My boyfriend and I stayed at Lambeth Guest House this past weekend for a tour of Islay distilleries, and we felt completely at home. Margaret and John were the nicest hosts we've ever had. We had a wonderful breakfast everyday with fresh eggs, salmon, and lots of other yummy food. Our room was cleaned everyday and the bathroom and shower... More

There is much to recommend Lambeth House. Margaret is warm and friendly and cooks a great breakfast. The rooms are well appointed with comfy beds and powerful showers. The only problem is internal noise; we were in Room 4 and it was easy to hear (and hard to ignore) talk and TV noise from the next room, as well as... More

The success of our visit to Islay owes a lot to Margaret and John and their beautiful Lambeth Guest House. It wasn't just the amazing breakfasts or the dreamy beds; it was the ride to the distillery when we couldn't get a taxi, or the local advice on buses or places to eat. Accommodating, generous, homely. If you're looking for... More

I stayed here on business at the start if the month and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I was in room number 4 with twin beds and a view onto Jamieson Street. The room was modern, clean and warm with a big bathroom and it was very quiet at night. Breakfast the next day was tasty and there was a... More

Stayed in room no.3 for 3 nights. Islay is a great place to visit, and Margaret made my visit more memorable. The room was very comfortable, with a rather big bathroom. The breakfast was amazingly good, probably the best full Scottish breakfast you could get. Breakfast time was also a good time to meet other guests from different parts of... More

We, me and my friend have been in Lambeth house second time. This time during the Whisky festival. We booked room in September 2013 to be sure that we will have place in May 2015 but the occasion was very special as well - 200 years Ardbeg. We can say many things about the festival but the only one about Lambeth... More

A big thank you goes to the owners Margaret & John for looking after us 6 whisky lovers during the 2015 Feis Ile. Great looking rooms and tasty breakfasts kept us going for 7 days and nights. Try it out you will not be disapointed.

Have just returned from three nights at the Lambeth House, John and Margaret are fantastic hosts. Nothing was to much trouble, their help and hospitality went beyond the expected. Breakfast was made with good ingredients freshly cooked and plentiful. Rooms were clean warm (very warm), and well equipped. The shower was powerful and hot, probably the best shower I have... More

Stayed here overnight 18/04/15. The other comments sum up this fantastic B&B. It is better than a hotel. The service is better than first class. The rooms are spotless, the shower fantastic. Breakfast was excellent. If you are intending visiting Islay this is the place to stay.
