I was one of the group of 14 photographers that stayed at the hotel in March 2014. When we arrived we were immediately offered help with moving our luggage to our rooms. The staff were incredibly accommodating with our large group, very friendly and helpful with any and every request we made. We were made to feel absolutely welcome. I... More

A friendly little hotel on the beautiful Island of Lewis - ideally situated for touring and sightseeing. Service with a smile - nothing seemed too much trouble. Food is simple but well cooked and delicious. Breakfast is hearty and an ideal start to the day. Room was clean and comfortable.

We stayed here as part of a group of 14 photographers for 5 nights in March. A very clean and comfortable family run hotel where the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and look after you. Catering for this large group was never a problem with excellent service and great humour at all meals. A... More

Stayed at the Doune Braes with my daughter while we visited relatives for a family reunion. We had a very comfortable room with a view of the water and the hills beyond. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the hotel had a comfortable home from home feel. We had an excellent full Scottish breakfast and sat for... More

A clean comfortable hotel - warm and cosy and the food was good. Staff were obliging and helpful. No complaints. We stayed at the Hotel as part of a group of photographers - the hotel was our base. Good packed lunches were supplied as well.

Me & my family came to this hotel at the beginning of September and stayed for 3 nights, we arrived there at 7pm and was met by the very welcoming owner of the hotel who then kindly showed us to our room. The room was very spacious and looked out at a delightful view of the hotels front, the beds... More

Handy for Callanish, but not recommended. Food very average, staff not well trained (not their fault). Couldn't answer any of my questions about laundry costs - or anything else in fact. The shower in my room was broken and the carpet was still wet from the problem with it the day before.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Doune Braes Hotel twice recently. As a regular visitor on the Island, I decided to stay at the Doune Braes Hotel after many enjoyable experiences there, as an evening guest in their restaurant and bar. I was not disappointed. A friend and I checked into the Hotel for 3 nights initially... More

We had a meal here 3 years ago and it was so bad that we vowed never to return. However, friends invited us to dinner and had booked the Doune Braes so we didn't like to pass comment and hoped for a better experience ... unfortunately it was just as bad! Now when a table is booked for four people... More

We visited the hotel for a meal while staying in the area. It was like going back in time, both in terms of decor and menu choices. The staff were very friendly if not a tad slow. We picked safe options on the menu (i.e. fish and chips) and it was nice. Given there isn't much in the locality they... More
