Good quality, spotlessly clean B&B with excellent breakfasts (especially the poached eggs!). Friendly owners (who have been running the place for along time) and beautifully kept garden outside. Good location for exploring the Uists.

Purpose built nice guest house with good sized rooms. Greta, the friendly host, suggested good places to visit and provided a fine breakfast. Hotel / pub nearby for evening meals. Ask about the local deli which is tucked away but a real gem when you find it.

During our tour of the Hebrides we stayed here for two nights. Our room though small was comfortable. Our compact ensuite had everything you needed plus a few special extras. Access to free wifi and availability of a computer if required in the lounge was a bonus. Greta was very friendly and made us feel most welcome. Her breakfasts were... More

We stayed for 2 nights to run the Benbecula Half Marathon. This B&B is close to the race start / finish at Liniclate School, so very convenient. Although Gretta was away that weekend (for the Breast Cancer Moonwalk in Edinburgh) Calum looked after us without any problem. The en-suite room was a good size with many nice touches (toothbrush /... More

The answer is superb, I've been sampling B & Bs for 30 years and Borve is up with the very best. The rooms were roomy, the food was wonderful and the ambience very welcoming. I cannot rate this high enough a credit to the tourist industry. Flying Scot2014

Very friendly lady and breakfast all very nice. We had rung to say we were going to check in after 6, which had been received as no problem. However, it was the briefest of greetings and we felt must have interrupted something for the owner, but certainly not an issue to concern us. Great location within walking distance of Dark... More

Certainly not the friendliest. No one there on our arrival although we had hung around for hours to make sure we arrived within stipulated checking-in time - between 4 and 6pm!! Still no-one there when we went out for our meal and no-one to be seen when we arrived back circa 10pm although receipt of our pre-payment was mysteriously flung... More

Having experienced three great bed and breakfasts in the Hebrides, I was disappointed with the welcome - or rather lack of. In fairness I forgot to read the e-mail that said we had to check-in between 4pm or 6pm or phone them to say that we would be late - however who is the customer? This is a professionally run... More

Stayed here for one night at short notice, booked by Tourist Information in Tarbert (who were very helpful). It was a very lucky find - everything was spot on. A nice modern house, spotlessly clean. Excellent ensuite room, friendly welcome from Mr and Mrs Campbell, wifi, TV, nice lounge. Breakfast was very, very good - you can choose the night... More
