I stay regularly at this guest house because it is so welcoming and comfortable. The decor is unique and the building is quirky but I come back every few months and would not stay anywhere else.

Our ferry had been cancelled and we needed a place to stop at very late notice. The lady in charge was very welcoming. The guest house is very pleasant and although not particularly breath-taking, it was comfortable for the evening and would stay again if in the area.

We stayed for three nights in this guest house. It was perfect to reach everything on Lewis and very close to the ferry terminal. The house is very old but ok for us. Tanja was a very friendly host and helped us in everything she could. Tank you very much!

I did a last minute change to my itinerary and spent 2 night in this lovely B&B. Tanya was friendly and I felt at home immediately. The decor is quirky and even the other guests were friendly. My room was in the garden cottage and I appreciated the piracy and easy access to the street as I had to leave...

I am a regular business traveller to Lewis and the Tower Guesthouse has always been my preferred base. An old, well maintained Victorian house, every room has character. The bedrooms are homely, comfortable and most are ensuite. There is a guest lounge with Sky TV, bookcases, comfy seats and a chess set. Wifi is provided too, so great if you...
