“Perfect well appointed cottage in a setting to die for.”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Seaview Chalet was for my wife, self & Jack Russel a superp base for our explorations and visits on Harris and Lewis, it being well equipped spacious and comfortable. The weather treated us well in the main and Joan, the owner's mother-in-law, made us very welcome. She and my wife got on famously especially on the topic of Harris wool, knitting patterns etc. and we were able to see works by her son Gordon Ross, photographer and artist extraordinaire. After a 24 year absence we were delighted to reacquaint ourselves with the island, especially Harris Tweed and its production and we even met some friends from our previous stay.
Altogether very satisfactory.

“A beautiful location”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My friend and I stayed for a few days in this chalet and found it to be very comfortable, well equipped and in a very peaceful, beautiful location. Everything was clean and tidy when we got there and we were made very welcome. I would be very happy to visit there again.

“Great location to visit Harris, nice chalet, good value”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The chalet is pleasant and very well equipped. The host (Joan) was very welcoming. It is centrally located, which is great to explore Harris.
We would stay there again if we have a chance to go back to Harris!

“Cosy chalet in a great location.”
Reviewed April 22, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a lovely warm welcome from the owner. The chalet was an excellent base to explore Harris and Lewis. There were some improvements since the photos on the web site were taken, and the owner said there were more planned.
We had a lovely stay and enjoyed returning each evening to the cosiness of the chalet.

“A lovely wee place ”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

First time staying at Seaview Chalet. Clean warm and exactly what we needed as a base to explore the island. 10 minutes from Tarbert and not too far from some stunning beach walks.
We arrived to a warm welcome from Joan and a spotless Chalet. Great value for money.

“Very dirty & dilapidated cottage”
Reviewed September 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

The state of the chalet is very bad. Apart from being dilapidated the chalet is very dirty. The kitchen was filthy. The first thing we had to do was to clean everything and hoover.
Cutlery drawers were filthy. The washing machine was broken. The laundry rack was falling apart.
The bathroom was very dirty and moldy. The shower curtain was also black with mold.
It seemed as if the chalet hadn't been hoovered in a long time. In the living room and in the bedroom there was dust, filth on the floor everywhere. The owner seemed friendly via e-mail in the beginning, but has shown to be untrustworthy.
