My family and I have stayed in several of Graham's properties over the years and they're all highly recommended. On this occasion we booked Am Bothan but were upgraded to Iolaire Lodge at no extra charge. Both properties are just off Sand Street in Stornoway and near to Craigroyston Lodge which we had also stayed in previously (and also highly recommended). I have to say we were extremely impressed once again with Iolaire. Spotlessly clean, lovely open plan design and every amenity you could wish for including even a spa bath, sauna and outside hot tub. Free Wi-Fi and a selection of DVDs available. The lodge was lovely and warm with it's own gas fire along with storage heaters. The kitchen is well equipped and it was nice to see a welcoming pint of milk in the fridge. There's a washing machine and tumble dryer and dishwasher for use along with a microwave as you'd expect. The Lodge offers parking with direct access to the accommodation and its well located within Stornoway. We didn't have our dogs with us on this occasion but we had them at Craigroyston and there's a good walk for them if you turn left onto Sand Street and walk down to the end of the road.
All in all an excellent stay and extremely competitive price wise when you compare it to a family room at the Caberfeidh Hotel for example. We will certainly be back to stay at another of Graham's properties in the near future and highly recommend any of his properties as the perfect place to stay in Stornoway.
