Welcome stop over on a cycle trip around the Hebrides with my brother. Appears to have enjoyed better days as a salmon fishing hotel but hanging in well enough. Staff were friendly and the the en-suite twin room, which was spacious and clean, had one of the longest baths I have come across. Evening meal included a deep fried black... More

I booked a table for dinner during a visit because evening eating places are few and far between in this area. The table was booked several weeks in advance over the 'phone (and confirmed) so I didn't expect any problems. However on arrival at the appointed hour I was told by the (unsymathetic) bar man that the restaurant was not... More

Yes, the service was generally very willing and helpful from very pleasant staff. However, the response from the owner to another comment I have read is in the same vein as those she gave to me, when I had handed my written concerns to her - almost aggressively unapologetic, with hardly an ounce of understanding for customer concerns. The simple... More

Stopped by for coffee and also meal in the evening. Scottish hospitality at its best. We ate in the dining room, and as such were invited to use the residents` lounge for our aperitifs. Very good meal. Every choice of whisky. Happy experience, thank you.

The room was very dated, stained carpet, no shower and the walls needed to be repainted but we had a lovely view of the sea. The room was actually quite big and if it was redecorated would've been great. I could hear people talking and coughing in a neighbouring room but it wasn't as bad as the paper thin walls... More

Our stay at the Lochmadddy was great! Very friendly welcome and room just fine. The bar and restaurant had a lively vibe and food was excellent. Very good value for money. Would definitely stay again. A great choice before or after the ferry!

On arrival, we found that most rooms had no heating and that the towel rails would not switch on. The windows on the windward side howled in strong winds because the sealing needed replacing. The towel rail was switched on by next day and the heating was on 2 days later after nagging the owner. The room was tired with... More

I would just like to respond to the above review. With regards to the heating not being on, I'm sure at this time of the year, in your own home, you do not have the heating on full blast 24 hours a day. it does go off for a while during the day. Also, re the WIFI - this is... More

This is not a top-quality hotel, but it is not pretending to be one. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very basic but the prices are sensible. The service is straightforward and friendly. We had a very good meal in the Anglers' Dining Room. The menu had a very good range of choices. The quality and quantity was good. The cooked... More
