About

The Royal Hotel is Stornoway's most historic hotel.  A traditional 3 star hotel, where you can relax and enjoy Hebridean hospitality – whether you’re visiting us on holiday to the Outer Hebrides or dining in either our Boatshed Restaurant or HS-1 Cafe-Bar. The Royal Hotel is perfectly situated for your stay in Stornoway with views from your room across the marina towards Lews Castle, the town centre on your doorstep and the local beaches and visitor attractions just a short drive away.

We aim always to offer the special, warm hospitality for which our local people are famous – you’ll see it in the way we welcome and look after you throughout your stay in Stornoway.  If there’s anything you need that we may be able to help with – just ask. Our greatest strengths are our people – all committed to working hard to provide you with a truly enjoyable visit to Stornoway.

We have two dining options at the Royal Hotel with something to suit all tastes. Our Boatshed restaurant is a stylish, modern restaurant overlooking Stornoway Harbour and Lews Castle. Menus at the Boatshed celebrate the best of Scottish produce with an emphasis on local seafood and our local hand-dived scallops, mussels and creel caught langoustines are not to be missed!

If you are looking for a more casual dining experience then our recently refurbished HS-1 Cafe-Bar is for you. This is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy a meal with friends and family in a relaxed setting.

For more information, please see our website www.royalstornoway.co.uk or call us on 01851 702109.
