We stayed at Langass Lodge, the sister property to Hamersay House, and went to this restaurant one night. The room is beautifully designed and the staff was incredibly friendly. They offered to create something special off the menu, which is always a treat. A wonderful meal!

We ate here one night when staying nearby. The crab claw starter was superb and the helping was very substantial. The rack of lamb was small and overcooked. The sauce on the salmon fillet and the vegetables were disappointing. The choice of ice creams was boring - the 3 scoops were plainly served.

Stayed for one night during a tour of the Hebrides. A very comfortable room with a safe location opposite the police station!! Staff were very helpful on reception and doubled up serving meals. Good breakfast and in a quiet part of the world. Wi-Fi was OK and the bar are welcoming.

We stumbled across this hotel whilst travelling around Outer Hebrides and stayed just one night sadly as would love to have stayed longer. Nicely decorated with a tasteful nautical theme throughout. Gym, sauna and steam room available although we didn't get time to use them. Dinner in the restaurant was also good with a good choice on the menu. The... More

We only had dinner at the hotel but it was good. A nice and clean modern restaurant with good mix of customers, very good food (but slightly pricey) and service. Friendly. Convenient for the ferry terminal.

stayed 1 night on business, hotel very modern and exceeded my expectations of hotels in the highlands, others have raved about the food, I stayed on a Friday night and the menu was ok. I expected more seafood. The starter was good (mixed seafood) steak was ok, house wine perfectly acceptable only other main course of seafood was fish and... More

We stayed at Hamersay House during our tour of the Outer Hebrides. Modern hotel in Lochmaddy, the only disappointment really was the location. I had expected at least a couple of views but it felt more like it was in a housing estate with the police station over the road! We had a nice room, well furnished, bathroom which was... More

Arrived late in the evening from a delayed ferry, made to feel welcome and if we had needed food assured that something would be available. Good breakfast choices and dinner menu, well prepared and presented meals. Comfortable room with plenty of space.

Not a great deal of choice of decent hotels in the Hebrides, but we definitely struck lucky with Hamersay House. Fairly expensive for these parts, but the room was comfortable enough, with a decently apportioned bathroom, although the promised WI-Fi didn't stretch much beyond reception. The staff we're very friendly, but the real highlight was the restaurant. Smallish menu (with... More

This hotel is modern we were warmly welcomed and shown to our room for our two night stay, the room was pleasant and well furnished with a king sized bed, television was a bit on the small side as was the bathroom but it had all the usual toiletries and was very clean. Downstairs was again modern with a nice... More
