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

Our three night in late June was a delight. Ian and Marion set a very high standard of hospitality. We especially enjoyed the delightful guest room with enticing sea views over to the mainland. We would love to return as the standard of amenities offered made for a great break. The evening meal was delicious, lots of fresh local produce... More

...they would do it like Broad Bay! I was a bit surprised to see that the house was between other properties as that is not obvious from the photos but inside does not disappoint. Ian welcomed us at the door and showed us the well stocked library (with many guide books and maps to borrow) as well as the dining... More

This Guesthouse is located right by the sea north of Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis, easily reached by car. The house consists of 4 guestrooms with en suite bathrooms and a lounge for guest use. Our room was reasonably spacious and perfectly equipped. The beds were most comfortable and there was no amenity missing. The bathroom was modern yet... More

What a wonderful place. The room was perfect, lovely bed and a fantastic bath! The guest lounge stunning with views over the sea and an opportunity to spy on seals going about their business on a nearby island through the house telescope. A warm welcome on arrival, and great service throughout including an excellent breakfast!! The extra touches meant that... More

The level of food, furniture, bathroom, bed, TV, stereo, cleanness etc. is perfect. The number of rules to follow, the strictness in timing established somehow a feeling of obsession. Real perfection in hospitatity would need some flexibility in case of deviation and room for impovisation. The style of Italian hospitality could be a role model. The guesthouse is boxed between...
