“Welcomed like one of the family”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Quite simply put if there is a better guesthouse in Britain I would love to see it! Helen has taken standards of cleanliness to a whole new level,everything in the guesthouse and in our room was quite simply gleaming.
This could lead you to think you may be frightened to touch anything but Helen's first class hosting skills ensured we felt entirely at home. As well as being a guesthouse of the highest standard,The Brockville is a family home for Helen,Gordon and their two well mannered children and we were made to feel so welcome we felt like part of the family.Attentive at all times but not over intrusive our hosts could not have done any more in going the extra mile to provide truly exceptional hospitality and a memorable stay. What with homemade chocolate cake,shortbread and a cooked breakfast just as good as it gets we just cant wait to get back to Tobermory to stay at Brockville again!

We recently spent two nights at Brockville and this B&B and Helen upped the bar for us for perfection--it is as near to perfection as you are going to find! Not a five-star of its kind but a five-star all the way!

Helen was out when we arrived (and as we later found out was lost when out on a walk and in a bog!) and left a note for us to help us to find our room. We started to bring our things in and there was Helen insisting on helping us with our bags—then we found out about her misadventure—she was helping us when she needed a hot drink and a bath! What a hostess. She offered us a glass of wine with scrumptious cake and helped to orient us to the town. We had reservations at Café Fish which was very, very good—all I wanted was lobster and did I get it!

Our room was spacious with a comfortable seating area, books, and a TV with an excellent choice of stations (not that we watched a lot of TV) and with beautiful views of the harbor. It is located in a small neighborhood which I always think gives you a better idea of the local area and is about a 5 minute walk downhill to the town center. There were fresh flowers, it was comfortably furnished without a lot of the clutter that one often finds in a B&B, and immaculately clean. We loved the tartan throw on the bed! Helen even provides a mat to dry your boots after walking on the somewhat squishy paths of Mull.

The next morning I requested soft-boiled eggs for breakfast and they were done to perfection (not easy to pull off) along with other delectable morsels—including a yoghurt and fruit concoction with a drop of whisky in it--ambrosia. Helen helped us to decide on a walk from Tobermory to Aros Park—very beautiful—and as has been stated before there were several guide books along with a thermos left in a bag in our room—actually too warm for hot liquids in October—we were blessed with incredible weather while in Tobermory. We had lunch in the local pub after our walk as the day trippers in the coaches had descended on the town and had jammed all of the other places that looked so good—but the pub was very good also (if you want to eat in one of the lovely tearooms/lunchrooms plan to eat a little earlier—IF you have room after the Brockville breakfast) We had dinner at Mishnish per Helen’s suggestion and it was excellent (again I had lobster every bit as good as Café Fish)—and wonders of wonders—we had bought the book “The Tobermory Cat” for our grandson that afternoon and who should wander into the restaurant looking for a warm place to sleep—but the Tobermory cat himself!!

We had an early departure in the morning to meet the earliest ferry (regrettably) and Helen provided us with an enormous continental breakfast including pain au chocolat—the only thing in the world that I can absolutely not resist—how did you know Helen? She included crackers and cheeses for our journey and a thermos with milk for my husband’s cereal—along with a coffee press loaded with coffee and just waiting for the hot water from the kettle.

If you plan to go to Tobermory—and believe me it is beautiful and well worth a visit—reserve a room with Helen at Brockville. You will be glad you did. I only wish we lived closer—we would be back soon.

Room Tip: There is not a bad room to be found.

Everything in this B&B is more than expected. Helen is a fantastic hostess who can help you with anything you need. Maps, books (even DVDs to watch in your room) with details on sightseeing, wild life, paths etc are provided and of course Helen can suggest the perfect walk according to your needs. Even Tobermory restaurant menus are provided and Helen can book your table for dinner. The room was spacious and warm as well as the bathroom where you could find whatever you may have forgotten back home for your personal needs. The room was getting cleaned everyday and Helen was always leaving something new for us.. flowers, chocolate, wine, cookies... The breakfast is excellent and Helen prepared for us a lovely lunch pack for our travel back since we did not have time to have full breakfast on our last day there.

We had a fantastic four days in Brockville. A lovely spacious room with fabulous views across the mountains and water with a modern and comfortable style and an excellent en-suite. Helen is a marvellous hostess, providing helpful advice, offering lots of little extras (glasses of wine, home-made cake, drying clothes etc.) and integrating guests into her warm family life. Nothing was too much trouble to make our stay as memorable as possible, helping us to experience the full range of Mull's breathtaking scenery and wildlife. We're already planning our next visit!

Thank you Helen and Gordon for such a comfortable, restful stay with you. Everything was excellent, we wanted for nothing. Our room was spacious, with extra space for sitting comfortably at the end of the day. A most appreciated touch was the cake to welcome us home. We will certainly be back as two nights were not nearly enough.

Helen and Gordon manage a first class bed & breakfast. Everything was perfect, with the tiniest details and needs anticipated. Our room was spacious, with extra space for sitting comfortably at the end of the day to sort out our photos of beautiful Mull! The food was delicious. Helen and Gordon were very helpful, suggesting highlights that could not be missed, arranging restaurant reservations and connecting us with local people interested in family history one the reasons for our visit.

We recently spent part of our honeymoon exploring Mull and we were fortunately able to get a room at Brockville. Helen and Gordon are incredibly welcoming and provided a bottle of bubbly for our room to celebrate. Helen offered to book us a table at Cafe Fish while we settled in to our room and was on hand to give us recommendations of what to do during our short stay. We took her advice and walked the Ardmore trail through the forest and were lucky enough to spot a Golden Eagle circling above us and glimpsed a Sea Eagle too. All in all, a wonderful stay made all the better thanks to Helen.
