Unfortunately this in not a good review, although it is only based on the service. On entering the hotel at 1.50 on Monday the 21st, as a party of 5. We were looking forward to having a lovely meal, having eaten there many times before. Having found a table sat down, got back up to look at the specials board... More

Was in the hotel at the weekend and had a stunning tea (excellent seafood / steak and dessert) - great fun in there bar afterwards (was playing some music with friends) and were made to feel very welcome by Grahame. Breakfast again excellent, and would highly recommend. Thanks again.

Just had an excellent meal in the hotel restaurant, of scallops, lobster, and cheesecake (not on one plate obviously!). The food was outstanding, but pricey because of that, and the service was attentive and very professional. We're half-way through our holiday on Islay but we're worried our dining may have now peaked at the Port Charlotte Hotel as we don't... More

Really enjoyed our stay here... our room was quite small but very comfortable, with wonderful views across the loch. There was a very comfortable residents lounge and really excellent food... lamb, venison, beef etc all very good. The wine list was excellent, so food and drink were a real highlight for us here. We had been slightly disappointed before arrival,... More

Stayed a couple of nights here at the end of Feis Ile ( islay whisky festival). The food was outstanding, the service excellent and the atmosphere and live music in the bar was also great. Our room was lovely and had a view out towards Bowmore. The weather was superb which made it even better. Totally recommend a stay.

This was our second visit for evening dining, the previous time about two years ago. The food was still good but I felt this time the service was rather slow. This would not however stop me from going again.

Just visited this hotel during the whisky festival, had a great time, the music was great, staff friendly and the food was very good. It's a bit more expensive than your average bar food but is value for money.
