This was our second stay at the Port Charlotte Hotel. The staff both in the bar and in reception are friendly, helpful and efficient. The bedroom in which we stayed is very comfortable, a mix of traditional furniture and contemporary soft furnishings. The bed is supremely comfortable. The bathroom is modern and immaculate. The food is good and service attentive.... More

Visited the bar area of the Port Charlotte Hotel today to have a spot of lunch for my birthday. We opened the door to be greeted by a happy face behind the bar. I asked about one of the ciders on tap which I was given a small sample. Lovely cider so I ordered a glass. We asked if food... More

The Isle of Islay, in the western isles of Scotland, is heaven in itself but being at the Port Charlotte Hotel made it more so. Islay is a beautiful destination with its clear waters, wildlife, moorland, mountains, cliffs, unspoilt beaches and, of course, its fine whisky which you can see being made and sample at its eight distilleries. So you'll... More

As a regular visitor to Islay I have eaten lunch and dinner here on a fair number of occasions but this year I was very disappointed with the reception from the rather unfriendly bar staff. We had popped in for lunch (sat down at 13:50!) but were ignored for so long that when the waitress did come over to speak... More

Thank you for your review and I am sorry that you felt disappointed with the service on your last visit. Our bar lunches are served between 12 and 2.00 p.m. and I can only assume that the staff were unaware of your intention to have lunch as you should have immediately been given lunch menus on your arrival.

we have just come back from Islay, silvern skies, rust coloured landscape and unrivalled hospitality. From the cheery wave or fingerlift as you pass people on the road, to the beaming welcome at the reception desk at the Port Charlotte hotel. Our room was spacious (as it can ever be in the Hebridees!) well appointed and NOT overheated. The hotel... More

Reluctantly I feel I must respond to this insulting and arrogant review. Trip Advisor feel that it is within their review criteria however I have to firmly disagree with this. The reviewer failed to turn up on his first nights stay although his two friends did arrive on the due date. When it was explained that our cancellation policy states... More

We stayed at the Port Charlotte Hotel in September to get away from the stress of the city. We were not disappointed. The welcome was warm and friendly, the bedroom (number 10) was well appointed, very clean, fab bathroom and great sea views and we loved the luxury furnishings with a traditional twist. We note the point previously about the... More

I went here to get over a wee trauma and it did the trick. magnificent views, peaceful, lovely restaurant and buzzing bar. Very Scottish. Beautiful nearby walks and great whisky tours. I found this to be the best of all the Islands

The most important thing at first: all of us felt really sorry when we had to leave Islay and everybody from the Port Charlotte Hotel who helped and made our visit such a wonderful experience! We travelled with quite a large group of 8 and once we arrived on Islay absolutely everything was taken care of by our wonderful guide... More

Stayed here recently after hearing a lot about how good the hotel was and was not disappointed. The room, a single was large enough for two people and very comfortable with delightful decor. The atmosphere in the bar was terrific and very friendly. There were local musicians playing at night and the place was absolutely "buzzing". Food in the restaurant... More
