I recently stayed here with my girlfriend and Mary could not have been more welcoming. The breakfast's were huge and of great quality. I had to ask for a smaller portion the next day! The room itself was good. Very clean and with the sort of amenities one would expect in a B&B. My only comment would be that the... More

I've just spent 6 nights at the Trout Fly and I had an amazing stay! Mary and Donald did everything possible to make my stay on Islay a very pleasant one. They were just so nice and helpful. The breakfast was great and it kept me going until dinner time. The house is decorated with taste and spotless clean. It... More

The Trout Fly is located very conveniently for the ferry terminal and for local facilities and eateries. I arrived at midday but was welcome to leave my bags so I could stay out late as I wanted to make the most of the good weather. I was treated as a friend right away as were the other guests who were... More

I'm just back from having a very relaxing 4 night stay at the Guest House. The breakfast each morning was amazing, I have to agree with all the other reviews about Marys porridge best I've tasted. I highly recommend the Trout Fly if your visiting Islay.

On arriving at the guest house, we were met by Mary who was very friendly and welcoming indeed. She could not do enough to help us and make sure we had a pleasant stay on the Island.

We stayed one night in the Trout Fly in Port Ellen. Mary and Donnie are excellent hosts and we enjoyed their chat. Rooms are rather small but clean and tidy. Breakfast was excellent and there is a small lounge to relax in after a day exploring Islay.

We returned to the US 2 days ago after a 3 week holiday in Scotland. Our first day was in Port Ellen. We stayed at the Trout Fly. It was the most welcoming of all the welcoming places in which we stayed. I usually do not like porridge but after I finished the porridge at the Trout Fly's breakfast I... More

A stones throw away from the ferry, lovely clean rooms, comfy bed and a breakfast fit for a king. Mary was the perfect hostess and she knows how to send you on your way with a full tummy! Excellent value for money.
