Very nice quant place to stay. A good bar, with a good selection of local Islay's Scotch whisky's and nice restaurant good food, with Scottish flayer. The Inn Keepers went out of their way to help us with a punctured tire. We'd been very stuck without their help. The rental car emergency service was useless.

We didn't stay in the hotel but had lunch in the restaurant and the meal was excellent. Many good choices on the menu from burgers to full meals. Friendly waitress. Good sized portions. Free wifi which is always a bonus inthese areas.

I was traveling to Islay for an overnight stay for work purposes. The building is very nice, particularly the interior, modern and clean. I was greeted at reception by a very engaging and attentive staff member who took me though everything and even showed me round the room - a nice touch. The room was small but I have not...

We stayed one night DBB courtesy of FlyBe as a result of their cancelling our afternoon flight to Glasgow.

The...
