The Caladh Hotel is well located close to the centre of Stornoway. It is a hotel which primarily caters for bus tour groups. The hotel offered buffet service for both dinner and breakfast which was unusual during Covid times. We ate in the hotel on the first evenig we were there and found the buffet decent enough. Breakfast was an extensive buffet and food was fresh enough. Restaurant was busy when the bus parties arrived. If you avoided them it was decent enough. Staff were very nice and friendly . The bar was the biggest disappointment being a characterless area next the big restaurant. The room was comfortable enough with arbitrary room service provided. A decent hotel to stay in when visiting Stornoway
Stayed on my first night in the Western Isles, Room was very small, once I had put my case etc in there was very little room for myself. The bed was comfortable and fortunately the rooms had been refurbished at some point not to long ago. The shower in my room was OK, however, there was traffic noise from James Street during the night. The windows are not double glazed. Breakfast was OK, it is a buffet service, however, staff were attentive and kept the breakfast items, fully replenished.
This review is for the resturant only (eleven resturant). The food was not very good, everything tasted the same and sickly sweet. Overpriced for the quality. The atmosphere felt as if you were in a campus dining and the staff never returned my change.
This review is one of a series relating to hotels and restaurants visited on a tour of the Western Isles with Leger Holidays. It is my belief that, with the exception of the Caladh Inn, Stornoway, the menus with which we were presented were negotiated by Leger and subsequently may not be fully representative of the usual offerings of that hotel. Also, I can't comment on the value for money offered by individual hotels, as the cost of hotels was covered by the holiday price. It’s also worth mentioning that this tour happened during the COVID pandemic, when infection rates in Scotland were still very high. Consequently, establishments were suffering staff shortages, and I suspect some were just recovering from an extended shut-down. Other hotels and restaurants/cafes visited were: Hotels: - Normandy Hotel, Renfrew, Glasgow - Kings Arms Hotel, Kyleakin, Isle of Skye - Dark Island Hotel, Liniclate, Isle of Benbecula - Angus Hotel, Wellmeadow, Blairgowrie Cafés, Restaurants: - Highland Cinema, Fort William - Borodale Hotel, Daliburgh, Isle of South Uist - Loomshed Deli, Tarbet, Isle of Harris - Artizan, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, - Scotch Corner of Pitlochry, Pitlochry I'll try and post reviews for all these places. The Caladh Inn, Stornoway looks like just another chain hotel. You could be anywhere in the world and recognize the type. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found. The welcome and check in process was largely handled by our driver, but the hotel was expecting us and it all went smoothly. We were quickly in our rooms (except for two couples whose rooms weren't ready). Our room was huge, well-equipped, comfortable, airy and light. The bathroom was enormous, excellent shower/bath, spotlessly clean and modern. We spent a comfortable couple of nights there, and slept well. Internet access via wifi was good and reliable in the room. The dining room was large and well-managed with its own bar. The range of drinks in the bar wasn't brilliant, but service was good and prices reasonable. As I mentioned above, this was the only hotel where we dined on the standard offering. which was a carvery with salad bar - all very well-presented and prepared. I very much enjoyed the food. For breakfast, again a buffet with a good range of standard breakfast fare, nicely done. There is another bar in the hotel, which is where we were served with tea/coffee after meals. Pleasant enough place, reasonable range of spirits in the bar but if you're an ale man, you'd be disappointed. Prices seemed comparable to mainland bar prices. The hotel location is good - a short walk from the centre of Stornoway and the harbour, bus station and ferry terminal. Would I go there again? yes, no problem. Would I recommend? yes - absolutely.…
This hotel is a very short stroll from our holiday flat so very handy for the Elevens Restaurant. We enjoy this restaurant very much especially the carvery. Food and selection of food is excellent we think and very reasonably priced. We visited twice this week and happy we did. We have previously stayed in the hotel and very happy with the rooms we had.
