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

One of the best B&B"s I have ever stayed in. Margaret and Derek made us feel very comfortable they are extremely helpful and thoughtful, and breakfast with Stornoway Black Pudding 12/10 a must if you visit here. Clean, inviting, friendly, the house itself is gorgeous. If I ever have the good fortune of visiting here again it will definitely be... More

We stayed 2 nights at Fernlea. Good location less than 10 minutes walk to Stornoway town centre. Rooms were of a reasonable size although the en suite are quite cramped. Breakfast was excellent. The owners were helpful about answering any questions. We had to leave early on our final day and we were provided with a packed lunch in lieu... More

During a visit to Scotland, my husband and I decided on a last minute trip to the Isle of Lewis. This involved traveling to Stornoway and spending the night. We arrived at the Fernlea a bit late in the day, but were warmly greeted, and checked into a cozy room. The host asked about our plans, and offered to assist... More

After a long car and ferry trip the Fernlea in Stornoway welcomes you with friendly open arms. Margaret and Derek go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The breakfast was always spot on and the lunch pack was just right when you spend the whole day at lonely bays and beaches. The overall ambience... More

Lovely bed and breakfast in a well maintained villa near to town centre. Ensuite slightly cramped but good sized double bedroom. Spotlessly clean in all areas. The full Scottish breakfast is one of the best we've ever had, featuring the local Stornoway black pudding. Friendly and efficient hosts Margaret and Derek always on hand to help and offer advice. Thoroughly... More

Stopped here only for one night during a motorbike tour of Scotland and the islands. The place was very friendly and the bikes well looked after. Room big and a nice coffee tray in the room with chocky biscuits (I managed to leave them alone). I am not one for the flowers on the bed covers, but others will love... More

We traveled through Scotland by car, and came to Lewis for three nights. Derek and Margaret were fantastic hosts and accomodated us so wonderfully. The rooms are spacious and clean, and Derek and Margaret made us feel so welcome in Fernlea and in Stornoway. The breakfast was fantastic, and next time we will make sure to try to the dinner....
