“A nice little oasis in a barren landscape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2009

We stayed at Temple View for two nights during a tour of the Outer Hebrides in May 2008. It is located in quite a remote area, but makes a good stopping off point for visiting places of local interest such as nature reserves etc. There are far reaching views towards the sea across the flat lands to the front of the hotel, with spectacular sunsets when the weather conditions are right. There are pleasant walks across fields to the temple from which the hotel derives its name.

Harvey and June were very welcoming, and the room and bathroom well appointed and spotlessly clean.

The hotel facilities are good, there being a small guest lounge where the upholstery on the settees can be described as 'very generous' (easy to sink into but hard to get up from!). There is a small bar adjoining the dining area where you can relax with a drink. They had just had wireless internet installed at the time of our visit but, contrary to expectation, the signal didn't reach our room (Harvey was going to call the installers back as he had been assured all rooms would have good reception), and I had to retire to the lounge with the laptop to get a good signal. Hopefully this minor shortcoming will have been rectified long ago.

We "ate in" on both nights, there being only very limited choice of eateries in this sparsely populated area. The food was very good and, although not cheap, was not unreasonably priced. Breakfasts were excellent.

Although not cheap, even by Hebridean standards, we would definitely return there and felt we had had reasonable value for money.
