Good Hotel Guide Review

Famous distilleries, ‘lovely walking trails’ and trout-rich lochs are within easy reach of this traditional Scottish country hotel, an Islay fixture for over 150 years. A traditional welcome too. ‘Staff could not have been more helpful or positive,’ writes a reader in 2018. Morrison tartan – the family owns the Islay Estates, including the hotel – carpets the lounge with its open fire and home-baked treats, while Kate’s bar, ‘clearly enjoyed by people other than guests’, has peaty Islay malts, island ales and The Botanist gin, distilled nearby. In the dining room, its wall hung with coastal landscapes, chef Scott Chance’s ‘superb, largely locally sourced’ food has meat and game from the estate, shellfish from the surrounding ocean. A typical dish: medallions of Islay estate venison, venison faggot, truffle croquet, woodland mushroom, parsnip, woodland berry sauce. More casual bites are available in the bar. The light, bright, bedrooms are individually decorated with touches of tartan and florals, all bathrooms have island toiletries; ‘the old, solid walls prevented any noise from other rooms.’ Breakfast includes smoked haddock, poached egg, a Loch Fyne kipper. ‘We hope to return.’

Guest comments

'From check-in to check-out, the staff could not have been more helpful or positive. They have clearly thought through their guests' comfort. Cari Anne is fabulous and so are the staff in the dining room. This hotel is centrally located on Islay making it easy to tour the island. The building is old and the walls are solid, so noise from other rooms cannot be heard. There are lovely walking trails nearby. The food is largely locally sourced, and our meals were superb. The dining room is quiet enough so you can hear your companions even when the room is full. The lounge is attached to the bar and casual dining which is clearly enjoyed by people other than guests at this small hotel. ' - VA - August, 2017
