If you want a peaceful boutique hotel, with wonderful staff, good food, relaxing atmosphere and amazing showers (though slightly quirky bedrooms), and a drying room for wet cycling gear, I recommend the Bridgend hotel. That it is a short distance from Bruichladdich distillery is a nice wee bonus!!

We arrived at the hotel after a long day. Having arrived at the ferry at 6:15am, we were told the ferry was canceled and they were booked solid for 10 and 1 o'clock departures. But we waited and were the last ones on standby who got on at 10. That meant all the distillery tours we booked had to be... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Bridgend Hotel. The hotel was homely, with a warm welcome. The staff were charming and friendly, the food was good and the rooms were spotless, comfortable and reasonably priced. Quiet and cosy.

My wife and I recently stayed for two nights whilst touring the Scottish Islands. Our room was large and well appointed with a generously sized bed. Dining at the Bridgend Hotel was a treat on both evenings, once in Katie's Bar and the other night in the main restaurant, excellent range and choices of food on both occasions. A special... More

Thank you very much for such a glowing review. I fully accept that our car park is in sore need of improvement, and I am pleased to say that steps are already in hand, to do just that.

I rarely give top scores in a review but this is one of those exceptions. I also don't enjoy staying at small B&Bs / hotels but again this place was an exception. Right upon checkin Lorna the manager was very welcoming and informative. The room was fantastic, the garden was lovely and the staff were the icing on the cake!... More

We spent 4 nights and chose it partly because it's well situated in the island for getting around all areas. It is on the main road (but traffic in Islay not like Birmingham!) so there was a little noise from that. Our room was fine but a little small. The bed was really comfortable and the shower was amazing. The... More

Thank you for your kind review. Sadly with an old building it is inevitable that some rooms will be smaller than others. I hope that the comfy bed and powerful shower helped make up for the size of your room. Though a big investment at the time, the decision to go for top quality beds and showers has been worthwhile,... More

My stay was very short but wonderful and welcoming. Lorena was especially warm and welcoming, suggesting dinner and her laugh was simply infectious. The room was quite spacious and very clean. The water pressure of the shower was out of this world. The hotel is also on a quiet road and the fun at the bar died down around 10:30.

We had a lovely time at this really comfortable hotel. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts were delicious and the staff a perfect combination of friendliness and professionalism. As promised by Lorna, the bed was the most comfortable ever! We shall definitely stay here again.
