Stayed here for a week during August. Very pleasant property with all you need to enjoy a break on Islay. Great central location for travelling out to see the whole island.

“Great location great stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is the perfect location to explore the island a great comfy place to return to after a busy day. It's a home from home with everything you need. Great back garden (lovely suntrap) fully enclosed which was ideal for our dog - friendly neighbours on both sides - definitely use again.

We had a lovely week at Nia Roo in Bowmore. Perfect in every way. Able to walk to the shores of Loch Indaal and down to the hotels and restaurants of Bowmore. Ideal base for the beautiful Island of Islay.

“Absolutely stunning cottage, location,amenities top of the range.”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed her 14-18th March 16, absolutely stunning cottage,everything you need and more. The location is brilliant and dead centre of the whole island,great for exploring the island in any direction,if you don't want to travel to far , Bowmore Distillery is virtually on your doorstep,and all shops,pubs restaurants in Bowmore are within a couple minutes walk.we were fortunate enough to have a week of brilliant sunshine,visited so many stunning beaches,a few distilleries and cycled a fair bit as well. However I'm sure the island would be stunning in any weather. A must to see is Machir Beach,and the Military Cemetery close by the beach,Kildonan Cross/Church, and any of the distilleries,select this accommodation and your holiday will get off to a great start. And the wee dog loved it.

“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.
