I agree with earlier reviews. The exterior needs a good makeover (costly, I know). I recognise the bit about your key being in an envelope on arrival and not seeing the proprietor (s)? Over a four night stay I think I might have seen them once but I'm not sure! Not a great fan of breakfast being in the fridge and not seeing other guests. This is a very light touch hoteliering! I enjoy being left to my own devices by and large but this was a bit more than I'm used to! Room was large and comfortable, centrally located. No complaints on the accommodation.
Stornoway's not a pretty place, it's a bit worn really, though I loved other parts of the Isles of Lewis and Harris. There aren't many bars or places to eat out in the town. Most bars are of the boozer type. I couldn't even take refuge in the Isle of Lewis British Legion as it has just closed permanently!
Stornoway's not ideal for island hopping. It has a newish ferry terminal but I could not seem to go anywhere from there except Ullapool on the mainland. Should have done some research in advance!
Enjoyed my stay, anyway, thanks. Stornoway sort of grew on me in the end!More
