Welcome to Port Askaig Hotel
Port Askaig Hotel is a picturesque, family run Highland Inn on the shores of the Sound of Islay, overlooking the pier at which daily car ferries berth on arrival from the Scottish mainland. Due to its proximity to the ferry, the hotel offers easy access to Jura, Colonsay and the mainland. The hotel has been in family ownership for over 50 years.
Situated in arguably the best coastal location in Islay this old drove inn offers a mix of 11 double/twin/family rooms + 1 single room - all with en-suite facilities. The apartment is NOT available for self catering from 1 April until November 30th annually – the two completely refurbished rooms are now en suite and are available for full summer season on a B&B basis – both have stunning views over the small harbour and Sound of Islay to the Isle of Jura. Guests resident in the apartment have shared use of a small tv lounge.
At Port Askaig Hotel you can find quality malts and a menu featuring local Islay meat and seafood from the daily catch.
