We were made so welcome and the rooms were the best B&B we've stayed in. The breakfast was so much better than many 5 star hotels I've stayed in. The rooms and beds were spotless and so comfortable. Parking is too convenient for words which brings me to those of a famous song. "You can check out any time you... More

Booking well in advance I expected to have to pay a deposit, but was assured I didn't. 4 of us (2 couples) arrived to a very warm welcome and for the 3 nights we spent there nothing was any trouble to Margaret and John who run this guest house. The rooms were spacious and clean with fresh towels every day.... More

You'd be hard pushed to find better accommodation that's more conveniently located and as well appointed. Owners Margaret and John could not have been more welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable and the breakfast superb. Thanks for making our visit to Islay such a success.

"Another lovely day in Bowmore", exclaims Margaret MacNeill as she brings us an excellent breakfast with coffee in a French press. That the sky is grey and strong wind is chasing raindrops is not important - Margaret brings warmth and sunshine with her every time. Her morning apron is an ad for the island's 8 whisky distilleries. Lambeth House is... More

We stayed four nights but could have easily spent weeks at Lambeth Guest House. The location is perfect for anyone wanting to see whole of Islay as we did. The place really is more of a micro hotel with top notch service and overall quality. As Bowmore is a small(ish) village, finding a place for our car was bit of... More

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
