Really friendly and kind couple. They help us to find a car to rent and show us very nice places to go on Lewis and Harris isles. The room was cosy and warm, perfect for this dessin. The breakfast was delicious as well. Perfect place to take the ferry, less than 3 minutes walk. I definitely want to go back...

Wonderful view of the harbour from our room. The farry left from just outside but even though the cars went past early in the morning there was no noise. We had a family froom for 4, it was cosy, clean and we had just enough room. Comfy down duvets for the adult bed. Lovely service and nice breakfast!

Great rooms, the hosts were kind and extremely helpful with planning, and delicious breakfast. They even helped us with laundry. Couldn't believe that we were able to find such a great B and B! Highly recommended!

Stayed 2 nights as we were visiting family close by. Received a warm welcome from Ali who showed us to our room. The room was very comfortable and welcoming. We had a great view over towards the ferry and out to the small private boats, very relaxing. The b&b cater for allergens and they do it extremely well. The selection...

My wife and I stayed here for the first 3 nights of a 2 week honeymoon throughout Scotland. We absolutely loved it. The owners were extremely nice and took care of any concern we had.

We stayed for two nights in this B and B and whilst the owners were nice enough and the breakfasts were very good, the room was very basic. There was a bulb out in the bedroom and one out in the bathroom. The extractor fan in the ensuite didn't work at all which isn't good considering it opens onto the...

I had a lovely room with beautiful views over the bay (didn't see the seal that is was apparently swimming around though). The highlight for me was the lovely owners who were very friendly and provided the most amazing gluten free breakfasts, and encouraged me to try out the other delicious gluten free baking.

Spent two nights in this excellent guest house which is situated on the sea-front, two minutes walk from the ferry terminal, and we were royally treated by the very welcoming and hospitable couple who own and run the place. The room on the front was very nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, tasty and plentiful.

I went to the Isle of Lewis and Harris with my dad and brother. We stayed in this lovely B&B and I'm glad that we did. Our flight arrived at around 8 in the morning and we turned up at the B&B at around 9ish. Too early to check in but then we didn't expect to. The owner was only...
