“Scottish Hospitality at its very best”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

It is always a treat to stay at Seaside Villa. Margaret and Bill are a very welcoming hebridean couple and their home is warm and very comfortable. Breakfast is fantastic and will really set you up for the day with local produce like Stornoway blackpudding.There is a lovely beach just at the other side of the road which is great for a walk to explore and find interesting shells and stones.Margaret also has a selection of locally crafted items like sweaters, scarves and tweed bags at reasonable prices which make great gifts.What more could you ask for! A great place to stay to explore Lewis!

We recently stayed at Seaside Villa on our tour of the Scottish islands and highlands and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We totally agree with all the positive comments that have been written. Thank you to Margaret and Bill for such a lovely few days.

A very welcoming and friendly B&B...our room was a bit on the small side but comfortable...our friends had the upstairs room which was very spacious but only velux windows so no view of the lovely beach opposite the house...Excellent breakfast with good choice and nothing was a problem for Margaret and her husband Bill...Gave us all the information we wanted on the area and even supplied us with good Restaurants in Stornoway itself...A bit out of Stornoway but not too far and you wouldn't want to be right in Stornoway anyway...would certainly return.

Room Tip: If you want space go for the upstairs room unless you want the view go for the front room which is a...

We stayed at this little B&B while touring the Isle of Lewis. Margaret treated us like family and was very accomodating. The breakfast was delicious. A bit out of town, but Stornaway is not much of an attraction anyway. We highly recommend this b&b.

The owner Margaret is nice enough, and as we had a very early departure the next day, she offered us a discount as we were only having cereal for breakfast. Fairplay.

But this B&B is never 4 star. The en-suite is clearly retro-fitted and with the bedroom/en-suite space being very tight, it hasnt been thought through properly e.g. shelf for kettle had no adjacent powerpoint. The finishes and linen is dated. Worst B&B out of 6 we stayed at in our Highlands trip

As soon as we arrived and met Margaret the laughter started and we knew that we had booked the best place. Quite simply Margaret and her husband Bill are down to earth, kind, friendly without being intrusive and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfasts are amazing and the ginger cake in the bedroom is a nice touch. The location is ideal, just the right distance from Stornoway and the beach across the road is lovely. Margaret had some great tips for places to visit and also places to eat. We found eating out in Stornoway was superb. Every place we tried was of high quality with very reasonable prices. The eating places in Stornoway certainly put some of the places on the mainland to shame. Margaret was also kind enough to obtain an address and phone number for an old friend of my parents who I hadn't seen for at least 40 years.
I really can't understand some of the negative comments about Margaret. Our downstairs rooms were slightly cramped to be truthful but were comfortable and clean. The prices charged reflect value for money. I wish we could have stayed longer and I would certainly return.
