We enjoyed a perfectly magical stay at Skerrols House on our first trip to Islay. Thomas, the host, is amazing- friendly, informative, great attention to detail (when we got to our room there was an adaptor plug already installed to match our devices) and so helpful. He told us about the Ian Macdonald talk at Lagavullin, and immediately booked us... More

We stayed at Skerrols house two nights ago. I didn't know much about it when I booked it, but I'm very glad I did. The bedrooms are large, modern, and the beds are beyond comfortable. The manager Thomas is very welcoming and provided coffee and cookies in the living room area which we used. The breakfast was outstanding; don't miss... More

We visited Skerrols House for one night only - a fact we regretted immediately, due to the fact that this is the way a beautiful hotel should be. Thomas gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived. The rooms were bright, clean an had a very nice interior just as the rest of the house. The breakfast was very,... More

This is a very relaxing place to stay, with a warm welcome. We had a nice time chatting with other guests in the charming lounge, the bedroom is very nice and breakfast was exceptionally good. Skerrols is in the middle of farmland and, unlike most places on Islay, quite far from the sea. Very peaceful.

We go to Islay often because of the wonderful single malt distilleries. We stayed this time at Skerrols House. The location was perfect, the rooms were worthy of a 5 star hotel. They serve a breakfast and it was the best on the trip. The salmon, fruit, and homemade bread were wonderful. The Owner made you feel like one of... More

Rare Perfection Sometimes hotels are good, sometimes very good, but how often can one say “that was perfection”? To do so, visit Skerrols House Hotel (b&b) near Bridgend on the Scottish Isle of Islay. It is situated near the centre of the island but stands in solitary confidence on high ground far from any source of noise or discomfort, with... More

I Stayed at Skerrols House back in May with work, and really cannot fault a thing. The rooms & bathrooms are spacious, beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean. They have everything you would expect from a top end B&B, and have little finishing touches that make it feel like a (luxurious) home from home. Breakfast is served in a pleasant dining... More

The rooms were super luxurious The lounge / drawing room was equally stunning with water and soft drinks left available for guest to use. We checked in about 4 in the evening with the intention of driving out shortly... More

Thomas was the perfect host. The view from the house itself is so relaxing and beautiful. The room was perfectly appointed and homey. Thomas was very accommodating with his hospitality and wealth of knowledge about the island. I was very sad to leave and will definitely be back to stay at Skerrols House. It's a great central location to everything... More
