We stopped here for lunch and despite looking a bit tired from the outside inside is full of old world pub charm. The food was delicious we had fish and chips which was extremely fresh and good size portion not enormous and the Cullen skink was also delicious. Worth a stop if you are hungry.

It's a shame that the quality of the accommodation is so poor here. We had a room that looked like it was last refurbished in the 70's, and it was totally lacking in the facilities you would expect like a TV, tea/coffee etc. The room was not serviced during our short stay. Very poor value for money it has to... More

I take it firstly that this review is wrongly dated or has someone actually sent in a review a year late? More than half of our rooms have been refurbished recently and those that have not have had the benefit of new carpeting linen etc. and while slightly dated are warm clean and comfortable We are refurbishing on a rolling...

Tempted by the board at the bar offering scones, butter and jam, generally a favourite of mine, I ordered one along with my coffee. The microwave treatment was not enough to disguise a very stale scone, probably one of those that I'd seen on the bar counter the evening before. It was biscuity dry. I was going to leave it,...

Re - hard scone - obviously staff member had used the microwave to heat the scone and left it too long - this can happen in a few seconds - but why oh! why did you not simply hand it back and ask for a fresh one. I think perhaps you just like to have a rant - so unnecessary... More

Visited the public bar after a hiking / biking trip on Jura whilst waiting for the ferry. Lovely spot , service not fast but only one staff on late afternoon. Loved the darts - machine counter the best! Discovered on returning home had dropped rucksack rain cover - contacted hotel and gentleman arranged for it to be collected by visiting... More

We would have booked anywhere that would have us, as we were determined to climb Beinn a' Chaolais on Jura, but completely incapable of doing all the Paps ( which we would have done from Craighouse). We had a wonderful view of our destination from the bedroom we were eventually allocated after a party of geologists moved out. The hotel... More

We called in here for a drink and a bite to eat while we waited for the ferry to Jura. The hotel has a nice little bar and we sheltered from the rain. It's a habit of mine to order Cullen Skink if it's on the menu and I'd had a few during our trip, so seeing it listed as... More

Probably a misunderstanding between waitress and kitchen for which I apologise. - we serve two portion sizes and you obviously got a starter portion. I would be happy to send you a refund if you e mail your full name and address to hotel@portaskaig.co.uk. Our apologies. More

Firstly sorry your table did not get served - we always regret any customer being disappointed at Port Askaig. However by way of explanation, on an average day we serve something between 25 - 40 lunches and are staffed accordingly. On the day in question our 2nd chef on his own cooked over 70 lunches - and not one of... More

I have to admit we weren't expecting much after reading some of the previous reviews. Though we've been fascinated by this place and left with great holiday experience. It's a cozy hotel by the water with probably the best view in Scotland. It offers excellent food and great selection (and collection) of whiskey. It's situated near the ferry terminal to... More

We stayed here for a week,and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent breakfasts and evening meals,very well cooked using local produce. The fish was particularly good(not surprising as the fishing boats came in 20 yards away).The service was really good, and above all, everybody would go out of their way to help.Our ensuite room was quite adequate and spotlessly clean.
