Good Hotel Guide Review
Amid the ‘drowned landscape’ of North Uist, with its tidal strands, lochans and peat bogs, this former shooting lodge overlooking Loch Langass is run as a hotel by Amanda and Niall Leveson Gower. ‘It’s a lovely location surrounded by wildlife,’ say regular readers in 2018. Bedrooms are in the main house and ‘a modern extension set into the hillside’, reached by a covered walkway. ‘Comfortable’ and ‘stylishly furnished’, they are more traditional than chic. An annexe room had ‘wooden floors and rugs, French doors on to a little terrace with a lovely outlook’. The inviting bar, with a log-burner, antlers and a fireplace covered in shells, adjoins a conservatory/lounge, ‘the nicest room, with big sofas and tables’. Guests can eat here or in the ‘bright, airy’ dining room, perhaps a seafood platter, Lochmaddy Bay lobster or North Uist venison burger. The staff are ‘efficient and helpful’. ‘However, some guests in 2018 report ‘slow service, inadequate cutlery’ and difficulty getting dinner reservations at the time they wanted. Outside the lodge, the island is ‘a paradise for wildlife, especially birds’. (PB, and others)
