“Scotich hospitality”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

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 amazed that her care was yet very efficient, nothing too much. I remember the tulips in my room, and the curtains with beautiful spiral shells at the coastal view windows. I loved every item of her Scottish breakfast, too. High quality in the service, every item of the place, and the food, tea, sweets. The living room with a working fire place. I personally also liked talking to her as well, feeling something familiar to myself, wishing she was a neighbor to make friends with.

Stayed May 2013, travelled solo

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 - GREAT. What else can i say, if you want a place to stay in Bowmore you will be struggling to beat staying with Margaret and John.

We stayed with Margaret and John in the first week of October and were very pleased with their kindness and sense of service.
The rooms were large and cozy furnished, and even had nice bathrooms.
Margaret always served a freshly cooked full Scottish breakfast after inviduellt wishes.
We are happy to recommend this B & B and thank you so much for our stay there.
Peter, Fidde and Jorgen :-)

Just back from this very comfortable B and B. Room was clean, cosy, bed comfortable, good shower. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of it and a good choice. The owners are very friendly and when we couldn't get a taxi to the party we were going to they offered to take us and collect us, which they did. This was exceptionally kind of them.

I stayed five nights with Margaret and John at Lambeth House. I couldn't have picked a better spot to start my stay on Islay. Margaret is a friendly and helpful person, and an excellent cook. The B&B has modern appointments, a good bed, central location and has a well deserved good reputation. I greatly enjoyed meeting the other guests during breakfast. I second the recommendation on the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.

Nice rooms, large bathroom, strangely excellent beds and a great breakfast at flexible times. The bedroom would have benefited from an extra foot of space at end of bed but you know you're in a good place where that's the only gripe. TV has a bright, blue light in standby which is why you may find previous guests have powered it off.

Bowmore is a good location for exploring Islay and its distilleries. The extremely infrequent buses all pass by at the bus stop 60 seconds walk from the door next to Co-op supermarket (open til 10pm most days).
