Lambeth Guest House
Ranked #3 of 13 Bowmore B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I stayed here for two nights as a central base for cycling on Islay. The room was very comfortable, spotless and well-equipped. The communal breakfast table, where all the guests were introduced to each other, was a great place for meeting people from all over the world, who I kept on bumping into elsewhere during my visit to the island. Best of all were mine hosts who were very welcoming and a fount of knowledge on all things Islay.

I was there for 5 nights during the feis isle 2012. Bowmore is a good location to get everything you need.
Very nice B&B with modern rooms and well equiped. Margaret and John did a good Job to feel well staying there. They are both very helpfull and it was a pleasure to meet them. I will be back!

Coming up on my third stay at Lambeth Guest House, I have told my wife that she is in for a treat ( this will be my wife's first visit to Lambeth ). Margaret ensures that your stay will be remembered always on a positive note. Her service and rooms are impeccable. If you read this and are thinking about a place to stay in Bowmore, then this is it. The secret is out!! This is the only place to stay on Islay.

By second visit to Islay as well at the Lambeth Guest House. Found staying with Margaret and John as a home away from home. The rooms with the modern bathroom could easily compete with any good hotel chain. The recently added cable television also had a few Indian Channels. Amazing Hospitality from very warm and friendly hosts. I am a big fan and no prizes for guessing, when I make my third annual trip - I would stay again at the Lambeth Guest House.

Wishing John and Margaret - all the success they rightfully deserve for running such a splendid establishment . Warm regards Anand

We were a party of 4 mature adults making a first visit to Islay with no clear expectations of what our weekend would bring. After sampling the unexpected, clear, crisp sunshine (and a downpour or two!) we were absolutely bowled over by the warm welcome and excellent experience that comes from staying with Margaret & John at Lambeth B&B. It's a real treasure on a beautiful island which has many sights and experiences to tempt and thrill travellers of all ages and activity levels. The B&B is well situated for walking, shopping, eating and transport. Lambeth has fabulous rooms of very high standard - really comfy beds; amazing en suite facilities; tasteful decor and generously proportioned rooms. All of this is topped off by fantastic breakfasts freshly prepared to order in a very comfortable dining room. Once you've been, you'll want to go back! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 & 7 are of a great size but if you don't like upstairs, then ground floor rooms are...

During the Islay segment of our trip to Scotland, we had the pleasure of staying at Lambeth House in Bowmore. Margaret (and John) were fabulous hosts, attentive to our needs, very informative and over and above helpful. The room was impeccably clean and the ensuite bathroom/shower was even cleaner!! Excellent upgrades to plumbing made this B&B better than any hotel we stayed in on this tour. Comfortable and cozy beds. Hairdryer, tv and other ammenities in the room and wifi downstairs in the common area. Margaret's breakfasts were plentiful and very tasty. Located very centrally in Bowmore, and Bowmore a perfect base to explore Islay. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The Bowmore Hotel across the street and can be a little loud in the evenings. If this a concern, req...
