Struan House is a centrally located and safe choice for accommodation in Tarbert. The room provided all that was needed for an overnight in Tarbert. Good location in the centre of town. Clean room, good bathroom and ample breakfast served in their restaurant.

I stayed at Struan House one night in mid-September on the way to the Isle of Arran. Although the owners were away for the afternoon, they made sure a key to the premises was available to me. The b&b is situated right on Tarbert's harbor with a close-up view of the fishing boats. When I arrived during the afternoon, a music...

Stayed here 3 nights. Would recommend this B and B to anybody. Warm and homely. Good hearty breakfast cooked by John! Perfect position for watching the boats coming in and out of the harbour. Good seafood restaurants within minutes walk. Cant say a bad thing about this hotel.

We stayed at Struan House for one night. The reason for choosing this B&B was the short distance to Kennacraig Ferry Terminal, where we boarded the Islay ferry on the next day. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed and shown our rooms. The double room "Arran" was fairly large, beautifully furnished with sweet details like books on a shelf, flowers...

I stayed here on the 10th September and John and kirtsen were excellent hosts. Kirsten had emailed me earlier to confirm details of my arrival and I received a warm welcome. I ate in the ground floor bistro - had a superb sea food pizza and in the morning had to leave before breakfast and so was left a 'packed'...

Stayed here for one night during a cycling trip. John kindly assisted us put our bikes in a secure storage area. Although we had not given an exact arrival time john and Kirsten were waiting on us. The rooms were immaculate with tea/coffee making facilities. The rooms were not en-suite but we had a private bathroom. The views of the...

My husband booked up this Guest House online since we were catching the mid morning ferry to Islay. From the outset of booking Kirsten was more than helpful, from emailing us back to make sure that we had the correct Tarbert to suggesting we might wish to book a table in their restaurant (Scotts) since they are open to be...

This guest house has its own restaurant and is located right next to the harbour. It was easy to find and has parking right outside. The welcome from the owners was very warm and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast choices were advised the night before so a freshly cooked breakfast was ready at the time I requested. Although I...

We stayed here, as many do, on our way to catch a ferry to Islay. The room was cute, comfy and clean. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating (as others have said, they don't live on site, but they made every effort to find out what time we would be arriving and be there to greet us - it...

On the plus side, the hotel is in an attractive location right on the harbor in Tarbert. Our room was nicely furnished and looked out over the harbor. The host was friendly and breakfast quite good (and served in time for us to catch the ferry to Islay.) On the minus side, we had to call a number and wait...

Thank you for describing our property as quaint and atmospheric. It is a lovely harbour side property. If I may clarify a couple of points. This is a typical B&B and not a hotel so if we are in the village or out walking the number on the door is for the quest to call us if they arrive at...
