We tend to go to Scotland for scenery, lovely rooms and great food, and we were not disappointed here. Wonderful scenery and views from the bedrooms. The menu is the same each day with 'specials', but we did find enough selection for a week, and the food is terrific, with a skilfully run dining room. Breakfast maybe simpler, but a... More

Thank you for your kind review. It is nice to know that we helped to make your business trip that bit more comfortable and relaxing. The tension eases as soon as the ferry leaves Kennacraig and sails towards our lovely island and the comfort of our friendly hotel. More

What a friendly, welcoming place this is. Real ales from Islay Brewery and Fyne Ales and a superb collection of malt whiskies, imaginative locally sourced food and comfortable rooms - two nights was just not long enough. The hotel also features a stunning collection of Scottish artwork and on the Sunday night we were there, local musicians entertained us with... More

We very fortunate to visit this hotel when we were staying just up the road. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The ambience was wonderful and the food terrific. We will certainly be going back and hope to stay in the hotel itself. We would like to thank Graeme, Isabelle, Kenny and Alan for all their hard work and... More

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
