't ask for better. Second, our sea view room was beautiful. The only problem with it was it was so comfortable and the view was magnificent that we were tempted to just sit there, look out at the water, and relax. But we overcame the temptation and went on several beautiful walks near Oban and Glencoe. This was our second stay at the Barriemoore and we certainly look forward to our next visit. Outstanding!

Along the Esplanade in Oban, a number of grand old houses built in the late 1800’s line the street and look out on Oban Bay. The Barriemore is one of these, which have been turned into guest houses. We had a first story room (above ground floor), with big windows looking out on the bay and beyond, to the Isle of Kerrera and in the distance, to the Isles of Lismore and Mull. Our room was large and beautifully appointed, with a king sized and very comfortable bed. It had large chairs at the windows as well as a pair of binoculars, for looking out the windows. There was an old fireplace and armoire. A small refrigerator in the room was very useful. The bathroom was large and very nicely decorated. There is a back room with space for bike storage, ice, and glassware. From the house, it is a short walk into town, to the shops, restaurants and port, where one can get a ferry to Mull or other islands. We took a ferry to Mull, then a launch to Staffa to see Fingal’s cave and the Puffins on the isle. Mark and his wife Jan, the innkeepers, were very prompt in answering questions. We had a nice chat with Mark who gave us great advice for driving in the area. We hope to return to Oban, to do more of the activities the area has to offer, and will definitely stay at the Barriemore.

Tips:

Delicious fish and chips at Norries and Oban Fish and Chips.

Tips:

There are plenty of local places to eat. Markie Dan's is a popular place. Also the local fish and chip shops are popular. You can book a tour of Oban distillery. The walk up to McCaigs Tour is very steep but it is worth the walk for the view. You can get a ferry to Mull or Tiree. The weather was against us when we tried to go but I would go back in the Spring/Summer and try again.

If you need anything at all Mark and Jan are easily contacted and can't do enough to make your stay a great experience. The information you receive when you book is comprehensive to say the least regarding dining, days out etc. Each room has a car parking space. The location is ideal for walking into Oban Town,approx 15 minutes. The views from the Barriemore are beautiful looking down the Sound. I can't fault the Barriemore at all and would recommend booking a sea view room.

Almost didn't want to go into town to eat. Just enjoyed sitting by the huge windows and watching the world go by... Will definitely return next time in Oban ..

Cuan Mor near the harbor is a great value with fine food.... Oban Inn is always worth a stop for a cocktail and the Mac and cheese looked very good....Must have been since all the people sitting near us were eating it....

Nice people, always ready to help and good to talk to. Well furnished and beautifully decorated rooms. Always a parking space, so important in Oban! Breakfast Box, a novel idea and the contents got us through past lunchtime. We've been visiting Barriemore for about 6 years and it's our first choice in town. Views across the bay are breathtaking, sunrise and sunset. The big ferries pass the door.

Tips:

EATING OUT. Our experience this week... POPPIES, Dunbeg - Easy to park. Great Burgers, lovely location. COAST, good service, superb sea food. EE-USK, window views, Reasonable prices, very good food. PIAZZA, Cheerful dining out, not expensive. Not much meat choice. OLIVE GARDEN, expensive, food average, (Haddock fish and chips dreadful) No plan to return. WETHERSPOONS, usual fare, cheap, cheerful and always a warm seat. NOTE - CUAN MOR, usually good but we couldn't get a seat this trip!

Excellent service, not intrusive but nothing is too much trouble.

Tips:

Too much to mention, Oban is a wonderful place with plenty to suit all tastes. It is also the Gateway to the Highlands, so you can take advantage of that if you wish and travel either inland to many not too distant wonderful places or across the sea to some of the spectacular Hebridean islands.

Excellent communication throughout, both during booking and while we were staying. I can't thank you enough for allowing me to stay in the apartment the night before the rest of my family arrived..it made everything so much easier.

Tips:

We enjoyed Eeusk and Coast restaurants, booked before we arrived. We did the Mull/Iona tour and an afternoon trip with Sea Life Adventures out to Corryvreckan, which was fantastic.

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfortable and the guest house was in a good situation overlooking the sea. Our only niggle was a very stiff tap in the bathroom. Excellent shower and nice big towels.

