I, being a whisky enthusiast since long and an ardent fan of Islay single malts, specially the ones in the south which happens to be at the Port Ellen, viz, Lagavulin, Ardbeg and Laphroaig, was looking for a B&B around there and some how, luckily was given the number of Laphroaig View by another B&B who were not in the exact vicinity of the distilleries.To my delight they had a room and the B&B was just a short walk from all the distilleries.
I arrived at Port Ellen a little late in the evening by the ferry around 8:30 PM, and was received by the owner who was kind enough to offer me a pick-up from the terminal to the B&B.
After a very short drive from the terminal we arrived at the B&B, which reminds you of some landscape paintings. Gorgeous!
I asked for a cup of tea before crashing down in the bed and calling it a day, the lady owner, Carol got me a nice dram of Laphroaig with it which was just an icing over the cake... perfect!!!

The B&B is newly done and it has started operating very recently. The rooms are nice and cosy making your stay very comfortable and relaxing. The view from the room is just stunning. On a nice clear day you could possibly see Ireland. The place is like a picturesque postcard, stunning view, quiet and very relaxing.
The breakfast in the dining area was nice and fresh perfect way to start my day. well thats exactly what you need if you have some robust and potent whiskies lined up ahead in the day.
I opted to walk down for all the distilleries... the first up road, just a 10 mins walk from there is Laphroaig, the last on the road is Ardbeg and Lagavulin is in the middle of these two with around couple of miles from each other or probably less. But the walk in itself is a different experience, you soak in the amazing scenery while capturing every moment and the views in your camera.
The tasting session and the tours were really nice.. loved the one at Laphroaig and Lagavulin. It was a dream come true!!!!
The Ardbeg Cafe is really nice.. do check that place out in lunch... really nice food.
i finished my last tour and tasting session at Laphroaig around 5:30pm and went straight to the Port Ellen and to my surprise i found an Indian restaurant there. it was like wow an Indian on an island with a population of 3000 owned by a Scottish lady, ah, just amazing!
After the dinner had few night caps at the local pub next door to the Restaurant.. its a very small place but with the most brilliant collection of single malt whiskies.
Had a nice little walk back to the B&B to my room, where a chilled bottle of natural spring water was waiting for me. With pitch dark surrounding, pin drop silence and warm and comfy bed, I had the best sleep ever. slept like a baby!!!!
well, sadly, I had to leave in the morning.
Had the delicious and sumptuous breakfast and Carol was kind and gracious enough to drop me back to Port Ellen for the ferry.
Overall, its a perfect place for a nice break from your city life, from the concrete jungle... and if you love your whisky its a must.
The B&B is a home away from home. and the owner will make you feel that way.
Very nice, warm and friendly!!!
Highly Recommended!!

I as looking for a B&B near Laphroaig distillery and found this gem. It has only been running for a short time but I found my stay a wonderful and relaxing experience. The house is quite new and my room, which looked out over to Ireland and Laphroaig Distillery, was fab. It's only a 10 minute walk to Laphroaig where I had a fantastic tour with some great whisky. Go for the Water to whisky tour.Ok it's a little bit dear compared to the ordinary tour, but it's worth every penny! Also visited Lagavulin and Ardbeg, both of which are just up the road. What a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I relaxed in the evening with a dram and had a nice evening meal at the B&B which I found was perfect for me. After being out all day it was nice to just come down from my room for dinner. Just like a hotel but a lot cheaper. After dinner I went up to my room and opened my window.I couldn't get over how quiet it was. The odd cow mooing and that was about it. I stood at the large open roof light window in my room for what seemed like ages just soaking in the serenity. I slept the best sleep that night for a long, long time.

After my spring water shower the next morning (I kid you not, the water is all spring water!), which was amazing, I then had the breakfast of all breakfasts. 10/10.

I said my goodbyes and walked down to Port Ellen ferry port, which took 30 minutes. I reckon I could have done it quicker but I stopped to photograph the pet lambs who came running up to me thinking they were going to get bottle fed!

As you leave Islay by ferry you pass Laphroaig Distillery, with Laphroaig View B&B above it on the hill. I would recommend a visit to anyone who likes their whisky and I will certainly be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good. I was in room 2
