We booked two rooms for three nights each twelve months ago. We received written confirmation and told we would be contacted early in the new year about a deposit. 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

The Islay whiskys were not to my taste (or price) but I can confidently say that An Taigh Osda would suit everyone. The hosts could not have been more helpful and the food quality and presentation were excellent. (I only wish we could have had the scallops every night!!) The bedroom and lounge/bar areas were comfortable with a super front... More

Having been a malt whisky lover since the days before everyone else started drinking the stuff, and a particular aficionado of the Islay variants since I was barely past old enough to suck them off a dummy, a trip to Islay was the perfect pilgrimage and 'significant (60th) birthday' treat. Courtesy of my other 'arf, gawd bless her. In the... More

A little gem of a hotel, on the Isla whisky trail. Clearly this is a labour of love for Paul & Joan. All needs are catered for and the food they serve is really of a very good quality and beautifully presented.

Great 3 night stay at An Taigh Osda. Perfect location for touring Islay. Paul and Joan were very helpful in providing information on various sites and restaurants. Right next door to the Bruichladdich Distillery - one of our favorites on Islay. Inn is tastefully appointed and out room had a fabulous view of the bay.

This is the perfect accommodation run by a wonderful couple who have excellent attention to detail. Paul and Joan run this like a 5 star hotel serving quality food, local beverages from their bar, and a fantastic breakfast. The standards here are better than some hotels who claim to be the best. The location is right next to Bruichladdich distillery... More

The hotel amenities are superb. What sets it apart though is the hosting, the proprietors attention to detail is evident throughout. The food is wonderful, the bar is well stocked and atmosphere is one of total relaxation. It’s part luxury hotel, part charming local inn, a MUST stay when in Islay.

Me & my mate Nigel have been planning a pilgrimage to Islay for over 2 years - big deal. Well it was to us - we're both disabled & a trip like this on our own was a bit like having a crack at our very own whisky Everest. We chose An Taigh Osda because it looked personnel & the... More
