The Caladh Inn enjoys a great reputation for friendly hospitality and relaxed informality.  It is popular with both Outer Hebrides holiday makers and business people who have made it their regular home from home when repeatedly visiting the Western Isles.

Dinner and lunch in Eleven, the hotel’s  bright, modern bar restaurant, is popular with local residents, as well as hotel guests. You can enjoy carvery/buffet style meals and choices from an impressive a la carte menu.  In particular, Chef’s Seafood Special is a treat worth exploring.

Accommodation at the Caladh Inn

The comfortable Caladh Inn is only two or three minutes walk from Stornoway town centre, where you’ll find a selection of independently owned shops, as well as a sprinkling of multiples.

Although not particularly large by mainland standards (69 rooms), the Caladh Inn is the largest hotel in the Outer Hebrides and is frequently praised by guests for the friendly, hospitable service provided by its staff.

Food and drink at the Caladh Inn

Enjoy freedom of choice at Eleven’s carvery and buffet, or select from à la carte menus in a bright and cheerful, contemporary restaurant, which opened as a carvery and buffet.

You can browse a wide range of freshly prepared dishes and roasts to make your choice. Or pop a selection on your plate – it’s a great way to try something new.  Eleven’s chefs insist on quality ingredients and concentrate on using as much fresh local produce as possible.

There’s an excellent à la carte menu on offer at Eleven Restaurant and at lunch times, the selection of light bites includes hot sandwiches and wraps.

In the evening, à la carte menu choices include British favourites like local scallops, succulent sirloin steaks and lamb cutlets. There are authentic Asian dishes and pastas with fresh local seafood.

Convenient for town and touring

Outside you’ll find it takes around 10 to 15 minutes to stroll to the several square miles of wooded parklands and golf course that surround Lews Castle. Within an easy 5 minute walk of the hotel, Stornoway town centre has a wide range of facilities, including quality independent shops, harbours and a contemporary arts centre, An Lanntair.

“I really enjoyed my stay at the Caladh in Stornoway. A nice quiet room was warm and comfortable. The crowning memory will be the food, which is absolutely excellent. This, combined with friendly and helpful staff, puts it top of the list if I ever have to return to Stornoway.” – A TripAdvisor reviewer.
