This review is rather late. I stayed with Andrew for one night in October 2018 when I travelled for a friends wedding. I just found his card when cleaning out cupboards and old travel docs. I loved my stay and highly recommend at least two nights.

Andrew runs a lovely b&b and goes out of his way to look after you. He has a lovely home full of charm and his 3 dogs are adorable. For a small fee he will provide a huge and delicious breakfast which will keep you going all day. I hope to return.

Plans had to change at the last moment and found this wee gem. Andrew is very friendly and his home is a lovely hideaway. Just off the centre of the village and very handy for the ferry to Portavadie, it is quiet, but a five minute walk into the centre where the bars, restaurants and shops are. The view is of the yacht-filled basin. The beds are comfortable and the room and shower of a good size. Coombed ceilings aren#t a problem for me, they add character. Breakfast also very good

On arrival we were met by Andrew the owner of the B&B. He showed us our room which had the most comfortable bed ever you just sank into the mattress. Andrew asked if we required breakfast next day which we said we would. Wow and wow what a feast full Scottish and fresh fruit and yoghurt. The B&B was exemplary Andrew should pride himself in such a wonderful clean house. We loved everything including the puppets. Andrew has 3 dog but they are so well behaved you wouldn't know they were there. We have never stayed in such a truly exceptional place before well done Andrew we will definitely return when passing again. Julie and Jim.

Andrew was a very accommodating host. I had a single room with en-suite; both were clean and the bed very comfortable. My room also had tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast, cooked or continental was available at a time of my choosing. The lounge is also clean and comfortable although I did not have any free time to make use of it. This room also doubles as the dining room with lovely views out over the harbour. The village of Tarbert is a 5 minute walk from The Moorings. The accommodation is homely and welcomingly warm.
