We had a positive experience when we stayed in 2019. We booked again for May 2020 and encouraged some relatives to join us. Sadly the trip had to be cancelled due to Covid 19. When booking you need to give a 50% non-refundable deposit, so for a party of 5 for 2 nights, this was considerable sum. Government guidelines clearly indicated that in the case of cancillations due to Covid -19 "the CMA would expect a full refund to be offered if no service is provided". We offerred to transfer our booking to a later date, rather than seek a refund. Amhuinnsuidhe Castle have unfortunately not responded to our request. So, beware of expecting reasonable customer care and the 50% booking fee.

The lady in the front office was really friendly. Everything else about this hotel was really odd. The place is clearly someone’s house and is not set up as a hotel. There’s no reception (I walked around the dead silent castle for ten minutes before I found someone to check me in), the rooms have no keys, everyone sits at the same table, it’s full of family photos... so you feel like you’re a guest in someone’s house. But you don’t know them. And they aren’t there. The general atmosphere is one of unspokem imposition. It’s awkward and uncomfortable. Breakfast was good but no one greets you, you sit down at the table with other guests, in deathly silence and the staff are really hard to track down. A young American couple arrived, sat down and after feeling awkward for five minutes, left again having had no breakfast. I felt really sorry for them. It’s bizarre. Dinner is served at 8pm for everyone and because of the ferry times I missed it by half an hour. This was expected and they promoted me a cold platter on arrival instead. Given that I was charge a DB&B rate which includes a full four course dinner, the cold platter left in my room could have taken considerably more effort and I went to bed hungry. It was OK but it was a ploughman’s lunch and little replacement for what I’d paid for the four course dinner. They make a big thing of the ‘house ghost’ which is a weird thing to do for somewhere that is supposed to make you feel relaxed and homely. The staff (apart from the front office) are awkward and impersonal and the entire place is absolutely silent. It’s really, really odd. It desperately needs someone who knows how to run a boutique hotel and make people feel comfortable. I (and the American couple) checked out as soon as possible and breathed a sigh of relief. Someone said ‘I feel like i’ve just escaped from a surreal horror movie’. Probably not what a hotelier is aiming for. I realise that the Isle of Harris is extremely disconnected from the mainland but the things that are odd about this place are not effected by that. It has a weird atmosphere and nobody makes it feel welcoming or comfortable. It’s like you broke into a museum and now you plan on staying the night. I’m afraid I really wouldn’t recommend it.

Amhuinnsuidhe surpassed expectations in so many ways. The castle is beautiful and our room had a terrific view over the loch. Carol Ann was so friendly when making booking arrangements and gave us a very welcoming tour when we arrived. Afternoon tea delicious both days - served in the drawing room overlooking the loch, with binoculars supplied. Would be lovely for a long restful afternoon but there’s so much to do as well in the vicinity. If you swim there are steps down to the water which lead you straight into beautifully clear sea with a river running down to left hand side. Huishinish, further down the road has a spectacular beach and information centre and also marks the start of possibly the most beautiful walk we have ever had. Although some parts slightly strenuous, very walkable, track shoes fine. Dinner begins with drinks in the honesty bar at 7:30, meeting the other guests followed by delicious dinner both nights with lovely service. Great company too. Don’t hesitate, well worth it, for a very special time.

The castle is extremely comfortable with beautiful views. It is a privilege to be able to stay in what is essentially a family home. It is a home with a Renoir and a Chagall however, which makes it very special. The staff are helpful and charming and special mention must go to our ghillie Steve who tried so hard to enable us to get a fish. We were only able to catch a few brown trout but saw some wonderful salmon. The big fish are there but perhaps it was too early in the season! Dinner is served at 8pm and we enjoyed two great dinners and met some super people. I would have rated the castle a five but unfortunately our room was not made up or cleaned and when you are paying these prices that is a big oversight.
