Location location location !!! What a fabulous place to stay. I don't think the website photos and description do this place justice. It is totally equipped with all the comforts of home. It used to be a B + B so all the bedrooms are ensuite. The views from both the upstairs and downstairs balconies are superb. It is also... More

Basically agree with Becky Twigs review - not much to add. Very expensive for an average B and B with a limited breakfast. There are not many places to stay in the area so the owner can pretty well charge what he wants.

We stayed in 'St.Kilda' Room which has views of the car park, for 3 nights during a trip of the Outer Hebrides and Isle of Skye. The host 'Farky' greeted us with a warm welcome, he is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, for recommendations for eating out and local attractions. The guest house has a very 'homely' feel... More

Very nice B&B, room was spotless, fluffy towels and we were given a very warm welcome. Great location for our cycling, just a two minute cycle from the ferry. The owner gave us a lift to the local restaurant which was very kind, and much appreciated after a long day on the bikes! Slightly over priced in my opinion. Food... More

Great hotel in the countryside of Lewis & Harris. Very scenic drive out to the hotel and peaceful little town surrounding it. Room was very comfortable and the hosts was friendly. We left too early for breakfast (had to catch the ferry back). Also, no joke, the towels were extremely pleasant.

Based on their website we were prepared to be impressed. The first impression on entering was a hall cluttered with cardboard boxes and a vacuum cleaner. We were given an attic room on the first floor with the most compact ensuite with shower we have ever seen. . No room to hang bath towels which had to go on a... More

We stayed here for a few nights last year as a base for our trip from Leverbugh to St Kilda. Grimisdale was a good place to stay, very comfortable, friendly host, good breakfast and in a convenient position, not far from the ferry from Berneray. It was possible to walk to the pier and also to the Anchorage restaurant at... More
