About Murdo Maclean
I have no doubt that anyone staying in this cottage will have an extremely pleasant and enjoyable visit to the Isle of Lewis.
Murdo Maclean purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Murdo Maclean chose Stornoway
The great thing about this cottage that most others don't offer is its convenience of being close to the Town Centre but also being beside the Sea. It really does feel like being in the Countryside. A short stroll will find you at the edge of the Sea shore, where the air doesn't get any fresher. In the Summer watch the cruise ships sail past as they bring their passengers into Stornoway Harbour.
What makes this Cottage unique
The benefits of staying in this cottage include 5 minutes walk from Main Ferry Terminal 5 minutes drive from Stornoway Airport. Short walk into Stornoway Town Centre to enjoy the many Pubs, Cafes and Shops. 5 minutes walk to Tesco convenience store. Sunday shopping available only a short walk away.
Property was very centrally located in Stornoway. Two large bedrooms with a kitchen cum dining cum lounge. Very clean and comfortable. We had a lovely time and hope to return at a future date.
Thank You for your kind review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Lewis and found the cottage comfortable. I look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
Very good but let down by attention to detail see below
The property was ideally located to explore the islands and Stornoway being a short walk away.
Overall the facilities provided were very good and quite comprehensive. However we felt the property was let down some issues i.e.
- most of the internal walls had lots of dirty marks on them and judging by the amount it suggested that the property had not been decorated for some time.
-with reference to housekeeping, there were dirty fingerprints on the t.v. screen and a couple of cobwebs hanging from the ceiling. Additionally the gas hob could not be used when we arrived as the igniter did not work (no gas and no spark)
It is issues like these that should be checked properly prior to commencement of a let period.
liked the modern decor. Bedrooms were lovely and spacious. Nice quiet street. Good to have off street parking. Nice outlook at the back.
A very nice place to stay
Nice, spacious and near to the city
we stay one week in this house and everything was confortable and warm.
The house has everything you can need, in a quiet surround.
But very close to the town (ten minutes walk). Tesco is a 5 minutes walk.
Murdo (the owner) was very kind and lovely.
"Make your way to Stornoway!"
The cottage was brilliant for us. The attention to detail eg all the implements for cooking and the cupboard space in the kitchen were plentiful. The overall standard of furniture and space was incredible. We certainly didn't have enough clothes with us to fill the drawers or wardrobe. The bathroom and ensuite facilities also worked very well for us. The wifi was the best we have experienced on the island and had no problems with all four of us using it and with two teenage daughters saved a lot of grief for mum and dad. The pleasant surprise (for me) being sports nut was full sky sports tv. To cap it all of we had ten days of glorious sunshine and the Hebcelt festival of music. I can't find find fault with any of what was provided for us apart from not being able to sus out how to work the music in the bathroom. The town centre is an easy ten minute walk away where some excellent eating/drinking places can be found. Well done Murdo I hope all goes well for you and your cottage remains annonymous so that it will be possible for us to return!!!!!!!!
