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)

Guest comments

'Lovely comfortable room in the Lodge, fabulous food : especially the local hand-dived scallops, friendly staff, and magnificent scenery with wonderful wildlife. ' - Philip Bright - May, 2017
'The best stop of our 'grand tour'. A beautiful hillside room with view of loch and garden. Charming staff and wonderful food, Lovely beeaches and scenery. Complete peace. ' - Margaret Wall - May, 2012
'A handsome white-painted sporting lodge with a separate, slightly barn-like, modern extension set into the hillside and linked by a covered walkway and glassed reception lobby. Our ground-floor ‘hillside’ bedroom was spacious, stylishly furnished, with large comfy twin beds and armchairs, wooden floors and rugs, French windows on to a little terrace with a lovely outlook of garden – and well-stocked children’s play area and hills beyond. A good bathroom. The main house is also stylishly decorated. A cosy bar with a traditional feel and wood-burning stove, a bright, airy dining room, a light, comfy conservatory-like sitting room. Fabulous views across Loch Langass. Dinners were good to very good: excellent ingredients (local fish, meat, etc), sometimes slightly over-worked. Staff were extremely efficient and friendly, and Amanda Leveson Gower was helpful in suggesting walks and providing maps. T ' - SM - August, 0207
