Each of the 34 rooms is simply decorated in a traditional manner, with tartan-style carpets, curtains or bed throws. Premium rooms have additional space for seating, and their bathrooms have a bath as well as a shower. Most Premium rooms also have a view of the sea. Bedrooms do not have a television, although there is a TV room on the ground floor. Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel but can be patchy.
The Jura Hotel is located opposite the Jura Distillery in Craighouse, the island’s largest settlement. The village is on the southeast of Jura and is accessed by the island’s only road. The hotel is backed by mountains and overlooks the bay, facing toward the mainland. Around 100 m from the hotel is a small community-run shop and post office.
Food and drink
Dining at The Jura Hotel is a real treat, as the chef uses ingredients sourced from the surrounding mountains and ocean such as wild Jura venison, fresh langoustine, Islay crab and Ardfin pheasant. Tables for guests are reserved in the dining room, but more casual fare is also on offer in the lounge bar and pub, which is also open to non-residents.
