“A Well Equipped Cottage In A Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From the initial email from the owner, packed full of useful information, and the welcome tour by the friendly housekeeper Susan I knew that this was going to be a lovely holiday. These people really care about your stay and have equipped the cottage to make it really comfortable.

Port Ellen is a perfect base for doing the whiskey tours of Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Lagavulin. We managed to visit all three in a day!

Thanks again to John and Susan

Management Response
19 Aug 2015
Following this short stay we should perhaps remind all guests that Islay65 is a self catering outlet without resident housekeeper. It is not a guest house, a bed and breakfast or a hotel. Any changes to advised arrival time, whether resulting from a change in travel plans, a breakdown or ferry delays/diversions, should be advised to our house keeper in good time by text or phone call. Her telephone number is provided to guests for this purpose. As a self catering outlet it is furthermore the responsibility of guests to provide their own toilet rolls, kitchen towels, hand soap, tea, coffee, etc.for the period of their stay. A limited but quite generous supply of these 'essential commodities', including milk, is provided in the cottage for the use of guests when they first arrive but it is not intended that this alleviate guests of their inherent responsibility to provide their own supplies.

“Perfect Island Break”

person found this review helpful

We spent a super week in Port Ellen. The cottage was just perfect, spacious and had everything we could have asked for. It was spotlessly clean and a tea/coffee/biscuit tray awaited us on our arrival. Susan passed on local information etc to us together with the keys and made us feel very welcome (including our small 'westie' dog).

“Superb self catering accommodation”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Six of us stayed here for the beach rugby and it is very well equipped and comfortable with a great enclosed garden to sit out in if the weather allows. It is pet friendly and the dog loved roaming about the garden and across the road is the beach too which is ideal.The master bedroom has a massive, really comfortable bed and another double bedroom upstairs. Downstairs is a bedroom with bunks and there is a bathroom on each floor. The dining room is a generous size as is the kitchen. The town is small and nothing is far away with a couple of pubs and restaurants. One of the good things about Islay is that everyone is very relaxed and friendly and you feel very welcome.Even the local Police gave us a wave as we drove out of Port Ellen. Well, I think he was just being friendly and we didn't stop anyway!
