大変もてなし上手で気配り上手で料理上手の、趣味の良い、仲の良い友人のお家にいるかのような!I spent a couple of nights in May 2013. Her place and hospitality left me one of the best memories of my stay in Islay. Great costal view from the comfortable room with full of tasteful features with nicely arranged fresh flowers. Margaret hosted me with full of cares, she understands what might be helpful to me, and I was...

Just back from this very comfortable B and B. Room was clean, cosy, bed comfortable, good shower. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of it and a good choice. The owners are very friendly and when we couldn't get a taxi to the party we were going to they offered to take us and collect us, which they did. This was exceptionally...

I stayed five nights with Margaret and John at Lambeth House. I couldn't have picked a better spot to start my stay on Islay. Margaret is a friendly and helpful person, and an excellent cook. The B&B has modern appointments, a good bed, central location and has a well deserved good reputation. I greatly enjoyed meeting the other guests during...

Nice rooms, large bathroom, strangely excellent beds and a great breakfast at flexible times. The bedroom would have benefited from an extra foot of space at end of bed but you know you're in a good place where that's the only gripe. TV has a bright, blue light in standby which is why you may find previous guests have powered...

Margaret and John were the perfect hosts, they were very hospitable, friendly and very knowledgeable of the island. Breakfast was first class, cooked and served by Margaret. The Guest house itself is very comfortable, modern decor, room 6 was spacious, with bright en-suite, new comfortable beds, all spotlessly clean!! Large HD tv and IPOD speaker dock in the room.
