Superb quality accommodation, a friendly welcome, good food, situated overlooking Tobermory Bay. I don't think I've had a better view from a bedroom window! Absolutely recommended. Tea and home made cake at teatime was a lovely extra touch. Book in advance though else you won't get in. Also book Café Fish for dinner - the best fish restaurant ever. And unusually completely unpretentious!

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the bay.

Amazing house with spectacular views and grounds just a short walk from Tobermory Main Street. The rooms were spacious and well maintained with beautiful furniture and fittings which added something special to the look and feel of the house. The breakfast was fantastic! Adrian and Jane were a lovely couple, very attentive and happy to help out in any way. I'd highly recommend staying at Strongarbh! It made our Mull experience so much more special!

This is a beautiful house in an amazing location that lets you soak up the views over Tobermory and the hills beyond. It is a little tricky to find and there is a hairpin bend to negotiate but it is well worth it! The delicious breakfasts were lovingly prepared and were the best we have ever had in many years of travelling. There was a great choice with a "special" each day as well. The bedroom was very large and the furniture was stylish. There were lots of great touches such as fresh milk available from a fridge on the landing , a fresh bottle of water each day, an i pad to use for local info and many more. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and liked the short cut path to Tobermory which meant we did not have to drive although the climb back was tough on the knees !We would happily recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Mull.

Room Tip: Ask for room 1 or 2 with the most amazing views .

This is a lovely house, high above the main street of Tobermory, with lovely grounds, and great views of the harbor. Our hosts, Jane and Adrian, were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was always a treat as we tried most items on the menu. or the specials, during our 5 night stay. The modern touches in the decor serve to highlight the traditional features of the house. It's beautifully done.
We frequently had afternoon tea outside overlooking the harbor. Jane's teas were always something to look forward to.
We arrived in Tobermory without a car. It's quite a climb up the hill to the house. For the not so able-bodied, it might be a bit much. We decided the climb was probably good for us and the reward was a delightful stay at Strongarbh House.

A beautiful house with generous hosts. We stayed in the most basic room I think but it was lovely! great breakfasts, wonderful view and tea with cake in the afternoon. Really decent showers, iPads in the rooms and decent wifi ... and now need to find an excuse to travel all the way there agin from London, now that we have walked up Ben More! If you are going to Tobernory, don't stay anywhere else.

This is a fantastic B&B in a stunning location in Tobermory. The rooms are extremely comfortable with lots of great touches - ipad in room, excellent wifi, coffee maker, cold water from the fridge. The house retains many traditional features which is cleverly combined with modern touches and lovely décor. Afternoon tea was also a nice addition, especially after being out for a long walk! The house is beautiful and has wonderful views over Tobermory harbour and is only a short walk down the hill to the main street.

The breakfasts are excellent with a great variety to suit all tastes, each day there is a different special. The bacon is excellent!!

The atmosphere is relaxed and hosts are very friendly. I would have no hesitation in staying here again, or recommending to others. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back!

Excellent accommodation, situation and welcome. This is the second time we have stayed here in this hidden gem and would highly recommend it. From the welcoming afternoon tea and strawberry meringue on arrival to the delicious breakfast, we have nothing but praise for our overnight stay in Strongarbh House. Thank you Jane and Adrian!
