There are few occasions where a B&B exceeds my expectations in every way, Broad Bay House is that exception. Located a few miles out of Stornaway about 2 minutes walk from the sandy beach and sea, it is perfectly located for walking, swimming (a touch cold this time of the year) and checking out the marine wildlife. The rooms are... More

We chose Broad Bay House as the location for our 25th Wedding Anniversary retreat/second honeymoon...and we are so glad that we did. Everything about Broad Bay House and Ian and Marion was perfect, they've thought of everything and it was all to such a high standard. Our only regret is that we only ate their once, the food was delicious.... More

We spent three nights with Ian and Marion and loved every moment. The whole building reeks of class and everything is of the highest quality. The communal living area is quite outstanding, well furnished with views to die for. Our bedroom, at the back of the house (as my wife needs a bath in the bathroom) was large and well... More

This is definitely the place to stay for as long as you can manage. The food is excellent. Ian and Marion are fantastic hosts. The local ordinance maps they supplied were a great help in getting around the islands on day trips. One feature that was really helpful during our 9 night stay was the washer and dryer. Don't even... More

This was the perfect place to stop overnight and we wish that we had more time to enjoy it because we arrived rather late and left fairly early due to other engagements. That said, we still were able to enjoy the guest lounge before dinner (we stayed on a night that dinner was not served) and a short walk on... More

We stayed for just one night, but would have happily spent a week here! The house has just 4 bedrooms and is beautifully furnished - everything looks like new! We had a wonderful welcome from the owner, fantastic service at dinner and breakfast and excellent food. The house is nicely located overlooking the beach and the owner has a wealth... More

The only complaint I have about this outstanding establishment overlooking lovely Broad Bay, north of Stornoway, is the fact that most guests do not stop over long enough to savour fully the peace, hospitality and magic of this place. The two hosts, Ian and Marion, are the most considerate one may wish for. Accommodation is very good, and they have... More

We stayed only for a night but wished it had been a week. This very special guesthouse has everything you could want for relaxing and chilling out both inside and in. Ian was so helpful and accommodated our cyclist needs/bikes/bike bags etc. we had a lovely walk on what felt like a private beach and sat marvelling at the views... More

Imagine you're sitting surrounded by candles looking out to sea - you've just had an amazing meal, good wine, and first class meal. You move across to your leather armchair, put your feet up and glass in hand pick up a great travel magazine. This place is all wood floors leather sofas white cotton sheets large fluffy towels and luxury.... More

We had a wonderful one night stay at Broad Bay last month and would love to return soon for a longer break. We were most impressed by the quality of the accommodation, attention to detail, delicious food and kind hospitality. The panoramic views from the dining room/lounge - with sightings of seabirds and seals - will stay long in the... More
