My other half and I enjoyed a wee break together and chose to stay in style at Solas. Sooooo much better than any other hotel in town. Karen and Ian were very welcoming and made us feel at home. We were even offered a wee drink after a day out! The room was gorgeous (the whole house is stunning!) and... More

I have just returned yesterday from my stay at the Solas Guest House and had such a great time I wanted to write this review while it is still fresh in my mind. My colleague and I stayed here for 3 nights from 14th-17th January. We came in from Glasgow and Edinburgh so arrived at different times. On arrival at... More

Stayed here for two nights just before Christmas. It's in a great location near the airport and a short hop into Stornoway. Karen & Iain were excellent hosts and provided some wine & beer on arrival after a rather bumpy (and delayed) flight in from the mainland. Great room with 'hidden' en-suite and views across the bay. Breakfast was great... More

We stayed two nights, late in October. Iain and Karen were excellent hosts, making you feel right at home from the moment you arrive. The room was spacious, great ensuite, and a beautiful view. It is close to the airport, but as Karen said, it is not Heathrow, and throughout our time there had no noise etc from it. Breakfasts... More

I chanced upon the Solas Guest House back in the summer when having to go to the Western Isles with my work at short notice. They had a last minute cancellation and someone else's loss was most definitely my gain. I have had occasion to stay there another four times since and each time it's the same. The many other...

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and we weren't disappointed. The owners Karen and Iain were fantastic- they made us so welcome. The house itself was beautifully decorated and our room was so comfortable with a fabulous view. The food was great and I honestly can't fault it at all. The whole experience was perfect. We wouldn't stay... More
