Lovely room, lovely breakfast, good for solo traveller. Friendly. Not much more need to say but I need 200 characters. Easy to park, handy for town. Nice communal breakfast table. Give it a try, much better value than the bowmore hotel.

We stayed here for two nights in some awful Islay weather, and Margaret made us feel as welcome as if it was our own home. Fantastic options for breakfast if you ask for a few cheeky extras, and an amazing welcome every time we entered the door. Cozy bedrooms, great shower and bathroom.

we stayed with Margaret for three nights on a whisky visit. A lovely couple, Margaret the quiet one and John doing most of the talking (I jest Margaret !!). Nothing is to much trouble, they know everything and everyone on the island and given they have been doing this for nearly 30 years, their enthusiasm is still infectious. Top recommendation.

My husband and I spent 3 nights here end of September. Lambeth House is in Bowmore which is a very centrally located town in which to easily see all of Islay. It is in town so we walked to restaurants, etc.. Margaret & John were very helpful with local information. The bedroom and bathroom had every amenity and a lovely,... More

This was outrsecond time at the Lambeth Guest House in Bowmore. We stayed 4 nights and could have stayed easily 10 more nights. The bed are more comfortable that the beds at Ritz Hotel in London. The breakfast is plentiful and home made. The hospitality shown by Margaret and John is is warming. This is definitely a home away from... More

If you want a relaxed guest house on Islay, this is it. We went to Islay for a short break, and on recommendation chose to stay at Lambeth House. Cannot fault any part of the experience, and must mention Mrs Margaret MacNeill (owner) for her exceptional service and attention to detail. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed here while visiting on business, only which I found Margaret and John's place years ago. I was given a warm welcome by Maria, a guest of many years standing, who was in charge on a temporary basis as Margaret and John had been called away suddenly. The room and facilities were first class, a comfortable bed flat screen TV,... More
