As the waters around our hotel are renowned for the quality of their seafood, we have established close links with local fishermen and fish farms.
We work with local organic farms to source seasonal soft fruits and vegetables - and artisan producers of cheese to bring together the best of the area and the season in creative dishes for our menus.
As winners of BBC’s Food and Farming, Best Scottish Cheese Award and triumphing with Gold at the World Cheese Awards, a visit to the Isle of Mull Cheese Farm is a must on your quest to sample the island’s best produce. The farm is owned and run by Chris and Jeff Read, who work off the simple philosophy of focusing on quality over profit. The Isle of Mull Cheese Farm is located just outside Tobermory, and the Read’s welcome visitors to witness the award-winning cheese process.

Tipping Our Team
Most of our guests now prefer to pay via debit or credit card and be able to include a service charge for great service. To make this easier we have added an automatic service charge - we’ve made it a default 10% which you can change to any percentage you wish, including no service charge.
Our teams have always shared service charges and this is no different - every penny you give is shared equally by our teams through our “Fair Fund”. There is no administration cost and nothing is retained by the company, 100% of what you give is guaranteed to go to our team.
Service charge is entirely optional, if you would like us to remove it, you need only ask.
