This ten-bedroom hotel started life as three cottages built in 1829 along with the rest of cute Port Charlotte village on the island of Islay. The bedrooms are a bit tight, but what they lack in size they make up for in character. All but one have fantastic views on to Loch Indaal and many face east to catch the rising sun (ask for rooms one or three, which have a particularly panoramic outlook). The dining room, which also overlooks the sea loch, serves hearty seafood chowders, local fish, and generous slabs of Islay beef and lamb. The black-beamed bar—where live bands regularly play traditional music—has an excellent whisky selection, and malts from the nearby Bruichladdich Distillery take pride of place alongside the numerous distilleries featured here. The price includes breakfast.
