This was a fantastic place to stay. Friendly and welcoming staff. Super clean, modern, comfortable rooms. Excellent location for ferry 5 min walk. Plus great pub and restaurant right next door. Staff went out of their way to help us in anyway they could to make our visit to Iona memorable

We have stayed here many times - I reviewed the rooms following our last visit in April of 2015. At that time Catherine did a terrific job of looking after the rooms and the breakfasts. She has now moved on, and been replaced by Gill(ian) who it must be said does an equally good job! The small number of recently...

The young girl who met us on arrival and who seemed to be a one man band in relation to the various tasks was so helpful and...

We enjoyed our stay here. It's easy to find. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the B&B hostess. The room was clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. Iona is a beautiful place and if we go back, I'd stay here again.

Upon our arrival we were greeted and shown to our room. The room was, at first, uncomfortably warm from the afternoon sun but opening a couple of windows soon remedied that. The room was clean with some lovely features like woven blankets that I would love to have at home! The restaurant is currently up for sale and closed each...

My wife and I recently stayed three nights at Martyrs Bay Rooms while visiting the Isle of Iona. Martyrs Bay Rooms is not exactly your typical B&B it is a bit more like a small motel (using North American terminology) that is clean and simply presented with no plush extras. The big plus is the location which is mere yards...

It is very easy to find and must be owned by the owners of the shop, bar and restaurant nearby. Friendly staff who were able to provide gluten free options for breakfast. Had good sleep but had to put the heating on as the closed window was not veery good in keeping the heat in....

Stayed 4 nights in mid august. The positives were: friendly and helpful staff, location, comfortable bed, good bathroom/shower, good breakfast. The negatives were: small room with little storage space, no lounge/sitting room (breakfast room wasn't set out for anything but breakfast but could be adapted), no drying room (essential on rainy days - there is a laundry for staff use...
