This B & B has become a home away from home for me (not bad from the far side of the planet!) - every trip I've made to the UK since 2005 has featured, and I mean "featured" a stay here. Rhona and Hamish have been unfailingly welcome and helpful, making me feel more like a friend than a guest.... More

Stayed for two nights at Caladh Sona. The location is excellent as just two mins away from the ferry terminal of Port Ellen. Received a warm welcome and our room was lovely and had an ensuite. The room had two single beds and plenty of storage (wardrobe and chest of drawers). Also has satelite TV and tea/coffe making facilities. The... More

We booked into this B and B having seen it recommended in The Rough Guide to Scotland's Highlands and Islands. As per another review the welcome into the hotel was odd... We knocked on the (locked) door several times before a gentleman popped his head out of a upstairs window to ask what we were doing (we had rung ahead... More

we've stayed only one night, after we've booked out of a very expensive address in Bowmore, but wished we've booked this instead! very clean bedroom, we slept in the front room which was a bit small, but big enough for two people! the lady of the house was very pleasant, and breakfast was also very good! Well worth the money!... More

We have just returned from a three day trip to Islay where we stayed with Rhona and Hamish Scott in Port Ellen for the duration of our visit. Islay is a beautiful island but our holiday was really "made" for us with the wonderful hospitality we received from our hosts. Our accommodation was ideal with exceptional cleanliness throughout. We ate... More

The Caladh Sona B&B was exactly what we were looking for. When we arrived, Rhona the owner, had arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us to the B&B. Rhona greeted us at the door of the quaintly situated house (at the end of the main street of Port Ellen). Our room had a... More

My wife and I arrived at the B&B to a very friendly welcome. Room was excellent, spotlessly clean as was the shower room. Rhona made an excellent breakfast and was very informative re weather and places of interest. An ideal B&B for a very relaxing short break in an ideal location.

When we arrived in the afternoon with suitcases, the door was locked, I rang the bell and a little lady popped her head out of the upstairs window and said "what do you want" good start I thought. The room was not ideal, small and facing on to the main road junction in the village which caught the headlight glare... More

Located just a few hundred meters from the ferry terminal in Port Ellen makes this B&B very easy to find and access. Frankly it's not that difficult to get around in Port Ellen as it is a rather small village. Rhona and Hamish taking a lot of pride in serving their guests makes the stay very pleasent and relaxing.
