“Perfection”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My title says it all, we could not fault this apartment. A great roomy property with all mod cons in Newvalley. A quiet croft area with great views but with easy access to Stornoway. Stornoway has all the amenities great sports centre, places to eat -we went to the Thai Cafe and Balti house as well as a Tesco and Coop if you want to cook. Fiona and Finlay gave us a great welcome with a welcome pack of the basics. The apartment has a shower room, library/dinning area and kitchen downstairs with a large lounge , shower room and bedroom upstairs.There was a patio area with 2 seats to enjoy the sunshine.Sky Tv , loads of books and wifi all wrapped up in great decor throughout (loved the A.J Barber picture!) and ample storage space.

“Highly recommended; lovely and very well equipped apartment”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Excellent apartment in the outskirts of Stornoway. It is located on route to the Butt of Lewis and is a 2 minute drive away from a large Coop/6 minute drive from city centre. The apartment is brand new and is very well-equipped. You get a very large living space, a dining area, one bedroom with a double bed (king or double king with an excellent mattress), a kitchen and 2 (!) bathrooms (one downstairs bathroom with electric shower and an en suite with power shower). The kitchen has all necessary tools (toaster, cooker, oven, dishwasher, kettle, etc.) all in very good condition. The apartment offers a huge selection of books, a couple of DVDs (satellite tv/Sky and a DVD player are provided) and has 2 folders with loads of information about Harris/Lewis. Finally, a special mention to the view from the supersize window in the living space, overlooking meadows and the peninsula in the distance.

Fiona and her husband are very welcoming and laid back. In the unlikely event you need anything, just give them a shout and they'll get it sorted. I would highly recommend this location to any couple looking for a high quality place to stay in Stornoway.

PS. ignore Bing maps; this is not correct. Ask Fiona to send you directions to the apartment or look up the address rather than the apartment name.

“A lovely clean, warm, comfortable home”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We had a wonderful week staying at 'Taigh Geal'. The proprieters were so friendly and helpful and gave us a true Hebridean welcome. The house was very comfortable, clean and warm. The upstairs living room was tastefully furnished and the large window gave us a superb view looking over to the Minch. We loved our bedroom, we slept so well on the comfy bed and it was so quiet and peaceful at night ! 'Taigh Geal' was a good base - just outside Stornoway for all the facilities, shops and restaurants, and with our car we could easily explore all of Lewis and Harris from here. Definitely want to go back and use 'Taigh Geal' again !

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Dalmore Cottage. It is very spacious and well layed out. The bed in the master bedroom was very cosy. The house has all appliances you need. We felt very welcomed as soon as we walked in. Dalmore Cottage is situated on one of the main roads which made it very easy to go on day trips on Lewis and Harris. There is a beautiful beach very close to the cottage in Dalmore village. The landlady is very friendly and provided good instructions on how to get there and things to do. Dalmore cottage is signed up on other webstites, too. You might find it easier to contact her there as we had issues with holiday lettings (trip advisor) to transfer our messages.

This is not the same property. TripAdviser have wrongly allocated this review to the wrong property. Dalmore cottage is a different property.
