“Peace and quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

If you're looking for a quiet place in a beautiful area, you found one. It was one of the best sleeps in my life, it's so quiet because of the hills and the air is so fresh! The b&b is located on the coast from one side and hills on the other. There are sheep and dogs on the territory, they are friendly and not afraid of people, you open a window in the morning and here they are looking at you :)) made my day!
The staff is very helpful, so if you've got any questions about the roads or anyhing else, you can ask. They booked a tour to Staffa island for us (highly recommended) and gave me a british plug adaptor, cause I forgot to take mine.
There is a TV in the room with DVD's and a big TV in the sitting area, but there are so many interesting spots on the island, you don't want to spend time on the couch. World cup is an exception :)
If you're looking for a place to stay for couple of nights or more, that's the perfect one.

We stayed a couple of nights at the end of a week long holiday on another part of Mull on a very windy weekend at the end of October. Other than us the only other residents were a group of workmen. Whilst pleasant they were somewhat noisy in the early hours when they returned from a night in Tobermory.
Other than that the experience was wholly positive. The room (ensuite) was large and clean. The communal kitchen and living room was modern and well equipped. Would we stay again - yes but hopefully it will be a bit quieter.

Great clean and comfy lodge with a variety of sized bedrooms, some ensuite.
Great communal space downstairs with plenty of storage, fridge and cooking utensils.
Easy to find and get round the island. Amazing views all over the island.
Thoroughly recommend Tobermory for seeing in the bells. Good company and fireworks and dancing on the pier.
Will definitely come back and do Ben More when the weather is better.

Our overnight stay was very good.
The lodge is well equipped with an expansive kitchen/dining room/lounge for use by all guests.
The views from the lodge over the loch and to the hills beyond were very restful.
Plenty of walks to do nearby and the hosts were helpful with local information.
The bedroom was comfortable with ensuite facility.
The lodge location not far from the ferry terminal is handy if you want an overnight stay before you explore the rest of Mull and surrounding islands.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Arle Lodge. It was outstanding value, with comfortable rooms and excellent showers. The large kitchen, lounge and dining area offer all that is needed to stay in comfort without having to eat out. If the weather is poor, there are plenty of games to play and books to read, as well as a big tv for entertainment. Alternatively, just enjoy the views out of the large windows - they are quite splendid!

The owners are friendly and we would not hesitate to return to this excellent lodge.

During my journey through Scotland, I have passed by a lot of guest houses and B&B on the road side, and I was thinking, maybe one of the ones I have booked are like that.  This one is like that.  Arle lodge is right on the road side, and if you drive too fast, you will see the sign, but not enough time to stop and turn in.
It is next to the loch and has a very beautiful view.  Isle of mull is not that big, the lodge is near to tobermory, quite convenient to drive to, just one straight road.
The reception staffs are nice.  Although there isn't much that they need to do for us, they acted very friendly when we check in.  Because most of the services are self service, a lot of great signage and info are put up on the wall and common area.  Everything is labelled nicely. The kitchen and lounge area is great.  The kitchen is well equipped.  The lounge area is filled with books, games, puzzles, DVDs and a TV.  The rooms are very cozy, and it definitely has a home feel to it.  If you like to watch TV at night, there is none in the room.  I don't watch TV, so that fits me. Me, my brother and my parents altogether had two twin rooms.  My parents had a room that is more spacious then ours.  Their toilets are big! You could hold a party in there.  Our room and toilet is a bit smaller, but still quite spacious.  Everything is clean, you can smell the freshness of the bed sheets.  Beds are quite comfortable.  They paid attention to details in the room, and a lot of storage space was provided.
The outside area is great as well, very nice view and great value for the price we paid.  Unfortunately, there were a noisy gang of guys chit chatting next to the room next to ours in the middle of the night.  They probably haven't even close their doors, and were speaking and laughing loudly and rudely.  It is totally not the lodge's fault, but it did ruin our night a little.
