Our 4 star Islay hotel is located in a charming, beach-side location in the conservation village of Port Charlotte. The village was built in whitewashed stone in 1828 by Walter Frederick Campbell (The Laird of Islay) and named after his mother, Lady Charlotte.
The front part of the hotel was built in 1829 as 3 cottages, before it was
transformed into a hotel.
Convenient for all the best Islay visitor attractions and activities, including the 8 Islay malt whisky distilleries, great Islay golf at the Machrie, and some of the best bird watching and wildlife watching in Scotland.
With only 10 rooms our little jewel amongst hotels in Islay, provides individual attention to our guests’ unique needs. We are a "home away from home" for many of our guests.
We have an à la carte restaurant serving only the very best of local produce, expertly prepared and cooked, and we also serve excellent bar lunches and evening bar meals in the cosy bar and conservatory.
The hotel is recommended in Michelin & Good Food Guides and is highly rated in the Best of Scotland Guide.
Our residents' lounge
and public bar feature open fires where guests can unwind with convivial company. A must for lovers of Scottish art and traditional music. Local musicians play regularly in the bar. Enjoy an excellent art collection amongst the plethora of memorabilia - with a distinct leaning to 'The Glasgow School' of artists.
