We were visiting Islay for a long weekend and booked in to the Finlaggan Suite at 40 Pier Road for our stay. The suite was excellent - good sized bed, sofa/tv area, large bathroom with bath and shower and between them a small dressing area. It was perfect for a long weekend but would be an ideal size if you...

This was for us the perfect place to stay in Port Ellen. The location is great and the room was just everything we look for in accommodation. Eleanor provided a great breakfast and was extremely helpful. So much so that she knew that we intended to walk to a distillery, she had offered us a lift, but we said we...

The outside of the B&B is a bit unprepossessing, but my room (suite, in fact, there's a sitting room as well as the bedroom and bathroom) was very comfortable. The beds are soft, but that's a matter of personal preference. Breakfasts were large (if you wanted) and very tasty, with a good choice, including some local products. I didn't use...

Great place to stay in Port Ellen. The rooms are very large, extremely comfortable and clean. Eleanor provided a delicious breakfast each morning. Perfectly located for visiting the Laphroaig, Ardbeg and Lagavulin distilleries - and if you enjoy walking take the "three distilleries walk" so you can enjoy your visit to the distilleries. If we ever visit Islay again, would...

We stayed in the Finlaggen Suite for 4 nights, and it was the best of all the places we stayed on our holiday. The room was spacious, quiet and very, very comfortable. The place is very close to the ferry terminal, but we were not disturbed by any noise from this. Every morning we had a brilliant breakfast served by...

Very nice, clean and warm B&B. The owner is very helpful with organizing your stay on Islay and sometimes even with transportation:). Localization of this B&B couldn't be better. It's just next to the ferry pier.

We rented the Finlaggen Suite, which was one of the most spacious rooms of our entire trip. Breakfast was great every day. We also received great advice on things to do and places to visit. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Islay. Closest BNB to ferry terminal. Literally a walk.

We had originally planned to spend two days on Islay. However, our flight from Glasgow could not land, and our visit shrank to one day. Eleanor went out of her way to make sure we maximized our time on the island. She picked us up at the airport and made arrangements for us to have a car and driver to...

Very friendly, kind and welcoming b and b. A delicious and hearty breakfast was served each day. Good advice is offered for tourist ideas. Superbly positioned in Port Ellen and literally next door to the port (but beautifully quiet). We absolutely and unequivocally recommend.
