“Really Great hotel shame about room 6”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

Stayed with family overnight on the way to Tiree. The hotel location is great as were the staff and both the breakfast Setting staff & all meals really great. Only issue was with room 6 directly above bar & smoking area. We stayed a busy Saturday night so noise from good natured crowd in bar below was unfortunately an issue until 00:30hrs. In fairness owners are aware of the problem and working hard to solve the matter. Also only likely to be issue for room 6 and only when bar busy.

You may wonder why I have written this review - its because I believe trip advisor only works if people write honest reviews both good and bad.

I stayed here in a single room for two nights in July while younger members of the family stayed in the excellent new Island Bunkhouse nearby. The Hotel is very welcoming, the food is excellent. We had lovely weather and sitting out in the hotel garden with drinks was very pleasant. The family had dinner both nights eating the local seafood and it was delicious and very good value. Bikes are free and I loved whizzing about the Island. Coll itself is a lovely island full of welcoming people with lots going on and very pretty - the machair was in full bloom and the best I have seen in the Hebrides.

We ahve been visiting the island for 12 years now and without a shadow of a doubt The Coll hotel is the best in the islands.Kevin and Julie are amazing hosts in all senses of the word. The hotel is very much run as if it is an extension of their lives and not as a business, so be prepared for friendly conversations, amazing hospitality and food that is unrivaled.

Do not expect a city centre style approach to customer service, here you are a person with a name, not a room number.

Do not think the food will be the run of the mill , over sauced (just to add flavour) , fiddly , fancy small portions... here it is all about the raw produced, cooked very well, served as it should be.

This is the only hotel and the only bar on the island... remember, you are a guest to the island and therefore embrace it and enjoy the island banter. If you are expecting a sterile hotel chain style service with souless interiors .. dont come ..simples!!

I have read through a lot of reviews here and stagger to understand some of the comments... sheep poo on the grass... it is an island filled with sheep what do you expect??

Keep up the amazing work ... We love you. We love the island and we love your culture!

Room Tip: room 7 is perfect for kids as it can sleep 4. Room 6 has the best views as it is on the corner, but...

Visited Coll en rote to Barra with 11 friends in two yachts and whilst we didn't stay at the Coll Hotel we visited for a drink and evening meal in the restaurant. The Hotel is set in a wonderful location with views over the bay and the friendliness of the staff was quite outstanding. The food was superb from a wide ranging menu/specials board and sensibly priced.
Well worth a visit.

Spent two nights at the Coll Hotel recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a large room at the front of the hotel, with lovely views out over the harbour. The room was very clean and comfy with nice extras like home made shortbread and some sweeties. Breakfast was excellent, I couldn't see past the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs both mornings but the full cooked was good too by all accounts. We ate in the hotel on both evenings and the food was fabulous - really high quality cooking with plenty local seafood to choose from. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is laid back and relaxed. Sitting outside with a drink before dinner after a day of cycling (bikes provided for guests) was just perfect. I can't recommend it enough and look forward to my next visit.

Coll is for those who like to chill, walk, talk, watch birds and enjoy the scenery. Coll Hotel has good food, nice rooms with sea views, and gardens to drink and chat in. Very cheerful staff. We took the car, but bikes are readily available, provided free by the hotel. For children, this was/is Katie Morag's island, home of the writer and artist Mairi Hedderwick. Four nights was just about right. The strange ferry times make the initial task of timing the holiday difficult. We did Coll then Tiree - doing it again I would do Tiree first then Coll.

Room Tip: Our room was over the bar, a nice room but probably the noisiest. The bar is also the island pub.
