Good Hotel Guide Review
There’s ‘a good night’s sleep’ and more at the Urquhart family’s ‘lively’ Ceilidh Place – a popular fusion of cultural hub, bookshop and small hotel, one street back from the ferry terminal. Alongside reading matter from its ‘excellent, well-stocked’ bookshop, and small library in each bedroom, there is often live music, and regularly changing art exhibitions displayed throughout the clutch of whitewashed cottages. By day, the café serves coffee and cake, by night it becomes ‘a restaurant that is full every evening’, where chef Scott Morrison turns local and home-grown produce into ‘seriously tasty’ dishes. Over four nights a reader ‘enjoyed pork, apricot and pistachio terrine; smoked haddock chowder; spiced crab in its shell; baked aubergine with chickpeas, lentils and yogurt sauce’. There is also a bar with Hebridean islands’ gins and a range of single malts. Upstairs, the residents’ lounge ‘overlooks the village’ and has a kitchenette ‘fully stocked with free tea and coffee’, and honesty bar. The simple bedrooms are peaceful: ‘Ours was very large and overlooked the garden; it had a good-sized bathroom, lots of storage space and two chairs.’ (GC, and others)
