Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Fabulous hosts’ Margaret and Blair Rozga welcome arriving guests with tea and home-baked cakes at their handsomely furnished 19th-century house in a 300-acre expanse of farmland. Each of the antique-filled, country house-style bedrooms has its own character: two ground-floor rooms have French doors leading to a small, sheltered garden; a suite with its own entrance has a kitchen, and an extra-large bathroom with twin basins, a slipper bath and a walk-in shower. From each room, take in ‘spectacular views’ over the Islay countryside – complimentary dram of whisky in hand. Come morning, Margaret Rozga’s cooking ‘is not to be missed’ – her tasty breakfasts include home-made bread, oatcakes and preserves. ‘Nothing short of excellent.’ Drawing room, dining room, sun lounge. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). No background music. ½-acre garden. ½ mile S of Ballygrant; 10 mins’ drive to Port Askaig, for the ferry to the Isle of Jura. Children over 6 welcomed. 5 bedrooms (2 on ground floor). Per room B&B £138–£168. Credit cards not accepted. Closed Nov–Feb.

Guest comments

'What can I say that is enough to praise this wonderful place and such fabulous hosts. I visit on a regular basis and would not stay anywhere else in fact I would not visit Islay if Kilmeny was not available. ' - Bill Hall - August, 2015
'We have just returned from our third stay at Kilmeny and the experience continues to be nothing short of excellent. Margaret and Blair's hospitality is second to none, and Margaret's evening meals are definitely not to be missed. During our stay all our fellow travelers were repeat guests. ' - David Lee - September, 2013
'An idyllic, peaceful location. It is beautifully furnished, and has with a comfortable and homely feel. A warm welcome with tea, cakes and a friendly chat. Margaret and Blair make their guests feel relaxed from the minute they arrive. There is a wide choice at breakfast. Evening meals are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Guests meet before dinner. Margaret introduces them to each other before explaining the menu. Dinner is unrushed giving guests time to enjoy the excellent cuisine. Scottish hospitality at its best. ' - David Lee - June, 2012
