Stayed 2 nights, booked with the proprietor Don, was sent detailed email of check in and things of interest close to the accommodation, was welcomed by Susan and shown around the accommodation, very friendly and warm, nothing too much trouble, room excellent, en-suite shower amazing, whole Lodge immaculate, excellent continental breakfast, 3 minute drive from ferry port, Co-op, restaurant and pub all walking distance, must see distilleries Ardbeg, Bunnahabhain and our favourite Ardnahoe excellent restaurant for lunch. Beautiful beaches, American war monument worth the drive on single track dirt road then half hour walk, view breathtaking. Will return to Islay and the Lodge will be my first stop.

Friendly welcomed by Susan & shown around at convenient time for us in relation to ferry times. Close to ferry, Coop and the most beautiful beach a few steps out of the front door. Very clean, tidy stay with personal touches like the wee bottle of whisky! Homely feel with plenty of interesting pictures on the wall. Continental breakfast very good, Covid rule compliant

Well appointed B & B. Very comfortable and warm. Good continental breakfast. Proprietor and staff very friendly and accommodating. We can highly recommend the lodge and if we return to Islay we will definitely try to revisit the lodge. Best B & B we have been to for some years.
