I was advised to use this B and B and I am glad that I did. The nearby Dark Island Hotel was full, thankfully as it is going downhill. However, it is only a 10 - 15 minute walk to the hotel to get an evening meal. The guest is house is lovely. A terrifically warm welcome and a spotless... More

Only stayed one night but had a perfectly enjoyable stay. Owners were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was great. The bed was comfortable and we appreciated the extra wee touches of toiletries etc.

We hadn't booked phoned on the off chance and there was a twin room free. The room was well presented. It didn't have an ensuite but it did have a private bathroom. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The location is slightly remote, but then most places on the islands are.

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
