Lower Volga, Russia
Reviewed 23 March 2017

We stayed at Kentraw recently and I cannot praise it enough. The rooms are absolutely fantastic and brilliant value for money, particularly in comparison to other establishments on the island. Great breakfast. The whole place is spotlessly clean and brilliantly run by two genuinely lovely people. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I am delinquent in writing this review, but as we make plans to return to Islay, the first thing I am checking on is Isabel and Donald's availability at Kentraw. They are welcoming, wonderful people who have created a comfortable, affordable and clean B&B. There is no reason to stay anywhere else on Islay - they are perfectly situated between...

We stayed at the Kentraw Farmhouse in February 2017 for 3 nights and enjoyed every moment of it. The standalone house is situated on a tiny elevation overlooking the beach and other parts of Islay. The location is very quiet and relaxing, but also a perfect starting point to discover the island. The house is super comfy and clean, feelgood...

I would struggle to find anything negative to say about Kentraw. The rooms are stylish, comfy and spotlessly clean. The sitting room with log burner is cosy and welcoming. A wide range of hot and cold drinks is available at all times, with home baked treats appearing in the afternoon. The breakfasts are delicious. Isabel and Donald are hospitality personified...

This was my 2nd 4 night stay at the Kentraw while on Islay for work. The next time I am there whether with work or with family, I will be hoping there is a room free here. The rooms are comfortable and spotless with some good views. There is no tea/coffee facilities in the room, however the alternative on offer...

My wife and I stayed here for one night. The room was spotlessly clean. The furniture and fittings are of very good quality. As an engineer, I was interested to see that there was a wind turbine in the field behind the house. On a windy day, this will supply all the electricity requirements for the house. The breakfast was...

It is hard to believe, that such a wonderful place combined with such wonderful people as Isabel and Donald, really exists. It does!

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Kentraw Farmhouse and can't recommend it enough.
