Thank you for your review. Lorna and the rest of the Bridgend staff work together as a tight knit team. Making guests feel welcome and comfortable is something that they do well, and enjoy doing for appreciative guests. Whilst I accept that I am biased, I think Islay is lovely and we are particularly fortunate with the setting of the...

Last week we spent a night at the Bridgend Hotel to celebrate our second wedding anniversary, and from the moment we arrived Carol-Ann made us feel completely relaxed and at home. The hotel is beautifully decorated throughout with lovely spacious rooms, a cosy bar and beautiful gardens. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful and the food is incredible....

We spent a very lovely couple of nights here last weekend, Lorna runs this place with charming efficiency and this is reflected in the demeanour of all her staff. The food is exellent and locally sourced, a great hotel.

This is our second time staying at the Bridgend Hotel and it is a great little hotel with excellent food and friendly staff. We received a very warm welcome from Lorna and her brilliant team when we arrived late from the boat crossing. We were offered a delicious super; my fish and my husbands steak were perfectly cooked and nicely...

All hotels on Islay appear to charge a premium because of the limited supply of accommodation. Our room was reasonably large and the bed comfortable. Bathroom was tiny and poorly designed. Staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. Meals disappointed and were only average quality. Online reports gave higher expectation. Breakfast was good.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write a review. I am very sorry that your experience with us did not live up to your expectations. The Hotel is a very old building which constrains what we have been able to do to change structurally, this limits access to rooms and how we can run plumbing etc. I...

Thank you very much for your kind review. As you have kindly commented, it is not at all unusual for Lorna and the Hotel team to help arrange things for our guests, it is very much all "part-and-parcel" of the service. I know that the Hotel team enjoy looking after guests who appreciate their efforts. I am very pleased that...

Everyone was welcoming and friendly at this lovely place, from Lorna the manager and all the restaurant and bar staff. We ate here 3 nights in a row and every meal was superb! Would highly recommend this for a place to stay on Islay

My wife and I spent two nights at the Bridgend Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel is very centrally located on Islay, being 12-15 miles from all the main places to visit.
