Had booked the Honeymoon Suite in this hotel for 1 night the day after getting married. Had heard the Honeymoon Suite was really special in this hotel and wanted something special for the night before leaving the Island. Arrived at the hotel to be told we wouldn't be staying in the Suite due to issues with the heating and that... More

As other reviewers have stated this place seems to have gone downhill. We came for a christmas dinner and were left hungry. We didnt want the full 3 courses so opted for the christmas turkey dinner which i think was a bad mistake. At £18 a plate i was hoping for a big dinner full of christmas fayre. It arrived... More

Ate here this week after visiting friends on the island. Have been a few times in the past and could not fault the place. Very different on this occasion and would appear either the management or chef has changed. The food, albeit decent, was not its usual delicious self and the portions/serving style were slightly unnecessary. The pate arrived in... More

After a cold trip to Butt of Lewis lighthouse (with no loos in sight), then finding the Cross Inn closed on a Monday, we arrived here looking forward to some warmth and hot food. And what a hit this was. Such friendly staff, a great restaurant with good views, a good selection of food (the chilli was to die for,... More

An absolute gem of a hotel, would have been 5 stars had t not have been the very poor wifi. Arrived quite late on business, prompt and efficient check in, and shown to a massive room on the second floor. Room very well decorated and huge. Bathroom spotless. Had a meal on both nights, food could not be faulted, plenty... More

The setting is lovely and the restaurant clean and very comfortable and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. There may be a slight wait as all food is cooked from... More

We made reservations for three premium rooms one year in advance and confirmed the reservation one month in advance. When we arrived not all of our rooms were available. No explanation, just that there was a mix up. When we checked out we asked the manager what happened and got only a curt we don't really know -just a mix... More

I cannot sing the praises for this hotel highly enough. I was here for a 3 day trip on business in September 2014 and I have to say it was one of the best hotels I have had the pleasure to stay in. The hotel has been renovated to a very high standard and it's obvious there has been no... More
