Even though we were late from the ferry taking us to Islay, Margaret was waiting at the door and came out to greet us. The room was a dream come true. Fresh milk in the mini-bar, a wee dram of Scotch, a TV over the clawed-footed bathtub, fresh cookies next to the tea server, I could go on and on....

We stayed (unfortunately) only one night, and I think this is the loveliest place I have ever stayed. It was just wonderful, in every sence of the word. And Margareth, our hostess and proprietor, was as lovely as her house, extremely helpful and friendly. And the breakfast was delicious!

Stayed with Margaret for one day (too short!) during my stay in Islay. Checked in early at 12pm was treated to fantastic tea and cakes complimentary of Margaret's warm hospitality before heading out for distillery tours. I highly recommend staying with Margaret. Her home is beautifully decorated with a lot of thought and sincerity put into each room. She even...

Everything a traveller might require is provided, your every need anticipated. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, and breakfast alone is worth the stay. It's obviously a source of pride for the owners to see their guests' expectations met at every level. This really pushes the boundaries of what a B&B can be. Well done, and many thanks!

Margaret's welcome is just lovely - and just right. The situation is peaceful. Breakfast was delicious, and as big as you can eat. And the sun...

My wife and I spent 4 days in Islay and decided to pick Kilmeny as our base after reading all the reviews here on TripAdvisor. Confirming our booking was a breeze over email, and Margaret was very helpful in spite of us having to reschedule a bit. From the second we pulled into the driveway, we knew this place was...

This guest house is the most beautiful country house I've ever stayed in. It is 100% luxury and absolutely stunning. Margaret the owner and her husband were so lovely and welcoming, gorgeous people. The breakfast was outstanding, you were even given a menu to choose and it had everything you could possibly eat for breakfast on it. I cannot fault...

Fantastic B&B with perfectly appointed rooms and a breakfast that could not be bettered anywhere! The hosts were SO nice, took great trouble, informative about the island, sense of humour, nothing too much trouble. Well sited on the island. We will most definitely be back!
