This is definitely the place to stay for as long as you can manage. The food is excellent. Ian and Marion are fantastic hosts. The local ordinance maps they supplied were a great help in getting around the islands on day trips. One feature that was really helpful during our 9 night stay was the washer and dryer. Don't even think of staying any place else.

This was the perfect place to stop overnight and we wish that we had more time to enjoy it because we arrived rather late and left fairly early due to other engagements. That said, we still were able to enjoy the guest lounge before dinner (we stayed on a night that dinner was not served) and a short walk on the beach after breakfast. Best part to me (being used to a "real" king size bed and never really getting that in Scotland no matter what the descriptions say) was that our room had a real king, which rivaled my own in comfort.

We stayed for just one night, but would have happily spent a week here!

The house has just 4 bedrooms and is beautifully furnished - everything looks like new!

We had a wonderful welcome from the owner, fantastic service at dinner and breakfast and excellent food.

The house is nicely located overlooking the beach and the owner has a wealth of information about local walks / sights which you can borrow during your stay.

The staff and owner could not have done anything more to help us during our stay.

The only complaint I have about this outstanding establishment overlooking lovely Broad Bay, north of Stornoway, is the fact that most guests do not stop over long enough to savour fully the peace, hospitality and magic of this place. The two hosts, Ian and Marion, are the most considerate one may wish for. Accommodation is very good, and they have looked at the tiniest details in order to provide a memorable stay. We had wonderful room 4, and loved the spacious shower. The room is high spec, and is kept immaculate by Jasmine. The bed was excellent. The view from the windows is really peaceful and very relaxing. Could sit in the comfy chair and look for ever at the ripless sea and the plunging birds. We had three dinners at Broad Bay House, and particularly enjoyed a lovely pea, lettuce and mint soup and the best salmon and crunchy apple salad ever. All the bread they serve is home made and lovely. The wine selection is excellent. Honesty bar very well stocked. The complimentary selection of snacks in the rooms include wine, nuts, different kind of teas and coffees, shortbreads, chocolate fingers, you name it and it is there. Breakfast is on a par with the rest. Marion and Ian really put themselves out to accommodate us in all possible ways and we can only thank them once again for everything they did. When you look for accommodation on Lewis and Harris do not look any farther than Broad Bay House if you like understaded luxury, peace and the finer things in life. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Any room is lovely. We had room 4 with sea view.

We stayed only for a night but wished it had been a week. This very special guesthouse has everything you could want for relaxing and chilling out both inside and in. Ian was so helpful and accommodated our cyclist needs/bikes/bike bags etc. we had a lovely walk on what felt like a private beach and sat marvelling at the views with a glass of wine in our hands from the guest house lounge! We stayed in room 2 with the wonderful bath and will definitely be back. We have stayed at some wonderful guesthouses in Scotland and france this summer-but this is our favourite!

Room Tip: Room 2 with the wonderful bath!

Imagine you're sitting surrounded by candles looking out to sea - you've just had an amazing meal, good wine, and first class meal. You move across to your leather armchair, put your feet up and glass in hand pick up a great travel magazine. This place is all wood floors leather sofas white cotton sheets large fluffy towels and luxury. Nice touches include free bottle of wine (you can choose the colour) and crisps, tea, coffee and a box of biscuits in your room. Fab honesty bar with wine spirits beers liqueurs soft drinks and ice machine. We had a huge free standing bath and all the rooms have wooden decks where you can sit out. You are literally right on the beach and breakfast is amazing. A personal fresh fruit platter with berries, every marmalade and spread you can think of and fab range of cooked choices and upmarket cereals. Thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: There is only one room with a sea view, but the main sitting area has outstanding views and decking...

We had a wonderful one night stay at Broad Bay last month and would love to return soon for a longer break. We were most impressed by the quality of the accommodation, attention to detail, delicious food and kind hospitality. The panoramic views from the dining room/lounge - with sightings of seabirds and seals - will stay long in the memory.
