...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...

From the first communication to arrange our stay to the moment we departed this unique form of accommodation I can only say every aspect was excellent. The whole incredible concept of how this establishment is run and organised is a tribute to the owner and staff. Notwithstanding that the location and surrounding beauty is astounding. Impeccable service during breakfast and... More

I cannot add anything to what the other reviewers have already stated. We had a very relaxing and comfortable visit and were made to feel at home. We enjoyed a delicious meal each evening of our two night stay and breakfasts were freshly prepared and set us up for the day. We look forward to returning in the not to... More

We stayed four nights as the first leg of a two week break touring the Islands. Amazing. Could not have been made to feel more at home by Ian and Marion. Encouraged to use the main dining room/lounge as our own with free access to Nespresso coffee and an "honesty" bar. Fresh milk in the fridge to make a cuppa.... More

We booked this as a last night of a holiday to the Outer Hebrides, intending it to be a touch of luxury to finish the holiday. We were not disappointed. If there's anything that they haven't thought of, I would be very surprised. Everything that one would expect In a very good sized room and then some. The waitress, Esther,... More

We stayed at Broad Bay House along with two friends as part of a tour of the Hebrides from north to south. Ian and Marion set out to provide the very best of accommodation in the islands and I have to say that in this objective they succeed brilliantly. Broad Bay House was our first stop and the following four... More

The lounge area is wonderful and you could simply... More
