This was a special birthday break - and our first visit to Islay. From the moment we arrived on the island after the short flighty from Glasgow we had a wonderful time. The friendliness of the islanders no matter where we visited was outstanding... and the same can be said of the Harbour Inn. This was a rare hotel experience - fully enjoying the amenities, a beautiful bedroom, the top notch food, and a staff that cared. It is often easy to find fault with hotels but, on this occasion, we have to say that the Harbour Inn is right up there with the very best. We enjoyed the stay on the island so much - the car hire service from Mr McKenzie of Islay car hire was first rate - that we are already looking at a return next year to explore this island - and make the short ferry trip to Jura as well.
