Having been a tourist in many locations, this was a different and highly welcome experience. Many of the hotels/campings/etc I have been, render an environment that is quite different from the actual homes of that country, which may render one feeling quite disconnected from the current environment. This was a very different experience for me. Not only did the home away from home, actually feel like a home. The hosts, Margaret and Harold were very friendly and helpful, not only with accommodation elements, but also with finding our way at Islay. With respect to the accommodation: this is a very nice substantial house with magnificent view over the city of Port Ellen and most notably, the sea. The house is extremely tidy and clean, and the breakfast was excellent. Our stay at The Grange Guesthouse certainly added significantly to the positive experience of this authentic Island! I highly recommend this accommodation to any travellers to Islay.…
Was met by the hostess, got a nice info about the premises and plan for breakfast. We enjoyed the stay, the atmosphere and brilliant breakfast. Can highly reccomend the site for other visitors. Full score from us.
Lovely guest house..very clean . Breakfast is brilliant and Margaret is such a lovely lady... Would highly recommend anyone staying on island... Rooms beautiful Central location.. Lovely views brilliant guest house
We stayed with 3 couples fr 5 nights! Margaret & Harold serve a delicious full scottish as well as eggs/salmon and porridge or fresh fruits. They are a very pleasant couple, easygoing and will help out with any problem you may encounter! Our stay was simply grrreat! Our next visit to Islay will be in The Grange.
Very comfortable accommodations with a great view of Harbor. Marge and Harold are wonderful hosts. We got great advice on places to visit and eat. Marge is a great cook! Recommend a car rental although we had one gorgeous day of walking to various distilleries. We travel a lot and this has been one of our favorite trips!
