“Ideal Nia Roo”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A group of 4 guys just returning from a week on the beautiful island of Islay. Nia Roo really was the perfect home for our week. We couldn't find fault at all. Highly recommend as a place to stay whilst touring the island. Fixed in a perfect location in Bowmore, it was the ideal base for our travels. A really well equipped and clean cottage that can comfortably sleep 4. Complimentary whiskey and shortbread was a really nice touch. Would love to return sometime in the near future.

My partner and I stayed here for one week in June it was both our first trip to Islay and we could not have asked for a better location to stay this cottage was in a great location and had everything needed it was very cosy and the bed extremely comfortable. Jean was very helpful and the Whisky supplied is a very nice touch, we would have no hesitation recommending this cottage and would book with Jean again next time we were coming back to beautiful Islay. Whisky is great on the Island and I enjoyed my visit to all 9 distilleries.

“Nice cottage perfectly located next to Bowmore destillery”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Situated next to Bowmore Destillery Nia Roo was perfect as the base for our Islay destillery tour. From the sittning Rom we had a perfect view right into the malting flor at Bowmore just Aros the street. At our arrival we found a decanter of whisky to welcome us. The cottage came with all the amenities that could be expected and more. The owner, Jean, answered any questions that we had in just a few hours. We would love to visit Bowmore and Nia Roo again.
Thanks Jean.
