We were only 3 people and could have easily fit more friends in this cute and excellently located house in the middle of Port Ellen. Host was great, lots of information to share. Feels like having a real harbour during your Islay visit. Since the two whisky enthusiasts of the trio are "gold coast" fans, we were in the best location possible - walking distance from the closest three distilleries on the east coast north of Port Ellen. Restaurants, shops and the local pub are all a few steps away. The garden is charming, we had breakfast there every morning the weather allowed (we're not spoilt from home, so it was pretty much every day...) Would stay here again and warmly recommend Islay 65 to anyone!
Perfect location. Convenient for pubs and restaurants. Friendly welcome with milk, coffee and biscuits laid out for us. Cannot fault the accommodation in any way. We wanted for nothing (except more time on the island). Peaceful back garden which we would have liked more time to enjoy of a quiet evening sipping a dram. The house is family friendly but was just as good for our group of 4 guys. Very highly recommended. Definitely will come back here again.
I've been in this house more than 5 times and it keeps getting better and better.
The house is very well located. It's clean and wonderfully decorated.
The three rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the garden is charming.
The owner and the housekeeper are so nice and welcoming.
I can't think of anything negative to say about this place. It's simply perfect and it feels like home.
Warm and friendly welcome from Susan to a lovely cottage, very well appointed, and extremely comfortable. Great position, being a few minutes from the ferry terminal, most opposite the village green and beach, and just yards from the Post Office, Co-Op, and pub !
We will be back.
A very cosy house with everything you could possibly need. Lovely welcome from Susan and everything ready for us. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, satisfactory shower and well equipped kitchen.
Very handy for the ferry, only a couple of minutes to the harbour.
Small coop just a few yards away and Islay Hotel also handy for a nice meal.
