Thanks to all the staff at the Bridgend Hotel on Islay for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming, and no request was too much bother. Meals were also excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel. The only down-side were the shooting parties with whom we shared the hotel.

Stayed here for three nights with friends. From the moment we arrived, we could not have been made more welcome. ALL the staff are so genuinely friendly. Nothing was any bother. The hotel is clean well equipped and ideally located. The food was exceptional. Thanks especially to the chef for the excellent food presented on a special menu for my... More

Islay has only a few hotels and it seemed we were lucky to get a room here with 2 separate beds. The Hotel is in the middle of the isle near a junction to all major directions, so you get all the spots within 30-40min driving. We arrived quite late after we came from Oban with the ferry. The day... More

Thank you for such a lovely review. After a great summer and a fairly benign autumn we have had some fairly brisk weather in November. This does have a charm of its own when one is settled down by the fire eating a platter of Scottish cheeses and polishing off a bottle of wine (or maybe a dram or two).... More

As I wanted a central location for this year's Feis Ile, we once again booked a stay at this marvelous hotel. Our 9 days couldn't have been more relaxing - our room was spacious and warmly appointed. Lorna and her staff make every effort to make their guests feel comfortable - there's always a warming fire in the lounge and... More

I am so glad that you enjoyed the Feis and look forward to seeing you back at Bridgend. The one point I would make to anyone reading this review is that we are starting to get quite full in May next year (I write on 19th Nov) so please don't dither too much over making a booking if you want...

We were nicely received and shown to our room by a very pleasant lady. After refreshing in our room we went down for dinner. We were invited to sit in the lounge and look at the menu. Once chosen we were taken to the dinning room which has a lovely view over a charming garden. Our stay was just perfect.

Lorna and staff welcome you personally like friends and are very pleasingly accommodating. Bridgend is a large home with ample rooms, fantastic king beds, a comfortable lounge, pub room and large dining room with a beautiful garden adjoining. Food and drink selections are generous and very good. It is centrally located on the island for trips to all eight distilleries,... More

The Bridgend hotel is without doubt the best hotel i have stayed at for friendliness and genuine hospitality. The manager, Laura was a star and all the staff were genuinely happy to be of service and cheerful. The accommodation was truly comfortable, homely rather than sumptuous, but absolutely spotless, neat and comfy. The warmth of the people in the area... More

This is a lovely review, thank you. Without wishing to detract from the welcome praise, I would point out that we’re a Hotel and therefore offer dinner as well as bed and breakfast. We’re also licensed and stock whiskies from all the island’s distilleries as well as wines & beers. Having an over-warm room on Islay is not something that... More
