I am working away from home .Derek and Margaret have made me more than welcome and took care of all my needs to make my trip worry free. They have went beyond helpfully in my eyes. I was booked in here for 3 weeks and hoping to extend and add another 4weeks . I am getting evening meals too and... More

Lovely B&B run by a very helpful couple. When we booked they offered to come & pick us up too, very impressed, but we were on cycle break for a few days. They managed to put us up an extra night due to ferry strike too. Rooms comfortable with TV & radio which we didn't use anyway. Internet was poor... More

This is an excellent guest house in Stornoway. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast is superb and owners are extremely helpful and knowledgable about area. Few minutes walk in to town and 15 mins from airport. Highly recommend this place

Lovely B&B in a really great spot- 5 mins from the centre and near the black pudding shop! Our hosts were really lovely and helpful and we would defiantly return here. Thanks for the lovely breakfast and clean rooms!

Overnight stay due to work in the Harbour area. Lovely house and very spacious room, clean and tidy and everything you need, inc a reasonable WIFI signal which out in the Islands is usually patchy. Really helpful owners, Derek kindly gave me a lift to my evening site visit and then dropped me at my evening restaurant for my meal,... More

Although the beds in the twin room were a bit creaky the rest of the stay was wonderful. Fantastic hosts who could not do enough for you. Premises very clean and the cooked breakfast lasted us all day. Will definitely return if ever in Stornoway.

We very much enjoyed our three-day stay at the Fernlea. Derek and Margaret were friendly and helpful, and very responsive to our special interests. They not only gave excellent suggestions about where to go and what to do but in many cases made the arrangements as well. Derek is from Glasgow and Margaret from Carloway on the west coast of...

There were a few of us staying in various guest houses around Stornoway over the weekend of The Harris Tweed Tattoo and those of us lucky enough to stay at Fernlea Guest House were very happy with our experience. Greeted by friendly owners and shown to our rooms, which were spotless, well decorated, cosy and comfy, we found every aspect... More
