The decor is lovely and you receive all the usual luxury touches of somewhere 5* - giant bath, coffee machine, thick towels. There were a number of things we were pretty disappointed with, however. We noticed straight away that it wasn't super clean. There were crumbs under the coffee table that hadn't been swept, a bit of mould around the shower tray, dead bug on the floor and a stained oven. We had problems with the shower and a bulb was out in one of the lights. Not what you'd expect from a 5* stay. The good bits were the comfy bed, decor and good food in the Hotel Hebrides. And of course the island itself! I was astounded and the beaches were mindblowing. I will definitely be back to the Hebrides! Take the thickest jacket you can because it's also freezing up there! It's a handy location next to the ferry terminal (but that also means you do hear the ferry come and go which can be noisy in the mornings)..

We stayed here for 5 nights, using it as a base to tour the Outer Hebrides. Tarbert is well-placed to do so, and we covered most of Lewis and Harris, as well as a visit by ferry to the Uists and Benbecula. The accommodation was excellent- extremely clean and luxurious facilities. Everything in it was of high quality. We were not always able to have dinner in the hotel, largely because we didn’t book early enough each day, but there are other very good options available in Tarbert and, of course, the suite itself had excellent self-catering facilities. Breakfast in the hotel was delicious! I would highly recommend this place if you want something a bit special.

The Kirklea Island Suites are beautiful apartments over looking the bay at Tarbert. They have everything that you would need for for enjoyable stay on the island and are very tastefully decorated and are very spacious. We chose this hotel as a mini honeymoon and the hotel did provide some nice treats on our arrival which we appreciated. Unfortunately on arrival we did spot a sign at reception stating that due the construction works at the pier there many be some noise throughout the day. This was a bit disappointing as we had not been informed of this beforehand but we thought it can’t be that bad, oh how wrong we were. Early every morning they are literally chiselling through rock, which makes it impossible to sleep, this carries on for a few hours then stops, basically once they have made sure everyone in the town is awake! I have no idea how the residents in the hotel which is closer must have felt. I fully understand that this is not the hotels fault but we should have been informed about this before hand as this has really taken away from our enjoyment of the week. Overall I would have given the Kirklea Suites 5 stars but until the pier work is completed I unfortunately can only give it 4 stars due to location.

Very stylish suites extremely close to the ferry. Well designed with particularly beautiful bathroom with a large bath. Lovely Hebridean Soap company toiletries. Great coffee machine. Whole apartment very clean. Mattress a little too firm for my liking and I would have preferred a king bed instead of linked beds were you can feel the join. A guest booklet/information would have been very useful. We had no idea about bins, check-out time/procedure, contact numbers if there was any issues etc. It would also have been useful to have had priority booking opportunities as hotel guests in the hotel restaurant. We had great difficulty finding places to eat during our stay, I understand Covid making things difficult but some local information would have been useful. We would stay again as the suites were a great base for exploring this beautiful island.

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst on our Hop Scotch tour of the Islands. Luxury accommodation indeed, very modern, lovely decor/bedding/towels, very well equipped kitchen and loads of little extras. Only negative is that whilst only a short stroll from the hotel they are up a very steep hill and the stairs in the suite are very steep indeed and do not have a proper hand rail all the way up! Bit of a problem if you have any mobility issues but other wise the suites are excellent
