Positive Reviews

Lovely staff and service

The friendly people that work at this hotel do extend a warm island welcome to everyone that visits. They are extremely polite and love to help out the guests with tips and advice on getting around the islands.

Very cosy rooms

The rooms have been remodeled in recent years, and you'll find that they are of a very high standard. There's everything you'll need during your stay right there in the room and all of it in perfect condition. The beds are soft and comfy but might be a little too soft for some.

Delicious bar food

The food served in the restaurant is far beyond the usual pub grub fare you come to expect from small places like this. Everything is cooked to order and tastes like real home cooked food. And not only that but it's very reasonably priced.

Negative Reviews

A little noisy

The Bothy Bar is a great place to have a drink and enjoy some music, but if your room is too close to the bar, you may have to wait a long time before the place quietens down. If you're a light sleeper, you might want to pack your earplugs.

No further issues reported

So far, there has been no further negative opinion expressed about this hotel.
