We spent 1 night at this very nice hotel and enjoyed it very much. Our room was very spacious and quite expensive, but it wasn't as comfortable as we expected it to be and felt it very traditional, a liitle dated. However, the owners and the staff really made this place, they were all very helpful and very friendly. Our... More

Leave behind mainland expectations of boutique hotel and enjoy the stunning location of this small family run inn. The carpets and soft furnishings are a bit tired, but the welcome is warm, the food good, and the setting just beautiful. Recommend the seafood platter of local produce - an extraordinary feast at a fraction of the price you'd pay in... More

After a long days cycling on an Easter Sunday, we needed something to eat that evening we - a party of 4, walked from a Borrisdale B&B the to hotel for something to eat. The walk was a pleasing 20 minutes, but what greeted us was an unexpected surprise. The hotel sits in its own little inlet, the quay unfussy... More

Lovely spot in Harris, right by small harbour. Donnie was a super host and the breakfasts were good. Room (Iona) was sizeable with good views over harbour, we had no hot water though which was massively disappointing as we'd been walking all day! A plumber had to be called, it was several hours before it was fixed. Too late for... More

Set in a beautiful location, wonderful food with something for everyone on the menu. Plenty local produce, home grown veg and freshly baked bread on offer. Reserve a table by the window and enjoy the beautiful view of the bay whilst enjoying your meal. Proprietors cannot do enough for you and the staff are friendly and very helpful. St Clements...

As has been mentioned before, the outside of this hotel looks quite austere, but the interior is most welcoming. We were met by the owner, Donnie, who showed us to our room, commenting, "you could play football in here". It was, indeed quite large, but very comfortable. The dinner that evening was excellent, as was the breakfast the following morning,... More

Well, maybe not exactly the edge of the world but certainly a remote and dramatic location. We loved this place. The stark exterior of the Rodel Hotel complements its austere and rugged site but totally belies the interior which could hardly be more inviting. Cross the threshold from the wild and windy landscape of east Harris and step into totally... More

We recently held a party at Rodel Hotel to celebrate my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. The service and organisation was first class. Nothing was a problem. The food was just fantastic. Our guests commented on how wonderful the location was and how comfortable the rooms were. Many thanks indeed to Dena and Donnie for looking after us so well.

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.
