Beautiful house, warm and cosy. Very nice owner, who obviously loves his house which he bought as a ruin. We were with our daughter's dog and we felt welcome. True, the dog could not come in the bar/restaurant but that's the normal practice in Scotland. As our dog is well trained, she stayed at the entrance of the restaurant and... More

We were touring round the magnificent island of Harris and popped in here for coffee and scones. A lovely location right by the sea with its own harbour. Would definitely be interested in staying here on a future visit. Made very welcome and staff were lovely.

This is a real treasure for those who want a real Hebridean experience. We stayed in one of the Flats, the size was more than adequate for our 2 weeks stay, clean tidy with enough mod cons and close to the restaurant and bar for the times we wanted to spoil ourselves. If you have a dog the staff are... More

When you arrive at the Rodel Hotel you are confronted by a large grey stone building. You know it's the Rodel hotel as it is the only building by the harbour. It is a stunning location. Walk in the plain wooden door and you enter a warm house and a fairly formal greating from Donny MacDonald the owner of the... More

Whilst on holiday we ate here one night and were surprised at the quality of food and excellent service. The hotel looks drab from the outside but is lovely inside and very welcoming. Certainly a venue to sample the amazing local fish and venison, everything was cooked and presented perfectly. The apple strudel desert was a hit too!

Having seen the previous reviews, I started to wonder whether I was being very picky. However, bearing in mind what we paid for one night, I don't think I was expecting too much. First, the moans......the room was at the top of a long flight of stairs and once in, I found it very depressing with a very small window,... More

We have driven up to, and away from, this hotel on more than one occasion in recent years because it look so drab and "closed" from the outside. Our loss! This time my father was fishing on the island so we had to go and collect his permit. We only had a drink but the staff were attentive, the scone... More

Donnie was welcoming and very knowledgeable of the island. I read other reviews where people said he was quite, I found that he wanted to allow you to enjoy your meal then would approach you to ask you how you were. It's all about relaxation for them and encouraging you to go down a gear and switch off which I... More

Rodel should be on every traveller's bucket list sitting as it does on the south east end of Harris in the Western Isles, Scotland and a stay or visit to the Rodel Hotel will make it all the more worth while. Donnie and Dena MacDonald have assembled a first class team in a world class location to provide you with... More

My wife mentioned good Czech chef. This should have been a good East German chef. We have found that the East Europeans generally makes excellent chefs. Food choice was good and my meal was excellent. Apologies all round. JC
