Wonderful experience staying here. Andrea was wonderful and helped us out with our inquiries. (And as we had traveled from Australia there were a few!) Right by the Ferry Clean and Comfortable, you couldn't ask for much more. Highly recommend and would go back again!

Stayed here for 4 nights. Handy location next to the ferry terminal and town of Port Ellen. The weather was pretty poor (it was January I suppose) but the lovely island and fantastic locals made up for it. Coming back to this b&b at the end of each day was the icing on the cake! Had a great time and... More

Had a 3 night stay at this fantastic little establsihment. Even before making the booking, the owner (Andrea) couldnt have been more helpful sharing info about the island and suggested things to do. The B&B itself is very clean and well kept and the double room we had was ensuite with freesat TV. From the moment we arrived, we were... More

Really nice B&B in an ideal location, just 2 mins from the ferry and beaches. Rooms are comfortable and clean, with freesat tv and coffee making facilities. Breakfasts are big. Andrea was really friendly and welcoming and it was very much appreciated, especially by Beau!! I would definitely recommend Cala Sith, and look forward to another chance of visiting this... More

We have just returned from staying here and the only word we can use to describe it is "fantastic". From the minute you arrive you are made to feel totally at ease! The house and rooms are spotless and the breakfasts are totally amazing! My mum is going to get a shock when she's back to toast and jam! Andrea,... More

Just returned from a wedding on the island and had a fantastic stay at the Cala Sith B&B. It was a friend that arranged and booked the hotel for me and after looking at the pictures online I wasn't too sure! The pictures really don't do this place justice! The arrival was very friendly and Andrea was extremely helpful making... More

Cala Sith is an excellent B&B, especially because of Andrea (manager) and other staff. We stayed in a double en-suite room (number 3), which was good. Not very big or special, but nothing to complain about. Everything was very clean and the shower was ok. The breakfast was really good and big, you won't leave hungry. There is a wide... More

Our first trip to the Holy Land of Single Malt. We started at Cala Sith, and we couldn't have chosen better. Even before arrival, Andrea arranged a taxi for us from Islay Airport. Next, she arranged "a push bike for the boys" at Jim's - for we had this mad plan to visit the Island by bicycle. Great lad by... More

Everything was cosey and brilliantly clean. Great location and lovely view over the bay. Crisp white linen. Staff were so friendly and welcoming. Very helpful with tips about the island. Only downside was that we had to share the bathroom with another guest.
