“Great food and service”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

We went here on a groupon so it was good value for money. Really great home cooked food, all bread and deserts baked on premises. Great breakfast with quality ingredients. Only slight down side was our bathroom was not as clean as it could have been, the toilet seat was dirty. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Tarbert again.

This wonderful hotel and it's staff saved our wedding day. We had been let down by the man we hired to chef for us - Ryan Glen - on the day of our wedding he didn't show. Leaving us 6 hours to organize food for 25 people. Thankfully James at the Anchor was willing to help and really did an amazing job. Everyone was so helpful and the food was brilliant - everything was so nicely cooked and the staff were so friendly.
We cannot thank James and the staff at The Anchor enough for rescuing our day and turning a negative into a huge positive. We plan to stay at The Anchor any time we are up travelling up that way - truly wonderful.

We had room 1, with a nice view over the bay, but rather cramped ... and with almost no sound insulation: you hear every word in the next room ..
BUT: dinner in the restaurant was perfect, with excellent Fyne Seafood.
And both pubs (on the right and left side of the hotel) are worth the visit.

On reading the review below, I was on the same night out and disagree. We are all entitled to our opinion, however Amanda seems to have been on a different night out. The food was lovely, and the service was satisfactory. The staff were very busy as they were catering for Christmas Nights out. All in all it was a really nice night out. I thought we all ate drank and were very merry. I would recommend the Anchor for good food and a nice atmosphere.

Just home from a three night stay and would highly recommend this small comfortable hotel with an excellent restaurant.

The room was small but very comfortable, very comfy bed, nice bathroom with good toiletries and big towels. Great view of the harbour and although it was a bit noisy when the Christmas nights out finished we had been warned about this and didn't find it a problem.

Great breakfast and the two meals we ate in the restaurant were excellent. All in all a great weekend and one we hope to repeat.

I stayed for one night this week at the hotel. I was due to have a working dinner with 4 Norwegians who were also staying. We ordered our dinner at about 1920 and at 1930 the electricity went off before our meal was ready. We decided to wait until 2000 to see if the lights came back on before we made a decision as to what to do. At 1950 we took up the offer of a seafood platter and a selection of Scottish cheeses. This was all prepared by candlelight and was truly delicious. We all agreed that if this item had been on the menu then we all would have eaten it. Ironically I can recommend a power cut to other guests as the service was wonderful.

Room Tip: Choose one over looking the harbour

First visit since makeover several years ago - what a difference. Rooms nicely decorated but on small side although they can't do anything about that. Breakfast very good and service throughout stay was good. Would have given five stars but for some basic housekeeping issues in both bedrooms our party stayed in. Would be happy to return.
