Cracking location, friendly place, nice food. On the night we were there students from the UHI Music College in Benbecula held a jam session in the bar which was fun to witness and made for a great atmosphere. There's not much else nearby in terms of places to stay or eat, the Lochboisdale has not allowed this to lower their... More

It was like stepping back in time but never the less quite charming. We managed a hotel in the seventies and here we were in this time warp. The staff were most helpful and cheerful, the food was good both at dinner and breakfast. Very comfortable clean bed and our dog made welcome too. We enjoyed our stay and would... More

Lochboisdale itself is set in beautiful scenery. The once grand Lochboisdale Hotel is in desperate need of heavy investment. However, from what I saw the volume of tourists (although there was a steady stream when we visited) wouldn't be able to sustain the kind of investment needed to restore this building to its former grandeur. The room I stayed in... More

We stayed here for one night, whilst travelling to see friends on North Uist. A late ferry arrival meant that an onward travel was not really an option. The room was clean and very spacious, if somewhat dated. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The location is ideal for travel, litterally overlooking the ferry... More

I have read some of the other comments, which is why I am reviewing. This type of family run hotel is part and the heart of the local island community. I hope this hotel will continue to welcome locals & guests in another 100 years ! - (see photos in local museum) We enjoyed our stay in a cosy room... More

After reading some of the reviews here I wonder what people expect. Yes, the building is a wee bit shabby in places but frankly this only adds to the charm. It's a well-used, well- loved and warm, welcoming building in a great location. It's definitely not a bland lodge type chain. So if you're expecting a kind of corporate polish... More

I stayed here for one night, the hotel itself is in a fantastic location, literally next to the ferry terminal. Friendly staff in the bar, reception and breakfast room. My single room had a nice view down the loch and was comfortable. Breakfast was nice and was served in the conservatory but as I arrived late off the ferry, I... More

Enjoyed a very relaxing time at the Lochboisdale Hotel where the staff are very pleasant and the food excellent. Comfortable, spacious room with bathroom en suite. Perfectly located to explore the isle's of Eriskay, South Uist, Benbecula and North Uist without further use of ferries. Regular bus service between Eriskay in the south and Berneray the north. Would recommend.
