I stayed at this hotel last week, the place was quiet ( I was the only guest). I had booked a double room but up graded to the Broch suite, great being able to relax after a stressful day in a comfy chair. the bed was also cosy and had a sound sleep. the bar was closed but they made... More

A rarity on the island. We had coffee here and returned for Sunday lunch. Our waitress both times was delightful and very welcoming. Sunday lunch was pleasant - like your mums sunday lunch really. Hot Fudge cake yummy though! Warm and a rare find on an island that does not do a lot to welcome tourists. Toilets and eating area... More

What a wonderful time we spent in Doune Braes. We were there with an impossibly large group for a conference. Doune Braes is old kind of quaint and a little quirky, it is a hotel that feels like a hug. We all lived there, for ten days. Good food good sleep warm against the weather and the most magnificent friendly... More

Stayed in the "Brock Suite" which was nice - in 1972! Main light in bedroom didn't work, spiders and webs about and cupboards that didn't close due to hotel items being stored in there. The people were nice but was pretty much ignored in the bar. Bar staff more interested in the locals and private conversation. Won't be staying again.

Had to stay in this Hotel as Booking .com had doubled booked me.Arrived late due to coming off the ferry. The staff are great, friendly and very helpful. The rooms do need updating but were clean. The breakfast was amazing.

We booked here mainly because it met the requirements of the two rooms we needed and not really for any other reason. As others have said, it is a bit dated but we weren't really bothered about that as it seemed nice and clean. The rooms were fine with all the basic requirements although, from room 8 you can hear...

It was our first visit to the Outer Hebrides and we had made this booking online, not knowing what to expect. It is a dated hotel but that was the beauty of it. In a secluded location it was a long drive from the ferry. But that said, enjoying the Hebrides calls for a lot of long drives. We are... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at this place. This is located 20miles from Stornway so be prepared to drive to it as you get of the ferry. The GPS does take you to it but drive slowly as you near the place else you may drive past it. It's a nice but a dated property for the price charged.... More

Stopped off for a bar meal on way to Callanish stones. Although it was very quiet, we were given a warm welcome. It was bar food and was a bit on pricey side. Maybe if prices were reduced it would be busier. Food was tasty, if I'm honest I not sure I would go back due to the price.
