My partner & I stayed at the Solas Guest House for three nights during a trip to Harris & Lewis. Driving down towards Solas Guest House, along a narrow counrty road with a view of a beautiful open bay, we knew this was a special location. We were welcomed in by Karen & Ian as if we were family visiting... More

I stayed here on my own for one night on a business trip. Ian and Karen are so friendly and welcoming and made me feel at home straight away. It is right next to the airport so very handy if you don't know the area. Karen offered me some fresh milk to make some tea which was lovely. The room... More

When I arrived I was made to feel so welcome and it was like visiting distant family relatives. I cannot put into words how warm, sincere and homely the welcome was. The room is by far the most luxurious room in which I have ever stayed. I've never stayed in five star luxury but I should imagine this is what... More

Solas is an amazing Guest House, situated in a beautiful location in a spectacular part of Scotland - what more could you ask for. The rooms and beds are comfortable and spotlessly clean. The view from my room and the balcony was spectacular - in all weathers. I was working in Stornoway for a week, this was my home from... More

Warm and welcoming couple, separate... More

We received a warm welcome from a fairly young couple at this pleasant B&B, and they immediately made a restaurant reservation for us. Our room (they have 2) was large and comfortable, though a little stuffy, as they had been unable to open the patio doors (no windows) due to windy weather. The room was well furnished and decorated to... More

This is the third visit to Solas and this is without doubt one of the very best B&Bs in Britain. Iaan and Caren are marvelous hosts (best porridge we have ever tasted),the rooms are immaculate and the views are glorious and the sunsets superb, cannot wait to go back.

Outstanding stay. Ian & Karen are first class hosts and provide the best breakfasts on the island - stayed at many other BB whilst on Harris & Lewis and Ian's breakfast especially his black pudding won by a mile. Our room was very spacious, spotless and comfortable. Would certainly stay here again if returning to Lewis. Loved the view from... More
