Set in a beautiful and gentle part of the stunning landscape of Islay this B&B is a very pleasant experience. Done up to what would otherwise be 5-star contemporary luxury the guesthouse makes you feel welcome in a homely atmosphere where the personal service is in focus. I didn't know what to expect but was blown away. Really one of... More

We were bowled over: easy to find with good signage, excellent parking, beautiful house, warm welcome, so clean, beautiful room, warm lounge with open fire, boot room, and a pot of tea and real coffee on arrival. We loved out stay. But when you choose a hotel, you always choose a place to suit you. This suited us completely: amazing... More

Great location in the centre of the island, and Thomas is such a great person to know! A fountain of knowledge and he can hook you up at most places across Islay too. Room was great and the breakfast beats many hotels I've stayed at. Thanks for your hospitality.

We were very lucky to grab a room here at the last minute and so sadly had to leave after just 1 night due to ferry chaos otherwise we would have stayed so much longer. Skerrols is like being home! My Husband and I are both Scottish but now live abroad but when we entered Skerrols it really was like... More

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
