We were on a yacht and had booked for 5 to eat at the Loch Boisdale a couple of months before we arrived, I had specifically asked for a table in their conservatory overlooking the harbour. On our arrival we were placed on a small table in the bar with insufficient space for 5, despite mentioning our booking and asking... More

We visited last year and was placed in rooms that were let's say, in need of some TLC, as was the whole place in general. The food left a little to be desired also. So this year, when we returned to South Uist we decided to give the Lochboisdale Hotel another chance and I was glad we did. The allocated... More

Was okay, overall. The room was quite nice, though a fresh coat of paint and wallpaper wouldn't have done any harm. Dinners were quite good, and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. It's not perhaps the most efficiently run of places, and don't rely on quick service if you have a tight ferry connection. But, we have stayed... More

Stayed one night with friends whilst on a cycling weekend. Hotel was a bit rough round the edges, i.e. needs some TLC, The rooms were fine although only able to take a bath as very short shower lead only really capable of hair rinsing. Watched a game of football in bar that was a bit run down and language colourful.... More

Location to the ferry terminal at Lochboisdale was excellent. After making the five and a quarter hour crossing from Oban and docking at ten to nine at night the last thing anyone wants is to continue travelling! Down the ramp at the ferry and turn right into the hotel carpark, THAT EASY!!! Although maybe a bit tired looking on the... More

We chose to stay here because I had eaten in the hotel several times and had always been pleased with the quality of the food even though the exterior of the place is very run down, my partner & myself chose the same starter and main course, the starter was on the menu as "garlic chicken strips" but was actually...

Drive off the ferry and turn into the hotel carpark. Lovely old hotel in keeping with the setting. Room 8 had a view to the ferry. Spacious, clean room. Clean and comfortable beds. Plentiful tea/coffee/biscuits and toiletries.. Warm and welcoming dining room with good hot food. Plentiful breakfast in a light, bright breakfast room. We were lucky to be there... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on 2nd July. The room was huge and we had a great view over the approaches to the harbour. Everything in the room worked. The bar is fun and we had a fine evening there. The breakfast is hearty and well worth the calories. The ferry terminal is right next door and... More

Stopped over one night before catching the ferry next morning. Visually, the first impressions of the place were not good to be honest, the exterior in particular is looking tatty and needs a fresh coat of paint. Our room was also in need of a refurb, wallpaper looking tired and while the bathroom was clean, the shower was handheld over... More

The hotel was a little run down but this was far outweighed but the warm clean comfortable rooms we were great with a smile and this continued for the whole of our stay. We ate in the restaurant. The food was lovely and very very tasty. We were traveling with another couple and they had put us together for our... More
