We stayed two nights and had a fantastic time. The staff were great; welcoming and approachable, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was clean and comfortable with a view across to Mull which was captivating and ever changing. All in all a great place to spend some time.

We stayed here for 2 nights last week and wished we could have stayed for longer. The location is fantastic - just a minutes walk from the Mull ferry landing and with amazing views over the sea. We were fortunate to be in Room 1 which I think has been recently refurbished and is really lovely with the same great... More

We had lunch here on our day in Iona. The staff were brilliant, very patient and helpful. They do a 'half-soup/half-sandwich' which we all had and was delicious for a lunch time snack. If you manage to get a table in the conservatory, then you have a beautiful sea view. We'd walked to the Abbey first, but noticed there is... More

Situated a few minutes walk from the pier the hotel gives you beautiful views over the Sound of Iona to Mull. The dining room has a lovely open fire which was always lit during our stay due to the unfortunately damp & chilly weather. It didn't stop us eating in the conservatory watching the boats bobbing in the current &... More

We were visiting Mull, and took a day trip to Iona. As we came off the morning ferry we wanted coffee; we were charmed by the harbour-side location of this small inn, and went in to ask. They welcomed us - and our dogs - in the downstairs lounge. We were so charmed - quaint old building, friendly young staff... More

A great place for lunch with fantastic staff, quality food and a perfect view of the ferry slip to make it possible to get your bill and hop aboard.....If we visited Iona again would definitely stay based on the lunch experience.....

I stayed with my mother in mid March in a lovely twin room with a beautiful view. Upon arrival we were told that dinner was at 6pm which was way too early. We managed to negotiate a further 30 mins as I wanted to make the most of the daylight. We arrived for dinner to be informed that there was... More

Thank you for your comments. As we discussed on your departure we were doing a special week before opening for the season, doing dinner, bed and breakfast for £80 per person. I apologised profusely for not making it clear enough on your booking that we had a set menu. I am pleased that despite the meal, the hotel overall was... More

We stayed here for two nights in September with four friends from USA and England and we had a memorable holiday! The views from the hotel overlook the sea towards Mull and it is only a few minutes walk from the ferry. Our weather was superb with sunshine and continual blue skies and we all loved Iona.
