We stayed 3 nights at The Ballygrant Inn and have no hesitation in recommending it. The location is close to the ferry at Port Askaig and around 30 mins from most of the distilleries. The road to the very atmospheric Finlaggan is nearby.There are 7 bedrooms, 4 downstairs and 3 upstairs. I don't know about the upstairs rooms but those... More

Soulless, lifeless, uninterested, rude. Called in 3 days before to ask if we could bring our dog and was told yes. Was it ok just to call in? Yes, we were told. Decided on Saturday evening (6.45) to pay a visit with my wife, son and dog. Was met by I believe the son of the business as we pulled... More

Loved the 4 and 3 legged welcoming committee ! Very comfortable, spotlessly clean room with a view across the garden. Food was excellent, fresh cooked mostly local produce . Bar holds one of the best single malt collections I have ever found.

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation that the food was tasty and had a great homemade feel, but the service was a little slow. Since we weren't in a hurry we decided to give it a try on a Friday evening. The menu had about 8 items on it and I was disappointed that there was not a... More

We had a great weekend exploring the island and enjoying a few wee drams at distilleries and in the bar at Ballygrant Inn. Food and refreshments were excellent and rooms comfortable and good value. Hospitality from the hosts is first class, knowledgeable and engaging people.

Room was excellent, newly refurbished with en suite and the usual tea coffee etc. But the food was perfect, if your looking for fast food I would suggest you head for Bowmore, but if your happy to relax and have a couple of pre dinner drinks it will be well worth the wait, David serves the best locally sourced produce...

Called in to the Whisky Bar at Ballygrant Inn for lunch whilst waiting for my ferry... Only had a cheese and ham toastie but it was tasty and the salad dressing was lovely. Overall very happy ... great selection of whisky - if only I hadn't been driving!

This place is large and popular with the locals. The food is of good quality and with a log fire burning would be great in the Spring or Autumn. The service was good and the food first class. We would return without hesitation.

We were welcomed by a three legged cat and two very friendly dogs! As an animal lover, this was home from home. My room was well equipped with neutral decoration. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathrobe felt like an added luxury. The bar and restaurant area had a good atmosphere. The food was excellent and David went to... More
