Beautifully kept house, with well-decorated, well-furnished and very comfortable public areas and bedroom and gorgeous bathroom and products. We only saw the male half of the owners but he was polite, helpful and welcoming, providing a great breakfast with excellent fresh fruit and lots of choice, both cold and cooked.

We had 5 star treatment from the moment we arrived at Skerrols House, Islay. We were met by Thomas (who is a star) with a warm welcome and a fresh pot of coffee and croissants (we had just missed breakfast). Throughout our stay Thomas seemed to appear just when we needed him, with offers of tea/coffee or a wee dram... More

This B&B is designed for relaxation- the rustic location is beautiful and the hosts extremely friendly. The accommodations were extremely comfortable, with a lot of attention to detail making sure whatever you want or need is available. Breakfast was amazing. Go for the full Scottish breakfast- it is well worth it and large enough that you can probably skip lunch... More

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
