We LOVED our stay at Islay House. The house itself is well-kept and updated while maintaining it's own character. The heated floors in the bathroom were a nice extra. Our rooms were comfortable and we have absolutely no complaints about any of the facilities. The real standout though was the unbeatable service. The house staff were wonderful. They preempted our every need and were perfectly attentive. They were happy to prepare meals to go and had them ready for the following days without us needing to ask! As for location, Islay House is perfect for hopping around all the distilleries. It was a great central base to hit every edge of the island. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful views, immaculate room and 5 star service. Visiting off season gave us the place (almost) to ourselves.

The Islay House was absolutely fantastic. The grounds are incredible and the staff was equally if not exceedingly amazing. Can not recommend this place enough. Whatever the circumstance that brings you to Islay House, there is no possible way to leave disappointed.
