This is a very comfortable small B&B in the upper village of Tobermory.
The landlady is very friendly and helpful and I can thoroughly recommend the breakfast sausages (from a master butcher in Oban) and the kippers.
The rooms have a 'welcome tray' with tea/coffee-making facilities which pass my 'biscuit test', and there are lots of guidebooks available for guests to borrow.
There are two bedrooms off a private landing (one double, one twin), with an adjacent shower room. This is ideal for groups of three or four, but if there are fewer of you, you can have sole occupancy for a supplement.
There is also use of a comfortable lounge downstairs.
Charges (Spring 2009) were £19.50 per person B&B; singles £25 per person B&B, two persons with sole use of house £25 per person B&B.
This was a lovely place to stay. On the main street with lovely views of the harbour. A small garden in back when you tire of the sea (who does that?). The Hostesses were wonderful (thanks again!) and our fellow travelers there were full of stories from all over the world!
Great Views. Easy access to town!
This was the smallest room I stayed in during my 3 week vacation. It was a single - twin bed - and the bed just fit the length of the room. It had a sink and closet. And outside the window was the sidewalk, the street and then the harbor. SO convenient! It was very clean and comfortable. The hosts, Robin and Louise Harrowsmith, are very nice.
They have a variety of rooms available and No Smoking, no pets. (My allergies and asthma thank them!!)
Two of the best things about Harbour Guest House is how close you are to the main street and the harbor. I just had to walk across the parking lot where the Craignure bus dropped me to the Guest House -- and with it raining that day -- that was Wonderful!
The second thing is the view outside the of dining room that Louise and Robin have created. There is a very large window overlooking a steep hillside that has been planted with ferns and flowers and has birdfeeders and birdbaths. That little area was always full of birds - delightful!
I was never able to take advantage of their full breakfasts as I always left too early in the morning, however, Louise very kindly left milk available with a wide range of cereals and fruit.
