“Love this flat!”
Reviewed September 11, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This flat is a great place to stay while in Stornoway. The owner was great and met us at the door with a pint of milk for our 1st cup of tea! The location is absolutely convenient .... close to the town Center, quiet and easy to access with good offstreet parking. And, 5 minutes walk to the BEST fish and chips!!! The furnishings are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could ask for and more. I would definitely stay here again. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a self catering cottage in Stornoway.

“Best place in town!”
Reviewed October 27, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Absolutely perfect accommodation right in the centre of town. Great for families or a group of friends. Lovely, helpful owners who even stopped by to check everything was going well with our stay. Highly recommended and will definitely book this place again the next time we are in Stornoway. Thank you!

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Unfortunately this rental was extremely disappointing.
I will deal with the plus points first: owners easy to deal with, very central for everything in Stornaway, had to call the owner with a very minor problem that was rectified with 20 minutes. Met both of them and they were really nice.
Unfortunately for us the minus points out weight the plus. In severe need of refurbishment if the goal is for people looking for holiday acomodation, I gather there are workers stay from time to time and can't blame the owners for wanting to rent out their property to the max as holiday season is limited but unfortunately it is obviously in great need if a major amount of upgrading. The shower is dreadful, couldn't get the shampoo out of my hair. In parts walls partially painted and stopped hence 2 different colours. Carpets badly in need of a good scrub, looked like workers had been in with dirty boots over a few months.
I am really sorry if my review seems cruel but touring Scotland over 17 days with friends from Canada it was a real let down. Some upgrading would really make a difference.

I am very sorry that you found our Stornoway flat so awful,as we have such positive comments from other visitors. We do know that some updating is needed, but this is reflected in the price we charge for a property in the centre of town. I intend upgrading the kitchen and bathroom over the winter and have already painted the kitchen when we had a few days between lets. The hall walls had become so marked that I painted up as far as the first landing but then ran out of time, however I considered that this would be acceptable as a temporary measure, as not all landings are the same colour I intend to paint the entire flat in the next few months ready for next season. Any other suggestions would be gratefully received. .

“Fantastic, Convenient Flat with Amazing & Accommodating Owners”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I stayed from July 2-15 & 18-26. The place was large, efficient, clean and convenient. The shower had good pressure and the water got very hot and the shows were comfy. All of the kitchen equipment was easy to use. The flat was convenient to a grocery store, shopping and all of downtown Stornoway, including the ferry. Tony and Sue were so accommodating. They already had a booking for the 15, 16, & 17th, but offered me a beautiful beach cottage that they are about to list separately and actually moved my things over and back. They could not have been more helpful and I have already booked again for next summer! They really are the best owners I have rented from over multiple flats and I will definitely choose them when given the choice.

“Relaxing Holiday in Lewis and Harris Based in Stornoway”
Reviewed April 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was an excellent house as a centre for exploring Lewis and Harris. Right in the centre of Stornoway, very handy for all amenities and close to the ferry terminal if travelling from Ullapool and not too long a journey if coming from Tarbert in Harris. We were very comfortable in this house and surprised that although in the town centre the situation was quiet with little traffic passing the house. My daughter and grand daughter also stayed for part of the fortnight we had booked and with two double bedrooms and a twin single this worked out well for us.
Despite us sailing over on the late ferry from Tarbert and arriving at the back of 9 pm, the owner Tony was there to welcome us and show us round and the house was nice and warm when we arrived.
