My husband and I spent three nights at Allandale over last weekend. The house is a short walk outside Bowmore with breathtaking views across Loch Indaal to the front and the Paps of Jura to the side. We stayed in the double room, which is much larger than the photographs suggest, with plenty of storage space behind sliding wardrobe doors and a beautiful en-suite bathroom.

We were warmly greeted by Fiona, who I can only describe as like your Mum on steroids! She is a fantastic hostess who will spend as much time with you as you want, book you a table at one of the local restaurants and will provide you with the most expansive breakfast we have ever seen anywhere. From fresh fruit, cereals, fresh berries topped with greek yoghurt through to a huge cooked breakfast, Fiona will make sure you won't be wondering where your next meal will be coming from!

Everywhere is spotlessly clean and comfortable and this is a wonderful location to come to recharge your batteries, away from the hustle and bustle of city life but with fast wifi and freeview TV to keep you in touch with modern life if you want to do so.

Next time we're on Islay, we would have no hesitation to stay at Allandale again and highly recommend this property and the welcome you will receive from Fiona.

Spent 3 nights at Allandale on the beautiful island of Islay. Fiona and Alan could not do enough for you. House is in a stunning setting and the hospitality, rooms and breakfast were 5 star. Wouldn't stay anywhere else while visiting the island.

It is very quiet, with ever changing views out over the bay. In July thr sunsets and sunrises were wonderful. I is close enough to Bowmore to make eating easy. The situation made it ideal for us to cycle from there, and to go either south or north for attractions on the island

Room Tip: The double was large, with lots of storage space for a week's stay

We stayed two nights just a few days ago and just adored it. Fiona is such a wonderful hostess, very friendly and attentive. The home is lovely and we were in room 2 with just a wonderful view of the loche. Super comfortable and Fiona went out of her way to ensure we had a great stay.

Breakfast was super plentiful and full of little touches to make it special. Can't say enough good things about her and Allen.

For our 2 nights stay on Islay, we have selected again Allandale B&B.

Nice double room with a great view to direction of Bruichladdich. Bed was very comfortable and allowed a good & deep sleep. Everything was clean.
Fiona services a very good breakfast with a great choices.
Will select it again; a perfect place to stay. Thanks to Fiona & Allan
