My wife and I stayed at the Riverside Guest House having arrived on the ferry from Stornaway. Our room was comfortable and very clean. My only criticism (a minor one) was that the water pressure on the shower was poor. We walked down to the harbour which is only 5-10 minutes away. Breakfast was excellent.

I would without a doubt stop here again and I am rather fussy about where I stay, the hotel owner Charlie came across has a friendly professional... More

Breakfast was the best I had on a 7 day trip in Scotland, staying in 7 different Hotels whilst doing the NC500. The owner / manager was a very accommodating / knowledgeable... More

Room was perfect, bed very comfortable and the decor recent and very clean. Bathroom also looked to have been recently refurbished and was spotless. Conveniently situated with free parking outside and an easy 5 minute stroll to the pubs and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again if we are passing through.

Cant fault this small family run B&B. Rooms were perfect, breakfast was served with a smile and the owner on check out was very pleasant to talk to. Excellent location with good parking and very close to the ferry terminal.
