We couldn't have found a better place to stay on Islay. Andrew and Allison are friendly hosts and the breakfasts and dram were great as well. The location is central and Andrew was extremely helpful in arranging our tours and advising us as to what we might want to see. We will stay there again the next time that we... More

My son and I stopped in Islay on a "detour" on our trip to France and our 3rd 10 year anniversary trip to visit D-Day sites and pay our respects to the fallen. Staying with Allison and Andrew is more like staying with family than at a hotel. The view from our room was breathtaking, the beds were comfortable and... More

Last year we booked Bowmore House after I fell in love with the pictures and write up on their B and B. Andrew and Alison were super in sending out plenty of information on Islay and the distilleries. We arrived to an amazing welcome from Andrew and Alison, which set the tone for our next five days on Islay and... More

We stayed at the annex. Lovely place, just face to face with the water. Comfortable beds, nice lounge with kitchen facilities. We had breakfast at the main house, which was also good. Friendly atmosphere with a great location. What more do you need?

I have recently returned from a 5 nite stay in Islay which was to celebrate my Father´s 70th birthday. I booked at The Bowmore house over a year in advance after falling in love with the bay window of The Bowmore Suite on the internet pictures. Andrew was incredibly helpful (and patient!) throughout the months of planning the trip, and... More

We have just had a fantastic 3 night stay at The Bowmore House. Lovely view, comfy bed, wonderful breakfast. Andrew, Alison, Eliza and Lilly are the best hosts and with a wee dram to welcome you what could be better? Thankyou once again for a great time and look forward to visiting again.

Stayed at the Bowmore House during a weekend trip to Islay from the States. Andrew and Allison do an absolutely wonderful job. The level of service and hospitality we received was really excellent, and the accommodations are great. The inn itself is picturesque, nestled in lovely Bowmore. Also, the breakfast is really outstanding, with a great selection. Andrew is a... More

Andrew and Alison were the perfect hosts for our 3 night stay. They went out of their way to look after our group - greeting us with a wee dram to welcome us to Islay. The breakfast was amazing and set you up for a long day of whisky tasting. The view from the house is beautiful. Its a 5... More
