Good Hotel Guide Review

At a handsomely furnished 19th-century house on the Isle of Islay, ‘fabulous hosts’ offers guests a sweet welcome with home-baked treats and tea. Margaret and Blair Rozga’s ‘superb’ B&B is surrounded by Hebridean farmland. Country house decor and antiques style the traditional, individually designed bedrooms. A bonus in each: ‘spectacular views’ across hills, glen and countryside. Some rooms are pleasingly capacious (a generous suite with its own kitchen suits a family); others have access to a sheltered garden; all have tea, coffee, home-made biscuits; a fridge with fresh milk. A complimentary dram of whisky makes a thoughtful nightcap. Substantial farmhouse breakfasts with home-made bread, oatcakes and preserves are ‘worth getting up for’.

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
