Very friendly & warm welcome. Kentraw is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. Donald James & Isobel make you feel very welcome and are very attentive towards their guests. Nothing is too much trouble and they even called local restaurants to make table bookings for us. The breakfasts were delicious, as were the home bakes available for guests to enjoy with... More

Isabel and Donald are consummate hosts in their comfortable, relaxing and impeccably kept B&B. Located a short way up a farm drive from the main road close to Bruichladdich, affording glorious views across the water towards Bowmore in the distance, the hosts have their own 'wing' and the guests enjoy a recently renovated, smart and contemporary yet homely suite of...

The room was very comfortable as was the lounge with wood burning stove. Every morning we started with a hearty breakfast served in the open kitchen/dining room. Isabel and Donald were marvellous. They manage to create a sense of enjoyment and enthusiasm about Islay without being intrusive at all. We benefitted from their helpful advice on places to see and... More

We took two rooms for our family of four, and the accommodations were ideal. The beds were comfortable, linens luxurious, food scrumptious, location lovely, and fixtures of high quality. The common areas were comfortable and supplied with interesting books and guides. But best of all, Isabel and Donald are really kind, friendly, capable, and hardworking people, with a gift for...

This was a wonderful B&B in a great location on Islay. Lovely view, easily accessible. The hosts were gracious, generous, warm, and informative. Breakfast was outstanding. Yes, traditional Scottish breakfasts are excellent, but don't miss Isabel's omelette as an alternative choice! The rooms are well-appointed, newly refurbished, and very comfortable. Nice touches include freshly baked goodies for tea, and a... More
