“A review that's not a review”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We didn't stay at the hotel, nor did I eat at the hotel....
We were camping on the nearby airfield, probably 15 microlights, and were fogged in. The hotel owners did a breakfast and shower deal for £10 (particularly welcome) and those that ate in the evening had no complaints about the food. \the breakfast was not huge, and lacking toast, but the quality was outstanding
Coffee at £2.20 for a cafetier is not cheap, nor is the food, but given that it's a hotel and on Mull nor is it expensive. The landlord and landlady never showed any sign of irritation at a bunch of pilots clogging their lounge and using their loo, and were very pleasant. The landlady has a somewhat dry sense of humour and demeanour but never approaching indifferent or rude.
Other guests that we met were repeat visitors which pretty much says it all.
I will be taking my wife to stay there next year

A beautiful hotel with a gorgeous view out over the Sound of Mull. We stayed over at the end of May for 4 nights and have previously visited and stayed here in 2010. The room we stayed in was lovely, spacious and warm with a large en suite. We loved eating in the restarurant and bar, the food was delicious! Within the hotel is a large lounge area with a brilliant view. There are lots of comfortable seats and a television, magazines etc. The hosts were helpful and there was a large selection of breakfast available. The only downside is there is no tele in the room but other than that we would definitely stay here again.

If you don't mind being ripped off, being overcharged at the bar and generally being given a poor welcoming this hotel could be the one for you. The owners clearly have had little experience in being hoteliers.

Room Tip: I wouldn't bother

We stayed at the Glenforsa for 3 nights, its in a lovely, peaceful location but good centrally for exploring the rest of the island. Our room was spotlessly clean, with plenty of space and a lovely view. The staff were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay even easier by offering us a packed lunch when we went to Iona for the day, a very nice touch. The bar meals are very reasonably priced with generous portions and the Scottish breakfast is delicious! A lovely place to stay and I would definitely recommend and return.

We were wet and cold after a visit to Iona, and had a two hour wait to catch the ferry back to Oban. We decided to go looking for food. Eight of us arrived at the Hotel, and they couldn't have been more helpful. We needed to be fed and on our way within an hour and we were served the most delicious fish, crunchy light batter, and beautifully cooked fish, and homemade chips. Thank you for your kindness and efficiency.

We stayed a few days in one of the lodges at Glenforsa hotel, we found it to be comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was very good and the staff were very helpful in organising a boat trip for us with one of the local tour boats. Overall a lovely place to stay and we will definitely return.

A group of us on a motorcycle tour of Scotland stayed for two nights at the Glenforsa Hotel to tour Mull and Iona, The hotel room was pretty basic but OK and comfortable. The location was great for an enjoyable ride to the ferry to Iona, and taking a tour around the island. The food was very good but would have liked to have haggis on the menu. Drinks were a little pricey but not too bad and they produced a fantastic birthday cake for one of our party. Overall a nice stay at a good hotel.
