“Glorious Isle of Lewis”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We fell in love with The Isle of Lewis thanks in no small part to Ian, our host at Broad Bay House. He was there to greet us at the door with a map and an itinerary that took the best advantage of our time. Go to the Isle of Lewis and stay nowhere but Broad Bay House! The setting was stunning and the room sublime. Everything was in sync with the extraordinary natural environment which impressed us greatly. Our only regret is that we didn't arrange for dinner, but if breakfast was any indicator, it would have been exceptional. It will be a life long love affair and we will return whenever we can!

All the accolades from other reviews are justified. 5 star rooms, service and food but with all the charm of a friendly guest house. Meticulous attention to detail in all aspects. Ian and Marion are wonderful hosts. It is 15 minutes from town but that means it is on a broad, beautiful and deserted beach. Dinner was exceptional.

I must admit that I am something of a Hotel fan. Staying at a guesthouse is not something I would normally consider. Broad Bay Guesthouse has changed my outlook.

Our stay here was an absolute pleasure. Our room was impeccably clean and better appointed than any hotel I have stayed in. The lounge is a superb place to relax in. Comfortable seating and amazing views over the bay. The furnishings, artwork and layout help to create a wonderful relaxed space.

Dinner is on offer here and to not take up the offer would be a mistake! The food served is excellent at both dinner and breakfast.

It is clear that every detail at Broad Bay has been carefully considered. The attention to detail cannot be faulted.

I cannot recommend Broad Bay House highly enough. A truly unique place to stay.

This is probably the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived right up until we left it was delightful. Ian and Marion are perfect hosts. Always there to tend to any requests not matter how little or big. I cannot recommend Broad Bay House enough. I have tried to book again since staying there and it is always full!! Can't say better than that!
Marion and Iain have looked after every little detail and are very thoughtful. To say the food was absolutely delicious would be a huge understatement. The beds are comfortable and big. The rooms have everything you need.
I'll be booking the next available slot!

Room Tip: Any room would be perfect!

Ian and Marion have created a wonderful place - part small hotel, part B and B, part home away from home. The views are great, the setting is tranquil, the hospitality is superb. Ian's craft in the kitchen adds the finishing touches to a very high quality place to stay, so do eat in if you can.

Room Tip: book room 4, as it overlooks the sea and is the closest to the lounge/dining area.

My partner and I stayed here for three nights last week and the cares and worries of life just melted away. Broad Bay House has managed to create a guest house that feels like 'your place' for the time you stay there. It is way beyond achieving five stars on every rating, as this is a place that anticipates your needs and then fulfills them with the minimum of fuss - everything and everybody there is quiet and unobtrusive. It has a quality about it that is more than the luxurious accomodation, sumptuous food and friendly service that it offers. We really felt so relaxed there that it is hard to convey in words the ambiance Broad Bay House has managed to create. It is unique.

Words cannot convey enough to praise this place, exceptional service from both staff and owners. Food that deserves Michelin star ratings. Surroundings that rest body and mind, luxurious and homely, can't wait to go back . Many thanks for a holiday in the best place in the world, Lewis and Harris.
