“Fantastic home cooked bar food - an oasis!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Stopped in at 2.10pm on a Friday for lunch. Lovely modern bar area. Extensive and varied menu including separate children's menu. Staff very friendly and efficient. Lovely food all round - including homemade chips and pies. Kids loved the outside play area and their knickerbocker ice creams. Reasonably priced bill too. Not many options for food in this area of Lewis and the Borve Country House Hotel wins hands down.

We went to Borve House Hotel for lunch today. The meal was fantastic and the staff were very helpful with our 7 month old son.
It was our first ever visit and the food was so fresh, we were five (plus one) and each meal was delicious.
The facilities were without exception, very clean and the price £8.95 for two huge courses is very reasonable.
We are not local so it will be a while before we are back, however, back we will be.
I would throughly recommend this restaurant.

We stayed here for 2 nights in September. Lovely room and spacious bathroom. Sadly the towel rail was not hot, but the staff tried their best to get a plumber - probably just an air lock. All beautifully fitted out. The location was my reason for choosing this hotel - away form the hustle and bustloe of Stornoway. It was quiet and would have benefitted fropm more guests. It really wasn't far from anywhere and the roads on Lewis are generally straight and not as narrow as further south. The food was excellent but probably more bar food than restaurant in design. Portions were very generous!! Breakfast also good but no buffet, although there was a lot of choice on the menu. The staff were always helpful.

On arival we were pleased to be offered an upgrade into one of the hotels cottages. This was very much appreciated as the rooms were superb. On our second night the hotel had no other guests and the lovely chef came in to cook just for us. Cant fault this hotel for being friendly and comfortable.

Room Tip: Include a sunday in your stay which is generally very quiet and you may get an upgrade to the cottag...

We returned to the Borve country House Hotel this evening and we were not disappointed. The menu had changed since the last tiume I was there and I had scallops wrapped in parma ham on top of black pudding for my starter. My other half had duck wrapped in something, sorruy I forgot to ask him what it was but I had a taste and it was lovely too.
I do notice there is a little bit of a wait but when the food is prepared like it is it really is only to be expected.
We had a lovely meal a great experience with friendly helpful staff and we will continue to go there.
Oh we also discussed the possibility of having a part of our wedding there, but that is just a discussion for now.

This is our second stay here and the rooms are superb. We got one of the cottages this time and it was lovely.

The restaurant side has room for improvement. The staff in the dining room are young but trying their best. The food has great potential, the starter prawn cocktail was great and the Thai green curry very good but as previous reviews have mentioned, you don't want to be in a rush. A limited breakfast menu, but very good (a special mention for the home made potato scones!). We have booked again for next year.

Stayed here in one of the self catering style lodges to attend a family wedding and were blown away by the standard of our accommodation and the hotel itself. The staff could be called on to assist with anything and the food was excellent. This was a fabulous venue for a wedding too, again the staff were very attentive and the food was superb.
