Broad Bay House
Luxury 5-Star accommodation by the sea
What sets us apart
Your Home Away From Home
Broad Bay House is owned and run by Sue and Tom and we share your passion for traveling and exploring. Service, simplicity and style are at our core; when you book a stay with us, you’re guaranteed to have an extraordinary experience. From the moment you walk in the door, you’ll feel the special Broad Bay House hospitality.
2022 will be Broad Bay House's 16th season welcoming guests to our wonderful chain of islands, and we are delighted to be maintaining our reputation as one of the best places to stay in the Outer Hebrides. We are very proud to be the only 5-star VisitScotland accredited Bed and Breakfast in the Outer Hebrides. Purpose designed and built as a spacious luxury guest house, Broad Bay House is based on a traditional island design, equipped and decorated to a high quality contemporary style.
The location itself is worth the 5-star rating, just a few miles north of Stornoway in a small working crofting community, and adjacent to a sweeping sandy beach with direct access from the house to the shore. On a clear day, the Scottish highlands can be seen across the Minch. We are perfectly located in the middle of the island and are therefore an ideal base for exploring both Lewis and Harris.
Inside there are four spacious luxury en-suite guest rooms. All bedrooms are equipped with a flat screen Smart TV, a Bose Bluetooth speaker and DVD player. In addition, each room has a Nespresso machine, complimentary snacks and luxury toiletries. Outside each bedroom is a personal decking area, with seating. Soft colours, natural woods and sympathetic furnishings provide a relaxing environment.
Other free guest facilities include Wi-Fi, a guest laundry and a guest study. Throughout you will find fresh flowers, and complimentary treats. The house is fully licensed, and has a wide ranging and interesting wine, gin and malt whisky list. Do have a look at our gin cocktails! A highlight of the house is the large guest dining/lounge which has a vaulted ceiling and windows on three sides, providing lovely views of the coast and local wildlife, while a solid fuel stove makes life cosy when the weather demands.
We feel Broad Bay House is one of the finest places to stay in the Outer Hebrides with its unique blend of luxury accommodation, fine food and wine and an outstanding coastal location. If you need any further details, please do ask and we look forward to welcoming you to our home.
Warmest regards, Sue and Tom
Food and Drink
Local, fresh, island sourced
We received one of the first Visit Scotland "Taste our Best" food awards in 2013 for our use of the great Outer Hebrides local produce, and that award has been repeated every year since. We pride ourselves on high quality food, based on local ingredients, and we source fresh ingredients from the islands whenever possible. Breakfast is a relaxed and leisurely affair where you can enjoy food freshly cooked to order whilst enjoying the view. Breakfast is served in the dining room between 8 and 9.15 am. There is an extensive continental option followed by a freshly cooked Scottish menu with many options. Do have a look at the menu in our Eat & Drink section
For those arriving between 3pm and 5pm, complementary tea & coffee with homemade cake or tray bake is served in the guest lounge where you can relax after your journey.
