Stayed two nights last week on our tandem island hopping adventure. Modern, spotlessly clean rooms, with superb breakfast all capped off with brilliant and very warm local hospitality. Margaret really is the percet host! Not the biggest of rooms, and no sea views, but nevertheless, we had a brilliant stay and will return.

Lambeth House is on Jamieson Street just off the main road in Bowmore, right in the village center. Margaret runs a very nice place, quiet, very neat and tidy. The breakfast is awesome and made specifically for you at the moment. It's a small guest house, not a lot of rooms but, what are there are very comfortable. Margaret is... More

We were on an Absolute Escapes Whisky Tour and experienced many guest houses etc. This was an absolute beauty which hosts Margaret and John going over and above to ensure your stay was comfortable. Breakfast was more than enough - with Margaret even going out for special black pudding for my husband. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Lambeth Guest House, and although it was a good comfortable and well-run place before, it is now even better as it has had a complete rejuvenation. The breakfast, as always, was generous and well-cooked and the family running the guest house are very friendly and helpful. Th great change is in the bedrooms... More

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

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
