We drove in for dinner, only another 2 tables were in use. We were served by a nice girl. It was down hill from the start, no diet cola. Then the basic menu, 5 different main meal choices. My husband chose the scallops and for main meal chicken, but they had no chicken left so we both chose steak ale pie. We sat around 40mins waiting on the main meal, when it arrived the girl apologised as they had only one portion left and that they would discount our meal as the split the portion between us topping it up with gravy and halved the pastry topping which look disgusting and placed on each plate with 4 very small potatoes 2 slices of carrot and one floret of cauliflour. When she left we were still in shock at what was on our plates. We got up and said to the girl we were leaving. She was very apologetic again. We paid for our drinks and not the meal. We won't be back and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Went back to our rented cottage and had pizza from Tesco, it was lovely.…
Stopped by at the Doune Braes for dinner as it was close to our campsite. The restaurant was pretty much empty when we got there but the waitress sat us immediately next to some other customers which was a) just a bit uncomfortable as we could hear their conversation just as much as they ours and b) probably not good practice with Covid. The menu was quite basic and standard fare. The starters were good. The main courses were very "beige". I'd ordered a burger and chips which was supposed to come with coleslaw; the coleslaw was absent and the contents of the burger sorely lacking in anything fresh e.g. lettuce or tomato.
Called in to their Pit Stop for a meal. No signs, directions at door. Sat down at a clean table (restaurant definitely not busy) no one came. Table nearby advised me to go to bar as service was very slow. Went to bar and after they decided to actually ask what I wanted (a menu) was told "they weren't taking people" . Won't be back.
Signed from road as pit stop but wouldn’t bother! 2 cups of instant coffee for £5 and it took us 10 mins to find someone to serve us. Keep going north to Bragar where there is a delightful cafe serving real coffee and tasty lunches. Wouldn’t recommend dounes as a place to stop.
I had an enjoyable 3 night stay at Doune Braes hotel. Eileen and her team are friendly and work hard. I needed to be near the Callanish Stones and Garenin Village for some photography and this hotel is mid way between the two. The hotel won't suit everyone as it is dated (1970s I would say!) and a bit dusty in places, and food is satisfactory rather than marvellous but I enjoyed it, met nice staff and regularly chatted with other guests who were very friendly. For anyone arriving on public transport the bus from Stornoway stops outside the hotel.
