There is no separate tripadvisor review for the restaurant at Hamersey House and so the review is of the hotel - which I started drafting as a four star - comfortable simple room, no great charm - but absolutely ok. Staff very helpful and friendly. But on the first night I realised the food was an absolute cut above, on... More

I thought long and hard about whether to give Hamersay a "3" or a "4". On balance I've gone for "average". Good things; helpful reception and bar staff. Nice big bedroom. Very comfortable bed. Evening meal of good quality. Breakfast perfectly acceptable. Bad things; Evening meal quite pricey and choice of menu limited. Bathroom in desperate need of modernisation, given... More

Fantastic place to stay in Lochmaddy, North Uist. Great rooms, big, spacious and with lovely decor. Totally delicious dinner , one of the best I've had in ages. And completely brilliant staff who looked after us so well - Abi, Jackie, Effieanne. Can't wait to come back for longer.

We had heard that the restaurant was under new ownership and served quality food. We appreciate quality over quantity....however this was eye watering. Gluten free starter scallop minus black-pudding = one small scallop accompanied by cream sauce and a chopped mushroom. £8.95. Good steak, requested rare- medium, more on the medium side accompanied by chips and red cabbage of acceptable... More

Visited the hotel for supper on 16/5/15, now that the hotel has reopened after winter closure. Lovely to see familiar,friendly welcoming staff. Menu all sounded delicious and looking around the room, everyone appeared to be enjoying their choices. We thoroughly enjoyed all three courses especially the langoustines and sole. Service was friendly and efficient without being intrusive. Nice atmosphere both... More

Called in for coffee on a bleak and blustery day and was made to feel so welcome. By the time we left the lovely young lady had sold the area and staying at the hotel to us, so we may well return. On a holiday when we received indifferent service in most places it was rather refreshing to meet someone... More

There's a lot to like about Hamersay House: - very friendly staff - mostly in good condition and felt new, with one important exception (see below) - absolutely superb food, including well done vegetarian options and good cooked breakfasts The one thing that let the hotel down was in our room (room 6). We woke up on the first morning... More

Just home after an 'enforced' stay here after my ferry was cancelled due to bad weather. Came upon Hamersay House by chance and what a find. The staff were lovely and so helpful, the rooms well equipped, even an iron and ironing board discreetly tucked away in a cupboard. Lovely toiletries were supplied with fluffy thick towels and even a... More

This is the old Taigh Dearg hotel and this is the first time I stayed there since it changed hands. The hotel is close to the ferry terminal at Lochmaddy and is modern, and is beautifully decorated. Check in was quick from a reception that is just inside the main door. I had a main course and dessert in the... More

We couldn't miss this hotel in Lochmaddy – it's the only big bright blue building. Under new management for about a year, it is a very good spot to stay. We enjoyed our visit. We had a large, well appointed room and ensuite on the first floor that could not be faulted. Very comfortable. Breakfast was in the main dining... More
