The Lochside Hotel is a fantastic place to put your feet up after a long days work. I have been travelling back and forth to Islay for several months now, and this place is definitely a thumbs up for me. The food is excellent and staff very welcoming and friendly. I would come here with my family too for sure.

Liked the location in Bowmore which meant it was in a more centrally located part of the island to explore the different distilleries. The room we stayed in (#9) was perfect in allrespects: comfy bed, nice bathroom, great view, tasteful decor, spotlessly clean, tasty breakfast and dinner, quiet. I would recommend this to everyone and would definitely stay here again...

The title is a little bit confusing, maybe :-D It's because you can get drunk there, with excellent stuff! They offer a wide variety of whiskys and you can't find many of them anywhere in the world! Don't miss this chance and start your evening in their excellent restaurant. Nothing fancy-schmancy, excellent plain cooking. Btw. I didn't slept there

Staff were all friendly and although I arrived early for check-in I was shown to room and did paperwork later. Room was...

The personnel was kind and attentive - especially the waitress at the restaurant. Rooms are generously equiped with all things necessary, and cleaned every day. Breakfast is plentiful. To be improved: the interior isolation, which is quite poor - e. g. we could hear the next-door guy snoring; the room vibrated when people walked on the corridor. Superior rooms are...

We stayed in Lochside hotel two nights in a family suite. The room was really big, with a huge bed, good pillows and a bathroom with shower. The hotel is in great location close to the bus stop in Bowmore centrum. The staff is nice and the food in the hotel restaurant tasty. It was also nice to be able...