Tips:

The trip to Mull, Staffa and (the island that my auto correct keeps changing to Mona) is fantastic but wear warm clothes. Has to be followed by the tasty fish and chips on the ferry back to Oban! We enjoyed the breakfasts at the Shore cafe.

Best stay of 3 weeks in Scotland. I stayed in 7 hotels in 3 weeks. All were very good in my opinion. But Barriemore blew our socks off! Our room was "simply" elegant, huge and well appointed. The bath was the size of a single car garage in the States with room to spare. We lingered for hours in the morning/evenings watching the ships enter the harbor from our double windows. The street was quiet and a nice walk to town along the harbor front. Mark & Jan are delightful.

Tips:

Oban is a quaint town with many shops and cafes. Relax and walk to the castle behind the Barriemore, or stroll around the harbor front. Seek and Ye shall find!

SEAFRONT/BAY LOCATION TO WATCH COMINGS AND GOINGS OF FERRIES AND PLEASURE BOATS.

Tips:

15/20 MINUTE WALK TO OBAN CENTRE WHICH IS PLEASANT(IF YOU'RE ABLE AND IT'S NOT RAINING).WETHERSPOONS IS THE PLACE FOR REASONABLE PRICES ON FOOD AND DRINK WITH PLENTY OF OTHER OPTIONS IF YOU WANT/CAN SPEND MORE.THIS IS HANDY SINCE NO COOKED BREAKFAST IN THE HOTEL MEANS A LEISURELY RISE BEFORE A STROLL INTO TOWN.

This beautiful accommodation is located about a 10 minute walk from City center but it's an easy stroll and nice to not have the noise of city center. The rooms are luxuriously appointed and absolutely stunning. It is directly across the street from the water and ferries go by creating a wonderful visual. I cannot wait to return.

Tips:

Be sure to take one of the ferry tours to the outer Islands. The ferry terminal is right in city center and it's so easy to arrange. The Oban distillery is right in town and there are wonderful restaurants.

Fantastic spacious room with lovely views. Host was welcoming and helpful. Excellent location for Oban and surrounding area. Lovely touches in the room such as the Sherry, biscuits and a fridge. Range of furniture in the room really enhanced our stay and the decor was contemporary and stylish.

Tips:

Great pub in Oban on the corner and a range of tasty local seafood served at various locations we visited. In particular the Fish Taco shack! An excellent starting point for trips over to nearby islands including Mull and the small and lesser known Kerrera with its cheap passenger ferry, circular walks, cafe and castle to explore.

Jan & Mark provided a healthy option for breakfat & enough to see you through lunch as well. Covid has been a testing time for everyone, especially meal times & the Barrimore have handled this very well. Breakfast hampers are delivered to your room, what a delight! The Conservatory has great view over the sea, nice to look out, in the evening.

Tips:

Loved to have tried the fish restaurant, in the centre of town but couldn't get in, so I would recommend booking any place before hand. Can recommend any of the tearooms/coffee shops around the town. McCaig's Tower is worth a visit, as it the distillery in the centre of town.

The bar fridge in the room is most convenient. The guests’ lounge is a very good size, with access to microwave, crockery and cutlery, with a great warm conservatory adjacent. A very relaxing stay in a wonderful location on the Esplanade, a short walk from the town centre. Thankyou.

Loved the location …..easy to walk into the town or to the Castle etc…… Great facilities provided by the hotel, such as the guests lounge with a microwave provided to heat up food if required if you don’t want to eat out 😊 Modern classic bedrooms with comfortable beds ! Fabulous sunsets! Friendly host

Tips:

Loved the Oban Inn …..very good meals at reasonable prices and very welcoming staff Would recommend Oban sea tours ……2 hour boat trip from the harbour with very knowledgeable guides on board. We saw a sea eagle, seals and porpoises on this particular day but the minke whale proved elusive sadly! Visited Dunollie Castle and fortunately on a Sunday they had a piper playing the bagpipes which was very nostalgic

