I've been coming to N Uist for years and had never stayed at the Hamersay House (previously Tigh Dearg) until July this year (yes- a bit late with this review). I am delighted that we did and it was great that we stayed here with my parents on their first visit to the islands. The Staff were friendly and went... More

We were fortunate to have the last room which was designed for those with impairments....so not a typical stay. We were pleased to have the accommodation and enjoy the excellent service, food and enthusiasm of the staff. We had a great day out with Steve Duffield of Western Isles Wilkdlife Tours and would highly recoimmend anyone with an interest in... More

Recently refurbished and renamed (Hammersley House Hotel). Sister to the rather plush Langass Lodge further south, which means that if you pick the right night and they're chef-sharing, the food is excellent... as it was on our visit. Large, well-appointed rooms. Described by staff as 'boutique-y', which may be the case in Lochmaddy, but nothing special for the price which,... More

This is a great wee hotel in Lochmaddy. The lady on reception was lovely, very friendly and very helpful giving us loads of info on the local area. The rooms were large and clean, the beds were huge and comfy. The best part of the stay was dinner, we shared the seafood platter for a started, it was yumtastic! But... More

Through a change in timing of ferry routes, we had to stay a night here at short notice. In phoning twice, we were quoted incorrect (and overpriced) rates. On arrival, the "receptionist" was more intent on finishing her dinner than greeting or welcoming new guests. This hotel is like a Travelodge, BUT in a wonderful island. In fairness, rooms are...

We arrived here after a problem at a local B&B left us with no room for the night, and wondering if we'd have to take the afternoon ferry back to Skye. We were warmly greeted, although at first they didn't think there were any rooms available. Fortunately, there had just been 2 cancellations. The rooms were good, clean and comfortable.... More

On arriving and entering a vast empty space we were shown our room on the ground floor next to gymnasium, on entering the bathroom I noticed it was for disabled use. Why, I asked reception have we been given a disabled room when we are obviously not ? Thats the room you have been allocated was the reply. Obviously my... More

The Tigh Dearg Hotel is now called the Hammersley Hotel which made it difficult to find! It has recently been refurbished and the bedrooms were nicely done. The food was also very good. BUT reception is utilitarian and underwhelming; we had to ask for a wifi code; and dinner was served rather late. A good choice for an overnight only.

First time in North Uist and recommended this hotel to stay two nights. The hotel had just been taken over, but you wouldn't know it. The rooms were beautiful with the biggest bed we have ever slept on! They were very clean and comfortable with great views for the windows. The meals we had in the hotel(one dinner and two... More

A friend and I were stuck overnight in North Uist last week (without any overnight stuff at all) and found accommodation at the Hamersay House (formerly Tigh Dearg) Hotel. My room (5 which I notice has been criticised by a previous occupant) was faultless: quiet - there were people next door - clean, spacious, well appointed and with very high... More
