This was booked for us and all reviews led us to believe it was fab - sadly not so. On arrival it looked tired and in need of a lick of paint etc. we were greeted by the landlady wearing a dirty apron as she was in the middle of cooking lunch for some guests. Our room was billed as... More

Wow. Really posted much faster than we expected but expect it we did. I'm sure the dull weather did not help this couple's demeanour and the added disruption of the ferry strike certainly wouldn't help. Their reservation was extended by the tour company but then on the last day they arranged with the company to change the reservation as they... More

Very friendly, helpful and capable owners and staff. Clean, warm and comfortable room. A comprehensive, well thought out menu with beautifully cooked food. Relaxed atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended. Will return as soon as possible.

The couple who run this hotel are just lovely and nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent and it's warm and comfortable. It's very unpretentious and while the rooms may not be luxurious there is everything you need. When you go to the islands what's important to me is friendliness and this place deserves 5 stars for that.... More

Staff are really friendly they will help you in any way they can and they have some of the best food you will find on the islands. Rooms are comfortable. They also have a hairy Highland coo that you can pet. Great place to stay

We didn't stay at Orasay Inn so cannot comment on the rooms, but when staying in a nearby cottage we walked up and had dinner one evening. The plan for the week was to self-cater and it’s a good job we left it until Thursday to eat here or we would have been here every night and not bothered cooking... More

I'm just back from my first visit to the Western Isles and the Orasay Inn. I was here with work originally for 3 nights but due to weather it turned into 4 but my hosts Alan & Isobel couldn't have been more helpful with vehicle issues,veggie options and an extra nights accomodation despite the challenges that the weather brought! The... More

Stayed for two nights during a tour of the Outer Hebrides. Had selected the hotel based on location and suggestions and we were very glad we had as we certainly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are not luxurious but they are sufficiently spacious with all facilities and nicely maintained. Isabelle is a great cook and we reaaly enjoyed our cooked... More

We stayed 3 nights while exploring the area. The room was very comfortable, clean and relaxing. The staff are friendly and the food delicious. The hotel is quite remote but then everything in the area is remote - that's why you visit the area. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Dined in this fantastic hotel/restaurant tonight. Wee bit out of the way but well worth the visit. Shared seafood platter to start - thankfully waitress advised us to share as it was big - took her advice and didnt regret it - fabulous selection and very fresh. Next course was monkfish on bed of sautéed leeks with coconut and bacon... More

Stayed two nights here in the middle of the recent heatwave and were delighted with the welcome in this small hotel. We had three of the small rooms as the larger ones were already booked. Although they are small there is everything you require including an extremely comfortable bed and two good bedside reading lights which made reading in bed... More
