In brief: Margaret, the hostess, was wonderfully welcoming, cheery, and delightful. She gave us free champagne. The room small but comfortable. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was neat and modern. If you like whisky or hiking, Islay is a paradise. There is nothing else to do there. The Lambeth House was one of the highlights of our whole trip... More

I can fully recommend this B&B. Rooms are comfortable, modern and spacious bathroom attached. Rooms have new TVs, comfy beds, we didn't miss a thing. Service is outstanding, room was nicely tidied, bathroom cleaned when we came home. The family who runs the B&B gave us a warm and friendly welcome. Every morning we were being served a full breakfast... More

I am writing this and I am finding it difficult not to exaggerate. I have stayed in this guest house before and I am pleased to say that the homely atmosphere I found on my first visit is still very much in evidence. The rooms are very well appointed with all the usual facilities and en-suite. The Breakfasts have a... More

Just spent 4 nights at this wonderful guest house. Comfortable rooms with beautiful modern decor and spotless thanks to Christine. Great breakfasts. Margaret and John great hosts who helped with my ancestry research. Anyone looking for ancestors just give them a name, they know everyone, or someone else who does. On top of this, their son played the bagpipes for... More

Centrally located on the island and in Bowmore. Very quiet and comfortable room. Clean and nice bathroom. Margreth and John are welcoming hosts. Breakfast is plentiful. If you are 6 foot 4 inches, however, the bed is a wee short.

We stayed there in 2011 during our 2 weeks visit on Islay. Great hospitality (John picked us up from the airport and gave us a lift back, when we were travelling back home - we didn't even have to ask!!), great food. Margaret is an exceptional cook, we were never hungry. And, although almost 3 years have passed, I still... More

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
