“Outstanding hospitality with attention to detail and quality”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a lovely rental property! The quality of the furnishings and fittings, and the attention to detail was excellent. We were greeted by the landlady who provided tea and cake on our arrival, and then showed us two salmon platters that she had left for us in the fridge as well as a cake that she had baked for us. She was extremely hospitable throughout, without being in the least bit too overbearing, and we were delighted to be invited into her house on our last night to join her and her husband for drinks and a chat. We learned a lot that night about crofting and the way of life of the people of Lewis.
A thoroughly enjoyable week.

“Well-equipped apartmernt with attentive hosts in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Rhoda ensured that our stay was exceedingly comfortable. She was always available to answer our questions and made sure that we had all we needed. She was generous making us feel that we had come to a special place. We were well positioned to walk to a beautiful beach and reach many other wonderful places by car. The apartment is very well equipped and was always cosy. It was the extra small touches that made all the difference. Thank you, Rhoda and Neil

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Sheila, myself and our daughters two Westies enjoyed a fantastic week in the cottage. The cottage is tastefully decorated and right from the welcome we received from Rhoda on booking in we enjoyed an idyllic week. The owners have exactly the right attitude in that they will leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace but are always available if required.

On arrival we were presented with fresh and smoked salmon in the fridge, fresh flowers and fruit and Rhoda's famous banana loaf. All were very much appreciated and half way through our stay we were brought fresh mackerel caught that day together with some delicious home made cake. They do go the extra mile in making guests welcome and we enjoyed drinks with Rhoda and Neil in their cottage on the last night and heard some wonderful music from their dearly departed son Innis.

We couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough.

p.s. Rhoda - Sheila is still tickled pink with the Harris hand bag you gave her. Many, many thanks for everything.
