Fantastic b&b, friendly and feels like home, couldn't ask for better, so relaxing, highly recommended. Been going here for 5 years now wouldn't stay anywhere else. Ideal location for traveling around the islands.

I have been going to The Borve Guest House for about 5 years and would highly recommend this place to anyone. The location is great for beach walks and food and drink. There are shops in either direction. The hosts are top quality too Gretta and Calum have made every visit interesting and their knowledge helps immensely when planning a... More

I stayed for four nights in February. Really lovely cosy accommodation. Made to feel so welcome and felt at home. The accommodation is spotlessly clean. The most wonderful breakfasts. I would recommend Borve Guest House. If you want a really relaxing homely Bed & Breakfast. You cannot get better than this.

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
