This is a terrific guest house, and we could not rate it highly enough. Quite easy to find, just past the airport, we managed to find it in the dark and with a howling gale. The owner, Donald, is extremely friendly and helpful, taking time to chat with us, giving us tips about where to take our dog for walks,... More

We stayed here one night, The room was clean and comfortable, and also the bathroom was very large and clean (the bathroom has also a windows, not so common in all the B&B we stayed) The view from the room window is really amazing. And Donald is a very nice person to talk with. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night after arriving at our pre booked b&b to discover they had double booked! Donald was very helpful and we had a comfortable nights sleep and a plentiful breakfast. The property although a little out of Stornaway has lovely sea views towards the Isle of Skye. The room was well equipped with everything you could... More

Such a homely place with very attentive owner. The rooms are clean and tidy if a little 'tired' but Duncan makes his guests feel so welcome and special. A good place to stay on the outskirts of the town, with great views across the harbour

We were very pleased at the size and comfort of our upstairs double room facing the sea, which included an en suite bathroom, a couch and a table for two in addition to the comfy bed. The heating system worked well and was much welcomed during our stay. Location is fairly close to town (a few miles), but one would... More

Stayed there for 2 nights.It's about 10 mins drive from the airport - very easy to find from the directions given on booking.com. When I arrived there was no one there (I did not see the note from the owner since I did not get in the house). So decided to go visit Lewis island instead - Butt of Lewis,... More

We stayed three enjoyable nights. Very nice room, good view of the water. We enjoyed breakfast and visiting with the other guests during breakfast. Our host was congenial and informative. The house is quiet (we were told that town could be noisy).

We stayed in a suite behind the main guest house. It included a conservatory, sitting room, kitchenette and one bedroom. The suite was spacious, clean and comfortably furnished. We made a reservation thinking that we would stay in a regular B&B room but got the suite. Holm View served the usual huge Scottish breakfast, which was good. The host, Donald... More
