We had a two-night stay here as part of a five-night tour of the Highlands and Islands. I had read that it was the best hotel in Stornoway but, since that does not necessarily put it on a par with the best hotel in Paris, my expectations were not particularly high. Straight away on our arrival we were impressed when the friendly young manager, very hands-on and smartly dressed, met us as we got off our coach and efficiently handed us our room keys. All staff were friendly and helpful and albeit we were part of a coach party we were made to feel that as individuals we were valued guests. Meals were included as part of our tour package and I had an issue with the dinner menu: of the three mains one was fish (don't eat it), one was vegetarian (I am not a vegetarian) and the other was chicken, fine except it was stuffed with black pudding which is a local speciality but which I don't like. The staff took this on board with no problem: I could go a la carte, paying any difference from our package allowance, or they would do me a plain piece of chicken at no extra cost. I opted for the latter and it was very good, as were all our meals, two dinners and two breakfasts, served by friendly and attentive staff in the pleasant restaurant. On our second evening there was a display of Scottish dancing in the reception area before we went in to dinner. Our room was spacious and well designed and that goes for the hotel generally. Stornoway is a pleasant town, main centre on the Island of Lewis and Harris, which was deservedly voted by Trip Advisor reviewers the most beautiful island in Europe. Even Capri has to take a bow!
