I cannot say enough wonderful things about Emma and Grame and their lovely Glenegedale B&B! This was our first visit to Islay and after our great experience I hope not our last. From the moment we arrived Emma treated us like old lost friends. Our room was fabulous, the bathroom spacious and squeaky clean! The breakfasts served were absolutely superb... More

Very friendly and helpful landlord and lady. The bedroom was beautiful and every thing really clean and tidy. Excellent bed, slept like a baby. The relaxing area was cosy and nice and the breakfast was fantastic! We'll be back next time we're on Islay.

Couldn't have asked for a more welcoming couple. On arrival we were greeted with high tea, an abundance of local knowledge and help to ensure we found the best the island had to offer. The interior of the house is as warm, immaculately and tastefully kept as we could have wished for. The breakfast is fit for kings and queens.... More

Enjoyed an excellent one night stay, wish it could have been longer. Lots of good advice, even before we arrived. Freshly baked afternoon tea, clean and well appointed rooms and comfortable "residents" lounge, with library of books on Islay. Professionally run but warm and friendly. Breakfast choices were the best we had. Hope to return. Many thanks.

Stayed here on business on 20th July. I travel about 5 or 6 times per year with my work and this is by far the best place I've stayed to date. Graeme and Emma really go out their way to ensure you have an excellent stay. I was made very welcome on arrival and was offered tea/coffee and some baking.... More

We arrived early ... and were greeted with the warmest welcome followed by a beautifully laid out tea service (even though we'd missed Afternoon Tea). With flatlands all around it, this B&B may at first appear to be a tad isolated and austere. It is not! Open the doors and come into a B&B that is handsomely appointed and immaculately... More

Lisa and Justin. WOW WOW WOW.....I can honestly say I have a wee tear in my eye reading this and it makes every early morning and every little bit of extra work absolutely worth while to think that you enjoyed yourselves and felt this way about your time on Islay and with us here at Glenegedale House.

The reception could not have been warmer. The rooms were good, the breakfast sensational (Emma knows how to bake). We were lucky with the weather, but even if it rains Emma and Graeme will have ideas on where to go and what to do.

David - Thank you so much for a great review. We so enjoyed having you stay again for a second time in out time at Glenegedale House. It was also lovely to meet more of your friends that you brought to showcase our gorgeous island. I was delighted that we still managed to find little pockets of Islay that you... More

Ideally situated B&B on Islay with very friendly and helpful hosts. Lots of info about the island, especially good recommendations on where to eat. Great breakfast! We really did not need lunch that day. We also very much liked the house and our well appointed room. Hope to visit again sometime!

My husband and I spent two absolutely wonderful nights at the Glenegedale Guest House in April of this year. Emma and Graeme are fantastic hosts - attentive, kind, genuine, considerate, knowledgeable, and personable. Emma knows absolutely everything about the island and had great suggestions for restaurants and booking reservations. She was exceptionally helpful in booking us into some distillery tours... More
