  • "Lovely cottage, clean and in a super location."

    Every comfort provided, amazing bathroom and very comfy bed. If i was really picky i would say a bread bin was needed but thats very picky of me.

  • "Absolutely fantastic cottage."

    Kitchen was fully stocked with all utensils and more. Shower was so luxurious with light and music....could stay in there for hours. Recharge torch for letting dog out at night. Would so recommend this cottage. The owner was so friendly when I rang re key collection and was telling me of walks in area. Highly recommend.

  • "Well equipped cottage in a beautiful setting but unacceptably dirty."

    We had to clean spilt sour milk and dirt from inside the fridge and around the fridge door. We had to empty the lint trap which was packed full of fluff, and the full water collection tub of the condenser tumble dryer. We had to clean the oven rack, frying pan and some cutlery and toaster before use. Also the shower drain because it was clogged up with sludge and hair. The bathroom blinds were filthy (these we didn't clean). Yet when I rang regarding key collection, I was told that the property was having a 'deep clean'. I note that when negative feedback has been given previously the owner turns it back on the reviewer. As we have dogs we have always vacuumed before leaving a holiday let, but not this time, so I expect some comment. We can supply photos if required. There is a blanket ban on any recycling because guests might get it wrong! On a positive note, the towels were brilliant white and fluffy and the jacuzzi bath was gleaming. Free WiFi is a big plus, as is the underfloor heating. Great local dog walks at Fishnish and Garmony.

    I have mobility limitations and the cottage meets my needs because it is easily accessible (although I don't need a wheelchair) It is in an excellent central location on Mull, quiet with amazing views. You even get to watch eagles, buzzards and hen harriers from the garden or sitting on the bench facing the hill side. Many people come back to the cottages time and time again - this was my 4th time and will be back. Donald is very helpful and always responds quickly to any queries

  • "The property, was overall great, water was brown."

    No microwave available as listed. Good property. Mainly clean, asked to strip bed on leaving and asked to put bedding in wash. Thought this was a bit of a cheek. On doing so mattress was stained and so were pillow protectors. Overall facilities were good, well situated.

    Thank you for your comments, and its good to see, that you seem to have enjoyed your stay in poppies cottage. There is a microwave oven in the kitchen above the main oven, the 300w , 600w, 900watt, buttons is a bit of a giveaway that it is also a microwave! There is no obligation for you to strip beds and put a wash on, we only suggest if you have the time and so wish, its very helpful to get a head start for the cleaners as we also leave enough washing powder for your own use through the week, to save you having to purchase a box for one wash. All our bedding is very good quality from Beaumont brown. In this instance, you seem to have only put a wash on, to try and hide the severe stainging left on all the bedding and towels from your Fake sun tan lotion, which had also soaked through and stained the mattress and pillow protectors. The meant to be white towels and bedding came out of the washing machine the same colour as they went in, brown! A 40 degree wash does not remove fake sun tan lotion and we are still in the process 5 days on, of trying to remove the stains. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very cold, reported to the host who advised the under floor heating was on 24 hours a day."

    A thermometer reading in the bathroom was 13⁰c on all days which made using the luxury facilities in the room a little grim. We were advised to use the log burner to increase the temperature which was necessary. Luckily my partner could use the axe to chop the wood for the fire to keep us warm for the week. Other than the temperature, the cottage was clean and had all necessary facilities, was close to all areas of the Isle and is set in a beautiful location. No welcome pack on arrival which I thought was standard with sykes, it does make a nice touch

    Thank you for choosing to stay at Poppies Cottage. We're sorry to hear you found the property cold, when you had contacted ourselves we had explained that the heating will take the property to around 21/22 degrees, lighting the log fire will increase the temperature between 25 degrees and 30 degrees. Once we had made you aware we had received a message from you advising that it was all sorted and cozy. We do not have a thermometer in the bathroom so we are unsure where this reading has come from. All properties run off a geothermal heat pump, we had checked in with other customers in our properties who said everything was great. We supply wood for the log burner that is already chopped, so chopping wood would not have been necessary however would have been happy to assist. It is not a requirement that all Sykes Cottages owners supply welcome packs, and we think the free firewood is more useful to you. We are happy to hear you found the property clean and adequate for your stay Property Owner

  • "Poppies is an extremely comfortable holiday cottage."

    The owner, Donald, was very helpful in that we had an early ferry from Oban and he managed to get the cottage ready and us in before 5pm, as indicated by Sykes. A great utility area as you enter for drying off the dog and getting boots and coats hung up to dry (yes - beautiful Mull gets some rain). Great big kitchen area. The only two things we would say about the kitchen are: a) pots and pans are a little tired and in need of replacement and b) a microwave would be a bonus. Beautiful, relaxing living area with fabulous picture window. We did not require the log burner but I am sure it would be wonderful in colder weather. Super comfy bed and a great bathroom with a lovely large tub. Poppies is near Craignure and Salen with a little bit of a drive to Tobermory but it is ideal for exploring and driving to all parts of the magnificent island of Mull where you will find amazing walks. We will return no doubt.

About the location


  • Tobermory 9 miles
  • Lochdon 12.5 miles
  • Ardalanish 41.5 miles

On the Isle of Mull, the picturesque village of Salen is halfway between the main ferry terminal of Craignure and the island's capital, Tobermory. Salen boasts two hotels, an Italian restaurant and a coffee shop and hosts an agricultural show each summer. In and around Salen you can enjoy mountain biking, pony trekking, walking and bird watching. Salen is the ideal base for exploring this inner Hebridean island, whose highlights include the dramatic scenery of the Gribun rocks on the west coast, the delightful expanse of Calgary Bay and its beach and, of course, Tobermory, most recently used as the setting for the popular BBC children's series 'Balamory'. Tobermory is the main town on the island with a choice of restaurants and shops, a whisky distillery and chocolate factory - all well worth a visit.

Please note: Bookings can only be made with a Saturday check-in and for seven nights.
