This place is wonderful. The view of the Loch are great. Room and Bath clean and modern. Could not locate on my GPS but easy to find about one mile out for Tarbert on the road to Stornoway. Wish I could have stayed longer.

The hostess is very welcoming and gave some good recommendations of things to do. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was...

The bathroom is modern and immaculate. We were so appreciative of the home comforts provided in the room: complimentary home baked cake slices and lots of...

A property where the owner has taken great care to make everything, comfortable and easy for the guest, it makes such a difference and really shows she cares. Lovely double room for single occupancy, many of the other places weren't prepared to offer a single rate. Spacious, comfortable room with a view over the water. Lovely breakfast. Sorry I was...

My mum, my husband, and I stayed here the night before our verrrrrry early ferry ride over to Skye. Lovely views, and Arlene, the proprietress, was kind enough to provide us with a veritable cornucopia of crackers, cheeses, granola bars, cookies (sorry, biscuits), and things to tide us over since we had to leave before 6AM to catch the ferry,...

Very nice B&B, very clean and comfortable. The hostess Arlene was friendly and made us feel at home. We had a small room but fine for the three days we were staying. Breakfast is HUGE, it kept us going till well after lunch. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed one night prior to an early ferry back to the mainland. Arlene gave us a very friendly welcome to her home - we had a small room ( but knew this in advance) and it was perfect for one night - good sized ensuite with bath and shower and all sorts of extras included. Arlene provided a huge breakfast...

Had a very enjoyable night here while touring the Outer Hebrides. Hostess, Arlene made us feel at home from the second we stepped through her door. Our room was gorgeous, overlooking the loch, and had everything we could have asked for. The ensuite was lovely, with plenty of toiletries provided. For the benefit of anyone who reads an earlier review...
