Customer Reviews


Fantastic place to stay

Fantastic place to stay. Spotlessly clean, well-stocked kitchen and great location. Anna was a pleasure to communicate with and kept in touch with us during the stay. Having every room with an ensuite bathroom was fantastic as all 3 couples had privacy to get ready for the wedding we were attending. We were amazed by the personal and thoughtful touches. A beautiful welcome pack with bread, milk and goodies. We will certainly be recommending the property to anyone else who is visiting the island. Thanks, Anna

Anna’s place is one of those places you find and feel like you have won the jackpot

Anna's place is one of those places you find and feel like you have won the jackpot 🙂 The place is well laid out, with every possible need anticipated, including a thorough guest book packed with information about the area. There are bathrooms a plenty all with great water pressure and hot water. Anna was very communicative and helpful beyond measure. She had a lovely welcome basket and there were even chocolates on the beds! We are greatly looking forward to another visit to the island and we will be staying here when we do!

Anna was very easy to get in touch with and very helpful with her advice

This is a refurbished townhouse near the heart of Stornoway. It is in walking distance of the majority of Stornoway's cultural exhibits, restaurants, and pubs. The furnishings are modern and new. As with many older buildings, the stairs were a bit narrow and steep but did not present any problems. Netflix on the TV was a welcome plus. Anna was very easy to get in touch with and very helpful with her advice.

This house was better than expected

This house was better than expected. Comfortable beds. Great bathrooms. Anna was the best host we have used on Airbnb. She left some food out for our late arrival. She provided so much insight into the town and what restaurants to eat at and where to gather historical information. If you visit go to the Castle. The breakfast there was fabulous. The location was great. Anna and the house were outstanding. Multiple levels so expect stairs. My dad is 81 and was able to navigate without difficulty. Thank you, Anna

From start to finish this was an outstanding trip

From start to finish this was an outstanding trip. Anna's communication was fantastic at all times and we really appreciated her flexibility with check in. The house is incredibly clean and nicely furnished. Each bedroom offers privacy for the occupant with all boasting en suites and being spacious. The communal spaces were also lovely, especially enjoyed the wee fire! It's a short walk into town and right across the road from the castle. The guestbook was also really helpful (especially for finding things to do on a Sunday!) Thanks Anna!

It was spotlessly clean and all essentials were provided

Anna Is a very communicative and helpful host. Her property provides three ensuite bedrooms which is a rare find in Stornoway. It was spotlessly clean and all essentials were provided - as well as a generous supply of edibles! A very convenient location for all Stornoway has to offer. Highly recommended

We wish we could have stayed longer!

As a group of 4 travelers, The Blue House was perfect, with room to spare! We found it beautifully decorated, very clean and well-located. Anna was always very responsive when we had questions and accessing the house was a breeze. It was really beyond our expectations. We wish we could have stayed longer!
