The Western Isles was built in 1882, and like any Grande Dame, she's seen good times and not so good times. The bedrooms are very comfortable, all are en-suite, all have TVs and all have tea & coffee making facilities. We have started the massive task of redecorating, but this is being done piecemeal and will take some time. The Forth Bridge has similar challenges, so in the meantime please enjoy the unique character.
One of the best things about the hotel is that its been built around the view. So most rooms enjoy a fabulous view and all are a comfortable size with our smallest room 17 sq metres and the largest over 50! Its worth remembering that Tobermory Harbour is a working harbour - ships and boats come in and out all day every day of the year.
Each bedroom is priced according to the time of year you visit, and the view that the room enjoys: Inland View; Harbour View; Sea View and Master Sea Views. Click above to see a description of a typical room of each type.
At the moment we don't have a lift, and our bedrooms are found on either the first, second or top floor. So if you would prefer not to climb 3 flights of stairs do let us know when you book. Having said that, the rooms on the top floor do have spectacular views that most folk would say is worth that little bit of extra effort.
For families we have several options so please see the family page of our website.
All bedrooms have digital TV's which receive the usual channels. There are no satellite or cable connections.
Each bedroom also has a hairdryer, and guests can enjoy complementary Arran Aromatics toiletries. You're welcome to take these home with you, but if you do leave them behind, then we send them to a charity for the homeless in Glasgow.
Wifi is available - at no charge - in the reception area.
Some guests have asked us about the Garden Rooms, Mendelssohn and Staffa. For a variety of reasons, these are no longer available as guest accommodation.
