Shower main switch in bedroom and need to remember to switch it on or you will not have a shower. There is no lift, and stairs are a little tricky to navigate... More

Stayed Wednesday, ferry problems meant another night was needed. Staff were excellent, made sure we didn't need to change rooms and gave us a reduced rate because of our very early departure. Bar staff and waiting staff all lovely. Had dinner two nights, food excellent and value for money. Nothing seemed a problem. Will be back.

This hotel is one of four on the island and is one of the better choices. Reception staff were pleasant, the room was basic but clean and very comfortable. However, my room (5) was above the kitchen and as a result whilst the kitchen was operating, the room was very noisy. The hallway was also in need of some love... More

...then don't go to the Craigard - food overcooked, very basic and processed. Staff unapologetic and disinterested. Overall poor dining experience - only compensation was spectacular view across the bay.

stayed here on final night of our trips round the Hebrides. Very disappointed, room 5 was very small, very tired, not as clean as I would expect for the price paid. The sink was next to my bed as the bathroom was too small. We were booked on the first ferry which is very early but known to the staff,... More
