Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests
- all you need for a relaxing stay.”
“We loved staying at Back Brae Lodge again
and can't think of anything that could be improved. It really is a great little place and spot. We'll be back if you'll have us...”
“Have had lovely few days here,
just about to leave. Wish we could stay longer... Just to say would happily return. Lodge very well equipped, clean and tidy.”
“Thank you for a lovely stay in very comfortable place.
We had a wonderful few days here. A perfect place for a few days of real holiday - thank you.”
“The accommodation has been great.
Comfortable and clean. Hope to return.”
“Thank you for an amazing stay
on this fantastic island!”
“We had a good holiday.
The house is in a great location and very practical. It has everything needed for self catering and the small additions like dishwasher tablets take away the hassle. The upstairs space is amazing - when are you having the next party?! It is very comfortable with loads of good books and maps, also DVDs for the occasional rainy days. On those wet days the entrance lobby is perfect with the tiled floor and plenty of hooks and space for drying the gear. We hope to be back soon.”
“Very well equipped.
Thanks for the welcome pack, nice touch! We enjoyed our stay.”
“This is our second visit to Back Brae Lodge
... which we really love. Beautifully designed and appointed. Thanks for a lovely stay!”
“Just to thank you for the excellent accommodation
at Back Brae Lodge. It was perfect for us and the welcome pack was a particularly nice touch! It was great that the weather was so much better than forecast - sun all three days.”
Mull & Tobermory Restaurant & Activity Reviews
“We were lucky with amazing weather
and loved visiting the stunning scenery and wildlife Mull has to offer. Would especially recommend the seafood at Cafe Fish on the harbour, and Langamull beach and Calgary bay.”
“It was great to have so much information about the local area.
We were able to use a couple of the walk suggestions despite the snow, hail and rain! A lot of places in Tobermory weren't open because of the time of year, but we had a really nice lunch in front of the fire at An Tobar.”
“We had two great walks
and we particularly appreciated the maps. We'd like to explore more of Mull on foot and/or bike. ”
“Tobermory was lovely
and had everything we needed. We loved our stay on Mull and saw four otters at Calgary Bay.”
“We loved the lighthouse walk
and in fact did this numerous times in all sorts of weather, also Aros Park which we found lovely. We loved the fact that we could park the car and just leave it. We did go to Calgary Beach which was amazing, and we had a fantastic walk there too. The scenery and drive there is absolutely breathtaking. The little arts and crafts studio and cafe there is fantastic with a great choice of food and lovely friendly staff. We were disappointed that the Tobermory Distillery was closed but what a wonderful job the workmen were doing to complete it. We did a lot of fishing and caught mackerel which were delicious. Fantastic to see a cinema bus visits as well. MacGochan's Restaurant and bar was superb, we spent many an evening there by their lovely log burner, then strolled back to the Mishnish for a last drink. We didn't eat out a lot but did go to the bakery for breakfast once and that was lovely, Cupan did a lovely lunch as well. One thing that I found very disappointing and was quite surprised by really, my daughter fancied some chips one evening so we walked along to the fish van, expecting to get some delicious proper chips to find that they were oven chips deep fried - definitely not proper chips! I hope all the people from around the world don't think they are our proper chips! I think the only other thing I would request to alter if I could would be the opening hours of the cafes, I think they should be open for longer in the evenings. The holiday was relaxing, the views amazing, people lovely.”
“It wasn’t our first time at Tobermory
so we knew the area a bit. While we were there we did some tremendous walks around the North Mull Coast which was beautiful, and Ulva where we had a close encounter with a pair of sea eagles. We enjoyed really excellent trips, one with the Sea Life Centre on wild life cruise, where we saw whales, basking sharks, porpoises and a whole pod of dolphins leaping around. The second was with Turus Mara to Staffa, which was great. It was a tremendous week with a couple of super meals out (Cafe Fish and The Western Isles).”
“We had a really good week.
With the British weather it is so hard to determine what the weather is going to be like from one day to the next! We stayed in Tobermory in November, so knew our way round a little bit already, but wanted to return as some of the restaurants were closed and there were no boat/RSPB trips running at that time. Numerous walks to Loch Frisa, up Speinne Mor and the lighthouse. This time we ate in Cafe Fish three times - the food is AMAZING and the staff are lovely too. We managed to do the RSPB trip, which was great and saw two sea eagles. Well worth doing and it's only £8 each. We booked a 2-hour boat trip but unfortunately this had to be cancelled because there were insufficient people booked on for it to run. Fish and chip van - yummy!”
“Facilities in Tobermory were great,
we had fish and chips from the quay the first night, catered from the Co-Op and Tobermory Bakery on two nights and treated ourselves to the Western Isles Hotel one evening. Mull overall was a great location, fabulous scenery, very kind and helpful people and the wildlife great - eagles and otters. We were also pleased that you had ordered such good weather for us - we barely saw any rain in 12 days and were at no time beaten off doing anything by the weather. We cycled about 100 miles and walked over 50 during our stay on the island.”
“The weather was excellent.
We took a boat trip to Staffa and Lunga on a Sunday and the conditions were ideal. A wonderful weekend.”
“Finally made to Iona
after two previous attempts, truly wonderful place. Love Mull, so many similarities with my other favourite spot, Connemara.”
