Hopefully we have managed to improve our publicity since August last year - we concentrate on looking after our guests, not shouting about it. A little more work on promotion is required. Although this is an historic review, I am really glad you enjoyed yourself and hope that you'll be back soon.

We stayed here sadly for only two nights,from the minute we arrived we were impressed with the warm greeting from Lorna the manager and all her staff.Rooms were superb clean and well furnished,as noted by herself. As we had brought the dog along we ate in the bar which was not a problem .The food choice and quality were first...

Thank you for such a lovely review - I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. For those who don't want to leave their dogs in the car or have them in their room (for a small charge) we do have a dog kennel available that is really handy if it's wet. Just give us a little warning...

When everything fits together it is fantastic! Local beer, good weather, pretty garden, decent room and a delicious dinner. We can't guarantee the weather but we do try to get the rest right. Thank you for your review and I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay.

From when I picked up the phone to book and until we left there was nothing but pleasantness from all the staff.I was wanting a room for four nights but they only had a room for two nights,so they recommended a B&B only five minutes away.The lounge area was comfortable and the diningroom light and airy.Our room was comfortable but...

Thank you for writing a review. One of the features of Islay is that there is not much traffic and therefore few roads. Most of the hotels are, by necessity, close to a road and as the Bridgend Hotel was at one stage a coaching inn, this is to be expected. As you rightly observe there is little noise. I...

We stayed at Bridgend for four nights during the 2015 Whiskey Festival Lorna ,the manageress an d her staff were outstanding in making us feel at home and attentive to our needs. The food was first rate and of course, a well stocked whiskey bar. Beautiful garden and rooms were quiet Who could ask for anything more

This was our 6th trip to Islay but our first overnight at Bridgend Hotel before moving to a cottage we had rented for a week. Not sure about where to stay our first night with several options available, the cottage owner recommended Bridgend Hotel so we went with local advice. We had eaten here before but never stayed. Unfortunately, it...

What a great review - thank you! We have spent a lot of time doing up the rooms and try to do a few major overhauls every year. Room 1 is one of my favourite as it is very quiet, spacious and has a good sized bathroom. It is true that the view is not the best but after a...

We are on a week wildlife tour of the island. The rooms are cosy and very comfortable; the staff friendly and helpful. Dinners are excellent for such a remote location. I will recommend this small hotel to anyone.

Thank you for the great review. Although brief, you do touch on one aspect of running a hotel on Islay - the remoteness. Whilst it is lovely to be miles away from city lights and the hustle and bustle of urban life, the lengthy supply chain and the vagaries of the weather can cause problems. We do try to maintain...

It was our 3rd stay on Islay and at Bridgend for surely several will follow. We love the Island and as well being home at Bridgend. To start the day after a delicious Scottish Breakfast at Bridgend Hotel it is the best place to explore the Island. Across the road of Bridgend Hotel a Shop is located to find drinks,...

I can't say enough about how wonderful this hotel is. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in April/May of 2015 and had the best experience.

Sometimes the travel to and from Islay doesn't quite work out as planned - locals like Lorna are only too well aware of this and therefore very understanding. Apart from that she also runs a pretty good hotel!

We stayed here two nights. The rooms are small but the showers are nice. The breakfasts are very good with many options. We ate dinner here both nights and loved the mussels and salmon. The staff is excellent especially Lorna. They have an excellent selection of Islay scotches to sample.

Thank you for this kind review. Some of the rooms are compact with others a bit bigger, it does depend what is available and (to some extent) what you want to pay. Bridgend Hotel is a 3 Star Hotel so don't expect anything too fancy, but we do try and produce the highest possible standard of service and a good...
