“Luxury all the way!”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a fantastic find. Quality all the way from the greeting and some starter items to the farewell. This is a magnificently appointed croft conversion added to owners own accommodation. Quality furnishings, finishes, linen and crockery throughout. Ample Denby crockery and glasses, cutlery etc . Well appointed kitchen with cooker, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine etc. Centrally located on the outskirts of Stornoway but conveniently located for ferry, supermarkets etc. Good location from which to explore Lewis's many attractions.

“Everything we could have wished for”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Taigh Geal was everything we could have wished for. The apartment was beautifully decorated and furnished with taste and style at every turn. Luxury linens and carefully selected quality equipment made for a perfect stay.

Fiona and Finlay offered a warm and truly Hebridean welcome leaving delicious Shortbread and helpful fresh milk and bread to get us started.

Fiona and Finlay were on hand to willingly offer amiable and helpful advice without ever being intrusive.

Taigh Geal is just minutes from all Stornoway amenities, and is perfectly located to explore Lewis and Harris.

Staying at Taigh Geal is like having your own privileged window to Lewis and we could not recommend the apartment, Fiona and Finlay as hosts, and the Isle of Lewis highly enough.

“Perfection”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My title says it all, we could not fault this apartment. A great roomy property with all mod cons in Newvalley. A quiet croft area with great views but with easy access to Stornoway. Stornoway has all the amenities great sports centre, places to eat -we went to the Thai Cafe and Balti house as well as a Tesco and Coop if you want to cook. Fiona and Finlay gave us a great welcome with a welcome pack of the basics. The apartment has a shower room, library/dinning area and kitchen downstairs with a large lounge , shower room and bedroom upstairs.There was a patio area with 2 seats to enjoy the sunshine.Sky Tv , loads of books and wifi all wrapped up in great decor throughout (loved the A.J Barber picture!) and ample storage space.
