My husband and I stayed at Broad Bay House for one night having had a business meeting in Inverness. We had always wanted to visit the Islands of Lewis and Harris and decided to tag one night onto the trip. Staying at Broad Bay House made the trip worthwhile (along with scenery of course). They could not have been more... More

Stunning views from the Dining Room add to the fine service and super food prepared by Ian and Marion at this small luxury retreat. Equal attention to detail and decor in the bedroom and bathroom again reflected the personal involvement of the owners. It was the perfect end to our nine day holiday trip from Mull to Stornaway.

what can I say, Broad Bay is about 7 miles outside Stornaway overlooking a lovely beach, prices are quite high but the standard of the rooms and helpful service more than justifies this Siting in the huge lounge / breakfast room in the evening overlooking the bay is a perfect way to finish off the evening. Just a shame that... More

Broadbay House is a fantastic place to stay to explore Lewis and Haris. Marion and Ian are great hosts, the food and ambience are superb. The lounge lets you sit and enjoy the wonderful outlook on a fabulous view of the water and mainland Scotland, the telescope helps watching the grey seals and bird life. Access to the beach is...

We stayed at Broad Bay House for 2 nights at the end of August. The B&B is located about 7 miles out of Stornoway in a semi rural area. It is situated on a relatively busy main road but is set back so there was no road noise. The sea views from he back of the house are fantastic. Many... More

Our stay at Broad Bay House was extremely pleasant. Our room was full of light, welcoming and rich in particulars. The lounge is comfortable and having a whisky (from the good house selection on a honesty bar basis) at dusk in front of the wide seaside windows it's great pleasure. Ian is extremely helpful and patient with inexperienced and city-oriented... More

We were lucky enough to spend two wonderful nights in Broad Bay house at the start of August. We were greeted by Ian who was very friendly and showed us the facilities and everything we needed to know about the house. They really have thought of everything you could need to have a perfect stay. It felt like you had... More

With 40 years experience as B&B and hotel guests, Broad Bay House surpasses them all, whatever their star rating. We were so impressed by the attention to detail that has gone into the design of the house, the furnishing and fittings and the service provided. For example, we particularly appreciated the powerful telescope (to watch the seals), the availability of... More

Wonderful couple of days spent at Broad Bay House, overlooking a beautiful white sandy bay. Ian and Maureen had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. More like a 5 * hotel than a guest house.

This is not the first time i am travelling to stornoway, i used to book hotels which costs same or more than this B&B. Why should you go for hotels when the luxury and warmth of a 5 Star resort is just couple of miles away. Spacious rooms with home cinema, wifi, fully licensed BAR, a mini movie library (this... More
