This is an amazing small kotel - asoemwhere between a "country house" and a "designer hotel. You feel you actualy own the place - the staff normally talk to you by your first name, the place is immensly comfortable and well equipped and th efood is good It is not cheap but a great place for a break

Once you experience the Islington, you may never ever want to leave .... the most lovely hotel I have stayed in. It's like being invited into a beautiful home, and your host insisting you enjoy every corner of their pride and joy. The team who run the Islington greet you like treasured friends making the service unique. The open kitchen,...

Be prepared, it is expensive but worth every cent if you want a memorable getaway. The endless gourmet breakfast (included in room rate) is in a beautiful light filled room with open fire. The food is fabulous and the staff are exceptional. We had a superb dinner there one night and cannot fault this luxurious world-class bed and breakfast hotel....

Fantastic little hotel away from town , nice 30 min walk to the water front. We stayed in three different rooms as the hotel was fully booked and our trip was a last minute trip. The Attic room , small but very nice. The Garden / Mountain view room, this was our favourite, we were on the top level, very...

Oh My God (OMG)! The kids use this acronym way too much but it understates The Islington. From coming thru the front gate to being cheerfully and genuinely met at the front door the experience only gets better. Frankly, we wish we could just live their permanently at the hotel. Morning coffee, breakfast, cheerfulness, bed time tea and chocolate, the...

a very enjoyable experience from the time we arrived to the time that we checked out, nothing was a problem for the staff to do and it felt like that they truly enjoyed working at this hotel. It is a small hotel but full of life and dedicated people.

I decided to stay at Islington Hotel as it seemed very intimate, small house with dedicated service. Once arrived, I was not disappointed. I was happy to know this is an child-free hotel as this kind of hotels are more peaceful than those family oriented. We stayed for 2 nights in the Wellington Room. This room was the perfect choice...

The hotel is small. 11 rooms only. The staff are really friendly and render excellent service. The antique and the art work are beautiful. We have three days of fond memory of the hotel. The breakfast is made to order, delicious and rich. Fresh fruit supply everyday. Coffee and tea any time.

Rarely do you stay in a hotel where you feel all the staff love their work, that was the feeling my husband and I got from our stay at the Islington. Happy faces and warm greetings are the norm here. From our arrival to our departure we found that we did not need to ask for anything as any attention...

We stayed 1 night in September and while the art and antiques were fascinating, the restaurant service left a lot to be desired. We went for dinner about 7 pm and ordered almost immediately. However it was just under a hour before we got bread and anything to eat. The food presentation looked good but was lacking in much taste...
