Used Skerrols as my base for a few whisky tours in early 2014. Clean place and quiet. Breakfast spread was impressive and filling. Thomas was a gracious host and extremely helpful, once allowing me to borrow a pair of Wellingtons to go hiking around the Mull of Oa. Skerrols House is remote from Bridgend but that's what you want in... More

He had us in stitches with his stories and the honking of the geese was just to much. You must ask him about the geese... lol The whole place was so inviting from the time you see it till you enter. The rooms were immaculate and the bedroom was very comfortable and relaxing. The en-suite was complete and lacking nothing.... More

The rooms were extremely comfortable & very well-appointed & spacious. Thomas was extremely helpful & friendly. We had caught a late ferry to Port Askaig & it was late by the... More

We were at Skerrols for two nights and I must say it was the best experience during our road trip around Scotland! We had a room with private bathroom. Rooms didn't have own toikets or bathrooms in them but they were located separately in the house. All was clean and really nice. The breakfast was amazing with all the berries,... More

We stayed at Skerrols House back at the end of June. We came to Islay to visit distilleries and watch wildlife. We spent four nghts at Skerrols House and wished we'd booked for longer; it was such a peaceful, welcoming place to stay. On Islay, we'd recommend the weekly RSPB guided walk at The Oa, the Bowmore Taste of Islay... More

Me and my boyfriend spent a weekend in Islay, to relax and enjoy the nature and also discover more about whiskeys. I work in hospitality and I was surprise to find really high quality service that you should expect from a high rated hotel in this small b&b. Thomas has been a great host, nice, polite and helpful. It felt... More

Excellent B&B on a beautiful island. Thomas was a superb host, very helpful and made us feel very welcome, even giving us a couple of the local beers! The room was of a very high standard as was the delicious breakfast. It would have been nice to have been closer to Bridgend but we were only there for the one... More

Nice place, quiet and clean, with a fantastic breakfast made of local products. Extremely good sausages, with a fresh hint of herbs, and some wonderful scrambled eggs. I am a scrambled egg fanatic, and I can assure: those came straight down from Heaven! Kind and friendly people, beautiful landscape.

Congratulations to Thomas and his wife. Very charming place; extremely well located at the barycenter of all activities on beautiful Islay. From the very first welcome to friendly farewell, Skerrols is a pure delight. Breakfasts are corresponding to the overall quality of this place. We recommend Skerrols House ! Anne and Bruno

Very good hotel, attentive, friendly host. Good quality facilities except for the hook on the bathroom door which was hanging by one screw when we arived. I mentioned this to Thomas in the morning and was met with some disbelief but was assured this would be fixed immediately. It was still broken when we left after our two nights stay.... More
