My wife and I stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon in Scotland. Staying at Kilmeny on Islay was the perfect way to conclude a wonderful holiday. We actually made a booking at another B&B and there was a mixup - we were very fortunate to have found an alternative at Kilmeny. We were offered the suite, which...

Kilmeny is in a lovely setting with extensive views. We were greeted by the charming and very solicitous Margaret, who offered us tea. We were booked into the Apricot Room, but were shown to the Gold, a spacious, long room with eaves and £10 more but worth the extra. It was immaculate, with lots of comfy chairs, a large bathroom...

Excellent from start to finish - There had been a slight mix-up with our booking but Margaret bent over backward to get somewhere for my husband and myself to stay for 2 nights which she did and when we did arrive at Kilmeny we were given tea and cakes in the sitting room before being shown up to our room...

I wish there were 6 stars for the excellent food and service we experienced at the Kilmeny Guest House. My wife and I stayed here in the midst of 2 weeks in Scotland.

This is an excellent place to stay if you aim for quality and an extraordinary environment. Margaret is a perfect host providing a very professional and and warm atmosphere. From Kilmeny you can easily discover the whole island day by day. The dinner Margaret provides on request on Tuesday and Thursday is an experience by itself. Don't miss it! Bernd...

All those great reviews are correct - we loved our visit to Kilmeny! Arriving on the last ferry, we were warmly greeted by our hosts and welcomed to our room which did, as I'd hoped, have those homemade oat cookies and that wee decanter of Islay whisky!!! We'd come to take in two days of the annual whisky festival, but,...

Once you have stayed at Kilmeny Country House you are spoiled forever. You compare every other accommodation with its standard and you hardly find an equal.
