Some slight road noise
facilities comfort and ambience great--very claen and comfy, breakfast choice and cooking superb,
dormer wondows mean no view unless sitting next to them (which only one person can do). At corner in road so traffic noise
Location. Comfort. Cleanliness. Breakfast. Good host.
Being made to feel welcome.
Enjoyed everything, the Landlord was great, the room was great, the breakfast was the best in a long while..loved it and would be delighted to return, anytime.
The one thing I really did not like was having to check out! I wish I could have stayed longer.
Located perfectly in the pretty idealic waterside village of Tarbert, we found our host to be extremely friendly and helpful with the accommodation perfectly suitable for our one night stop on the way to Isle of Islay. Good value for money and worth recommending as a spot to stay.
everything was good the wecoming was really nice
Attention to details which many other places (including good hotels!) do not aspire to. A quality B&B run by someone who knows the business!
Because the property is 'on the street' it is lacking convenient car parking space. But that is not a reason not to stay!
great host easy to get along with does a excellent breakfast and a lot of little touches made knap a great place stay will be back
There's a wonderful smell in this house! And the dining with view of the gourmet chef kitchen is sophisticated.
Liked, indeed, loved everything!
Goes out of his way to be helpful
Comfortable, clean room Excellent breakfast So convenient for Tarbert and Islay ferry
The welcome is always warm. The standards are very high , the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is delicious there is lots of choice. We stay at the Knap when travelling to and from Islay to break our journey and recharge our batteries before the long drive home.It is good value for money and nothing is too much trouble.Will be stopping there again.
View of Tarbert harbour from the room.
The friendliness of our host and the village people, beautiful location, and of course the Stornoway black pudding served at breakfast and available to purchase from the local butchers, which we did to take home!
Very helpful and polite owner.
Large comfy lounge. Supper breakfast. Helpful informed owner.
Parking is on the street.
Mine host was superb. The room was perfect .
Parking was the only problem
As probably most of the guests, we stayed one night only, to get on the next day ferry (to Islay in our case) What we liked: The warm welcome by the owner The decorations The living room The surroundings
I honestly did not have something to criticise. Everything in Scotland is very expensive compared to the rest of the world, so one could say that the price is too high for the place, BUT it was actually one of the cheapest places in Scotland :)
Alistair is the perfect host. The guest house is right at the harbour & handy to all amenities. He recommended a great restaurant called starfish for dinner. Couldn't have done anymore for us and the guesthouse itself is beautiful inside.
We are a couple but not that young or mature!! Loved the place, Alastair was great, all perfect thanks, even the weather!
Very professional set up
The location of Knap guest house is fabulous. I loved the fact that Alistair has paid such attention to detail, down to the fact that the room we were in had dressing gowns, complimentary tea, coffee and water and that wee extra touches such as sweets in the room. The rooms are beautifully and tastefully decorated and I don't imagine anything would be too much trouble. Alistair makes a great breakfast right in front of you, no behind the scenes as the dining room and kitchen are in full view of each other. The choices are extensive. I don't think I would stay anywhere else in Tarbet and can see why he's constantly busy. Looking forward to a return visit.
Alistair is an excellent host. Breakfast very tasty -room comfortable.
A bit noisy , as located on main road , but to be expected.
Very well furnished and extremely friendly right in the centre of town.
