Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

We were so lucky! After a night of camping in high winds and rain, I phoned Hebridean Guesthouse and Linda went out of her way to provide our family with a room.
What a lovely safe haven!
They provide every room with absolutely everything you might need as an overnight guest - from a firm bed, to coffee making facilities and a nice hot shower.
Even though Linda has been doing this for thirty odd years, she still has time and a smile for everyone.
Breakfast was super, and consisted of hot and cold options. The full English with its perfectly poached egg kept us full all day.
Thank you!

Excellent place to stay in Stornaway. The rooms are well equipped and the towel rail in the bathroom makes the whole bathroom warm. Shower was good too. Breakfast eggs were perfect.
It is an easy walk to a great coffee shop and then a bit further to the main city centre.

Room Tip: Probably better to get a room nearer the back of the guest house as the road is busy.

Friendly welcome, impeccably clean good sized room at front of house. Previous reviewer has suggested avoiding a front room… yes, a bit of traffic noise at times but we’re not taking trying to sleep beside a motorway. Things quieten down as the evening progresses and then, in the morning, the passing cars help with waking up. Or, maybe, I just had more relaxing whisky than the other guest 😀

Joking apart… a welcoming host, a very comfortable room and bed, substantial breakfast all at a reasonable price within in an easy level 10 - 15 minute walk of the vibrating centre od pf Stornoway.

Works for me…

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.

Visited the Isles of Harris and Lewis for the inaugural Marathon Hebrides, opted to stay in Stornoway as a base of operations. Hebridean House was perfectly located and the staff were more than accommodating, helpful, and made me feel at home. Close enough in Stornoway to walk everywhere and an excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

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 .

Great location, and very nice room. We stayed here for two nights as part of a three day Rabbie’s Tour of the Hebrides. The breakfast was great. We were able to walk to nearby stops for food. Stornoway itself doesn’t have much to appreciate, but this was a great place to choose if you are thinking about booking this Rabbie’s tour.

We stayed for two nights at the start of our Hebridean holiday. Linda was welcoming and professional. We were able to use the TV lounge to watch the Queens Funeral and were really grateful for the fortifying dram that Linda gave us; it hit the spot! Great breakfast.
