Stayed here recently on business. Clean, tidy, Nordic influences, this hotel was comfortable, food was good and the rooms well appointed. If you ever have to choose between the Dark Island hotel and this one - this is the winner by a country mile. My only concern was the attitude of the staff member at breakfast which could have been... More

A two night stay organised by McKinlay Kidd, and up to the high standard we expect from them. Staff were well trained, efficient, and friendly and also had time to talk about their lives on the island, and places which we should visit. Spotless, great menus and food to match - breakfast porridge was served with blackberries, raspberries and blue... More

Went for a birthday celebration meal with friends. The food was excellent, We all enjoyed the different meals we were served. Best steak I have eaten in a very long time. The food was served hot and service was excellent. Will definitely return.

We arrived late at night to a VERY warm welcome. The staff were very friendly, the room comfortable. There was a very good selection of food for breakfast, the porridge was really good great. The food in the evening excellant - a bit cheaper than Langass but just as good. Were happy to provide fresh milk for tea in room.

A wonderful place to stay. Tasteful, elegant, clean with helpful and considerate staff. The restaurant is described as bistro style and is definitely fine dining with homemade food, locally sourced and beautifully presented. Booking is almost essential as it's reputation grows and spreads. A gem in a beautiful wild island.

The rooms were very comfortable and cosy, with everything you needed. The food was plentiful and tasty. The only criticism is that the service did not live up to the image that the hotel was trying to portray itself as. This was only a minor issue however, as the overall impression we received was very good indeed.

We didn't stay here, just ate in the bar but the bar was very cosy, staff friendly and food excellent. They have the most reasonably priced wine list I've seen on the islands so far and their house malbec was great. A nice short menu encompassing fresh local ingredients cooked to perfection.

Not cheap, and almost perfect but not quite. From booking to check-in and throughout the evening that the 6 of us spent at Hamersay House we had excellent and friendly service. Cycles safely stowed behind the hotel, check-in was quick and straightforward. The rooms were large and clean with comfortable bed, good sized en-suite showers with top of the range... More

Fantastic stay here. Room superb with lovely view. Great toiletries and facilities. Dinner very good indeed, with wide choice and beautifully cooked. Service very good. Great all round - as simple as that. One not to miss.
