Just back from a weekend stay in the beautiful island of Islay. We stayed at the stunning Port Charlotte Hotel and the food & accommodation was first class. The hotel is extremely comfortable and run by a genial host who ensures a good time is had by all. The variety of scotch whiskey on offer is staggering and the atmosphere... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in March, and took advantage of their "Malt, Music, and Culture" tour package. I cannot emphasize how much we enjoyed everything! The tour package was worth every penny. The tour schedule drawn up for us included distillery tours, visiting landmarks and cultural sites, meals, breaks for resting when needed, and driving... More

We had two nights here to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is charming and characterful. Our room (room 9) was quietly situated and beautifully decorated with tasteful antique furniture. However, the bathroom was modern with an excellent shower and nice "Au Lait" toiletries by Arran Aromatics (a favourite of mine!) Views out across the sea... More

Called in with friends for the evening and the local music band was in full swing. It was entertaining and there was all nationalities present. The mix was fantastic and we had a great night. Will certainly return when back in islay.

We had a 2 night mid week stay and could not believe how amazing this place is. Although it was a windy rainy day when we arrived, we managed a walk on the small beach in front of the hotel before enjoying tea & tablet & a card game in front of the fire in the lounge/reception area. The view... More

I wish I could stay somewhere like this on every trip! My room was cozy, with a great view of the lighthouse and the sea. The hotel is right on the water, so there are no real "bad" views. The staff is the friendliest and most accommodating I've ever experienced. Graham and Fiona — the owners — even invited me... More

Immediately overwhelmed by the warmth and ambiance of the hotel, the staff were friendly and only too willing to make your stay a positive experience. We ate in the restaurant both nights and can safely say that it was outstanding. The bedroom was clean and very comfortable. The live music and wide variety of beverages available in the bar in...

Its nearly 7 years since we were last on Islay and I was interested to see if the Port Charlotte Hotel had managed to maintain its standards. I'm pleased to report that it hasn't it has actually bettered them! The room as previously are excellent. Its an old building so the rooms aren't huge especially as each now has en-suite... More

Having visited the bar a number for times while on holiday we then had the pleasure of stopping in the hotel for a night. Well where do I start? Such a warm welcome from Graham and the rest of the staff, a beautiful bar with a real roaring fire, an extensive range of whiskeys with great advice and recommendations. As... More

First time to stay here but if back on Islay would stay here again. Very friendly staff, lovely food, albeit I only ate in the bar, but the braised sausages made from local beef were very tasty. Breakfast was pretty good too. The bar was very inviting with a warm open fire and good selection of malts as you would... More

Thank you for your kind review, it is good to know you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again another time. For information we do not penalise single occupancy in double rooms throughout the year which is not the case in many other hotels. Should you wish to bring your wife next time... More
