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

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

We stayed here for 4 nights while we spent the days touring the isle. The room and bathroom were very clean. Bathroom was very spacious with a tub! The view was amazing. The staff was very friendly at the front desk, in the dining room and in the bar. The live music was delightful on Wednesday night. Unfortunately the wifi... More

Had dinner here on a Monday evening. Restaurant was very quiet but we got put in the corner and it felt rushed. The food was lovely, particularly the starters of crab and quail. The deserts were OK. The music kept jumping which was a bit annoying but we were told this couldn't be helped. For less money we had better... More

Heading for Islay? Then you have to visit the Port Charlotte Hotel. Fantastic atmosphere with warm, welcoming staff AND customers. Live music twice a week in the small but intimate bar area. If you love whisky, you'll have a ball here, but don't ask for the likes of Bells etc or you may be shown the door. Very busy place,... More

We had a lovely 2 nights at this hotel. The staff was very friendly, the room spotless. Although the double bed was on the small side we had a beautiful view over the sea and woke to spectacular sunrises. The bar was very popular so we were unable to find a place to sit however the lounge was very comfortable... More
