I was traveling to Islay for an overnight stay for work purposes. The building is very nice, particularly the interior, modern and clean. I was greeted at reception by a very engaging and attentive staff member who took me though everything and even showed me round the room - a nice touch. The room was small but I have not...

We stayed one night DBB courtesy of FlyBe as a result of their cancelling our afternoon flight to Glasgow. The welcome from the manager was beyond anything I could have expected in a small urban hotel - for example help with our bags, details of the services on offer and contacting the airline to confirm the morning pick-up time. The...

The Lochside Hotel is a fantastic place to put your feet up after a long days work. I have been travelling back and forth to Islay for several months now, and this place is definitely a thumbs up for me. The food is excellent and staff very welcoming and friendly. I would come here with my family too for sure.

Liked the location in Bowmore which meant it was in a more centrally located part of the island to explore the different distilleries. The room we stayed in (#9) was perfect in allrespects: comfy bed, nice bathroom, great view, tasteful decor, spotlessly clean, tasty breakfast and dinner, quiet. I would recommend this to everyone and would definitely stay here again...

The title is a little bit confusing, maybe :-D It's because you can get drunk there, with excellent stuff! They offer a wide variety of whiskys and you can't find many of them anywhere in the world! Don't miss this chance and start your evening in their excellent restaurant. Nothing fancy-schmancy, excellent plain cooking. Btw. I didn't slept there

Stayed here while over for work and hotel I stayed in before was closed. This hotel was a bit cheaper so I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't have to worry this was just perfect for me. Staff were all friendly and although I arrived early for check-in I was shown to room and did paperwork later. Room was...
