I stayed for four nights in June. I was travelling alone without a car so the location of the hotel seemed ideal. I wasn't expecting five star luxury based on the hotel rating and reviews but expected a bit higher standard than what I received.
The room I was in was on the ground floor so no sea view but nice window to the rear garden. All decor VERY dated and lots of wool tartan seat coverings and cushions that are dust storers. Room had chips on paint work, no shelf in bathroom (but there were signs of their having been one at some point), cheap pillows, double bed was two single beds pushed together so couldn't spread out and head boards then offset, light in bathroom took ages to come on and when it did not sufficient light for doing make up but probably worst of all was the dirty handprints between the head board and the picture on the wall! On a plus side the linen was clean and good quality although not changed for my four day stay.
There is no wifi in room and it is slow to say the least in the public areas. Things like biscuits and shower gel and soap were not replenished in the rooms each day. I let reception know about lack of soap and I was provided with some shower gel that evening but clearly no message about the soap was passed on to housekeeping.
The one day I wanted to use the pool as the weather wasn't great there was a private party booking so it wasn't accessible to hotel guests. Suggest if that is one of the reasons you are staying here to check availability of the pool first.
I didn't try the restaurant in the evening as I was told on arrival that I couldn't eat from that menu in the bar but breakfast was OK but not worth the £17.95 price tag. The bad area gets very busy and hot on the weekends. If you want to order bar food there are limited chair and table options as most seats are armchairs with coffee tables which may not suit some eaters.
If anyone is staying on the lower levels beware of noise from the rooms above. The floors was so creaky above my room that even with ear plugs I was woken up as people move round (and these were excellent war plugs that cut out all the noise in a busy hospital ward!!).
The only saviour was the weather as it meant I only had to spend minimal time in the hotel and could spend my days out and about on the Isle of Mull enjoying far nicer environments.
