Before writing this review I read other reviews of this hotel and I don’t quite know how there is so much variation in people's stays at this hotel. Our experience here was short and definitely not sweet. We spontaneously booked an hour before arriving as a safe haven from the midges we had been camping with all week. Unfortunately when... More

My partner and I stayed here in 2013. We were delighted with the place. Sprung for the 4 poster bedroom and wasn't disappointed. Great nights sleep after spending the evening at the bar chatting to the owners who had good chat. Dogs were lovely too. In the morning, we had the Stornoway black pudding which was to die for.

"Car park" is horrendous with lots of pot holes and badly needs repairing. There is a musty smell throughout this lodge. The wallpaper in our bedroom certainly was not put on by a professional, or even someone who had a slight idea how to wallpaper...it was shocking. Towels left on the bed were threadbare and looked as if bleach had... More

Our 2nd visit to the Lodge, so knew our way around. We ate there both evenings that we stayed, & also had breakfast. Every meal was excellent. The bar area doesn't get a lot of customers, but moving between the Lodge & the Inn down the road, we had a great couple of evenings. It's a very informal establishment, Hazel... More

We overnighted as part of the Britstop scheme on a very wet and windy night and were welcomed in a very friendly manner. We were able to park up on a level area in a quiet corner of the carpark where we did get some shelter from the wind, We had a delicious meal and an enjoyable evening chatting to... More

True....the lodge is dated, it was built in the 1500's for goodness sake! But the true charm was Hazel who providedus with countless laughs and fond memories. She was also able to provide us with touring ideas which gave us fantastic view of the northern portion of the island. The only dissapointment was not seeing a spirit during our 2... More

Bathroom with pathetic shower attachment it was cold and shared by other residents. Car park full of pot holes a danger at night. No decent light to assist you. Went... More

The building may be actractive from the outside. Inside is a patchwork of cheap furniture, garage market collectables and bad taste. In the room we had zero water in the basin and the mattress was so gone that you can count the coils in your back. When, in the morning, we politely pointed out some inconveniences, a Popeye style land... More

Like a lot of the other reviews we had a very nice stay in the Lodge with Hazel and Peter. The lodge is dated but that is the character of the lodge and if it were modern it would not fit with the age of the lodge. Our room was clean and oozed character. The bathroom was modern and shower... More

Located in a good central location for short trips. Our room was over the bar with a four poster bed, new flat screen TV, and a new shower. Yes it can be a bit odiferous, but so what. That man can draw a nice ale. The Lodge Ale was most excellent. The owners were quite nice and welcoming. The meals... More
