We booked into the Islay Hotel for the weekend as we were attending a birthday party in Port Ellen. The staff were very friendly and heplful, the room was very spacious and the bathroom had a jacuzzi bath. We arrived early on the Saturday morning and although breakfast was just finished it was no problem for our friends and ourselves to have a full breakfast - plenty of choice with lovely croissants and pastries. Dinner on the Saturday night, breakfast on Sunday was also excellent.
The hotel is very tastefully decorated with a great ambience throughout - bar area well stocked and a very pleasant area to relax in with friends. We would thoroughly recommend the hotel and hope to return ourselves in the near future.
