Great food!

Lovely service and great food. No children's menu per se, but they accommodated ours very well. Everyone was happy. Have the Cullen skink if you get the chance!

We ordered our sandwiches, soups and salads inside and then ate at the picnic tables outside overlooking the water. The food was good, price right and service friendly.

We visited during a day trip to Iona. Most folk were heading left so we turned right and stumbled on The Argyll Hotel. It was very quiet when we arrived but packed within 5 minutes. The restaurant is geared up to cater for the demands of ferries arriving and disgorging passengers. The menu is short and consists mainly of soup... More

Will stay on our next visit! Ignore the bus drivers tips for lunch and turn right aiming for the Argyll Hotel!! We both had the small Soup and a sarnie combo, great value. Cullen Skink and an open sandwich. The views and service were excellent.

Good cooking and service, with wonderful vegetables from the Argyll's garden. Dinner at the Argyll is a lovely way to finish a day on Iona

We stayed for three nights in a double room at the front of the building looking across the water to Mull. The view is glorious, the room very comfortable. The Argyll is an old building, with all that entails, but has been modernised sympathetically. The quality of food was a pleasant surprise, but it is most important to book in... More

My friend and I decided to try this restaurant after visiting the abbey, and it was delightful! Great service, and really good food. Also a nice view from the proch where we ate. Highly recommend this if you are on Iona. Staff also excellent.

Personable waiters who were helpful and well informed. The reception desk will charge your cell phone (we had forgotten our converter from the USA). There is a pleasant lounge and a lovely garden overlooking the water. They also have an organic garden for fresh produce, but we were too early in the season to benefit from this.

My family and I had several meals (lunches and dinner) at this hotel over a few days in May. The food was great, generous, reasonably priced, locally grown (in their back 'garden' - its very big and needs to be) and uses interesting blends of flavors. It's great that Highland Hospitality is now matched by quality of food that can... More
