Great situation opposite the ferry terminal. A good choice for a two night stay. A fine breakfast set us up each day. The bed was very comfortable. The room was warm and cosy. Very conveniently we were able to park just outside the front door.

Stayed here a few days ago. Knocked on the door and was pleased that Ali had a room for us. He could not have been any more helpful. Thanks for my taste of black pudding in Stornoway. Great last minute find.

Arrived quite late as we were on the evening ferry but that wasnt an issue. Its ideally located, being seconds from the terminal, and only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Room was spacious and breakfast was lovely, especially the porridge. Would stay again.

Stayed here for just under a week. Owners were very helpful and friendly. I arrived too early for check in, but they went out of their way to get my room ready for me so I wasn't waiting too long. Only downside was that the heating was on a timer and the room was very cold when it wasn't on.... More

Slept well in a comfy bed slightly disturbed by creaky floorboards up stairs. Great brekky. Pleasant surprise was being told we were overcharged on... More

We stopped over in the Hal O' The Wynd for one night after a tour of the Hebrides. It is in an ideal location, close to the ferry terminal and all local amenities yet just far enough from the town centre to be quiet in the evening. The whole house is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated on a nautical theme... More

I was one of five ladies from Doha in Qatar who stayed with Aly and Shona for the Callanish Marathon at the beginning of August. We could not have made a better choice. The guest house is charming and in a peaceful setting in Stornoway, yet close to the town. The beds were so comfortable and our hosts organised an... More

Very good and pictoresque location close to the harbour and town center. We were two middle aged couples who stayed for four days. Ali and Shona were outstanding. Very frindly and helpful. Their fish n' chips is a must! The rooms were clean and comfy. Charming B&B.
