Cabarfeidh Hotel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Stornoway
Reviewed May 6, 2014

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!

This is an excellent hotel with truly professional staff. We recently came here on a coach tour just prior to Easter. The rooms were very comfortable. The food was first-class and the staff were very attentive. Try the Daisy cocktail, my wife thoroughly recommends it !

Been here couple of times, undoubtedly the best hotel in Stornoway. Friendly staff, excellent restaurant and reasonable price. During the festive season its very difficult to secure rooms in Stornoway so remember to book well in advance. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: higher floors are recommended during summer

Stayed at this hotel for a single night on a business trip to Stornoway, the hotel is well placed at the top end of the town. I stayed in a double room that was a decent size with modern decor and also had most things that you would need for an overnighter. The resteraunt was very good serving delicious food and the breakfast was great . The hotels wasn't cheap but I have to say I enjoyed my visit and if I got the chance to return to Stornoway I would book the hotel again . Overall nice hotel not luxury but a decent standard and clean .

Went for Sunday lunch here at short notice and it was simply excellent. Had the beef, really tender lots of it, lovely gravy and lightly cooked veg. Nice friendly staff too. While (slightly) more expensive than others, we certainly got what we paid for

Stayed here while on business. Comfortable enough room in a very business focused hotel, cleanliness ok, shower and bathroom just fine and nothing special. Overall does the job without frills. The best aspect is the food, good choice and well presented at both dinner and breakfast.
Overall fine while working as out most of the day.
