We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It was very convenient, literally you drive off the ferry into the parking lot. The hotel is old and quaint, quite dated which is okay with me. The staff were helpful and friendly. My biggest complaint is the beds and pillows were not comfortable. it seems to me if your main service is... More

We had a nice lunch while waiting for the ferry served by helpful and friendly staff. However, it was a bit pricey for the standard of hotel. It's in a lovely location looking across to Jura but the décor and furnishings are in dire need of upgrading. Sitting outside if the weather permits would be the best option.

I was at Port Askaig last weekend having a drink at the hotel which is an excellent place to do so with great views across the water to Jura and right beside the cute harbour. It really is a lovely place to enjoy a drink on a sunny afternoon and the interior of the bar is cosy and friendly when... More

Had lunch at this dated hotel before getting the ferry (not much choice at ferry terminal!). Food was good (excellent fish and chips and steak pie) and waiters were very nice and helpful. However, it was very off putting hearing the manager complaining loudly to her friends and berating her staff for cleaning the tables 'the incorrect way'. I felt... More

I will only say to this reviewer that I REGRET IF SHE WAS IN ANY WAY AFFECTED BY MY ACTIONS - however sometimes you have to act quickly and explain your reasons for doing so and short of grabbing the stong chemical spray from the girl's hand I could only prevent the wooden table from being irriversably damaged by stopping...

Wanted a meal on Islay before catching last ferry to Kintyre at 6:00pm. Tourist office in Bowmore kindly arranged with the hotel for us to have a meal prepared by the chef starting earlier than normal at 4:30pm just for us. The meal was perfect and made a very pleasant end to our two days on Islay. Many thanks to... More

Shame about the open bar door letting in the midges ! We had a comfy clean room. The staff were friendly and welcoming. More important was the after... More

Stayed for a few nights in the single room Staffa, the room and en-suite are perfectly comfortable but the view is of the adjacent car park, it you want a sea view take someone with you and get a double room! As a digression this hotel isn't alone in providing only adequate accommodation for single travellers but at least the... More

We had a wonderfuly meal and excellent evening at Port Askaig Hotel. Our friends, who had never been to Islay before were treated to a first class meal, especially the seafood which was beautifully fresh and well presented. Congratulations to all the staff and Marion and Ian who were as usual fantastic company.
