I would have rated this property a five star experience but for a couple of niggles.

First the good though. Easy to book, with excellent communications. Met on arrival and shown all the features of the apartment. Everything in tip-top condition and very comfortable. For a self-contained apartment nothing major was missing. Dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and deep freeze, Twlevision/Sky with plenty of channels including sports, and attractive decor.

Couple of other huge pluses were free wifi and excellent off street parking.

The niggles? Cairn Dhu House is not alone in this in the UK, but why can't accommodation providers supply face cloths/flannels? More annoying though was the request to vacate the room by 9.00am on check out day. Pretty early by anyone's standards. To be fair, we were advised at check in that it was needed early on our check out day for other guests. A bit of a surprise- surely better to let us know before we turned up? I guess I should have objected to the request at check in but did not feel that was really possible.

That said, good location and easy walk to town and attractions. Overall, we would certainly recommend to others. I'm sure the 9am checkout would not be the norm?

“Complete home from home”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This apartment is the best one we've been in. It is very comfortable and peaceful (yet extremely central for all facilities). It is like being in a private house rather than a self-catering unit.

Good parking but within easy walking distance of all facilities. There is a large Co-op store nearby for provisions.

Well equipped and very tastefully decorated.

Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst touring the Islands. We were met by Joanne on our arrival as Ken was away on holiday. Joanne gave us a very warm welcome and showed us around the apartment. She also provided us with information on places to eat, etc.
The apartment is on the ground floor (flat 2) and has recently been refurbished. The sitting room is very well fitted, has a flat screen TV and free Wi-Fi. A DVD player together with a selection of DVDs is also available. The sofa folds down to make another bed if required. One thing though I have to say that the old looking rocking chair looks very much out of place in such a modern apartment!
The bathroom is fitted to a high standard with good quality fittings with both a bath and separate shower cabinet. Towels and soaps, etc. are also of a high standard.
The bedroom has a large comfortable bed and again the linens are of a high standard. It is ideally situated with free parking available to the rear of the property and only 5 minutes from the town centre.
The kitchen had all the usual things you would have at home from fridge,/freezer, cooker, microwave, etc. Although when we were there I think the washing machine was still to be plumbed in. Not something we required so not an issue.
The flat has a gas fire in the sitting room and gas central heating throughout. Easy to operate and heats the rooms very quickly.
In summary, a modern refurbished apartment in a great location and would recommend if you are in Stornoway.
