I would highly recommend the Decca's self-cater cottages. On the first floor, our cottage had a living room with books and DVDs (with more available from the B&B portion of the Decca), a kitchen with washing machine (no dryer), and a bathroom with shower stall. There was also a locked door that could be opened to provide one extra bedroom,... More

Fantastic hospitality. All the comforts you might need and no airs and graces. The food was delicious, real home cooking using locally sourced fish and home grown produce and generous portions. The home made bread and veggie white pudding for breakfast was a particular treat. It was just a shame we were only there for the one night.

If an island is your idea of a dream holiday, if white sand beaches and turquoise seas under cloudless blue skies call to you, head to Lewis in the outer Hebrides. We were there for only four days but did not want to come home. And as for accommodation? We stayed at the Decca in Lionel near to Port Ness.... More

We spent 3 nights here whilst touring the islands. Brilliant little spot. Made to feel very welcome and felt we were staying with friends. Food was great, particularly impressed by the effort put into the veggie food! Had a music night too which was fab. Great quirky and friendly spot on a breathtaking island.

The Decca is a quirky B&B in an interesting location and with very warm and friendly hosts. They provide good evening meals upon request, bake their own bread and play music which is all great. However, we were disappointed in the accommodation. Our double room was very small, with no wardrobe and a bed which creaked alarmingly every time my... More

So sorry you were not totally happy with your stay at The Decca but we are very glad you enjoyed the rest of your trip through the Outer Hebrides. The Decca is, as you rightly say, not a conventional guest house nor a hotel. We are very lucky to live in an unusual. quirky and interesting building with an important... More

We hired one of the self catering houses attached to the Decca for a surf trip over Easter. The house itself was more than perfect for our needs and we loved how flexibly the rooms had been laid out to cater for all different types of visit! What makes the Decca stand out as more than just self catering is... More

Despite staying almost at the end of the World, the Decca is worth to stay. The housekeepers welcomed us so friendly and we could really enjoy our three days here. We eat two times there and we've got freshly cooked meals with vegtables straight out of their garden! Furthermore, they Play live music during supper!
