Ardoran House, hotel in Iona

Breakfast was marvelous. Done to perfection. There was a good variety of food available. The location of the house to the venues I was interested in seeing was excellent. Richard was a gracious host and very accommodating. I could not have asked for better!

Iona Pods, hotel in Iona

Featuring mountain views and only a 10-minute walk to sandy beaches, Iona Pods features pod accommodations in Iona on a working croft. Complimentary WiFi is provided.

The Pods were great! Our family of 2 adults + 2 kids fit perfectly. Our time on Iona was rainy and moody, and it was kind of amazing hearing the wind around the pods at night - we felt like we were really at the edge of the world (in a good way!), while also being perfectly warm and cozy. The pods are so well laid out: the pods that fit an indoor table & chairs in addition to the outdoor picnic table. The mini-kitchen had everything we needed: an induction cooker (single burner), a pot, cutting board, knives, mugs, utensils, a tub for dirty dishes; and dish towels. The Pods are a short walk to the beaches on the northern end of the island which are beautiful, and right in front of Dun I which you can climb to see the entire island. Also just a 10-15 min walk to the shops and ferry. I really can’t say enough good things - it was a perfect stay!

Martyrs Bay Rooms, hotel in Iona

Martyrs Bay Rooms offers accommodations in Iona, a 7-minute walk from Iona Abbey.

Very comfortable and ideally situated just around the corner from the ferry and by the beach. A lovely stay and particularly enjoyed the conversations about the island over breakfast. Lovely scones for breakfast, too.

    The three nights we stayed in a comfortable and well equipped’pod’ were amazing. Looking out over the Iona Abbey was the icing on the cake, sheltered at the foot of Iona’s highest hill. The north circular walk was amazing. Joining the pilgrims for a welcome service at the Abbey was really enjoyable and friendly. The island has so much history and culture to absorb. Peace touching earth. White sandy bays were stunning. Wide variety of affordable eating places and a well stocked Spar shop. Pizzas were heavenly! It did help to have wall to wall sunshine throughout our stay 🌞🙏🏻👍 The islanders are so welcoming.

    Iona is the most peaceful, beautiful and awe inspiring place. You need to go there and get lost in the hills, explore the whole perimeter and soak up the healing quality of this picturesque and wild place!

    Iona is like no place else on Earth.

    Iona is like no place else on Earth. Although steeped in religious history, you don't have to be a devout believer in anything to know that this is a special place. It gets you as soon as you step off the ferry - peace, calm, tranquility, call it what you like. You can't describe it, just feel it and it has to be experienced. Almost otherworldly, the island itself welcomes you and seems glad to see you. Try a candlelit evening service in the Abbey - everyone welcome, believer or not - and you are participating in a thousand years of ongoing history. Awe-inspiring.

    Iona is a small Island packed with so much history and the most fantastic views! If you like to hike but aren't in the greatest shape (like me) then Iona is the place for you! We hiked 3 to 4 hours all over Iona and saw so many amazing views, gorgeous beaches, wonderful trails to hike, and very friendly sheep to keep us company! The sun didn't set until well past 11pm (2100 hours) so we had plenty of time after dinner to see the sites and explore almost every coast of the island. The west side of the island had cliffs, beaches, and hiking trails that could have kept us busy for a few days if we had been able to stay longer. I definately recommend Iona as a 2 day destination for those who love fresh air and the glory of nature.

    The Island is small & you can easily complete the sights in a one day visit. A short walk to the highest point for a panoramic view. lovely sandy bay beaches. The Abbey was the highlight for me. I enjoyed attending one of the daily services & walking round the Abbey & visiting the gift shop opposite, which had a lot of very interesting books. I learnt about Celtic Christianity. I would recommend a visit to the Island if you are exploring the area.
