We spent two beautiful nights early April and enjoyed every minute of it. Emma has always something interesting to say and will help you make the best of your stay. She is a very spontaneous but well organized person. She has lot of empathy and understand very quickly what you are looking for. The place is great and you just... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in April. We spent three nights and felt the most relaxed I have ever felt. The hosts, Graeme and Emma are amazing and inconspicuously spend their time making sure everything is perfect for everyone. This seemed to start before we even arrived with Emma offered to book and and organise our "Islay time".... More

We have just spent a long Easter weekend at Glenegedale and what a wonderful pleasant stay it has been. Anyone visiting Glenegedale and meeting Graeme and Emma will not be disappointed. The guest house decorated to a very high standard, immaculately clean and every attention to detail has been made, beautiful furnishings, bone china and beautiful crystal glasses are everywhere,...

For my second year in a row my stay on Islay with Emma and Graeme was absolutely flawless. The warmth and generosity is second to none and I cannot wait to visit Islay again next year and spend some more time at the Glenegedale...and if you’re nice enough, Emma may even share her vanilla poached plums recipe with you.

Brant, thank you for writing such a great trip advisor review for Graeme and I here at Glenegedale House. We loved having you back to stay again and here about life back in Minneapolis. A far cry from Islay life. These plums are a trade secret :-) ...so easy but have to be tried to understand how good they are.... More

I visited The Glenegadale House with a large group of people on business. Graeme and Emma are the most wonderful hosts. Their hospitality will make you feel at home and not want to leave. The breakfast they provide is the very best! Surely, a sign of the care they give while looking after their guests. I am recommending this house... More

Greatly enjoyed our stay at the Glenegedale. Tastefully decorated guest house. Very comfortable - you can enjoy a nice Islay whisky by the fireplace. Award-winning breakfast rightly so. Highly recommended.

Gareth and Emma are marvellous! I arrived at Glenegedale on a trip for work and felt welcome and comfortable for my entire stay. They made us feel like part of their beautiful home and we didn't want for anything. The breakfast was absolutely incredible with handmade cakes and porridge like I'd never before tasted! The proximity to the airport is... More

This is a fantastic Islay BnB, great hosts and hospitality, immaculate rooms and a breakfast worth returning...or maybe even never leaving their house for! I've stayed here a few times now and the return is always a welcome one. Islay itself is also stunning and well worth the visit.

Welcoming, organised and informative. From the delicious breakfasts to the lunch-time cakes, our hosts enabled a most enjoyable first ever visit to Islay. Our hosts offered and were happy to book Distillery visits, restuarants and travel as required. Could not have been better.
