“Scotland at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

When I dream about the perfec scottish guest house, I would dream about Kilmeney. Situated half a mile away from the road in the hills (with a nice view), Kilmeney is an outstanding retreat. The rooms are excellent equipped and spacious. The breakfast offers a wide range of fruits, cereals, toasts and not to forget the cooked breakfast parts! Margaret and Blair look very much after you and are very helpful with recommendations of every kind (and do even the bookings for you!).

A warm welcome awaits here. Lovely comfortable and luxurious room. Superb home cooking with a choice of just about everything you could ask for at breakfast. Pleasant gardens to sit and relax in. The property is kept in tip top condition both inside and out. Will stay again next time I wester home!

Room Tip: From what the other reviews say, all the rooms must be of the same high standard.

The rooms are perfectly decorated with a lot of attention to detail! Margaret is a lovely host and the breakfasts are 1st class! Even the dogs are welcoming! The rooms are clean and are stunning, best b&b I have ever stayed in!

Staying at Kilmeny Country House is a truly memorable experience which makes people return again and again. This was our 3rd visit staying in the magnificent "pink room" with the lovely view from the bay window where you can enjoy a wee dram from the decanter in your room.
Blair and Margaret are such a lovely warm, friendly and generous couple who just make your stay perfect. Attention to detail is evident everywhere .
The warm welcome you will receive on arrival is followed by afternoon tea in the cosy lounge letting you sample Margaret's delicious home baking. In the morning you have an amazing choice for breakfast. Your cooked breakfast is individually prepared and there is always a " wee daily surprise" eg. Marmalade muffin.

This is just a perfect place to stay to enjoy this beautiful island. I can guarantee you will leave feeling pampered and relaxed and the people to thank are Margaret and Blair.
Thank you once again Allan & Sheila

I can't add anything to the wonderful and glowing reviews that have been left here with regard to the 4 night stay we have just had at Kilmeny Country House. What a fantastic warm Islay welcome given to myself and family during our stay, we truly didn't want to leave. Thank you so much Margaret and Blair for your 5 star hospitality!

Situated in the centre of Islay this is a working farm with 5* Bed & Breakfast accommodation. Yes, it's officially rated 5* by the Scottish tourist authority and well-desereved it is too.
Amazingly comfortable in bedrooms. lounge and dining room there can be none better on Islay.
The hospitality is second to none, anywhere.

Room Tip: There are only 4 or 5 rooms, all that I saw are perfect.

Carole and I stayed for three nights with Margaret and Blair at Kilmeny Country House this June 2013 and would honestly say that this is the best guesthouse we have ever visited!
Margaret has a wonderful way with her guests; nothing is too much trouble and great thought has been put into every detail to even include such things as a pair of binoculars and a thermos flask for those day trips!
Margaret's super cooked breakfasts are spectacular and you leave the breakfast table well fed! On the breakfast table there was delicious homemade cakes, jams and oatcakes.
After our stay we just did not want to leave as it was such a warm and welcoming experience meeting Margaret and Blair who deserve all their accolades.
We hope it won't be too long before we return to beautiful Islay and of course to Kilmeny.
Thank you so much Margaret, Blair, Peter and Blanca (I hope that is spelt correctly).
Looking forward to seeing you all again.
George and Carole.
