Felt right at home here! Gracious owners, thoughtful attention to detail, comfortable room, charming and beautiful space, incredible breakfast. Well situated in the middle of the island. Gave us wonderful suggestions for what to do with our day, set us up with a basket of tea and muffins too! Introduced us to other travelers over a wee dram one night.... More

We stayed three nights (eight persons) in this lovely guest house where everything was just perfect. Rooms were clean, tidy and quiet - some of them with sea view. Breakfast was tasty and many-sided. And the perfect hosts - there is only positive words in this place.

Definitely not your average b&b! Everything about this b&b was exceptional. I was working on Islay and was fortunate enough to be booked into this lovely guest house. The room was beautiful, comfortable and very welcome after a long day. The breakfast was extra special and I was very grateful for the muffins and fruitbread doggie bag to enjoy later.... More

We've stayed at Glenegedale previously (4 years ago) and I have to say that it has continued to provide smart, comfortable and (very) clean accommodation with great views over the bay (if you're at the front). Emma and Graeme couldn't have been more helpful, assisting us in sorting out taxis and providing lots of information before our trip to help... More

Emma and Graeme were extremely kind and welcoming hosts while we stayed in their gorgeous B&B. We were warmly greeted with tea/coffee and a freshly baked whisky cake upon arrival. The room was beautiful and clean, the breakfast was just delicious, and in the evening they lit a fire for us in the living room for a cozy night in.... More

Even before arriving we knew this was going to be a wonderful stay, just from the correspondence we had with our hosts, Emma & Graeme. The property is a beautifully restored home which used to be a dairy. Every room was elegantly appointed with antiques, fresh flowers, quality linens & a real sense of style. There were very generous areas... More

We came for a week and only stayed 1 night at glenegedale at the end but we wished we'd been here for the whole trip. The breakfast was out of this world with homemade muffins straight from the oven, creamy porridge, spiced fruits and of course the traditional scottish fry up. Emma & Graeme were fantastic hosts who made us... More

This was our first visit to Islay, but we felt at home as soon as we arrived at Glenegedale, sitting in the drawing room with coffee and fantastic cake.

Glenegedale Guest House is an excellent place to stay and you'll be truly missing out if you don't stay here when visiting Islay. Why is it so nice? Firstly Glenegedale is beautifully presented to an excellent standard from the decoration and furniture to the lovely family heirlooms tastefully dotted about the house. I felt such a moment of bliss when... More
