Comfy room and large bed. Nice large bathroom - everything clean. The food was delicious - Beautiful view. Owners very nice and welcoming. The hotel not as remote as I had imagined - We had a fantasy of wandering out to sit on the beach/wander along the shoreline - but the views are stunning and a short walk and a... More

Staying at the hotel added to our enjoyment of visiting Isley. Paul and Joan have are excellent hosts and have a proper understanding of what it takes to run a quality Hotel. The food especially is superb.I don't want to pin point any single thing as the whole stay was top notch and we were made to feel very welcome.

Beautiful setting. The room was pristine. Attention to detail. Friendly hosts. Everything freshly painted and new. Fluffy white towels, 3 ply toilet paper, nice bath, crisp linnen, beautiful view. Lovely location on islay with a small shop and 4 restaurants close by and a whisky distillery next door! We were a bit unsure as to what to expect for accomodation... More

An Taigh Osda is everything my husband and I look for on holiday but don't always find. But this hotel doesn't disappoint. Its run by the owners, Paul and Joan, who provide immaculate accomodation, beautiful views, top class service and amazing food (we like our food!). We are home rested & revived and with a new interest - Islay Malts.... More

There may be other excellent small hotels on Islay but the An Taigh Osda is hard to beat! The furnishings and decor are top quality and all spotlessly clean. Food first class. Breakfast had lovely choices and cooked to perfection. Dinner was 3 course and coffee for £40 and worth every penny. The views accross the bay to the Paps... More

We never heard anything from them and arrived at Islay and found no one there. We rang and spoke to the owners who said they had emailed us six times and... More

We read the reviews and decided to treat ourselves to a long weekend and I am glad we did it was first class. We stayed in room 4 with its lovely views and comfortable beds. We didn't eat there the first night but did on the second and it was great. For some £40 might seem a lot for dinner... More

I have stayed here a few times since 2010. My recent 3 night stay in July was as good as the others. This is real quality establishment with every detail having been attended to. The rooms are bright and fresh with superb en-suite facilities and most with spectacular views. The decor was fresh with clean quality white towels and the... More
