we were looked after like royalty from start to finish, everything provided right down to the last detail. Bed was very comfortable, and nice little touches in the room like a cabinet with complimentary snacks and a coffee machine, kettle etc. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!!

Stayed here for two nights and could have stayed longer. Ian and Marion were the perfect host. The location with views looking out to see from the large dinning area and lounge are wonderful. Our room was a good size with a king size bed which was very comfortable, with good quality line as well. The en-suite was very a...

This is an excellent guest house and both Ian and Marion are great hosts. They have thought of everything you would need. The standards are the highest and the breakfast is first class. A must if you are in the Western Isles.

We spent two nights at Broad Bay House during a tour of the Outer Hebrides. Of the four hotels we stayed in, this was by far the best. The views from the beautiful lounge are breath-taking. An evening spent watching the sea and the wildlife with a drink from the serve yourself bar was lovely.The breakfasts were excellent and nothing...

I was really looking forward to our three nights at Broad Bay House. It didn't disappoint. Marion and Ian provide outstanding bedrooms, dining room, and sitting room. The food they serve is amazing with a level of service to match. Broad Bay House provides a glorious view of the sea and it totally lives up to the advertised description "luxury...

We spent 4 nights at the Broad Bay Guest House, including a Sunday where we were treated to a delicious homestyle Sunday night dinner. The accommodations are stylishly understated and appropriate to the simplicity of the Isle. From the picture windows you can watch the tide move out making a home for seals and birds, as the sheep wander by....

An extremely well appointed guest house, with lots of additional items such as annotated OS maps and advice about places to visit.Great central space with honesty bar and telescope, there was also ground coffee and cafetieres and snacks in the room. But the number of rather narrow rules and meal timings make the experience less relaxing than it might be.

Dear NormanCarpet Thank you for your review - we're delighted that you thought Broad Bay House was a great place to stay on your Outer Hebrides tour. We're a bit surprised about your comment on narrow rules - really not sure what you mean, so its difficult for us to take constructive action to address. Perhaps you would drop us...
