Without doubt, this is the best guest house we've ever stayed in. Exceptionally well-appointed throughout, comfortable beds and an outstanding breakfast. Many thanks to Margaret for setting the standard! We've been to Islay many times and stayed in various holiday rentals, but this was our first short stay (due to family funeral) and would recommend Lambeth Guest House without hesitation.... More

大変もてなし上手で気配り上手で料理上手の、趣味の良い、仲の良い友人のお家にいるかのような!I spent a couple of nights in May 2013. Her place and hospitality left me one of the best memories of my stay in Islay. Great costal view from the comfortable room with full of tasteful features with nicely arranged fresh flowers. Margaret hosted me with full of cares, she understands what might be helpful to me, and I was... More

A number of years has passed since we stayed with Margaret and John, they have not changed one bit, however the accommodation is magnificent, having recently been completely refurbished. Both Margaret and John are great hosts and both go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be, the breakfasts are just what you would expect... More

Just back from this very comfortable B and B. Room was clean, cosy, bed comfortable, good shower. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of it and a good choice. The owners are very friendly and when we couldn't get a taxi to the party we were going to they offered to take us and collect us, which they did. This was exceptionally... More

I stayed five nights with Margaret and John at Lambeth House. I couldn't have picked a better spot to start my stay on Islay. Margaret is a friendly and helpful person, and an excellent cook. The B&B has modern appointments, a good bed, central location and has a well deserved good reputation. I greatly enjoyed meeting the other guests during... More

Nice rooms, large bathroom, strangely excellent beds and a great breakfast at flexible times. The bedroom would have benefited from an extra foot of space at end of bed but you know you're in a good place where that's the only gripe. TV has a bright, blue light in standby which is why you may find previous guests have powered... More

Stayed in the Lambeth guest house a few months ago as I was working on the island. Margaret was the perfect host and her scrambled eggs with smoked salmon were possibly the best breakfast iv ever eaten! My room was beautiful,bed was comfortable,tv was great and the shower was brilliant! Hopefully il get the chance to stay on the island... More
