“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This came so close to being a five star review and the only reason it's not is for the price, I thought our room lacked a little bit of character. The room was very comfortable, newly renovated I would guess and with amazing public areas with some of the best views you could ever imagine. Breakfast was served at the sister property, the Harbour Inn which was delicious and very filling and the staff were really friendly.
Really, I have no real complaints regarding this and feel i'm being harsh only marking it as very good. I'm really not sure even what they could do to add character to the place as it has been done to a very high spec.
When we return to Islay I would definitely stay here again though and would recommend it to anyone else visiting too.
