“Great people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

We stayed for only one night at this homely hotel, so that we could walk up the Paps of Jura. There isn't much anywhere else to stay on Jura , and as far as I know nowhere else to get an evening meal. The staff at the hotel are really welcoming and the whole place had a warm and friendly atmosphere, which may have owed something to the fact that the Music festival had just finished. The rooms we were in were fairly traditional and could perhaps have benefited from an upgrade - as the excellent en-suite had already had, but you can trade a bit of upgrade for a fantastic view which is what our rooms had. The dinner was really good, but I was a bit disappointed that there were no venison steaks on the menu, just a sort of casserole. Very nice, but not what I was pining for after a day's walking, spent largely avoiding the stalkers. If they are blazing away most of the time, where does the venison go?

Our stay on Jura was made special by staying at this lovely hotel. Very convenient for the distillery as well. Had a sea view over the Sound of Jura. Would love to visit Jura again and we will definitely stay at this hotel.

I lived on the Isle of Jura for 2 years. The Jura Hotel is situated in the middle of Craighouse, which is the only village on the island. The hotel overlooks the Sound of Jura and the secenery is amazing. The hotel itself is.clean and tidy.The rooms are a good size and comfortable. Hotel staff are cheerful and will help wherever they can. I have eaten in the hotel and the meals are very good. The local people are also very friendly, but, the cleggs and midgies aren't. Take plenty of insect repellent with you (lemon scented coz they don't like lemon). So don't say you haven't been warned. Please don't let that put you off, Jura is a beautiful island. The deer roaming the island outnumber people many times over and it is fantastic for hillwalking if that's what you like doing.The PAPS of Jura are beautiful and every year they have the the Fells race where people come from all over the world to take part. That is an amazing weekend, especially if you enjoy the outdoor life. The island is very quiet for the best part of the year but the summer sees an influx of visitors and most of whom enjoy outdoor activities. They also host The Jura music festival every year where again musicians come from all over the world to take part. The Jura distillery, like the hotel is situated in the middle of Craighouse. Also across the road from the distillery is the only shop on the island which doubles as a Post Office. And next to that is the communal hall, which is used for activities for the local children during the year but it also is used for regular Caleidh's which are held for locals and visitors throughout the year. These are not to be missed. To get to Jura you have to travel by ferry from Kennacraig to either Port Ellen or Port Askaig. A lot depends on the time of your crossing to which port you go into. Port Askaig is the closest to Jura. Then you have to get the small ferry called Eilean Dhuira (Isle of Jura) over the sound and onto the island. If you are not a driver there is a local bus that will pick you up at the ferry in Jura and take you to the hotel. The island,the hotel and the scenery are well worth the journey. I have been back now for a few years but all of my memories are good.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea-view definitely worthwhile.

There is very little choice on Jura, so we went there for an evening meal.
We simply cannot fault the place, good choice of pub food, also local fish, service very friendly, good cooking and reasonably priced, what else do you need if you hungry ?
Certainly would go there again.
Parking space is tight in Craighouse, but the community hall parking lot is just a short walk away.
We did not sleep at the hotel, so cannot comment on this.

Stayed here for a night 22 August. Wished I could have stayed longer. We were blessed with a beautiful day to explore and also did an island tour with Alex. I enjoyed it all so much! The food was excellent and not expensive. The room was perfect - sea view and very comfy. Breakfast was out of this world. I loved the whole stay and can't wait to go back.

The hotel was very friendly and I chatted to many people. Jura seems to be one of those places where people really enjoy each other's company.

On the wettest of wet Jura days, and believe me that can be very wet, we paused and considered at the Jura Hotel. The service was of the best island hospitality. Nothing was at all a trouble. The venison burger was historic, even without the"bun" (on an island bread is not necessarily available). Fish was fresh and the charges most reasonable. Very much looking forward to a return visit.

Friendly staff, great accomodation and excellent food. The hotel has a fantastic view and you can view the sun rise in the morning. What makes the hotel an enjoyable stay, is the friendly staff and warm welcome.
