  • "We had a wonderful time at the Old Mission Hall cottage."

    The cottage itself was cute, clean and had everything that we needed and more. The owner of the cottage is lovely and the caretaker has high standards of cleaners. The surroundings are amazing and we got the peace and quiet that we were looking for. Overall, we were really happy with the whole experience.

  • "Great, well equipped cottage, very comfortable, the lighting was very poor, dim and gloomy, we found it difficult to read."

    Thank you for your comment. We have now increased the wattage in the lights (and then added a dimmer for guests who prefer not quite so bright). We appreciate your input, which helps us to improve our facility. Property Owner

  • "If heaven is a place on earth then Old Mission Hall, Cromore is it !"

    The owners have thought if everything to make your holiday perfect and Karis the Housekeeper is the best housekeeper in the world, I actually had to double take when I arrived with my dogs as the house was so clean I thought I might have misread that pets were allowed ! Location is idyllic and shower gets 10/10, best cottage we’ve ever stayed in, in 30 years of renting cottages.

    Thank you for your kind comment! We hope your pups enjoyed their stay too. Property Owner

    The Mission hall is superbly fitted out and fully equipped for a comfortable stay.

    Thank you for your nice comment, and we're glad you had a pleasant stay. The village is indeed a lovely place, and we do our best for our guests' comfort. Property Owner

  • "The location and cottage are beautiful."

    The cottage was extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There was a beautiful ‘welcome hamper’ on arrival. Although my holiday was marred by a sore back the owners and caretaker went out of their way to help and did a lot more than anyone could expect to improve the situation. We were so impressed we have booked again for next year. Can’t praise them enough. Evelyn & Jack Cumming

    Thank you for your very kind comment! We hope you're better and will be able to stride around the hills, lochs and beaches on your next visit. Be well, stay safe! Property Owner

  • "If you want complete peace and tranquility this is the place for you."

    Sit on the veranda in the garden all you can hear are the sounds of nature. Cuckoos calling across the valley every day, herons,cormorants and merganser fishing on the loch outside the bedroom windows. The welcome pack was the best I have ever had and the place was spotless. The owners have thought of everything from binoculars and bird books to telescope, reference books, novels, dvds, music centre, lots of games, every cleaning product you could imagine. There was not a single cooking utensil that we might want that wasn’t provided. It is without doubt best equipped cottage we have stayed in.

    Kitted out with everything you could possibly need & more. Location is idyllic and the bedroom & conservatory have spectacular views. Very dog friendly the most comfortable we have felt with our dog at a cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & wished it was longer!!

  • "Old Mission Hall is in an absoutely stunning lochside location, with an abundance of birdlife and rumours of a local otter."

    The cottage is adorable, with a lovely cosy bathroom, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, brilliantly equipped kitchen (spice rack included!) and a gorgeous warm conservatory from which to overlook the loch. The bedroom is spacious with a very comfortable bed. A back door from the bedroom leads onto lochside decking, a great place for a beer in the sunshine! The best welcome pack I've seen awaited our arrival. Old Mission Hall is a fantastic base for exploring both north into Lewis and south into Harris. In the area we found plenty of walks to take on the walkhighlands website. We saw maybe a dozen golden eagles, a sea eagle, a couple of otters, a basking shark (at Renish point), a merlin and numerous deer and seals. We found tasty treats at Croft 36, Taste'n'Sea truck stop and at the Harris and Lewis smokehouse in Stornoway. I cannot recommend Old Mission Hall highly enough. We were heartbroken to be leaving at the end of an amazing week!

    The location was great and the views brilliant.We have been coming to the Isle of Lewis for the last 5 years so have done most of the attractions but love the beaches the most, or should I say our dogs love the beaches the most,we spent most of our time on the beach at Tolsta and walking around Cromore. We would like to thank Karen for the welcome pack one of the best we have ever received at a cottage, we would also like to thank you for allowing us to take our 3 dogs who loved it. We would highly recommend this cottage and will be back in the future.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at The Old Mission Hall."

    It was our first time on Lewis and Harris and we managed to tour the length and breadth of the islands. The property is in an excellent location and it was always a pleasure to return to what we knew was a warm and comfortable cottage, with everything we needed. The description of the property was very accurate and even if you chose to stay in and relax the views are magnificent. The peace and quiet was just what we needed. If you want a good nights sleep and wake up when you are ready and do as much or as little as you want on a beautiful island this is the place for you. The only thing we could have wished for is that we had booked up 2 weeks instead of 1. There is still more we need to do so hope to return in the future. Many Thanks for adding this property to Sykes website.

    We booked this beautiful cottage for 2 weeks and it exceeded our expections in every aspect. The manager's daughter lives next door and it was lovely having her and her family next door. She made us feel part of the community and happily chatted with about Lewis way of life and her family (this was by no means intrusive in our holiday). We love the location of this cottage and it was ideal place from which to visit ALL corners of the islands (Lewis, Harris, Scalpay and Great Bernera) which we did, discovering amazing beaches at the end of every road. We were also blessed with the most amazing weather for the whole 2 weeks we were there in October. We have come with wonderful memories and staying in this cottage was one of them
