    The warm welcome from Ian and Marion and the quality and variety of breakfast was excellent. You could pre order a supper platter of cold meats and cheeses for your evening meal. The location and views from the lounge area were stunning.

    Welcomed warmly and the location is superb. Room was beautiful with wet room which was an added bonus. Views from the lounge just delightful. Honesty bar well stocked and room had lots of snacks which made a change from the usual dry biscuits offered elsewhere. Breakfast cooked to order with annoyingly perfect poached eggs. Owners happy to advise on where to find things so all in all a perfect stay.

    All aspects of the accomodation are extremely well detailed and contemporary, providing for a very comfortable stay. The location is a short drive from Stornoway, and well situated for exploring the surrounding area. The beach is easily accessed by foot. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend this accomodation.

    As such this is not a low cost stay, but it is definitely worth it. To lunch and dine you have to go to Stornoway (15 min. easy drive) or further away, and there is not a broad choice of restaurants (or even places to lunch or grab a coffee) on the island. We were not very lucky with the weather.

    This multiple room B&B has a lovely lounge in which guests are welcome all day, three of the walls are mainly glass and the middle of them gives a wonderful view over the bay with beach, rocky islands off-shore with seals, and low cliffs left and right. Breakfast is fabulous. Very warm welcome. Great facilities in lounge and room. Ideal place to relax, even if the weather does not work along well.

    Nothing to fault.

    Excellent attention to detail for all aspects of our stay e.g. curtains went all the way across the window so no join for light to get in; fire instructions in nice frames rather than just pinned to the back of the door; little torch on keys so you could find the lock easily in the dark; maps available for the local area; varied magazine collection in the room; excellent local white putting for breakfast ...I could go on!

    Faultless.

    Let's start with the basics of this hidden gem! The beds were supremely comfortable and the rooms very well appointed. Lots of info on the island for us to plan our adventures, and the rooms were filled with great touches like dark curtains, local music to play on the audio and a fantastic array of teas. The honesty bar is a godsend after a long journey (great selection of Malts and Gins to try) and the lounge is glorious with full length Windows to view the sea. The owners have a great eye for art with lots of local pieces around the house. The staff are warm, friendly and so helpful, just perfect really! Then we have the location....the views are simply stunning, the ever changing light on the sea mesmerising. We'd totally recommend taking a stroll along the beach, see the colour of the sea for yourself!

    there is much more spacecraft technology built in than anybody can use during a normal stay. But if you still look for the holodeck, you haven't checked out the bathroom.

    the walk down to the beach is a must.
