As I sat in Ullapool waiting for the ferry, having been lashed by wind and rain on my motorbike journeying from Inverness, I was trying to find somewhere to stay in Stornaway. The choices were pretty limited due to the current situation, but thankfully the Hebridean Guest House had a room available. I arrived at about 8pm, fairly moist, Linda’s welcome was very warm and she was thankfully not put off by my appearance. She showed me to my large, warm and comfortable room. Having travelled 530 miles and then the ferry journey, the comfort of the bed and a hot shower was just what I needed. An extra bonus was the heated towel rail that enabled me to try out clothing and boots from my journey! The breakfast was fabulous and if you haven’t had Stornaway Black Pudding, you really should (unless you are a veggy, or Vegan obviously) It was a great base for touring round the island and the position 5 mins walk from Stornaway centre made it an ideal spot. I would highly recommend the Hebridean Guest House to anyone wishing to visit the islands.…
We were so lucky! After a night of camping in high winds and rain, I phoned Hebridean Guesthouse and Linda went out of her way to provide our family with a room. What a lovely safe haven! They provide every room with absolutely everything you might need as an overnight guest - from a firm bed, to coffee making facilities and a nice hot shower. Even though Linda has been doing this for thirty odd years, she still has time and a smile for everyone. Breakfast was super, and consisted of hot and cold options. The full English with its perfectly poached egg kept us full all day. Thank you!
Smart premises with clean rooms and large bathroom and power shower. Close to centre of town and within 5 minute drive of ferry terminal. Friendly owners. Super breakfast. Street parking within a minutes walk. Highly recommended.
Visited the Isles of Harris and Lewis for the inaugural Marathon Hebrides, opted to stay in Stornoway as a base of operations. Hebridean House was perfectly located and the staff were more than accommodating, helpful, and made me feel at home. Close enough in Stornoway to walk everywhere and an excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.
Its not easy finding a good base in remote areas when away on business but I'll always be staying here when I return to the islands. Great reception from Kevin, warm bedroom despite cold weather outside, comfy bed, great shower and good breakfast each day with great coffee The lounge had a good fire and a good selection of books to borrow See you in April 2020! Its in a quieter area of Stornaway with a fifteen minute stroll into town. Street parking close by
