We had a wonderful time on Iona and the Argyll Hotel was an important part of making our four nights there so good. We did not choose the most expensive lodgings so we did not expect a 5 star experience. Its location was perfect, being a short walk from the ferry and having a lawn with seating and tables with...

Iona is an ancient and unique island at the edge of the world.You need two ferries to get here from the mainland and it is exciting to see the hotel nestled among the little houses beside the the ferry pier. The rooms are neat and cosy and well appointed and the sea view (for which you pay a lot) is... More

We would like to offer WiFi in more of the hotel but until such time as the broadband service for the island can cope with higher... More

We did enjoy our time on Iona, but there were a few wee things that stopped it being perfect. The evening meals were lovely, and of a very high quality. Most of the food is home grown or locally sourced, which is great and can give you things on the menu that are maybe a bit out of the ordinary.... More

We stopped by for lunch on our trip back from the Staffa ferry tour. We were greeted by the owner, who seated us and attended all of the lunch guests, along with his friendly wait staff. The soups and salads we had were delicious. We wanted to stay for dinner, but had to catch the last ferry back to Mull... More

Had lunch here and the food was excellent and the service could not have been better. It is also in a glorious location too and I have no doubt at all that we will be back to stay for longer. Helped to make the day on magical Iona a great experience.

A beautiful place, great food & very friendly, helpful staff. This was the best overall eating experience we can remember as a family. So lovely to be able to dine with our border collie in the north lounge. A highlight of our holiday. Thanks!

The Argyll Hotel is in a great spot by the quay - only a short walk from the ferry. The welcome is great, staff engaging and the rooms, although small, are comfortable. We enjoyed the ambiance a great deal. Dinner with local residents was excellent and the cocktails were super!
