I have been visiting the hotel for many years and to stay on the last night of the season was great . The hotel goes from strength to strength and the constant reinvestment by the owners is evident each year. Lovely bathrooms and an extension of the seaside interpretation is stylish and tasteful .The hotel was full and had a... More

We just spent a couple of nights at this hotel as part of a package holiday. What a fabulous place to stay. The views are amazing. The rooms are tastefully decorated. The food is good as was the service. The staff and that includes the owners are easy to deal with. If they can they will help you with anything... More

Stayed with my wife for two nights in mid August. We very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was comfortable, had a great view over the beach, nice meals and a friendly atmosphere. Hotel is in a good position to explore Barra and the surrounding islands. Would be very happy to visit again.

One definition of a good hotel is an establishment which is hospitable to residents and non-residents alike. This establishment does not even nearly meet that basic standard. We were staying in nearby cottages for a week in July. We thought how handy it would be to have a hotel within walking distance, to have evening drinks or a meal. Sadly,... More

I stayed here with a coach party for one night. Hotel is in a great location right by the beach which is fabulous for a bracing walk. Evening meal was from a set menu and was very nice. Room was comfortable and nicely decorated, bathroom shower wasn't the best interns of pressure but was more than adequate. Would recommend staying... More

The hotel has gorgeous views over the Atlantic Ocean and a beautiful, sandy beach; this alone makes this a great place to stay. The quirky building, creaking noisily at every footfall, gives opportunities for more of these views, and the nautically themed, rather rustic decor provides plenty to see indoors also. Everything seemed clean and bright, but the bedhead radios... More

Such nice people run this hotel and invite their guests to be comfortable and at home here. Ask for a sea view room and you cannot be disappointed. Turquoise arcs of surf wash up onto a white sand beach and break in breath taking white lace necklaces. The lounge and dining room also have large windows to take in the... More

We thought we had landed in paradise. Beautiful location which was reflected in the expensive price. Only to find the bathroom bin was filled with the previous guests embarrassing personal & used items! As there are no phones in the room I took the bin down to reception to highlight the issue.
