“Excellent hotel with good food and superb service”
Reviewed 3 August 2010

Arrived late but the staff ensured that we had a good late dinner and relaxing time in lounge. Apart from it's slightly out-of-town position I could not fault this hotel. In room facilities also excellent.

Sayed at the hotel for 4 day, from the moment we arrived the staff and service was great. We were given a family room although only booked a double. The room was bright and clean the bed was comfortable.

Location of the hotel was great for touring the island or leave the car and walk around Stornaway and check out the other local facilities. If you stay at this hotel you must treat yourself to meal in the Solar restaurant the food is amazing and rather large portions. We even tried the Light Bite menu and found the portions very generous.

Would like to thank all the staff for a great stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone, would definatley stay there again.

We stayed for one night in the Caberfeidh, and thought it was a pleasant hotel, with good food, a good bed and nice staff. Our first thought on arrival was that the entrance was a bit scruffy, but the following day renovation was starting on it, as we left. One or two other areas still need a lttle attention, but the attitude of the staff was first class, and we would stay again.
We did think it rather expensive, but did not compare it with other Stornoway hotels, so cannot really comment.

As a large group we arrived around 7.30 pm but the Reception staff were so welcoming. The food was first class and nothing too much trouble for them. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean.

The public areas of the hotel were clean and spacious. Drinks at the bar were very reasonable compared to the prices some hotels think they are entitled to charge!

The whole atmosphere of the hotel and staff was very relaxed and we enjoyed our 2 night stay. Would certainly recommend this place and would happily return.

I went with friends to the Pudding Night which the Cabarfeidh Hotel was promoting this week. For little over a fiver each we were treated to as much delicious pudding cuisine as we could manage, a superb display of deserts and fruit and veg sculpting and a demonstration by two of the chefs on how to carve flowers etc out of carrots and beetroot! It was excellent. The staff were on the ball, welcoming, professional and nothing was too much trouble.
The whole team had gone to an enormous amount of trouble to make the evening work and it idid. Well done to the Cabarfeidh. I should imagine that Stornoway is buzzing today with talk of last night's 'Pudding Club' debut.
And as if all that delicious confectionary wasn't enough on the night, the staff prvided doggie bags for anyone wanting to take home a selection of their offerings. I say again, well done.

This hotel needs a good cleaning but the front desk service was excellent, the room was nice and quiet, and the buffet breakfast was great

Exterior suggests tired corporate box. Inside it could do with a lick of paint too. However, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the restaurant good. Definitely better than first impressions suggest.
