Booked on-line and thought the cost was relatively high. Arrived shortly after 9.00 and during check-in I asked if i could go through for dinner. Told quite clearly that the restaurant had finished serving or taking new tables. Thought this was a little strange as the restaurant was clearly busy with diners at differing stages of their meal. If you are proclaiming to be one of the leading hotels in Stornoway you must surely be able to serve dinner to residents, at what in the rest of Europe, is just the time most people start their evening meal
All was not lost, the hotel provides a list of local restaurants and take aways... I wonder why!!! Canny Chinese family opened a great take away which is only 30 seconds walk from the reception. I wonder why they opened there.........
Waken up and start treating your guests who are regularly paying in excess of £100 for B&B with the hospitality that Scottish hotels should be known for,
Room was OK but nothing special, a little dated with huge plastic corner bath, fake gold taps and poor shower. Stick to what the budget chains offer, good powerful shower in very simple (and presumably less expensive) shower room.
Marked down due to not being able to have dinner at 9.15pm....
As an aside - I had a great stay in a small local bar/inn the night before in a diff part of the island and the owners couldn't have been more accommodating, even offering me supper from the bar menu at 9.30. That makes all the differnce. Small in most cases can be better
Would I stay again - No
