We had a really lovely 3 Night stay in August. (2nd Visit to The Guest house). Superb Location, Very Comfortable rooms, Fabulous breakfasts and Fantastic hosts! Love it! ❤ Would Highly reccomend a stay here to anyone visiting Stornoway! ....And the Stornoway Black pudding is a MUST. 😋
A warm and prompt greeting on arrival from Linda who even moved her car so that I could park right outside the front door. Room 10 was incredibly clean and comfortable. The bathroom is very modern and the shower was good. Breakfast was excellent. It was nice to be able to sleep with the window open as the neighbourhood is very quiet. The complimentary hot chocolate and shortbread was very much appreciated.
Sadly no parking on site, there is limited parking outside on main road. We understand the guest house was not full when we where there , although we were allocated a room in the attic, not easy to get two large suitcases up 😔. We found the room very clean with the usual tea coffee making facilities, the shower was fantastic, although the bathroom was very small, although t did have all usual shampoo and liquid soaps to hand , towels and bedding very nice quality. Good choice of breakfast on offer , all freshly cooked to order .
It is well positioned and on the whole good. I would strongly advise that you have a room that is not facing the road. It is on a main road that is very busy and noisy. Breakfast was good, but don't expect any fresh fruit.
As I sat in Ullapool waiting for the ferry, having been lashed by wind and rain on my motorbike journeying from Inverness, I was trying to find somewhere to stay in Stornaway. The choices were pretty limited due to the current situation, but thankfully the Hebridean Guest House had a room available. I arrived at about 8pm, fairly moist, Linda’s welcome was very warm and she was thankfully not put off by my appearance. She showed me to my large, warm and comfortable room. Having travelled 530 miles and then the ferry journey, the comfort of the bed and a hot shower was just what I needed. An extra bonus was the heated towel rail that enabled me to try out clothing and boots from my journey! The breakfast was fabulous and if you haven’t had Stornaway Black Pudding, you really should (unless you are a veggy, or Vegan obviously) It was a great base for touring round the island and the position 5 mins walk from Stornaway centre made it an ideal spot. I would highly recommend the Hebridean Guest House to anyone wishing to visit the islands.…
