“Pleasant B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

I stayed for a couple of nights in September 2011, travelling solo around the Outer Hebrides by bus. Patsy was welcoming & the B&B was pleasant, with a lovely breakfast. The hotel (a mile away) has a restaurant and serves bar meals, and was fine to while away the evening. If you do not have a car you may want a torch to find your way back to the B&B once you get off the main road, on the other hand a friendly local might stop and give you a lift anyway !

Monika and Robert Stayed for 2 nigths in Brealea B&B. It was better installed than advertised with alle required facilities shower en suite, TV in lounge and well furnished and spacious. We enjoied the hospitality and the friendliness of Patsy who isowner of the house.

We can as well recommend the Breakfast well prepared an lavely presented. The outside lqn is spacious and one has a beautukk view of the landscape. Restaurant is about one mile away on the main road at the crossing. There you can get good food at reasonable price.

We would certainly visit again.

Stayed for 1 night in a very comfortable spacious room, a pleasant residents lounge is available with good views towards Lochboisdale. Breakfast was good and hearty and the hospitality warm and welcoming. Good evening meals were available at the Lochboisdale Hotel which was only a 20 minute walk from the house. Recommended

Brae Lea House was our shelter on a rainy afternoon.
After a brief welcome we have not met our hosts for the rest of the day.
We had dinner in the Lochboisdale Hotel which was very cosy, there was no other place to go anyway.

Breakfast was chosen from a menu and very delicious.

The B&B is for sale and unfortunately one could feel that the owners are a bit weary. It was OK for what the name "Bed and Breakfast" stands for. Our room looked much better than on the home page.

The breakfast was lovely, Patsy also cooked a lovely eveing meal. I liked the house very much we had a great room and bath room number 5, but yes the walls are a bit thin. I would still recommend this place.

In most ways this was a standard B+B. Differences were a significantly larger than usual bedroom, but a minute very cramped bathroom – with a strange folding door and an electric shower. There is no TV in the room, but a good lounge.

They do not offer dinner which is available at the Lochboisedale Hotel ¾ mile away – there is no alternative. On the Saturday night in May we went there every table in the dining room and in the bar were occupied by diners, so it could be wise to make a reservation.

There is a for sale sign outside the B+B so things may be different in future – for better for worse.

We checked into the B&B with Patsy for a two night stay.  The room did not have a key so we locked important stuff in the luggage.  The WIFI connection was available but slow.  The room was large; the bed was comfortable and the shower was very good.  Our towels were changed each day.  Breakfast was cooked to order with smoked haddock and kipper available; tasty alternative to bacon and eggs.
