Reviewed July 27, 2013

Had dinner at Ardhasig House for my mum's 83rd birthday. 5 of us in all including our daughter and her boyfriend. Food was great, particularly the scallops, which tasted of the sea, and the rack of lamb, which tasted fresh, clean and was very tender. Katie doesn't get her effects with lots of salt, as quite a few restaurants do. Good, fresh, local ingredients and skilled cooking. Wasn't a great evening weatherwise, so we didn't get the value of the view from the great setting, but everyone was very welcoming, and we had a nice chat with Katie afterwards. A nice touch is that she builds the menu around your likes and dislikes, so our daughter and boyfriend, who don't like seafood, had something instead of the scallops. £48 per head is slightly pricey, but it was a special occasion and it was very good.

Everything about Ardhasaig House was excellent and Katie made us (with our 14 month old son) feel very welcome and at home. The evening dinner was absolutely outstanding and could beat most London restaurants. The breakfasts were fresh and cooked to order it was just a great place to stay on Harris that we will definitely go back to.

Stayed here for 2 nights 7-8 July 2013. Beautiful location. Had booked standard double but given "THE BARN" which is self contained alongside main hotel. The view from our front window was beautiful especailly as the weather was great throughout.
Katie the owner is so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Her evening meal was absolutely delicious - local produce and the scallops especially were devine! Breakfast equally good and her porridge and home made oatcakes were even better than my Mums!
Would thoroughly recommend this small hotel to anyone. Katie deserves to do well. She works so hard and her welcome would encourage anyone to stay.
We'll definately be back Katie.
Many thanks

Room Tip: The barn is wonderful !

We stayed 1 night two couples .The Bed rooms were shabby .The evening meal was very expensive and no choice.To top it all a cat strolled around the dinning room while we were eating I doubt it has any star rating which it claims .on a good note the breakfast was very nice .The young waiters were very polite ,but saw nobody who was in charge . We were all exstreemly disapointed .We feel like we were ripped off .We would not recomend this hotel to anybody
We have never written a revue before so you can see how upset we were.

We stayed here for two nights and it is nicely located for the ferry port. I stayed in a single room and although very clean and comfortable the bedroom was dated. The en-suite was modern with a nice shower.
We did have our evening meal on one night and it was expensive albeit very good. The breakfasts were lovely and nothing was too much trouble.
Katy was very helpful, her cooking was excellent and the staff all very friendly.
The area around the house is very peaceful and quiet.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet. I stayed in a small single room which looked out over the loch and it was...

We stayed 2 nights and found Ardhasaig to be fantastic.The evening meal we had was as good as anything we've ever had and as for the breakfasts...well they are second to none.Katie is a great chef and host with the the happiest team around her.The two young lads who were waiting are the most polite waiters you'll ever come across.We would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Harris,thanks Katie and staff and best wishes for the future.

Popped into the Ardhasaig and asked to book for evening meal the following evening - no problem was the response. Katie discussed our food preferences and booked us in even although a camera crew were coming to film the Ardhasaig the following day and evening!
Can't agree more strongly with all the positive comments of other guests at Ardhasaig. We were treated as royalty by Katie and her team. The film crew were there on our arrival in the lounge but this did not distract the staff from welcoming us warmly and attending to us all evening in a very professional manner. The food was simply superb. It was an enormous surprise to me that Katie even found time to speak with us and other diners in the lounge while drinking our coffee. Scottish food and hospitality at its highest. Thank you so much Katie and your team.
