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

The welcome is always warm and the food us always great albeit pricey. Frustratingly poor grasp of english by the waiting staff and it would be great if there was more seafood on the menu. Will always go back for more as the food is too good to miss!

Only one night at the Rode and it's restaurant. First impression from the outside a bit tired but step inside, homely and very welcoming. Stayed in Jocks room great view of the small harbour and key side and very comfortable. Owner and staff really friendly and first rate service and food.

Wonderful, peaceful location at the tip of Harris with great sea views of the other Hebridian islands, plus lots of walks to do from the hotel - and no midges by the coast. This small hotel may not look grand but it was our favourite hotel on this holiday. We had Jessie’s room; it has no view to speak of,... More

We were made to feel very welcome at this small hotel and restaurant in South Harris. We stayed for 4 nights with our dog. Breakfast and dinners were great, substantial and locally sourced. Dog welcome in room and lounge but not bar or restaurant. Room was clean, warm and quiet. Only negative was the bland uninspiring decor. Will return. Thank... More
