Message from the Owners of the Western Isles Hotel

Along with all the Mull businesses that make the island a very special destination place for visitors, we at the Western Isles Hotel were eagerly looking forward to the 2020 season, with three new superior rooms to offer, 14 new bathrooms, a lift, and a host of other improvements. Now the Coronavirus has forced us all to look inwards at protecting our community. This weekend we are staying open to accommodate people doing essential work in the village, but on Tuesday we will close until the Government advises that it is safe to reopen.

It is sad, but it is what it is and it is up to us all to make the best of it. We are determined to keep our staff, who have done so much over the past four years to elevate the hotel’s reputation for quality and service, so that when we do reopen it will be with all guns blazing.

Our live-in staff, unless they choose otherwise, will remain in their on-site accommodation and be fed from our kitchens until the pandemic is over. Those who live off-site will be given all the help we can offer to see them through the crisis. The Western Isles hotel family wishes everyone on the island a safe passage through the crisis and for our guests the warmest of welcomes awaits you here once it is past.

The Western Isles Hotel

In an age of standardisation and uniformity, The Western Isles stands out as an individual, a grand old lady looking out imperiously from her headland over Tobermory village, harbour and bay to the Sound of Mull and mainland Scotland beyond, as she has done for nearly 150 years.Read more >>
