This is not a hotel you should visit its dirty and out of date the thing is they have no competition and people are always looking for accommodation they don't have to try.

The downside-the dinner menu does not change by more than one item per day. The upside is that certain items are good and in the case of the lobster bisque excellent. That said there are some oddities Liver and Onion features decent lamb's liver but no gravy,best stick to the fresh fish which is excellent,either breaded or battered precede it... More

The last time we visited food wise it was average. Totally different. Starter of fresh Crab claws outstanding quantity quality and value. Braised cheeks fell apart delicious. Other 2 courses very good. One mark off as no time between starter and main needed to relax tummy after starter. Staff very pleasant. We'd return.

Decided to visit here for a lunch thinking we would get a real taste of the Hebridean life, what a shock and waste of time thinking that was! One member of our party ordered prawn Marie rose baked potato, we'll have a look at the photo and see how this was dished up! Other member orders tuna panini, the tuna... More

On an extended summer break, visited all eateries in North and South Uist. Lochboisdale Hotel comes top of my list, staff extremely nice, dining room clean, waiting staff could teach customer skills to other establishments. Food nicely presented with ample portions, reasonably priced. A truly wonderful dining experience

The restaurant in Lochboisdale Hotel is the only place offering evening meals if staying overnight in the village for the early morning ferry. Therefore it has no competition and gets away with little effort. The place generally needs an upgrade as the decor and furniture are very tired. The food on offer is the general pub fare found everywhere but... More

There is little choice of places to eat in the area. The Lochboisdale hotel offered nice food with decent service. As non residents we could not eat in the more pleasant residents lounge. The fish pie was very good as was the mac and cheese. The meals were good value.

We had 4 evening meals here and found the food to be a good standard for pub food. We sat in the conservatory which is much brighter than the bar area and you get a good view into the bay. The staff were very pleasant in all our visits and we would have no hesitation in going back in the... More
