I really, really enjoyed my three days at Lambeth Guesthouse. Everything was great. The breakfast, the room, the hospitality, the location, the cleanliness... everything was outstanding. I seriously don't have anything to complain about. If you are on Islay, book Lambeth.

I can only endorse the great reviews of Lambeth Guest House that have already been written. I have been satying in numerous other premises on Islay for the past 30 years and for some strange reason this was my first time in Lambeth and it certainly won't be my last. The only proviso to this is if I'm allowed back...

This was the sixth trip to Islay staying with Margaret at Lambeth Guest House & it has improved each time. We stayed in fairly good quality hotels on the way up & back & the rooms were poor in comparison to Lambeth. Everything is always immaculate with no problems with things not working as intended & lots of little touches...

What a warm welcome and a supremely comfortable place to stay. Wonderfully comfy beds, sleek en-suite and a breakfast to set you up for the day! Very convenient location straight accross the road from the Bowmore Hotel where we had an excellent eveing meal. Margaret made us feel really at home and I'd definately stay again!

While working on Islay for a week I was booked in to Lambeth Guest House and from the moment I arrived I felt at home. Nothing was any bother for my hosts and the room was very clean, comfortable and well set out. The location is central and quiet. I will definitely stay here again

My husband and I came for a 4 night stay during October for a friends wedding. We could have not asked for a better place to stay. Lambeth house literally makes you feel like you are right a home. Margaret and her husband are amazing people! They helped with anything they could. Breakfast was absolutely incredible. The rooms were always...
