We loved our stay at Chalet Coll. such a great find for us. This is a beautiful, compact and bijou chalet! I travelled with my wife and mother and we all loved our stay here. Great location and so peaceful and tranquil. We had great sleeps. Top marks to the owners. We will be back!

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a lovely stay at Chalet Coll, very cosy and comfortable. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived, everything we could need for a trip away. Very clean and felt nice and homely. We even had milk and lovely biscuits waiting for us on arrival, which was very much appreciated. Would recommend staying here. We would definitely like to return on our next trip to explore the beautiful island of Lewis.

“Very good base”

The chalet is about 15 minutes outside Stornoway. It makes a good base for exploring Lewis while staying close to the main town. If you get the weather Coll Beach is fabulous and 10 minutes walk.
The chalet itself is quite small but very well done. I was there on my own but it would suit a couple. It's clean, comfortable and well equipped. Wifi was variable but I think that's an area rather than a chalet problem and may be fixed later this year.
The owners are kind, welcoming and helpful, as well as very tolerant of guests with no sense of direction.
I would go back.

“Well planned and compact little chalet.”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Chalet Col is a very compact but expertly planned little chalet. Comfortable and warm, Iain and Ishbel have thought it all out very carefully and the furnishings and equipment are excellent, very well co-ordinated and all in all providing a splendid little holiday home. The three of us (my wife, myself and our daughter) were comfortably accommodated in the double and single bedrooms. There is a 'put-u-up single bed in the lounge area too which we did not need to use. Chalet Coll is situated in a quiet little crofting village, peaceful and just off of the beaten track yet just 15 minutes from Stornaway (airport and ferry as well as a very good range of shops and supermarkets) We found it to be an absolutely excellent base for touring the greater part of Lewis, most of which is within an hour's drive. Southern Lewis and Harris is a little further but still within a reasonable journey time. The beaches are superb - some within just a few minutes drive or a comfortable walk and half an hour's drive takes you over to the spectacular Atlantic surf on the western side of the Island.
iain and Ishbel are most hospitable and welcoming hosts and we could not recommend Chalet Coll more highly.

Stayed with a friend at Chalet Coll 1/7/15 for 3 nights . Chalet is compact but has everything required - is very clean and comfortable, also quite secure with owners house nearby . Very nice beach 20 minutes walking distance , local shop & Post Office 15 minutes away . Stornoway approx 20 minutes in car , also seems to be quite a good bus service. Would return another year.

The chalet is ideally located to explore Lewis, near stunning beaches and Stornoway. It's perfect for 2 or 3 people and well equiped. The owners are lovely and very helpful.

Management Response
Aug 29, 2017
Many thanks for review - this helps us get things even better. Regarding the directions to chalet some people do get a bit lost hence we are going to make some changes there. Also when the summer/busy season is over we are going to put a bunk bed in the single bedroom, the lower bed will be able accommodate from a child to a very grown up adult and the top bed will also accommodate an adult.
Kind Regards Iain & Ishbal
