Fabulous fabulous food -
This is essentially a restaurant with rooms.The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet but it is the food that makes this extra special.From sumptuous breakfasts of fresh fruit, smoked fish &the ‘full Scottish’ through to the most amazing dinners servicing fresh local food in delicious and imaginative ways.All in a room with wonderful views over th North Uist landscape.

One night Dinner bed and breakfast... -
Having been before our expectations were very high. Unfortunately, too high, as it wasn't nearly as good as the last time. The welcome was as expected and the accommodation was also as before and very adequate. The dinner however was not up to previous visits which was disappointing because it was so, so good before. Maybe it was a bad night but the seafood broth was not as before (it was brilliant last time) and the shellfish wasn't properly cleaned and there were bits of shells throughout my main course. It was fine but just not up to the 5 star standard of previous visits.

Beautiful location -
We enjoyed a 2 night stay here in mid July. Hosts, Alan and Isabel, were very welcoming. Good Highland hospitality extended to cooking the cockles and mussels we'd picked from local beach and letting us take their dog for a walk on the beautiful land behind the house! A real home from home experience. Also wonderful food with generous helpings. Spacious rooms. Highly recommended.

Happy to be held up by a storm, on isle of south Uist! -
We were prebooked for one nights stay at the Orsay Inn, on our tour from north to south, at the outer Hebrides, when a storm cancelled all ferrylines around the islands. So the extroadinary kind owners, managed to fixe another nights stay.They were absolute helpfull when we had to rebook new ferry- and flighttickets, when we occupied their telephonelines for hours. And at the top of this;The kitchen held absolute star-class, and is well worth a travel to south Uist, only for that reason. Thanks for your seviceminds and kindness, so we will add a special memory of the Orsay Inn, to our Scotland-tour.Stig and Birgitta from Sweden

We had a lovely two night stay at Orasay.The owners are very welcoming and friendly, there is a nice atmosphere in the place.

Superb seafood! -
It's worth travelling a long way to the Orosay Inn just for the seafood. Some of the very best I've ever tasted - they really know how to both source and cook both fish and shellfish. Can't understand why it's not in the Good Food Guide!

I have stayed here several times for work and each time the friendly service and excellent food have not disappointed.The flexibility shown by the owners for our early starts and late finishes was a real bonus that made us feel very welcome.We were well looked after and I can thoroughly recommend the Orasay Inn for its hospitality, comfort and friendliness.
Reviewer:Mr. Roger H | Sun 9th Apr 2017 | 1 year ago
Friendly warm welcome -
This hotel is like home from home and I was made to feel really welcome by the owners, Isobel and Alan. Whilst the rooms were on the small side especially if you were a couple in the double room but as I had sole occupancy it was fine and the decor is a little dated. However on the plus side there was no need to sit in our room in the evening as there is a cosy lounge to chill in both before and after your evening meal.There is a pretty extensive menu especially considering as all the cooking is done by Isobel and some of the food was outstanding, not fine dining but mostly what sort of fair you would have at home well apart from the sea food platter perhaps. Others have commented that they thought it was expensive but I would say that £11 for haddock and chips wasn't out the way. Thee were more pricy things on the menu depending on you budget. The breakfast was one of the best I have had in hotels around the world with a fabulous selection of fresh fruit as well as pretty much everything you could ask for for a hearty Scottish breakfast.The owners having been there for a good few years obviously know the area and certainly gave me some advice on the local hills as if time allowed and I finished work early wanted to climb being mhor which I did one evening and it's a cracking wee hill.I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever working in the area again and would stay if travelling in south Uist on my own violation.

Top marks for a wonderful holiday -
We absolutely loved our stay at The Orasay and found it an excellent base to explore the Islands round and about.Our room was terrific, with a beautiful, peaceful view from the French windows and balcony - perfect for a glass of wine when the sun shone.The highlight of The Orasay has to be the splendid food served in their restaurant. We were so impressed with the standard of the cuisine that we booked every night of our stay and had some excellent fish dishes amongst other things. The breakfasts were of the same high standard, with lots of variety and always a wonderful selection of fresh fruit. The haddock poached in milk was particularly tasty.We would not hesitate to book at The Orasay again if we are ever in that part of Scotland again.

Good value hotel with a very good dining room. As the guide books say it the latter that makes this place:very fresh 'catch of the day' food cooked simply but very well. Also, a good range of wines are available.

Fantastic breakfasts -
Spent two nights here and were made to feel very welcome right from the start.Lovely room with big bed and the view from the restaurant/decking was stunning. We had excellent weather which we took full advantage of to tour South Uist - the Orasay is in a perfect location to do both North and South Uist.Food was superb especially the breakfasts - the most enormous full Scottish I have ever seen!

Nice quiet friendly hotel.Single rooms quite smallbut fine.Great breakfast including fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice and filter coffee. Evening meals of high standard and a great choicefrom specials through to pricier seafood options. Small enough to feel fine to go to eat as a person travelling alone.

We had a eight day holiday on South Uist in May 2012 and were delighted with our accommodation at the Orasay Inn.The Superior roomwas a great choice with its French windows to a patio.We greatly enjoyed Isabel's cooking, really good home cooking and always plenty!Home made bread,freshly cooked seafood dishes and old-fashioned proper soups were the speciality of the Inn.The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we were even blessed with lovely weather.

Just the Job -
Our party was treated with great friendliness and looked after very well. The rooms were very comfortable and the views from the East end rooms with the doors opening on to decking were superb.A word of warning. The ferry from Oban to Loch Boisdale is not scheduled every day of the week and may be cancelled by bad weather.Other ferries are available.Travel Insurance should be considered.

review of stay -
This is an excellent small hotel.It is small and friendly with a great dinner menu and a breakfast that will set you up for the day.The small guest lounge is a great place to wait for dinner in a friendly informal atmosphere.A home away from home kind of place that I would thoroughly recommend for those travelling alone or for work.
