We stayed at Bowmore Hotel for 4 nights, and enjoyed our stay tremendously. The rooms had been redone and the hotel had a charming character to it. It's a really cozy place, coziness amplified by the attentive, service-oriented and knowledgeable staff. We had a whisky tasting session with Peter Jr., and enjoyed it tremendously. It must be noted that the...

We had a drink in here first and met the locals and what a night. They are fantastic and a good laugh. We then decided to eat here and the restaurant is spacious and comfortable.

We are still currently staying at the Bowmore Hotel and I am so impressed that I have decided to rate it even before we leave. Our room is amazing! The bed is super comfy and the bathroom is nice. While dining for dinner, a man in a three piece suit is running food, grabbing drinks, clearing plates, and still had...

From the moment we arrived we had fun. Well, who wouldn't on an island dedicated to making the finest whisky on the planet IMHO. The locals made us welcome. The staff made us welcome. I highly recommend the place. I can get a bit rowdy in the main bar, so if you are looking for a quiet escape you may...

My wife and I spent a few days in this home from home hotel on Isle of Islay, great food, good location, very relaxing Accomodation. The only facility it lacks is a sitting room to chill, before going upstairs to our bedroom.

We had a nice dinner at Bowmore Hotel. The quality of service and food was to our complete satisfaction. I had two starters, which was not a problem at all. The Whisky list of the bar is comprehensive. We did like the special furniture of the restaurant.
