We needed dinner at short notice, the staff were helpful and the food good...I suggest you book though, this has a monopoly of anything decent in Lochmaddy. We stayed in Berneray at the Sealview B & B, it's a fair drive to get here but it's worth the effort.

Good location for visiting South Uist and Benbecula. Friendly staff. Great dinner and breakfast which was made to order from quality products. Rooms were comfortable and clean with a good selection of beverages and quality products in the bathroom. Free wifi but a little slow.

After our unsettling time in Berneray, this came as a welcome relief. A great room in a quiet location, with good security to match. In addition, it was good to have a spotlessly clean room. Staff were friendly, helpful, and the breakfasts were really good. No air of menace here! Will return.

I stayed here as part of an island hopping trip through the Hebridies. The staff were really nice and friendly and only too happy to feed you with information about North Uist. The room I stayed in was spotlessly clean, fresh and ultra modern. The bed was massive for a single room and the room itself was huge with lots... More

We had difficulty finding accommodation in N Uist and were happy to get a room here for our first night. Staff were very friendly and helpful, nice good sized room, very comfortable. Enjoyed a nice dinner in the hotel as well as a delicious breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We couldn't get a room here and had to stay in a B&B nearby (see my review for Old Courthouse B&B). Our B&B was so awful that having dined here we decided to return for breakfast the next morning. Dinner was tasty, home-cooked, fresh food that was well presented and all at a reasonable price. But it was the service... More

We had one of the b st meals I can recall of in the UK. The lamb shank was superb, the skate succulent and the normally mundane sticky toffee pudding a delight. Better Han its sister restaurant at Langass Lodge where we stayed. World class in a very remote part of the world.

We stayed in a B&B in Lochmaddy for 3 nights and had two very good meals at the Hamersay House. Excellent service. Good menu. Good food. There are not many good restaurants around in North Uist but Hamersay is the best that we could find for good local produce.

My mother and I stayed at the Hamersay House for two nights during a tour of the Hebbrides with Rabbie's last autumn. We had a lovely stay. The hotel rooms and common areas are well appointed, clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and answered any questions we had about the hotel and local area. We had lovely breakfasts and...

I really wanted to say something about this memorable pleasant stay, superb food from the Chef, and so helpful staff, who tracked me with messages to solve me getting a roof ! A definite lighthouse for travelers, no fuss, simple, quite, warm and friendly, I felt so rested after these nights...
