We stayed here for a few days at Easter when visiting family on the island. It was a perfect base for us. The location is great, lots of lovely beaches nearby and there's a wee shop next to it. The bungalow was clean and comfortable and the owners had thought of everything. There were games for the kids, Wi-Fi, ironing board, bucked and spade you name it, it was all there. We would definitely return.
Borve bungalow is trully perfect - modern, very clean, well equipped and, most important, cosy and warm. We spent there five days and felt like at home. Didn't want to leave.
Location is quite convenient. Town, beautiful beaches and other attractions in close driving distance.
We are planning to stay at Borve bungalow during our next trip in summer.
We will definitely recommend this place.
Borve Bungalow was ideal for our first visit to the Western Isles. It was spotlessly clean and really well appointed and was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. We had our 10 month old puppy with is and there was plenty of space around for him to explore. We met several of the neighbours who made us feel very welcome.
As we did a lot of cooking, the kitchen was particularly good (once we cracked how to use the cooker - bit clever for its own good!! Everything else worked perfectly and the fast broadband made a big difference. Central Heating made some interesting noises at times!!
If you come here suggest reading Peter May's Lewis Trilogy whilst you're here - really quite spooky to see some of the locations. Beaches were fabulous - Port of Ness best nearby for dogs as no sheep, but Tolsta, Luskentyre, and Uig all fantastic.
Borve House Hotel only a short walk away. Got some mixed reviews but we ate there a couple of times and were well impressed.
Would love to go back sometime and would highly recommend staying in Borve Bungalow.
The cottage was very well appointed, easy to find and very clean. It was a good place to be based to visit the many amazing historical sites around the Isle of Lewis. With a nearby sports complex, with small swimming pool and even a ten pin bowling alley, plus a wonderful beach side play park the kids were kept amused in the evenings. The beaches around were excellent, and the landscape stunning.
Just back from a week in this gorgeous part of the world. The house is perfect with everything you need for a brilliant stay on this beautiful island. Everything catered for and spotless. Fantastic base to explore the island being not too far from Stornoway and next door to a hotel/pub with a small grocers just on your doorstep. Can't wait to return. Thanks so much
The bungalow is fantastic base to explore this stunning island. Minutes from a number of pristine beaches that will feel like your own personal retreat and less than half an hour from the main town of Stornaway. We enjoyed days exploring or having fun on the beach followed by meals in a relaxing and modern kitchen and family game nights in a comfortable living area. The new bathroom is also fitted with an amazing shower - as someone who is 6'5", I can tell you that finding a somewhere to stay with a shower I don't have to crouch under is a joy!
Borve Bungalow was an excellent place to stay, modern and very comfortable. Very well equipped. Great location too. Would love to come back!
