We've been on the road for 3 weeks now, and the welcome we received at Loch Gruinart House was wonderful. Comfortable rooms, wide selection self-serve breakfast, and most of all extraordinarily friendly hosts! I would definitely recommend staying here if you're traveling Islay.

From the moment we arrived at Loch Gruinart House, we knew we would enjoy our stay. We were given a hearty greeting by our host, Jack, then shown to our very attractive, comfortable rooms. We especially liked the common room which had a space for lounging and meeting other guests as well as dining. The house is located on the... More

At Loch Gruinart House, you find the perfect place to stay - only the nature and its tunes to be heard, complete tranquility. With Catherine and Jack as hosts, you find the perfect people accommodating you. Whatever you want to know about the area - they will know. Any help required? They will help!

We spend 3 nights at this B&B and it was amazing. The host was more than hospitable. He told us a lot about the region, activities, restaurants etc. He even made time for us during rugby matches of national importance ;-). We really felt like pampered guests. Everyday the room was cleaned when we got back. Maybe this is considered... More

There is something about this place ..... totally welcoming, we loved it. I think it has a subtle style, smart yet cosy. It was as if you were staying in a friend's house. Big bedroom, comfortable lounge, amazing value. We enjoyed fruit/cereal/fresh bread breakfast rather than cooked, and self-service made it relaxed. Top recommendations from Jack for walks and bird...

Really enjoyed our 3 night stay. Great hosts, made us feel very welcome. Very clean room with en-suite and comfy bed (bedlinen must be 900tc, luxurious or what!)
