What’s Included

1, 2 or 3 night Luxury barge stay

Lochside Argyll location

£20 per person dinner allocation

Full Scottish breakfast

Considering a cruise? Bank balance says no? Never mind – we have a maritime trip that is so much lovelier.

Today’s Big Deal offers a taste of the luxury life afloat in the midst of glorious Scottish scenery.

It whisks you to Tarbert in Argyll for a unique stay in a luxury barge. Don’t worry about finding your sea legs – you will stay safely moored, with glorious views across the harbour.

Onboard luxury

Belonging to the Anchor Hotel in Tarbert, the barge is the most luxurious accommodation in this part of Argyll.

The cabin décor features chic furnishings, maritime wood tones and all the modern amenities. These include wet rooms with power showers, Arran Aromatics toiletries, wireless broadband and i-home Bluetooth connective radio/docking station.

This Big Deal is for two people to have a stay in a kingsize double cabin with full Scottish breakfast and a £20 per person dinner allocation.

There are options to stay for one, two or three nights.

Comfort food dishes

All options include a £20 per person dinner allocation on the first night which can be spent in the adjoining Anchor Hotel’s restaurant.

The menu is a collection of comfort food favourites, including steak and ale pie, macaroni cheese and chips and fish and chips.

There are also deals in the restaurant each night on specific dishes like fish and chips and steak which the allocation can be used for.

Out and about

If life aboard inspires the urge to head out to sea, the islands of Islay, Arran or Gigha are a ferry ride away.

This is an historic region with Bruce’s castle in Tarbert, and the beautiful, well-preserved Skipness Castle a few miles to the South. There are even older relics at Kilmartin Glen, with its ancient standing stones.

Whisky aficionados will enjoy tracing the distillery trail around the islands and the Cowal Peninsula.


The Anchor Hotel and Barge have garnered plenty of positive feedback on TripAdvisor, including these reviews, edited for length:

“The surprisingly spacious double “cabin” featured a view over the harbour and the floating room provides changing views of the harbour through your stay with local wildlife from wading birds through swans during our stay. The room also features a spacious walk in wet room style rainfall shower and a selection of Arran Aromatics toiletries. We elected to eat in the hotel which has good range of food including local seafood and reasonably priced wine. Tarbert is a great little harbour town for a weekend trip and the Anchor hotel is a great place to base your visit with the Barge cabins providing a unique twist on the harbour view – highly recommended!”

“Had a weekend at the Anchor Hotel in a room on the barge. Our deal included wine and a delicious tray of petit fours which were very welcome. Great to wake up, open the curtains and see the water right outside the window. The room was lovely, much bigger than you’d expect, very comfy bed and big wet room type shower.”

Argyll escape

Looking for a romantic getaway with a difference? This Big Deal with the Anchor Hotel and Barge offers the perfect solution, providing luxurious onboard accommodation in a beautiful part of the west coast.

Running away to sea has never been more tempting.
