Good Hotel Guide Review

Tea and home-baked cake welcome guests to this ‘superb’ B&B, in a handsomely furnished 19th-century house surrounded by acres of farmland on the Isle of Islay. Margaret and Blair Rozga are the ‘fabulous hosts’. Each of the traditionally furnished bedrooms has its own style, with country house decor, antiques aplenty and ‘spectacular views’ over hills, glen and wide countryside. A complimentary dram of whisky makes a thoughtful nightcap. Some rooms are particularly spacious: two access a sheltered garden; a suite with a separate entrance has a kitchen, and an extra-large bathroom with twin basins, a slipper bath and a walk-in shower. Breakfast brings home-made bread, oatcakes and preserves. ‘Nothing short of excellent.’ ½ mile S of Ballygrant; 10 mins’ drive to Port Askaig.

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
