    Theft

    I booked this hotel for work via hotels.com at a rate of 55 GBP per night. When i checked in i queried how i would pay as i was leaving early for the ferry and was told my card would be charged. The manager queried where id got my rates from as they werent the usual rates. When i returned home i found that id been charged 75GBP per night for my stay. This amounts to nothing less than premeditated theft. The hotel staff have refused to issue a refund. Needless to say i'm taking this further but id say avoid thid place like the plague

    Nice enough hotel although it is well overdue a renovation. Bed was comfortable and staff were friendly.

    Very nice hotel. Staff are extremely nice, lady that checked us in to our room was very professional but extremely friendly. The man who served breakfast was again very friendly. The hotel is clean and very tidy, with the rooms being of a high standard. Absolutely no issues and would recommend to anyone staying in Stornoway.

    Not a great stay but food was excellent

    Booked a ‘buisness single’ which is supposed to be a 3/4 double, however was allocated a small single room. Didn’t get much sleep as there was very noisy pipe work running through the room and was kept awake by very loud running water. Shower was extremely small. The room was dated but clean. Food was excellent however so complements to the chef. The Indian food was some of the best I’ve had in Scotland. Probably wouldn’t stay again but will definitely visit for a meal.

    Traditional in Stornoway

    Nice hotel which has been undergoing refurbishment but with nice original features like the lovely staircase. Very helpful staff. Lovely breakfast and dinner. Good choice of menu. Room had been refurbished so was fresh and clean with new en suite and carpet. Very comfortable bed. Furntiure was a bit tired but adequate. The only downside was the noise level from outside and within the hotel which was partly due to it being in the town centre so close to Christmas and there being a function room on the floor below but would help if double glazing was fitted and more soundproof internal room doors as I could hear the occupant next door talking on his phone most of the night and the noise appeared to be travelling down the corridor through the doors rather than through the walls. I would definitely consider staying here again as it is also very convenient for ferry and the arts centre, though probably not the weekend before Christmas.
