I had a group of 6 American whisky nuts staying here in April. The hotel manager went out of her way to accommodate the group when it looked like there wouldn't be enough room. The hotel is clean, well decorated and offers excellent value for money.

We stayed here several nights as party of 5.Rooms were nice with comfortable bed and big bathroom with great shower. View of water was so peaceful. Staff were very friendly. Bar great with huge selection of whiskies and nice breakfast included with room. Could even get full Scottish breakfast. Great location to small town and Bowmore distillery.

This place was recommended for food. The fish and chips were amazing. Big portions and not expensive at all. Great seating and stunning views across the loch. Would recommend this place to eat. Can park outside the building.

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.