We are regular visitors to Barriemore in Oban for very good reason, the accommodation is fantastic with fabulous views of the sea and Oban. Barriemore has great guest facilities including reliable wi-fi, complimentary sherry decanter and soft drinks/biscuits, a compact refrigerator, there are even binoculars in the sea view apartments for your personal use. The apartments are very comfortable, well appointed with a flat screen tv, an iron and ironing board, hairdryer, custom toiletries in the bathrooms and are kept spotlessly clean by the staff. You always receive a warm welcome from hosts Mark and Jan, and if you have not experienced the wonderful breakfast hampers, you are missing out during your stay here. The location on Corran Esplanade is fantastic with a peaceful conservatory/reading room, or a lovely external terrace with fantastic sea views if you prefer? There is also a designated parking space for each guest bedroom, and those of you who visit Oban regularly will know how convenient that is! Barriemore is within an easy 15 minute stroll into the centre of Oban and the ferry terminals, or approximately £3.50 for a taxi into the centre. The only reservation I have is, in posting this review it will invariably mean that we will have to make our reservations even earlier in future. Thank you Mark, Jan and Staff for yet another wonderful stay, we really appreciated it and will be rebooking with you directly again for our next stay. Love and Best Wishes, Ian and Linda xx

Tips:

Great restaurants in Oban - Fine Dining - Etive; Our Particular Favourite - Coast; Highly recommended - The Olive Garden, Ee-usk (Seafood), The Lorne Bar (Great Pub Grub), 'Taste of Argyll) (Great Lunches and Full Scottish Breakfasts) We would recommend booking well in advance for all of the above eateries! Finally no trip to Oban for Sea Food Lovers would be complete without a visit to the 'Green Shack' on Oban pier for the freshest seafood in Oban in a really informal outside setting! Things to Do: Visit Oban Distillery, Day trips to the islands on the Cal Mac Ferries, Take a walk to McCaigs Tower, or Dunollie Castle and Museum(Turn Right from Barriemore and it's a 10 minute walk)!We also enjoyed Oban's War and Peace Museum.

Jolie maison en pierre, au bord de l’océan, à quelques minutes à pied du centre d'Oban et au calme. Vue exceptionnelle ! Peu avant notre arrivée, un message nous indiquait comment accéder à la chambre librement (clés dans enveloppe nominative à l’entrée = facile). Nous avons croisé le propriétaire, tout à fait disposé à nous conseiller (ferry, restaurants…). Chambre et salle de bain très spacieuses et très propres, très bien équipées et décorées avec beaucoup de goût. Parking privatif. Oban est une petite station balnéaire agréable, idéalement située sur la Route des Iles (Mull, Fort William, Skye…). Un véritable coup de coeur !!!

Tips:

Nous recommandons : . Oban Seafood Hut, une petite « guitoune » à côté de CalMac Ferries. On y déguste des fruits de mers et/ou plateaux, moules, frites..., sur des tables en bois et des bancs, "à la bonne franquette" comme on dit en France. Mais y aller avant 18h. . la distillerie, qui propose visite et/ou dégustation de whiskys. Dégustation certes payante mais qui peut aider avant d'acheter. Excellent accueil.

The Barriemore is a very comfortable old house just at the end of Front Street where the best sunsets are on offer with a superb view across the channel to Kerrerra. The view is ever changing with boat traffic, the light and the weather. Add to that the well appointed flat we were staying in and you have the perfect base for your Oban holiday. It's very handy for the road north out of Oban too. So a lot less seasonal congestion to deal with.

Tips:

Oban Sea Tours are handy on the North Pier. Make sure you get on the history and wildlife tour with excellent guide and storyteller Isla.

My Husband and I have stayed at the Barriemore many times over the years. We immediately relax upon arrival as the Guest House is comfortable and clean with all the facilities that you need. Mark and Jan, the owners, are friendly and extremely helpful and welcoming. The breakfast hamper provides you with a good quality breakfast and food that you can take away on any day trips. On the lower floor there is a conservatory and cosy lounge area where you can sit and read or eat any food brought in that you can heat up in the microwave provided. The location is great as the walk into town is always enjoyable. We would not think about staying anywhere else in Oban. The quality of the accommodation is first class.

Tips:

Restaurants: Eeusk, Olive Garden, Piazza, Cuan Mohr, The Pierhouse area all places we enjoy eating at. Things to see/do: Oban Distillery, Ferry to Mull/Iona/Staffa, Easedale, Crinon Canal, Lochgilphead, Cruachan Power Station, Inveraray Castle/Jail, are but a few. Leaflets for trips, etc, can be found in the entrance hall of the Barriemore and there is a Tourist Information Office in town.

