The motel is in the perfect location for having a little walk in Port Ellen. A convenience store, a bar and restaurants are close by. Parking is no problem. The rooms are homely and perfectly clean, the furniture looked rather new, and the beds were really comfortable. The breakfast is amazing, and the owner (her name is Mary) is incredibly... More

While many people have given this bnb a 4 or 5 star rating, after having travelled around the west coast for a week, I'm giving the bnb a 3 star rating for predominantly because this was the priciest bnb we stayed in however furnishings were somewhat dated compared to the others we went to, and the bathroom, while available for...

A friend and I stayed at the Trout Fly for several nights last week - it's a lovely little B&B, central for Port Ellen; quiet; clean; epic breakfasts; and Mary is awesome. She even ran us out to Laphroaig when we asked her for taxi info. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Spent one night with friends/family during our whisky trip to Scotland. Mary (owner) is super friendly (like coming home to your granny). We had all three rooms and therefore the whole place to our selves. Highly recommended. (ask for instruction on the shower, a bit different than usual)

We spent just one night at the Trout Fly on a trip to Islay. However, I can't wait to go back. Mary is a wonderful host and her enthusiasm for Islay and Jura and her encouragement of her guests to explore (with her expert advice) is second to none. Our room was comfortable, cozy and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was... More

Wonderful, personalized service! Met at the door and immediately took up to room without any fuss or preliminaries. Great breakfast, and very helpful during our stay. Newly appointed and renovated room. A bit small, but typical for Great Britain.

I stayed with a friend at The Trout Fly, initially for two nights. We cancelled our adventures elsewhere to stay here for another two nights. I have never had, nor could I wish for, kinder, friendlier, and more generous hosts than Don and Mary. I had exchanged several emails with Mary leading up to our arrival as there was uncertainty...

Excellent location, superb service. Mary came out as we were walking in and made us feel completely at home. Rooms were small -- the only downside, but normal for the UK. Our room was newly renovated and spotless clean. Made breakfasts to order -- wonderful trip!!
