Plenty of space, high quality accommodation. Clean. Great location. Can't fault it - even got a free bottle of Bowmore 12 included and the distillery tour. Use of the local leisure centre is also nice! :) lots to do, nice shops, walking and the 8 distillery a on Islay. Jura only a 15 minute drive and 5 minute ferry away.

I've been there with a Rabbies tour and I found the location and the premises higly satisfactory. I was in the Maltman cottage, inside the Bowmore distillery, right in front of the Visitor Center. My room was big, with a couple of windows, one of them looking to the bay. Furniture all right, well furnished kitchen with all the necessary...

Absolutely Fabulous! We were a group of 8 touring whisky distilleries on Islay. We took the Old Bakery and it was well worth it for us. It has 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, huge living room and several seating areas. There's a huge kitchen with everything you'd ever need to cook a slap-up dinner for 8. It was spotlessly clean....

Located in what was once distillery workers' lodging, located next door to Bowmore Distillery, in an extremely convenient location near restaurants, stores, etc. Each cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and is totally renovated. While you may cook and eat in cottage, beware that you must not leave any food behind when you depart, or will be assessed a few....

The Bowmore cottages were basically attached/next door to the Bowmore distillery. You couldn't ask for a better location to explore the town of Bowmore from let alone a great location to be based out of to explore the whole island and all of it's charm. Their are a few nearby restaurants, but be sure to have reservations if dining during...

9 of us stayed in the old bakery, and found it to be excellent accommodation. It is very spacious inside, and would easily have accommodated our better half's aswell! It is a very clean, modern and comfortable house, with everything you require provided. Well placed for the shop, leisure centre and bars/restaurants. The bottle of Bowmore 12 year was an...

For us The cottages are the best accommodation option on Islay. Very clean and comfortable with all the required amenities for an undisruptive holiday. Spent a whole week we managed to visit all the distlleries on the island

Just came back from a holiday on Islay and stayed at the Maltman's Cottage for 9 nights. What can I say: it was just great! The cottage provides everything one could possibly need: toaster, microwave, water heater for tea, dishwasher, washing machine, hug fridge/freezer. The kitchen and the living room might get a bit tight if 6 people were living...
