Unparalleled views of the bay and Castle Stalker. The balcony was by far the highlight of the property. Rooms were very comfortable and the suite was very spacious and beautiful. The hearty Scottish breakfast, including the warm bagels and croissants were all delicious. Mike went above and beyond to make our stay more pleasant. All in all, a place we would definitely and come back!

Return Visit - Rating 5/5

This was my second stay at 'Appin Bay View'.Having been my base for an exploration of the highlands by motorcycle last year I returned for a walking holiday with my wife this year.It is perfectly located for boat trips from Oban to Mull and Iona, and walking in Glencoe, Fort William and Mallaig.The view from the balcony is unforgettable.Mike is a great host giving good advice on the local area, day trips and eating out. His Scottish breakfast sets you up for the day but the Thai breakfast is not to be missed.

Appin Bay View - Rating 5/5

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time at Appin Bay View Guest House.Mike was an absolute gent of a host, giving tips for local places to go and offering to make dinner reservations for us. The cooked breakfast was fantastic.Obviously the view is fabulous, but the house is very near to great local places to eat and drink as well as being only a short drive from Glencoe.Couldn't recommend highly enough!

Reviewer:Stephen N | Tue 25th Jun 2019 | 1 year ago

Excellent - Rating 5/5

Spent two nights in Appin Bay View in the middle of June in one of the rooms at the front of the property with full sea view. The location of the property is stunning and, even though our weather wasn’t as good as we had hoped, we still benefitted from sitting in the evenings with a drink admiring the views. An added benefit is that it’s only a short walk to the Old Inn where we had dinner on both evenings. Our room was very comfortably finished and there is a great, freshly cooked, breakfast included which set us up for the day. Our host, Mike, was always on hand to help out and nothing was too much trouble - from dining reservations through to chilling a bottle of Prosecco for us in his fridge. There are only five rooms in the property which gives a level of intimacy and personal touch without ever feeling over bearing. We have stayed in the Port Appin/ Appin area before but this was our first time at this property - we will definitely be back.

Fantastic! - Rating 5/5

We booked the Appin Bay View for two nights and were extremely glad we did. There was nothing we could fault, from the beautiful room with a view that changed every five minutes with the light, the wonderful breakfast, the warm hospitality from Mike and his family, to the best steaks I have eaten at The Old Inn, (five minute walk). I would highly recommend and will return very soon.

I have just spent 5 glorious days at Appin Bay View. A superior guest house with 5 star quality from the beds to the breakfasts. The attention to detail is second to none, with South East Asian influences in the decor and furnishings. The host is well-travelled, extremely hospitable, humorous, and a fount of local knowledge. He makes everything special and goes out of his way to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.
