It is BY FAR the best place I've stayed (and I've traveled quite a bit). There nothing to beat waking up and see the stormy coast. You feel truly alone with the world. The location is stunning, the pod is very well organised and comfortable and Gus is great. He gave us very good tips based on what we wanted...

I'm slightly reluctant to give a review as I'd really like to keep this place a secret. We stayed for a week (2 adults, 2 kids and a dog) and I can honestly say it's one of the best holidays we've had. The pods are compact but have everything you could possibly need. The views are amazing (we spent hours...

Brilliant! Can't say less than that, we only stayed 1 night in the Lagavulin Pod but it had everything we needed and the location is sublime. Nice welcome and then we didn't need any other help, We must have been lucky as we had a clear night and the stars were just amazing and the walk along the shore at...

I didn't book this so didn't really pay a lot of attention to the details / photos etc so it was my own fault when I was full of trepidation before arriving. However I was more than pleasantly suprised. We stayed in the Lagavulin pod which I think is the smallest but perfect for two.It was clean, well equiped and...

Fantastic setting and location. Accommodation very clean and perfect for a family of 4. Situated next to Lagavulin and a 10-15 minute walk to Laphroaig and Ardbeg. Helpful host and a very nice touch on our doorstep on our last day!

Not our normal option for accommodation (we normally stay in our tent at campsites) so were a bit hesitant about our 3 night visit but we absolutely adored our wee pod. We had a large grass area outside which the kids thoroughly enjoyed playing in. A very relaxing stay...thank you

Feel like I shouldn't be telling you all how great this place is because it will get booked out and we won't be able to go back but it is great, views are wonderful and perfectly places for the distilleries, Gus was very friendly and polite too

We stayed in the Lagavulin Pod. The location was amazing and it was a fun stay. Something different and comfortable. The view was perfect and the location even better (as a Lagavulin and Laphroaig lover).

We stayed for 3 nights as part of my birthday celebrations. The location is stunning and the pods well equiped and cosy. Main bonus - 3 of my favourite distilleries within walking distance, whilst port ellen - for provisions/meals/drinks is only a 30-40 minute walk away. The south of the island has some breathtaking scenery. Main star of the show...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fancy a camping-style holiday on Islay but want a little luxury? Islay Pods are now available to book online, for a true glamping experience, with prices starting at just £70 per night! These high quality, well equipped glamping pods offer a luxurious approach to the traditional camping experience without losing the freedom and tranquillity of that "back to nature" experience. Because the pods are heated, they offer warm and cosy accommodation - "camping all year round"! We have two pods, the Lagavulin Pod and the Ardbeg Pod sleeping up to 4 and 6 people. The Pods are set in Lagavulin Bay on the beautiful Isle of Islay, an area of outstanding natural beauty where golden eagles and otters are frequent visitors and situated right next door to the famous whiskey distilleries of Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg. ... more   less
