Stayed in the annex. Decor is a little dated but it was clean and comfortable. Price was an issue for us and we feel we received excellent value. We spent our last evening in the "Snug Bar" with the hosts sharing tales of life on the island and other guests chiming in with more details as well as humming the tune of "Leaving Port Askaig" so I could recognise it. A magical visit - made moreso by the welcoming hosts and staff.
