“Not a great feel, a bit rough around the edges and an overgrown scruffy garden.”

The location is great, near to beautiful beaches and walks also close enough to Stornoway. We have in the past stayed in cottages further afield, but thought we'd pick somewhere closer to Stornoway.
The cottage on first impressions was none inviting, overgrown garden, looked unkept on the outside. Tidy enough inside but felt very basic! No heating on when we arrived, fridge/freezer turned off, oven takes for ever to light!!!!
There is a way down too the beach from the cottage, which is a bonus. I carn't deny the location is great, but the cottage is over priced for what it is!

“Fantastic holiday on Lewis!”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Had a great week staying at Broadbay cottage. Fab location just a few minutes from Coll beach, which you can see from the garden. Only 10 minute drive to all the amenities Stornoway has to offer, and perfectly placed to explore the island.

Internet decent and have Netflix/Prime to while away the few hours of rain we had. Well equipped kitchen and great shower. Also had a high chair for junior!

Would highly recommend and will more than likely sty again.

“Fantastic stay, everything we needed ”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Thank you for a lovely stay at the Broadbay Cottage. This was our 10th stay in Stornoway and the cottage met all our needs.

Normally we stay more central in Stornoway, but the cottage is only a few minutes drive from centre of Stornoway. The Cottage was well equipped, rooms were spacious and the bonus if the beach at the end of the garden was a lovely surprise.

I'm sure you can get a bus to Stornoway, my son tried one day but was unsure of what bus stop to get on. Think more information on local transport would be good.

“Great Views”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Good location just a 10 minute drive from Stornoway. The house is warm and comfortable, it is well equipped and has an amazing shower - great water pressure.
We were met on arrival by the owner who showed us around and explained the heating and where everything was and how it worked.
There were only two of us but this would be a good house for children too. It has 3 good sized bedrooms.
Across the field at the foot of the garden is the beach, great for walks in the evening.
This house is well located for exploring both Lewis and Harris.
