We stayed in 'St.Kilda' Room which has views of the car park, for 3 nights during a trip of the Outer Hebrides and Isle of Skye. The host 'Farky' greeted us with a warm welcome, he is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, for recommendations for eating out and local attractions. The guest house has a very 'homely' feel to it, it is staying in his private home. There are no locks on the bedroom doors from the outside, and the front door is not always locked. The room was nicely presented with an en suite shower room, bonus here of lovely large bath towels! tea and coffee making facilities and a TV. The bed was very comfortable and a good size, the room was lovely and warm. The wifi code was on the wall but we couldn't get it to work. It was peaceful and quiet most of the time. There was nearby petrol station, shop and restaurant. It is also near to the ferry harbour for people wanting to travel to Uist. The guest sitting room was upstairs, with a balcony with loch view which was nice. The host has two dogs, which are very friendly. The only negatives we found was that the breakfast dinning area is in the hosts private lounge, which felt slightly odd, as all their personal things were there. I dropped my serviette on the floor at breakfast and it was covered in dog hairs when I picked it back up - the dogs were not in the lounge during breakfast but it could have done with a clean before guests use this area when dining. The breakfast choice was average there was egg, cereal, toast and porridge (which was nice) on the menu, the portions were large. The Scottish breakfast choice was limited to meat and eggs. It would have been really nice to have beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc, for people like me who prefer less meat at breakfast. As we stay in many B&B's each summer while visiting the Hebrides, we found the price excessive for this stay compared to other B&B's that we have stayed in of a similar standard or better. We really liked Farky and thought he could do with a day off, or a rest, and have some support or help with the general running of the place, although he was very accommodating, we could see he was rushing around trying to do everything.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms had a view of the loch.

Very nice B&B, room was spotless, fluffy towels and we were given a very warm welcome. Great location for our cycling, just a two minute cycle from the ferry. The owner gave us a lift to the local restaurant which was very kind, and much appreciated after a long day on the bikes!
Slightly over priced in my opinion.
Food was outstanding as was the friendly service.
Highly recommend

Great hotel in the countryside of Lewis & Harris. Very scenic drive out to the hotel and peaceful little town surrounding it. Room was very comfortable and the hosts was friendly. We left too early for breakfast (had to catch the ferry back).

Also, no joke, the towels were extremely pleasant.

Based on their website we were prepared to be impressed. The first impression on entering was a hall cluttered with cardboard boxes and a vacuum cleaner. We were given an attic room on the first floor with the most compact ensuite with shower we have ever seen. . No room to hang bath towels which had to go on a rail in the open plan wardrobe. Apart from hitting your head on the sloping ceiling, to view the loch you had to go to the Velux roof window the other side of a spare single bed in order to see out to the loch . Only one bedside light but sloping ceiling made reading in bed uncomfortable. The guest lounge was outside the room so was not ideal from a noise point of view. The breakfast was fine and the view through from the private lounge was great. Our host was pleasant and friendly. But for £120 a night was exorbitant compared to the superior accommodation for which we paid £70 a night just up the road.

We stayed here for a few nights last year as a base for our trip from Leverbugh to St Kilda.

Grimisdale was a good place to stay, very comfortable, friendly host, good breakfast and in a convenient position, not far from the ferry from Berneray. It was possible to walk to the pier and also to the Anchorage restaurant at the pier.

We had a good trip to St Kilda with Sea Harris, although the weather could have been better. Our host, Farky, from Grimisdale provided us with sandwiches for our trip as we did not have an opportunity to get them elsewhere.

Grimisdale is also a good base to discover the south of Harris and visit the beautiful beaches there and we would certainly stay there again if we are ever in that area.
