Our hotel in Stornoway was unable to serve us food unless we locked our dog in our room or car - which we chose not to do - and in any case does not serve food on Sundays. It was with relief and delight that, having found the Doune Braes Hotel via the web, I confirmed on enquiring that they... More

The hotel is situated about 10 mins away from Callenaish and 5 mins from Carloway Broch. There is a good sized car park and reasonable wifi. My room was decent enough and clean, nice views over the water. Breakfast was nice, a mix of self service and menu. The staff were all helpful and pleasant and the price was average... More

Visited here for dinner. Inside of the hotel looked fine. Staff were attentive and polite. We ordered two main courses, which were cooked very quickly. First main of fish and chips was tasty, however, I suspect the fish was frozen not fresh. Second main course was miserly. For instance, the chicken was accompanied by a lonely looking veg selection (I.e.... More

I flew into Stornoway and drove to this hotel on a Sunday because I knew most places would not be open on the Hebrides on a Sunday. It was the perfect location between Stornoway and Harris (where I would be staying for 2 nights). And..the restaurant is open on Sunday! :-) It is easy to find. The property has some... More

We called here for lunch and were welcomed in the bar along with our dog. Excellent home made burger and chips - great value, friendly locals happy to chat. The dog was paid a great deal of attention - which she loved. I can't comment on the accommodation as we only called for lunch.

Arrived here on a cycling trip - frenzied midge attack had caused abandonment of camping plans (apparently 2016 has been a particularly bad year for that!). Got in late, leaving early, hadn't budgeted for an unexpected hotel bill, but the lovely staff gave us the last room at a really terrific rate on condition we spent at the bar. My... More

Basically the wait to order is far too long, the wait for food is not to bad because it is freshly cooked, however 3.5 hours for a three course meal is a bit much considering we were probably only eating for 30-40 minutes of it. However Very good food and nice rooms. However some beds are tucked extremely close to... More

We were made very welcome by the staff - everyone was very friendly & obliging. The hotel was a little tired & shabby in parts, but clean & comfortable. The food was very good - I particularly liked the roast pork - just delicious & very tender. Good-sized portions too. Breakfasts were tasty with refills of drinks & toast, &... More

Very nice well appointed rooms. Quite homely. Comfortable bed; all beautifully clean. The food in the restaurant is absolutely superb I'd thoroughly recommend it!! At £78 a night it's not budget, but it dor deliver.

Visited here with my family in June. Food was delicious, great menu choice and reasonable priced. Vegetable Risotto was amazing as was my Pine nut tart?? For dessert. Portions were a good size. Lovely to sit and look over the Loch, lovely chilled out experience. Service was good, couldn't fault it.
