Our room and the view were amazing! Ideally located as super close to the airport and the W5 bus stops nearby. Such welcoming owners who helped us with info so much. Top notch breakfast, whole place was spotless! Couldn't ask for anything more. Thanks so much!

We had a two day break in Stornoway and had booked Solas on the 2nd night, on arriving we instantly wished we had booked it for both nights. We received a warm welcome from Karen and Iain and were shown to our first floor room by Karen, the room was stunning with access to a seated veranda with fantastic views... More

Ian and Karen, the owners were lovely and fantastic hosts. The house was stunning, the room with the balcony and stunning views was fantastic, really impressed with the hidden ensuite,... More

We have been travelling to the UK over many years and stayed in all sorts of nice B&B. But Solas has topped them all, it's such an amazing place to stay, Karen and Iain are extremely nice and welcoming hosts, you immediately feel like home, being a good friend or even a member of the family. The house is impeccable,... More

What a wonderful place to stay the night (and longer if we could have done). Ian and Karen were perfect hosts making us feel like friends (rather than first night guests) right from the start. Everything was first class from the room with great views, excellent amenities and a very comfortable bed to the house itself, the great kitchen and... More

The most beautiful B&B that I have ever seen. The hosts Ian and Karen are very friendly and hospitable. We can highly recommend this place! PS: It is very popular and often booked out. If available, we would recommend to book two or more nights.

We arrived late on the last ferry to Lewis and our host, Ian, greeted us at the door and immediately began to care for us. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a glorious view of the beach. Breakfasts were large and delicious. I can highly recommend Solas House and would gladly return.
