Food was great, the pork belly in particular. If you like the best Spa, cycling, kayaking, walking, climbing and generally chilling out, this is the place. Go to Tarbert via the ferry right by the Marina, it takes about 20 mins and opens up the possibility to take another ferry from just outside Tarbert to Islay.
“The location is great : it's quite isolated but the road leading to the hotel is very nice with great views along the way. The views and landscape around the hotel are great. The appartment we rented was very large, very confortable. And the facilities are exceptionnal: it was so nice to enjoy the infinity pool and outside jacuzzi while it was snowing on us... We had a peaceful and relaxing moment at Portavadie !! Food was also quite good !”
“We had high expectations of the property and on seeing it were satisfied if not overwhelmed by the size of the room. The marina and other facilities were excellent. There was good lighting from the lodge to the marina. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was average and probably verging on poor if the cost is taken into consideration. ”