Our room was immaculate with great views towards the sea and contained many little extras which enhanced our stay. These include the decanter of sherry, toiletries, Tunnocks caramel wafer biscuits, the irn bru and a bottle of water in the room fridge. We would be more than happy to stay here again on any future visit and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Our stay at your beautiful B&B was wonderful! The brandy with cherry under tones was the perfect way to end our day. We also appreciate that something opened up when we needed to extend our stay an additional day. Beth and Greg Harben

Tips:

Oban Chocolate company had the best scones! We ate at piazza at the pier twice. Bossards Patiserie had great hand pies for our day trips.

Tips:

Outstanding accommodation and hosting by Mark, Jan and their staff at Barriemore on Corran Esplanade on Oban's sea front. Yet another Fabulous stay in Barriemore and the now familiar warm welcome on arrival by super hosts Mark and Jan, prior to entering our immaculately prepared ground floor suite. Guests needs in all of the rooms rooms are really well provided, with Tea and Coffee making facilities, a nice cool bottle of water in the mini fridge, or a can of Scotland's famous soft drink 'Made fae Girders' accompanied by biscuits, there is even a small decanter of sherry to welcome you to the Barriemore Hair Dryer, an iron and ironing board are provided, as are beautiful custom hand gels, shower gels and moisturisers in the bathrooms. A lovely large varied continental breakfast is available to be delivered to your room door in the morning if required, and my wife and I have yet to finish eating one! We are regular visitors from Perth to the Barriemore in Oban due to all of the above and the wonderfully warm welcome from the owners, for whom nothing seems to be a problem. Thank you All for yet another Wonderful Stay and we will see you all again in August

Tips:

Our Favourite restaurants are 'Coast' great seafood and steaks and 'Etive' for that special occasion - Michelin Prices, but I would advise booking well in advance if you want a particular date/time, and'Taste of Argyll Kitchen' also does wonderful lunches and afternoon meals? For good 'Pub Grub' we also liked the 'Lorne Bar' and the 'Oban Inn', and for fantastic informal, wonderfully fresh sea food, you must try 'The Green Shack' at the ferry terminal! You are spoiled for things to do in the Oban area, but we would recommend the distillery tour, the Ocean Explorer Centre (In Dunbeg), the Oban War and Peace Museum, or one of the numerous ferries available to the Islands of Mull or Lismore, Easdale or Kerrera for day trips.

The room was immaculate and well provisioned. We particularly liked the mini fridge provided with chilled water, and in which we could chill drinks. The view across the Bay was amazing. Although it was self check in this did not adversely affect our experience and it was very easy. By following the simple instructions sent to us we had no problem with getting into the building and our room. The town centre was a few minutes walk away.

Tips:

We would recommend visiting the local bars such as the Oban Inn and Coasters, both do reasonable food. There are several good restaurants catering to all tastes also as well as coffee shops. There are many places to visit such as seil island, and Ardfern Marina as well as the many ferry trips to Mull etc.

This was a great place to stay. Rooms were all of a very high standard and the attention to the small details was very much appreciated (caramel wafers and irn bru bars who could ask for more). Rooms came with all the things needed for a break away from home. Lounges downstairs provided a great space to relax. Views from the seats outside were magnificent. Mark and Jan were great hosts and couldn't do enough to help.

Tips:

Coast great place for the special occasions and views from Eusk and Piazza great. Best place for a traditional pub with good atmosphere and friendly welcome for us was the Tartan Tavern but the Oban Inn offers a great atmosphere too.

Tips:

There is a bus stop to and from the centre of town, ferry terminal etc which is a few yards from the front of the hotel (bus 417) Giant skate fishing trips (our biggest was 138lb) The town centre has a very large selection of bars, pubs and restaurants.

The breakfast room is not being used because of covid, but Mark and Jan deliver a continental breakfast to your door each morning that changes each day. There is also the option to grab a hot sandwich downstairs! Mark and Jan were also really accommodating when we left early two mornings and brought us our breakfast the night before.

We loved our room. There was everything we needed to be comfortable and relaxed. The Taylors coffee and the smoked salmon for breakfast add to the quality feel of the stay. The spacious room and wide bed are exactly what we wanted for relaxing and a good nights sleep. Love the quality of the decor. Small issue with the shower head which is too heavy for the holder and won’t sit at the correct angle. The left under blind at the window also needs some black marks cleaned off. Looks like grease or oil (?). Small complaints as overall we thought it was worth every penny
