We stayed in the old bakery which sleeps 14 as there were 13 of us, parents, sons, daughters and grandchildren . Went there for a 100th birthday week.= 1 @ 70 plus 1 @ 30. Any excuse really. It was over 20 degrees C the whole week and did not rain which, given that it should have, may lead you... More

Recently stayed in the Stillman's Cottage. We loved it! All the comforts of home and a beautiful garden to sit in the evenings to enjoy your complimentary bottle of 12 year old Bowmore! The staff at Bowmore was great to deal with. Everything is within walking distance. We will be back.

This was the accommodation for the Rabbie's Tour of Islay. It has four bedrooms sleeps eight or nine. Has a lounge and kitchen/dining area. It is well appointed, though we only used the facilities to sleep, for breakfast and drinks in the evening. It is relaxing and I would definitely consider renting one of the cottages if I go back...

Visited Islay on a Rabbies tour and stayed at the cottages. They were superb. En-suite in every room, fully fitted kitchen to the highest standards and lovely bedroom. The tour was great and the driver, Ruth, was wonderful. All in all a great break.

Top notch accommodation. Spec was superb, and spacious. Quality fittings , and well appointed kitchen. Fantastic location centrally in town. 2 min walk to the pub, Co-op supermarket, Quay, Chippie, and of course, the distillery. Good WIFI and super comfy beds. If you want to do all the other distilleries, and don't want to drive, the bus literally stops outside... More

We stayed in the Maltman cottage for 2 nights celebrating a family members 40th. On arrival there was a complimentary 12yr bottle of Bowmore which was a nice touch. Bedrooms were lovely and all en suite. Cottage was clean & well equipped. Would definitely recommend staying here. There was also a complimentary tour of the distillery which was excellent!

Stayed with friends in the Distillery House. Lovely and spacious accomodation with all mod cons. On arrival we went to the Visitor Centre at Bowmore Distillery and were shown to the cottage. There was a welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee, sugar and the most important thing - a bottle of Bowmore! The cottage was right on the main street... More

Great location in the centre of the village with shops, restaurants and pubs nearby. The staff in the distillery visitor centre were very friendly, helpful and cheerful. Worth doing the tour of the distillery which was included - and lets not forget the complimentary... More
