We were nicely received and shown to our room by a very pleasant lady. After refreshing in our room we went down for dinner. We were invited to sit in the lounge and look at the menu. Once chosen we were taken to the dinning room which has a lovely view over a charming garden. Our stay was just perfect.

Bridgend is a large home with ample rooms, fantastic king beds, a comfortable lounge, pub room and large dining room with a beautiful garden adjoining. Food and drink selections are generous and very good. It is centrally located on the island for trips to all eight distilleries,...

Sometimes the reviewers sum up what we are trying to achieve much better than we can. Thank you for this lovely review, I am really glad you enjoyed your time at Bridgend Hotel and I don’t think we could have written our aims and values as succinctly as you have.

The Bridgend hotel is without doubt the best hotel i have stayed at for friendliness and genuine hospitality. The manager, Laura was a star and all the staff were genuinely happy to be of service and cheerful. The accommodation was truly comfortable, homely rather than sumptuous, but absolutely spotless, neat and comfy. The warmth of the people in the area...

Thank you for this wonderful review – Lorna takes great pride in Bridgend Hotel – as do all the staff – so it is lovely to be complimented in such a way. We are only a 3 star Hotel – just in case anyone expects all the 5 star extras – but we do try to be the best we...

This is a lovely review, thank you. Without wishing to detract from the welcome praise, I would point out that we’re a Hotel and therefore offer dinner as well as bed and breakfast. We’re also licensed and stock whiskies from all the island’s distilleries as well as wines & beers. Having an over-warm room on Islay is not something that...

Once again had a super welcome and a most enjoyable evening in this lovely restaurant. The food was good, the chef could have raised his standards a tiny bit higher. Great service and lovely atmosphere. Well recommended as the best place to eat on the Island. It was lovely to be welcomed back by the staff, despite it being 6...

Thank you for this review. I am a bit disappointed to hear that the chef could have been better – we have really worked on the food this year and have a great team in the kitchen.

For anyone visiting the Isle of Islay it is surprising how the shape of the island and the road network mean it can take a long drive to get from one part of the island to another. The Bridgend Hotel is virtually at the centre of the island road network and provides a good standard of accommodation (our bedroom and...

Lorna and her team’s friendly manner went beyond good service; their welcoming attitude made our stay a great experience. They made you feel special.
