“Nice experience with friendly staff and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Nice conservatory restaurant fully reserved and although lounge bar looked good, we decided to eat outside. Very friendly staff. Good range on menu and specials board. Our main courses of baked cod and monkfish were really nice. Watched Oban ferry arrive as we ate. Nice experience all told.

“Huge Portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

On the recommendation of the owner of the B&B we were staying in, we had dinner in this hotel during our stay on South Uist.

The portions were huge and piping hot when they arrived. Beef olives stuffed with black pudding served with mash and onion gravy for me and chicken stuffed with haggis served with a whiskey sauce and veggies for hubby. Add in a few glasses of wine and a couple of glasses of coke and our bill came to under £40. Great value for money!

“Warm welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We stayed in this hotel last year and the bed was not the best. We requested a soft one this year and got it. It must be very difficult to run a hotel in the Hebrides and make it pay with such a short season. It's a big hotel and needs constant upgrading.
The food is really good.
We had to be up early to catch the ferry and Michael was there to give us a call at 06.30 and Amy
(studying to be a nurse) offered scrambled eggs.
The hotel gave us the best reception we received in the Hebrides.

“Excellent place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

In B&B's whilst Island Hopping - came a toss the hotel whilst having a drive round trying yo find a place for lunch. Although not the Ritz the welcome we received could not be faulted. We enjoyed our lunch so much we went back for dinner. Again the waitresses were very welcoming and polite. Although service was slow the food was with waiting for. Not blaming the waitress for slow service - the place was packed. Would defiantly recommend. Good menu - we had the duck. It was the best I had tasted for a while.
