What a warm welcome and a supremely comfortable place to stay. Wonderfully comfy beds, sleek en-suite and a breakfast to set you up for the day! Very convenient location straight accross the road from the Bowmore Hotel where we had an excellent eveing meal. Margaret made us feel really at home and I'd definately stay again!

A perfect place to stay when visiting Islay - the comfiest beds I have ever slept in . Breakfast is first class , lots of choice and everything cooked to perfection. The hosts are ever so friendly and go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable. Would recomend this Guest House .

While working on Islay for a week I was booked in to Lambeth Guest House and from the moment I arrived I felt at home. Nothing was any bother for my hosts and the room was very clean, comfortable and well set out. The location is central and quiet. I will definitely stay here again

My husband and I came for a 4 night stay during October for a friends wedding. We could have not asked for a better place to stay. Lambeth house literally makes you feel like you are right a home. Margaret and her husband are amazing people! They helped with anything they could. Breakfast was absolutely incredible. The rooms were always... More

We were made so welcome and the rooms were the best B&B we've stayed in. The breakfast was so much better than many 5 star hotels I've stayed in. The rooms and beds were spotless and so comfortable. Parking is too convenient for words which brings me to those of a famous song. "You can check out any time you... More

Booking well in advance I expected to have to pay a deposit, but was assured I didn't. 4 of us (2 couples) arrived to a very warm welcome and for the 3 nights we spent there nothing was any trouble to Margaret and John who run this guest house. The rooms were spacious and clean with fresh towels every day.... More

You'd be hard pushed to find better accommodation that's more conveniently located and as well appointed. Owners Margaret and John could not have been more welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable and the breakfast superb. Thanks for making our visit to Islay such a success.

"Another lovely day in Bowmore", exclaims Margaret MacNeill as she brings us an excellent breakfast with coffee in a French press. That the sky is grey and strong wind is chasing raindrops is not important - Margaret brings warmth and sunshine with her every time. Her morning apron is an ad for the island's 8 whisky distilleries. Lambeth House is... More

We stayed four nights but could have easily spent weeks at Lambeth Guest House. The location is perfect for anyone wanting to see whole of Islay as we did. The place really is more of a micro hotel with top notch service and overall quality. As Bowmore is a small(ish) village, finding a place for our car was bit of... More
