We had originally booked into Eshcol Guest House next door, but were informed on our arrival that we had been upgraded. Our room was on the ground floor and was very spacious. The ensuite bathroom was very impressive. We didn't have an evening meal but breakfast was very good and was served in a light airy dining room, which gave excellent views. We very much enjoyed our stay.

5 females travelling from Barra to Lewis can be fickle. It can be difficult to get twins and singles in some places but we were well accommodated in Breasclete between the two properties. The rooms were very clean and bright with fabulous views. Refreshments and toiletries, from local suppliers, added a nice touch. The towels were changed daily. We thought there was a lovely relaxed ambience throughout our stay of two nights. One night we ate in the hotel which was pleasant and the other we had the in-house meal. It was not the sophisticated dining of restaurant food. Instead we had a home cooked and well presented meal of smoked salmon and deliciously ripe avocado followed by a good piece of roast pork with well cooked veg. To top it all off we had a lovely passion fruit cake. We enjoyed the breakfasts particularly the perfectly cooked poached eggs. The girls who served us were friendly and Donald ,our host, chatted to us after the meal and shared his local knowledge. The location is great for the Callanish Stones and also for exploring Lewis. It was certainly our favourite place in our 10 day itinerary. I would happily stay there again

Room Tip: I had a lovely south facing room with en-suite facilities. Those on the south side probably are the...

A clean and comfortable hotel I would be quite happy to stay in again. We had a quite spacious double room with an extremely comfortable bed and a large bathroom - with bath not just shower. Good choice at breakfast at well spaced tables in light and airy room and separate sitting room available too. An evening meal was available but we never sampled it. Welcomed by the host who, when he found out we were exploring the island in depth, identified all the hills etc for us from the hotel window and was a mine of information.

We were quite satisfied but some guests we spoke to thought it was poor and claimed their room was not 3 star. Maybe we were lucky?

On our first night, I did wonder why the reviews of this B&B were so mixed. By the end of day 2, I understood.

First, the good. The location is very nice. The rooms are okay (but be aware that you might not end up in the room you thought you booked) and it was very clean; the TV in the bedroom incorporated a DVD player, and the hospitality tray was well thought out. The lounge was also pleasant and most of the time parking was fine. The Wifi was also okay. Breakfast was okay, though if the B&B is busy, expect to be corralled from one table to another day by day and do not, whatever you do, arrive early. Dinner was more of a problem, particularly as "there were just the two of us". [And we were both female, so evidently foraging for ourselves on a Sunday evening wasn't a problem. Regrettably I'd left my bow and arrow behind in the south. Thankfully the Doune Braes nearby was serving, even on a Sunday, and the meals there obviously used nice, fresh produce for a good, hearty menu.]

For a fairly accurate review, see p. 283 of "Remote Britain" by David St John Thomas. It isn't about this guest house, but it might as well be....!

Room Tip: - Don't assume you'll get the room you booked. - The nearest hotel serving food is the Dou...

The mark of a fine business is consistency and the Macarthur family continues to provide the best accommodations on Lewis. Though I have tried a few others, Loch Roag Guest House is still the best stay we have tried on this beautiful island. Whatever your budget, the accommodations are always perfect, and if there is anything extra or special required, the hosts always go the extra mile to provide. The food is delightful and well-prepared and is eaten in a room with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. (The breakfast puddings are fantastic!) As always, the Macarthurs' knowledge of the Island is worth its weight in gold for finding things to do or events taking place. We are happy returning guests!

We stayed three nights at this B&B.
The general feeling is the family left us alone and prepared to gain the most cash for as little as possible. The B & B was clean, breakfast was adequate - on one occassion, the white pudding was served with the wrapper intact ! Evening meals were also adequate but would found a simple thing like mashed potatoes woeful.
For the amount charged - I expect something a little better.

We stayed for one night.
Large spacious double room with ensuite. Furnishing and decor a little on the tired side.
It is large for a B&B. I counted 10 guests at breakfast.
We had dinner at Loch Roag because there is nowhere else in walking distance. It was a plain meal and at £20 for three courses, was good value.
Breakfast was OK, inevitably it appeared somewhat mass produced.
