This is our fourth visit to the Port Charlotte and every one has been wonderful. We are in the midst of a month-long Hebridean holiday, but the whole schedule was built around the availability of this hotel. We had a lovely room on the ground floor with a view out over Loch Indaal. We arrived very late on Saturday night,... More

The 3rd visit for me to this lovely pub/restaurant. Everytime I go I make sure it's the live music night (weds and Sundays I'm summer). Food and service is always excellent and the large range of whisky is heaven. Can't wait to visit next year

Staying on Islay for a few days and we booked dinner with friends one evening. Lovely ambiance to the place. Menu was delightful. Had a problem choosing it all looked so good. Husband had a seafood medley which looked and he said tasted amazing. Plenty too. The dining room was comfortable and really nice to have white linen.

We visited the Port Charlotte Hotel several times during our recent holiday to Islay as we were staying on the Port Mor campsite nearby. We drank in here several times, during the day and the evening and saw the gaelic band a few times (live gaelic music during the summer on weds and sun, and we also caught a singer/songwriter...

Sorry we were here in 2015. Excellent: staff, service, food, ambience, bedroom small/cosy but very well decorated and comfortable. Surely one of Scotland's, Britain's, the worlds most special places to stay and eat.

In the words of Tina Turner, it's simply the best. The combination of location, accommodation, catering, whisky range and very very friendly staff make The Port Charlotte Hotel simply the best. Very welcoming with food ranging from bbq to bar food to restaurant food and a range of beers, wines and whiskies to compliment the menus. Don't visit Islay without... More

As frequent visitors to Islay we had never visited this hotel, but had heard good things about the food and so our party of four decided to book a table for an evening meal there last Saturday (13 August). We arrived around an hour early for our reservation, so decided to have a drink in the bar while we waited.... More

On a Saturday night we hoped to eat. We were told it was fully booked but luckily the barman came running after us down the street to say a table had come free. We were most impressed. The meal was fine. I felt a more modern presentation of the food would have enhanced the experience. Also within 1 minute of... More

Dinner in the downstairs conservatory – that was all that was available for a late booking on a busy night. The food was very good and locally sourced where possible. All the dishes were expertly cooked and nicely presented, the langoustine salad is highly recommended as is the cheese board. The young waiters were friendly and helpful. Afterwards we went... More
