Despite being told the normal arrival times, I arrived before noon and asked if I could leave my bike panniers, whilst I traveled to Ness and back. That was no problem at all. I later returned to find a very comfortable and well equipped room, complete with laptop computer - should I have required the use of one. The bathroom... More

Our first visit to the White House and what a great B&B ideally located for exploring the West Coast of Lewis and handy for Stornoway. David and Lesley are wonderful hosts - and being a keen photographer I very much enjoyed David's wonderful collection of photographs of the Islands. Certainly recommend the White House - no hesitation to return again... More

Fantastic stay at this B&B. I was there for short break to see the sights of Lewis. Ideally located for tourist hotspots. Excellent room, food and hosts. Thank you for a lovely stay and hope to be back again soon.

While touring the Isles of Lewis and Harris with my wife we wanted to stay at least one night on the Atlantic Ocean coast. This affordable B & B is situated down a small lane away from the main road, and only ten minutes walk from the beach. It is only about 25 minutes by car from there to The... More

We spent 2 days at the White House B&B and really enjoyed it. The room was realy beautiful and we felt comfortable. We get great hints about the surroundings and good places to take photos. Lewis is a beautiful island and we plan to come back. Our first choice will be to get this B&B again.

Absolutely spotless, extremely comfortable, every calculated need in the room catered for, B&B perfect breakfast provided by Lesley, however, despite this precise efficiency there are a few heartfelt needs which could have been met with good old-fashioned empathy. A sign at the end of the road would help your guests locate their bed for the night - despite "it being... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and thank you for the positive comments on the services that we advertise. Old fashioned empathy is often coloured by any attitude presented and we were not aware of your "heartfelt needs". Unaware that you were cyclists, you telephoned after 7.00pm, not to state that you were late for our... More

David and Lesley really try to think of everything you might need during your stay and are very accommodating - e.g. lending me a handheld vacuum cleaner to help me clean out my hire car to avoid the (slightly strange) penalty for returning it unclean. The freshly cooked muffins in the room on our first day were a particularly nice... More

Unfortunately, we spent only one night at this B & B but it was definitely the best we have had in a week spent in the Hebrides. Room spotless, staff friendly and welcoming, great breakfast! rated 10 +

I stayed at the White House B&B as part of a fishing tour of the Western Isles. Having stayed in many B&Bs in my time, I can say that David and Lesley are the perfect hosts and run the perfect bed and breakfast. My room was immaculate and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were also excellent and kept me going way... More

I recently spent three days at the White House and really enjoyed my stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Lewis, for as well as being very comfortable it offers exceptional value. David and Lesley are a lovely couple and made us feel extremely welcome, and offered lots of helpful suggestions as to good places to visit on... More
