“Excellent Accommodation-Lovely Area of Town”
Reviewed June 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our 2nd stay at Westview,we just love it,so very local especially if you enjoy walking,only a 10 min walk to the Castle Grounds which is a must see walk,especially " round the creed", so uplifting,peaceful and wonderful unspoilt nature. The accommodation is perfect,so homely,and Etta,the owner is so very helpful and nothing to much of a bother,enjoyed the breakfast left , it is a must to try out the Stornoway black pudding, delicious as is the steak mince!! Hopefully,back next year. Thanks Etta.

Stayed at the Westview for a family wedding, lovely clean appartment with all the facilities required, 10 minutes walk to the harbour and shops / restuarants, large Co-op 2 minutes away, the owner is very friendly and was in contact to make sure everything was okay, also had left a welcome pack with breakfast goodies etc.
If we return we will book again.

“Excellent standard of accommodation and perfect location.”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were visiting for the weekend for a christening and needed somewhere to stay - it was like a home from home and within walking distance of town. The flat was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and the starter pack which included food was perfect for night time snacks and breakfast - thank you Henrietta for making us so welcome.

“Excellent location and fantastic, friendly & helpful owners”
Reviewed July 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The apartment was very comfortable and warm. A perfect location - just far enough out of town to be quiet, but close enough to walk to everything. Very close to major supermarket. It is an upstairs apartment and very private. Good wifi available at a small extra cost. Nothing was any trouble for the owners, who met us and settled us in straight away.They maintained a good level of contact throughout our stay. They also told us about events that were happening in the region that we may not have been aware of - like the Red Arrows display flights over the harbour. Fantastic.
