Broad Bay House is in a wonderful location and Ian and Marion are wonderful hosts! It is one of the best places that I have stayed in.

I was really looking forward to our three nights at Broad Bay House. It didn't disappoint. Marion and Ian provide outstanding bedrooms, dining room, and sitting room. The food they serve is amazing with a level of service to match. Broad Bay House provides a glorious view of the sea and it totally lives up to the advertised description "luxury... More

We spent 4 nights at the Broad Bay Guest House, including a Sunday where we were treated to a delicious homestyle Sunday night dinner. The accommodations are stylishly understated and appropriate to the simplicity of the Isle. From the picture windows you can watch the tide move out making a home for seals and birds, as the sheep wander by.... More

An extremely well appointed guest house, with lots of additional items such as annotated OS maps and advice about places to visit.Great central space with honesty bar and telescope, there was also ground coffee and cafetieres and snacks in the room. But the number of rather narrow rules and meal timings make the experience less relaxing than it might be.

We have been touring Scotland and some of the islands with my son and his fiancé. We stayed at Broadbay guesthouse for 2 nights. So wish it had been longer. This little jewel was absolutely perfect. So clean and homely. Ian and Marion have thought of everything, including gluten free and dairy free dietary requirements. It's just stunning. We will... More

Don't know where to start. Only four rooms and a lounge that you could hold a dance in! Comfortable, welcoming, relaxing, I could go on all day.

"Wow" is the best description I can think of for Broad Bay House. My wife and I stayed here for one night of our Hebridean Road Trip and it was by far the most luxurious property we stayed at.
