Valuation Rolls

In 1905 my great grandfather was living on Shore Street in Bowmore, Islay. On the Valuation Roll for 1905 he is listed consecutively after the Temperance Hotel.
Is it a reasonable hypothesis to suggest that he was living next door to the hotel? Would that same hypothesis apply if he were to live further from the hotel, say 8 or 10 units away?
Does anyone know anything about the history of the Temperance Hotel?
Thanks for any help you are able to provide.
