A whitewashed building overlooking Craighouse Bay, The Jura Hotel has a scenic location and a panoramic, ever-changing view toward the mainland. The hotel is situated directly in between the island’s distillery and the ocean, and provides a lively meeting place for guests and locals alike.
The 35 rooms are simply decorated and not spacious, but the hotel as a whole exudes a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the lounge and restaurant make the most of the views, and the lively character and large selection of whiskies and gins in the public bar make this a friendly place in which to relax.
The restaurant’s menu is creative and seasonal, with dishes changing daily due to the availability of locally-sourced ingredients. Rooms do not have TVs but there is a television lounge with a DVD library downstairs. Please note, due to the hotel’s remote location the Wi-Fi service is patchy.
