Stayed here as first stop on a North-South Outer Hebrides hop, nicely appointed hotel, comfortable rooms, well stocked bar and a good quality restaurant/dining room offering a nice selection of well cooked food. Will come back here next time.

We spent 3 nights here while touring the sites of both Lewis and Harris. While Tarbert is a tiny village, it is perfectly situated if you want to travel around both isles. Our room was gorgeous and spacious with bot a lounge area with the TV and sofas and a separate sleeping area that looked out over the front gardens.... More

Stayed at the Harris Hotel for three nights and must say that it was a great experience! Room was light and airy and had a view of the back grounds and the Tarbert Harbour. The owner and her staff were attentive and extremely accomodating - even helping out during a transportation bind. Dinners were huge so best to come with... More

I stayed here for three nights in April 2014. The first thing I saw upon arriving in my room was the ferry leaving - a lovely start to a peaceful and restorative visit. The staff could not have been kinder. When I returned from a walk in the soaking rain, they put my coat to dry in the wet room.... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. We had a double room which overlooked the back of other bits of the hotel. I think the room had been modernised and was perfectly functional, just not particularly inspiring. In saying that, the bed was really comfy and it was immaculately clean. We went to the restaurant for dinner one evening... More

On a recent trip to Harris I stayed here for two nights. The hotel was clean, comfortable with very polite and helpful staff. The evening meals on both occasions were fantastic. Steak cooked to perfection, sea food lightly prepared, and delicious deserts. The restaurant certainly took this hotel to a different standard than its 3 star rating suggests. My only... More

We stayed two nights on a recent tour in Scotland. I had stayed there in 2013 and remembered it as having a good standard and good food. Very different this time - we asked several weeks in advance for gluten-free food to be available - yet none was. Rather tired air to the whole place, staff not able to help... More

This could be such a nice hotel but the owners lack any attention to detail. Staff seem robot like even when we tried to make light conversation. Food average and the restaurant is uninspiring in its decor as are the public areas.

Honestly looking around Tarbert, I wasn't expecting much from the Harris Hotel and initially regretted not booking somewhere in the much larger Stornoway. That was before I checked in. No labyrinthine passageways, a proper bar stacked with a large number of whiskys, and friendly and professional staff abound. It was very quiet there which is indicative of Tarbert as a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a Delux Double room (room 10) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The public areas have a retro homely feel to them, with a cosy bar and a comfy living room area. The bedroom was much more contemporary in style and I really liked the contrast. The food was great, particularly the evening menu, and... More
