We based ourselves, our family and friends here for our wedding. We got married in the gardens at Kiloran house but we ate and drank the night away at the hotel. The hotel has been decorated beautifully, reflecting the coastal venue and the rooms were very nice. However, this place is made brilliant by the manager Ivan and his staff.... More

Stayed at the Colonsay Hotel last week end and found the whole experience to be fantastic. We have been in the hotel trade for over twenty years and this hotel ticked all the boxes. The manager Ivan was amazing and could not do enough for us. He made our stay perfect.

Our room was "Cable Bay" lovely room with a view of the Gardens and the sea. Staff ( albeit a bit short handed) were super efficient and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Had a few drinks sitting out in the Garden, there was a lovely wee breeze that kept the midges away. Food was excellent had something... More

Our friends invited us to Colonsay and we were wowed. Blessed with fabulous sunshine for all 4 days, we found the Island, the people and the hospitality at 'The Colonsay' all stunning. Rooms were clean and comfortable, food very good and the quiz night and live music nights were great.

What a wonderful surprise this hotel was. We arrived on the lovely island of Colonsay and within minutes we were checking into this fabulous hotel. The décor was very tasteful and just up my street. I was very impressed with all the food, especially the vegetarian options. The staff were very helpful and professional. I was sad to leave and... More

The Colonsay is everything you want from a hotel - fabulous location, efficient and friendly service and wonderful food. All of this delivered in a very relaxed environment - interior simple but stylish and service second to none. Very highly recommend visiting this wonderful hotel and island. We were so lucky with our weather which was also amazing.

When choosing which islands to visit, we were attracted to Colonsay having read reviews of this hotel. Had this not been an entry in The Good Pub Guide we would not have gone to Colonsay. The room was extremely spacious, the hotel beautiful and spotless and the service from Ivan and his team was excellent. Lovely breakfasts and a good... More

We spent a lovely few days on the beautiful island of Colonsay. There is only 1 hotel on the island! This was OK. Our room was clean and well equipped although the shower room was minute. There was barely room to spread your arms to towel yourself dry! The manager was very friendly, especially as he had previously lived and... More

Brilliant and wished... More
