2020 to 2023 Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests


 “We have enjoyed our second visit to Tobermory
and have been extremely lucky with the weather. Back Brae Lodge is in an excellent location. The accomodation space is great and the kitchen is well equipped. Also having use of a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher was a bonus.”

for providing such excellent accommodation at such awesome rates. Mull has captured our hearts. We'll be back!”
PD & A - Braemar, Scotland - July 2023

 “Lovely little (though spacious) bolthole in the middle of Tobermory.
Well-equipped, with plenty of instructions for all gadgets etc. Kenny also supplied a lot of useful pre-arrival information, which was very reassuring for a stranger to the area. He even organised a week of great weather!”
FR - Lancashire, England - June 2023

and its location.”

Tobermory has been absolutely fantastic. To be able to stay so close to the town centre as well has been incredible! What a lovely place! The whole house is beautiful and impeccably clean. I have loved my stay here and for a similar price to a hotel room where you only get a bed and a kettle - you can't go wrong. I will definitely stay here again.”
AE - Oswestry, Wales - October 2022

 “Thank you for the stay at Back Brae Lodge.
I would say this has been the best kitted-out accommodation that I have stayed in! The facilities and attention to detail have made us feel very much at home on this beautiful island. The only downside to our stay is that the time passed too quickly. We will definitely be singing your praises to our friends and family.”
K&MN - Camberley, England - October 2022

 “Thank you for lending us your lovely holiday home.
Its central position is so convenient to village activity, yet quiet and peaceful. The Lodge is warm, comfortable and every requirement has been provided for. There was nothing we needed that wasn’t there. We love the way you have designed the area upstairs, utilising every inch indoors and outside.”
RB&EB - Morpeth, England - September 2022

Everything in the Lodge was good. Will be back next year.”

VS - Lake District, England - August 2022

 “We had a lovely stay here, as usual.
Fourth time and definitely coming back. Back Brae Lodge is an extremely well-equipped place to stay, and very clean too. Home from home and close to all amenities. It’s also an excellent base for days out travelling all over Mull, but there are also some lovely walks close by, including Aros Park. Some great pubs and restaurants within close walking distance to Back Brae Lodge. The owner is a great host, approachable and his communication is really good with any helpful information needed. Looking forward to coming back!”
P&JS - Gillingham, England - August 2022

It’s great being so close to shops, harbour and the general hub of things. We have appreciated having a washing machine, tumble dryer, telephone etc and the upstairs layout of the house is light and spacious. Back Brae Lodge is very well equipped. Everything we needed has been here ready to use. It’s like home from home. The whole place was lovely and clean, too. I don’t think you could do anything to improve Back Brae Lodge, you’ve thought of everything. Thank you so much.”

MC & TC - Cambridgeshire, England - June 2022

CP - Co Durham - May 2022

can't think of anything more we could have needed. Lucky enough to have sunshine, so sitting outside in the "rock garden" on two days was great. We had a great stay at Back Brae Lodge, cheers.”

A lovely location right next to the water. Thank you!”
L&G - South Wales - March 2022

 “Had an amazing week on the Isle of Mull
staying at the Back Brae Lodge, excellent location, spotlessly clean, spacious with all the pots, pans, cutlery, glasses etc that you need when staying in holiday accommodation, you literally just need to provide your own food. Definitely would recommend this accommodation and will definitely be back, really didn’t want to come home from this amazing island.”
GM - South Yorkshire, England - March 2022

 “Thank you for a great stay at Back Brae Lodge.
A really good find. As the lodge is set back from the road it was really peaceful and we were not disturbed at any time. The lodge is decorated and equipped to a high standard with loads of space and a really good kitchen. It was such a nice place we were really happy, having had a full day out and about, to stay in our accommodation.”

What a lot of care and thought has obviously been put into Back Brae Lodge, only to be added to by the amazing place Mull is.

Would love to return to Back Brae Lodge.”

As ever, a lovely place to stay - third time, and we'll be back. We feel even more 'at home' in Tobermory now. Very well equipped, clean and tidy.

All the best for things reaching as close to normal seasons for you!”

Loved the lodge and would definitely love to return for a longer stay another time. No complaints, the place was spotless and really well equipped. We especially loved the wee decking area... The location is perfect too, so handy for everything.”
RS - Glasgow, Scotland - September 2020

 “Thank you for having us as guests.
You have been a fantastic and supportive host, responding to everything we have needed.

We have had a lovely break visiting this beautiful island and our accommodation has felt 'home from home'.”
SW & MW - Stockport, England - August 2020

Will recommend.”
JK - Warwickshire, England - August 2020

Weather mixed of course but no surprise there and Wednesday was a beautiful day. The location is ideal - tucked away yet right in the centre. Everything well provided for and the location is ideal. No problems at all with finding things etc. Currently on the return ferry and sorry to be leaving. A very enjoyable few days - I certainly hope to return. Thanks for all your help over the various delays and complications this year.”
GB - Edinburgh, Scotland - August 2020

We have had the most fabulous time here at Back Brae Lodge. You do appear to have thought of everything that a visitor will need and the information guides were very useful. Would love to come back again...”
A & JT - Chester, England - July 2020

 “Thank you for your warm welcome
on our arrival, which was very much appreciated. We have been lucky to experience your beautiful island.”
ND - London, England - March 2020

 “The apartment was clean and well looked-after.
We were very comfortable there. It is well laid out especially if you are doing outdoor activities as we were. The area as you come through the door is a great space for hanging up wet kit and drying it. This keeps all the messy stuff in one area so it doesn't migrate in to other places. The layout upstairs makes excellent use of the space available and has all the facilities you could need. We very much appreciated the easy access to the shops, bars and restaurants on Main Street. We will hopefully return to Mull as there is still lots for us to do and see.”
PW & FW - N Ireland - March 2020
