“Average B&B”
Reviewed June 29, 2010

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.

It must be said that if you stay in the room my girlfriend and I had then there will be no secrets!

Shower/toilet is accessed via a wooden particion door which wasn't exactly sound proof if you see what I mean! Also if you wanted to bend over to rinse your mouth whilst brushing your teeth you really needed to open the door!

Shower we were warned makes a noise when in use but it was nothing alarming and did the job.

Room was small but it's a B & B not an hotel. No TV in room and given the lack of things to do in Lochboisdale this could be missed on a wet windy night!

Breakfast was good and overall not too bad a place.

Ate in the Lochboisdale Hotel which was ok. Had the Fish Pasta which was supposed to have scallops in it but .......I think they must have been those micro scallops as I couldn't find them!

We stayed here for 4 nights.Really nice Breakfasts.Great location.
Most of all two very nice people who run it.
Went out of the way to help as we were non drivers.
Gave us a lift when the heavens opened one night.
Gave us a lift to the ferry which is only a ten min walk.

Cannot recommend this place enough.
