“Upper thornliebank is a great flat”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in July 2014

I first booked this flat in September 2012 and spent a week there with my sister and nephew who was then four. We went again in July 2014 and my mum joined us for a couple of days
The photos don't do it justice. The flat has breath-taking views and is decorated beautifully.

All of the rooms are generously sized, and it is really great if travelling with children that there are toys / DVD`s in the front room and in the seating area in the back garden. It is spotlessly clean while also retaining a feeling of "home" from home.
I know my nephew loved sleeping in the bed beside the window in the twin room, where he could see Tobermory harbour from bed.
The bath has an overhead shower which is great.

I highly recommend upper thornliebank to anyone considering visiting Tobermory. It is very central for visiting the village, or for walking / getting buses further afield (to Calgary bay, Dervaig, etc).

We are actually in the flat now half way through our holiday. This has to be the best property in Tobermory. The views are stunning, the flat is very roomy, very clean, bed is very comfortable in fact everything you need and more is here. Nikki is very helpful and replies straight away to booking enquiries and queries.
We would recommend it to anybody staying in Tobermory. So much more relaxing than a b&b There is a eel small garden with a covered area faith a dining table and chairs for eating or sitting out so you don't feel you are stuck in the flat although it is plenty big enough not to be cramped at all. Perfect.

“Lovely stay at Upper Thorniebank”

This is a super flat with gorgeous views of lovely Tobermory harbour. The accommodation is extremely comfortable with everything we needed for a great stay - we especially liked the well appointed kitchen, nice bathroom and comfortable bed.
The flat is up quite a steep staircase and it's a steep walk up from the town centre too which might not suit everyone but didn't bother us.
Nikki was very welcoming and helpful.

“A great base to see Mull”
Reviewed 18 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

We loved our stay. The photographs do not do the property justice - the front windows have a picture postcard of Tobermory, We also like the fact that the front window could be seen from Main Street.

We visited all of Mull during our brief stay but appreciated the comforts that we could come back to each evening including the wood burning heater and the large and well-appointed kitchen.

“Tobermory Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The website does not do this aprtment justice. The property sits at the top of the tallest house on the hill above Tobermory Main Street with outstanding views across the harbour & bay. Easy access to Main Street via several routes from Argyll Terrace. The property itself is far larger than appears online & is finished to a very high standard. Easy parking right outside & own front door. A fantastic base to explore Mull & the surrounding islands.
