    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.

    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.

    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.

    We stayed here the night before getting on the ferry to Arran & it was perfect. A nice central location, good restaurants nearby, the room was clean and had all the amenities you could want. I highly recommend this B&B.

    There is a sculpture by the staircase of two elephants humping, which some might find off-putting, but it wasn't a problem for me. I have nothing negative to report about this property. Top notch.

    Alistair was a really nice, welcoming and helpful host. The house is bright, friendly, warm and comfortable. The surroundings are lovely - Tarbert is well worth a visit and is the perfect place for preparing an onward journey to Islay or the south of Argyll.

    We arrived fairly late but Alistair was not bothered and was happy to received us. I was running a race and was leaving around 5am, so he allowed me and some other to help ourselves to breakfast, where he had set up everything ready for us. I thought this was fantastic and a great touch. The place is immaculate and Alistair is very warm and helpful. Would recommend this a place to stay!

    Good central location, clean and quiet, good comfy bed. Its on the main road but good windows meant no noise. Alastair the owner is very welcoming and professional and even arranged sunshine for our stay. I like places with separate breakfast tables and Knap has that in a nice bright breakfast room.

    Room was a bit smaller than expected but still perfectly adequate. Some breakfast elements only just cooked enough for us (sausage, bacon, tomato) but nice all the same. Tell Alastair how you prefer yours cooked as im sure he will oblige without hesitation (thats what we will do next time). Note these are very minor constructive points and we would definitely stay again.

    The Knap Guest house is easily the best guest house that I have ever stayed in on the west coast of Scotland and I have been working in this area for over twenty years.
