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!

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

A bit old fashioned, could do with some T L C and a good few air freshners put in all the rooms. Rooms are small, shower is tiny. However Great choice of dinner menu and food was good. Breakfast was average. Was a little disapointed overall....

orasayinn, Owner at Orasay Inn, responded to this review

The accommodation chosen by the reviewer was in the rooms described as 'small (not tiny) double or twin' . The size is dictated by the price one wishes to pay. How can she say that 'a good few air fresheners put in all the rooms'. They only used 2 rooms. It is unfortunate that she found the shower tiny. Not... More

I only stayed for one night but I was really impressed by this hotel. Alan and Isobel made me feel very welcome, in ways that you rarely see in hotels these days - even small ones; simple things like the personal touch of showing me around my room. The rooms are a decent size and very comfortable with all the... More

Not my taste for accommodation - a bit basic for me ! The whole place is "quaint" and those large sofas are mathmatically positioned in the lounge area - Got a bit of a feel about a the guesthouses I stayed at way back in the 80s especially the "bar" and dining room. But credit to the FOOD it was... More

Having dined in The Restaurant the previous night, we booked in to this hotel to experience "the whole package" . We certainly weren't disappointed! The welcome received from Allan couldn't have been warmer - he even escorted us to our lovely big comfortable bedroom. Our meal was superb just like the night before. The menu leaves one spoilt for choice,... More
