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

We stayed at the Solar during the Easter holiday and it is fair to say this is an exceptional guest house. It is extremely convenient to the Airport and we were given a very warm welcome by the owners, Ian and Karen and shown through the their beautiful home to our room that was as breathtaking as the views from...

B & B does not come better than this! Karen and Ian are the perfect hosts - warm, welcoming and so friendly and their house is stunning. Beautifully equipped in a stunning location with panoramic views from the bedroom balconies. But what makes it truly special are the hosts - they could not have been nicer and went out of... More

Pleased to see everyone thinks the same about this place. I stayed for one night on a business trip. Beautiful views, really handy location, and immaculate house. Huge room, bathroom and balcony and decor is stunning - really high quality. As a lone female traveller on business I loved working with the uninterrupted views to the sea, really decent wifi...

It is no surprise to me that this is a 5 out of 5 guest house - everything about my stay here was perfect. The views are tremendous, the room was comfortable, exceptionally clean and Ian and Karen could not have provided a warmer welcome. Only complaint is that I cannot buy the sausages that Ian makes himself and cooks... More

Had a very pleasant night here.. would have liked to stay longer. Karen and Ian made us feel really at home and suggested a few things to do while on the island which proved to be very sound advice. Thanks

This bed and breakfast is fabulous, and so are the people who own it. It's a beautiful house, our room was amazing, and nice views too. We had encoutered some trouble with our travel plans just as we got here, and the owners, who never met us before, went above and beyond to help us out. It was just amazing.... More
