Unfortunately the hotel has now closed due, we were told, to the owner's ill health. It has an excellent reputation for accommodation and food with a superb location on the southern tip of Harris overlooking an old harbour. It is so accessible from all parts...More

The Rodel hotel is a hidden gem, from the outside it looks at first impression grey and drab but first impressions aren't always correct, service excellent, rooms excellent, food also excellent, I recommend this hotel highly, if you want to get away from it all,...More
