2018 & 2019 Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests


“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
in the lovely, conveniently situated house… If we were to come back to Tobermory we would definitely want to stay here again.”
MT - Edinburgh, Scotland - November 2018

“Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage.
We have had a great holiday (despite the weather!). House was very clean and well appointed.”
TR - Scotland - October 2018

“Loved it!
Great base.”
DF - October 2018

“Merci pour votre accueil,
tout etait parfait.”
HF & JF - France - September 2018

“We chose your cottage for the location,
and were not disappointed. Fantastic especially when the weather is bad. Very good, clear instructions for everything. Would recommend to others.”
HD & BD - Hexham, England - September 2018

“Just to say thanks for the flat,
it was perfect for us… it was always warm and cosy to come back to. Appreciated all the facilities and the clear instructions on how to work them.”
JW - Yorkshire, England - September 2018

“We’ve had a fabulous stay in Mull.
Brae Back Lodge is a great place and was well equipped for our stay. Having the drying area is great, we also found the books and folders of information very helpful.”
SP - London - September 2018

“My wife and I really enjoyed Back Brae Lodge
and found it a great base for us to explore with our boat from Tobermory. The house was very well presented and lacks for nothing. We will certainly look to book it again.”
AS - Fife, Scotland - August 2018

“Great stay, thanks.
A few more days would have been perfect. Instructions were good and lots of info in the house which was really useful. I’m sure we will be back.”
LA - Greenock, Scotland - August 2018

“We struggle to think
how Back Brae Lodge could be improved. The fact that we were here during the finest week of weather ever experienced north of Hadrian’s Wall (surely?) may influence our opinion but we don’t think so… If we were to be the owners (we wish!) we would add to the already excellent selection of books a copy of Johnson and Boswell’s journals of their tour to the Western Isles, available in an excellent edition from Tackle & Books. But, as I say, we’re struggling. It was a privilege staying here. Thank you!”
July 2018

- no problems at all. As weather was somewhat inclement we found the pulley downstairs particularly useful for our wet walking clothes. We would definitely return to Back Brae Lodge and will recommend to friends and family.”
AD - Bishopton, Scotland - June 2019

I brought my Pilates mat and using space was probably better than most studios. Light upstairs is great. Although a wet week, great house with alternative things to do, and warm. I have stayed in Mull previously with little or no heating - not so charming!”
RA - Larbert, Scotland - June 2019

 “We had a great week.
The accommodation was cleaned to a good standard. Big open plan room with cooking and seating was great. All the communication was excellent.”

Great location, facilities, amenities and management! Very nice to have the second sink in the bedroom and the divider panel in the sitting area.”
FS - California, USA - May 2019

 “This is our second stay here.
We're looking forward to coming back again. Tobermory is very different at this time of year, compared to the Summer months - we relaxed more this time! As usual, a very well-equipped and clean Lodge - lots of little things have been thought of - it's the little details that quite often make the difference, a home from home. Thank you for another enjoyable stay.”
JS & PS - Gillingham, England - May 2019

 “We really loved our stay here.
Everything was lovely. I hope we might come back again before too long.”

 “Thank you for a superb stay.
My best friend stays in Tob and we were over for her 30th birthday party. Back Brae Lodge was perfect in every way for our needs. Our two-year-old boy especially enjoyed running riot in the open plan living area. We felt at home and comfortable here, we particularly enjoyed having Netflix to watch our programmes on an evening. The kingsize bed was extremely comfortable! We cannot think of anything to make our stay any better. Mary was super helpful on the phone when we arrived on a stormy Friday night. We most definitely will be returning.”
C & LF - Scotland - February 2019

 “Back Brae Lodge excellent as usual.
