Stayed there for the duration of our 4 day whisky tour with Scottish Routes and what a pleasure it was. Truly wonderful hosts, magnificent full Scottish breakfast and a dram every morning to boot! Everything neat, clean and nice. We had rooms outside the Bowmore house itself and there we could sit down on the second floor in a kitchen and a sitting room area. If I every go back to Islay I'm only staying there! Highly recommended!

This is the 5th hotel/guest house on our travels, and the 5th 5 star review. The hospitality on the Scottish Islands is truly remarkable, and no exception at this magnificent property. One large house with 3 bedrooms, and a lounge/diner area to share with other guests. Cutlery, plates etc available if you decide to bring back a takeaway in the evening. The other guests were a pleasure to meet, with lots of laughs and banter in the evenings. The hosts were extremely accommodating and helpful, and the breakfasts plentiful, with a great choice. Very informative on where to visit, and there are indeed some hidden gems, as well as the many whisky distilleries! A word of warning if you use a sat nav from the ferry port! A couple of miles from the guest house, you may find yourself turning right up a farm track with cow's either side of you! Do not turn up here! The actual turn (signposted Bowmore) is a mile further on. To conclude, I can only agree with all the other 5 star reviews. A great place to stay, and would not hesitate to book again on another visit. Many Thanks.

The Island Bear Bed and Breakfast

The Island Bear bed and breakfast is an ideal place to stay on your visit to Islay. Centrally located on Shore Street in Bowmore it is easy to find and is perfectly positioned for all the necessary holiday conveniences. The Island Bear is open all year.

Fantastic two night stay during Fèis. Great room, facilities, food, bar and staff. Twin room with bunks was perfect with comfy beds and excellent shower. Bar reserved space for us on a very busy Saturday night and the food was very good. Staff were all extremely helpful and really went well beyond expectations.

We had three night's stay atTarbert House and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. Our room was clean, comfortable and warm and there was a great selection for breakfast. The owners and their staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The Peatzeria served good food and we would definitely recommend it. During our stay the other guests were friendly and sociable ~hello Scott and Meg!

Fantastiskt boende. Utsikt över havet, bra sängar och toaletter. Tillgång till komplett kök som var lika rent och fräscht som resten av huset. Promenadavstånd till centrum. Tyst nattetid trots fönster utåt vägen. Hit kommer vi mer än gärna tillbaka.
