Wonderful location! Wonderful tea and coffee! Scones just right. Cakes just right. Biscuits just right. Accommodating to the children just wanting milk to drink. Good service. Very happy family.....Look forward to coming back again one day to try out more on their menu.

I enjoyed my first meals at the Argyll many years ago when my husband came for a visit while I was volunteering in the Iona Community. They were superb - local ingredients prepared with an international flair. I have been back a few time since, including this past week, and I still give this restaurant top ratings.

During our 23 day trip of the UK the Argyll was a definite highlight. It is completely devoid of amenities like noisy pools, raucous pubs, televisions and radios in your room. Instead it has a simply gorgeous view of the sea and the Isle of Mull, lots of fresh air, miles of walks and the best food we had during... More

We headed to this hotel to avoid the long restroom lines at the ferry and were surprised with a good place to have lunch. We were on the day trip to Mull and Iona. We had delicious soup and bread and a beautiful view. The service was great.

Stopped here for a lovely lunch when visiting Iona. Really attentive staff and beautiful home made food. Great cakes and decent coffee. Didn't stay overnight - so can't comment on the hotel facilities. I recommend sitting outside on the front looking at the wildlife, the very tame birds no watching the world go by. Will be back !!

Situated with lovely, uninterrupted views of Mull. Garden slopes down to the sea - ideal for pre-dinner drinks. Limited choice on the menu which means that food is fresh. Best meal of our holiday served by friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant/ hotel to friends.

The Argyll Hotel on Iona is a short walk from the ferry, overlooking the harbor with a beautiful view. The rooms are comfortable and ours had a harbor view with two chairs at the window. The restaurant at the Argyll is outstanding, with a different fish-of-the-day every day, all prepared superbly by the chef. The only downside to the hotel... More

Dear Ann I am pleased that you found the hotel and restaurant so much to your liking! Currently we have no plans for wifi in the rooms. A slow signal to the island currently means that download speeds would be unsatisfactory. Thank you for taking time to write us a review. More

Stayed at hotel for two nights on tour of western Scotland. Read much about the good food but on the night we ate there the catch of the day was very average as was the service. Whilst its a nice quiet location and the hotel is clean and welcoming the whole experience left us a little underwhelmed. Anyone expecting a... More

this hotel is full of character and very clean. Don't go here if you are expecting all mod cons like reliable internet, phone signal etc you will be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend and ate in the hotel restaurant both nights. It turned out to be a great choice for staying and for eating. Very peaceful setting but conveniently only yards from the pier (though nothing's far away on Iona - it's a small island). Blissfully quiet at night and with a beautiful view... More
