I stayed here early April and it was marvellous. The Bowmore house was exceptional. We stayed in the cottage beside the main house. Very friendly, very clean and the views...well you'll have to come and see for yourselves.

What a fabulous B&B in Bowmore - we were not disappointed in any way. Andrew and Alison made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Great Scottish cooked breakfast every morning, with a wee dram if you feel like it. Andrew had great recommendations for us and knew all the right places to visit. He...

Andrew was fantastic with recommendations. Very knowledgeable about Islay for history and Whisky, plus you can't beat a nice dram for breakfast! Great location, central on the island and walkable to Bowmore.

This is a truly great B&B . Andrew and Allison are the most friendly hosts you will ever meet. The accommodations are spotless, the beds are perfect, the bathrooms are airy, and the wifi is excellent. The hosts will cook you a splendid Scottish breakfast to order! This place is top notch.

We,four adults, spent two nights at the annexe of Bowmore House on a bed and breakfast arrangement. Our host Andrew greeted us with a dram of the local whisky, our accommodation was excellent and the breakfasts were superb. The annexe is in fact a self catering cottage for six and is beautifully appointed and would make an ideal holiday stay...

We were there in January and it was sure cold in Islay. However, Sue, mother-in-law to Andrew, was an absolutely warm and friendly host. Andrew was very helpful even though he and his wife were not around. He emailed me to make sure we were prepared before our trip and also asked if he could help with anything before he...

Andrew and Alison simply make it look effortless. My wife and I had a 4-night stay at Bowmore House to start our honeymoon and could not have been happier. We were promptly welcomed upon arrival, received loads of information from Andrew about the island and various distilleries to help maximize our time while we were visiting. The room and bathroom...

We recently spent a long weekend on Islay for our first wedding anniversary and stayed in the Bowmore Suite. The room was very spacious, but comfortable and cosy, even during a November storm. It had a lovely view over the loch and harbour, perfect for stargazing on clear nights. Both the bedroom and bathroom were very clean with locally made...
