Having read the glowing reports on trip advisor we were extremely disappointed with this hotel, on our three week holiday of Scotland, this place was definitely the worst. The food was very average, at breakfast an overcooked kipper fillet was returned to the kitchen, no one came to question the reasoning for this and no alternative was offered. When we... More

Isn't it interesting that disgruntled clients invariably resort to the old 'Fawlty Towers' jibe when they want to have a dig. Hardly original but definitely meant to be damaging. One has to wonder where the 'glowing reports came from. Hazel and her partner appeared to be a fairly affable couple even when i discussed the the kipper with him. This... More

We stayed at this small, friendly hotel for two nights. We were given a very comfortable room with a huge bed and nice outlook. The view from the dining room is lovely and the food - breakfast and dinner - even better. The owners were welcoming and attentive but not overbearing. Good choices on the menu including a range of... More

We arrived with our fully loaded bikes on a Sunday afternoon having walked and cycled for the best part of 30 miles in the teeth of a severe gale with winds gusting 58mph - a bit of an achievement - to an unfriendly welcome from the owner. This was followed by a more affable tour of the premises and our... More

Booked for 2 nights and stayed for 1 because ferry was cancelled on the first day! By far the best thing about this hotel/Inn is the food. We had an evening meal and breakfast and both were outstanding! The seafood platter was the best we had in the whole of our trip round the Western Isles. Bedroom was totally fine.... More

Stayed for three nights & made very welcome. Fantastic breakfasts, with a huge selection of fresh fruit & the most enormous full cooked breakfast, comprising bacon, two types of sausage, grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, fried bread, baked beans, sauteed potatoes, black pudding & white pudding, with a choice of eggs. For the less gluttonous the kippers were delicious, & there... More

Stayed here for one night. I cannot do anything other than praise the friendliness of the owners. Room immaculately clean. Breakfast great. Dinner freshly cooked using local seafood but, having followed previous guests' recommendation of the paella was disappointed by it - it took me so long to extract the flesh from the multitude of claws that the rice cooled....

The proprietors go out of their way to make this a very enjoyable stay. The food is absolutely wonderful and the service fantastic. In fact everything was so great that we returned on our way back from Barra. Rooms 3,4 have private decks with incredible views. Rooms are great with large modern bathrooms.

We first visited the Orasay Inn 12 years ago and were impressed by the food accommodation and the proprietors. This has not changed. We had one of the deluxe rooms that has a private decked area and the en - suite is a wet room suitable for ambulatory disabled. The beds are very comfortable. The food is fantastic and where...

Visited here with friends for dinner. Food was completely overcooked, mushy, tasteless, chips, soggy and burnt. There was no atmosphere. No other diners, place empty. Not cheap. Don't bother making the long trip here. Rather grumpy service.

What says a lot, re the empty restaurant is that this diner along with her friends did not sit down for dinner until 55 minutes after their booked time. Everyone else had left the restaurant well before this time. I would add that during the high season we never have an empty restaurant. The reviewer's friends were a couple staying... More

We visited last year for dinner with friends and were so impressed by the wonderful cooking and seafood, that we had to return. The seafood soup is simply the best and is full of the shellfish to be found around the island. We were made extremely welcome and will be back next year.
