This is an old established hotel in the classic style, well appointed in the centre of Stornaway. Our room was of a good size and comfortable with a wardrobe, tv, desk and armchairs and with furnishings which would originally have been very plush. The bathroom...More

We stayed for a couple of nights early September 2018. Rooms comfortable with a great view of the harbour and Lews Castle. Staff helpful and positive. Dinner menu was varied and of high standard both nights. Only draw back was parking a bit limited.

Centrally located and easily accessible - next to the harbor. Breakfast was included in our package and was fine, nothing fancy. Amazingly, we asked about laundry and the housekeeping staff took everything, washed it and returned it the next day, without charge. Thats going above...More

Most pleasant and excellent meal of Seafood Platter, at £19! Unbelievable value, consisting of very varied seafood and of such quantity, that I was glad that I did not have a starter. Staff most obliging and helpful. Going back tonight!

Stornoway's most historic hotel, the Royal nestles in the heart of Stornoway, beside the marina, where you can relax, enjoy the hotel's cosy character and enjoy dining in our Boatshed Restaurant or in HS1, the ...More town's 1st cafe bar.If on business, you'll probably appreciate free wireless internet access available throughout the hotel.What matters so much more than bricks and mortar, though, is the warmth of the welcome and the friendly, easy service you'll receive - for the Hebrides has a great tradition of hospitality.While the Royal Hotel enjoys a delightful view over the colourful, bustling harbour to the splendour of Lews Castle and its grounds. The town centre is only around 200 metres walk. Less

This is a pretty basic hotel. It's not decorated in any particularly Scottish way with the exception of tartan cloth bed decorations.
