    The best wedding venue in stornoway

    Our wedding was on the 26/11/21. Kevin and Alana and their team made it the most amazing day! From my first meeting with Alana I knew we shared the same vision and ideas! Our wedding was amazing! Many people came to me and said it was THE best wedding they had attended in years! This is all due to Alana’s attention to detail. The wedding breakfast was fabulous and the signature cocktails went down a treat! I highly recommend the Cabarfeidh hotel. Nothing was too much bother.

    Wedding Day - The Perfect day all thanks to the staff at the Cabar.

    Myself and my wife could not praise the Cabar staff and especially Alana, the wedding & events manager, who went above and beyond to make our Wedding day special. We had to move a wedding in less than 4 months from Glasgow to Stornoway due to family circumstances. Alana helped us pull the day together and was always there to answer any questions. On the day the staff were all so kind and friendly to all our guests. They were always there to be a helping hand with a smile. Since the day we got married all our guests have all but complimented on the food. The canapes were outstanding and the main meal was plentiful and delicious. The day would not have gone so well without the people at the Cabar. We look forward to coming back for our anniversary meal. Kind regards, the Bride and Groom.

    Cabarfeidh Hotel's reply:

    Thank you for your review!
    We are so grateful for your kind comments within the review and made on the day. It was truly a delight hosting your Wedding and organising a day with two organised and enthusiastic people! You both put your full heart in to the day and it showed.
    We cannot wait to welcome you back on your first anniversary... we may even have a cold Guinness waiting on arrival.

    Love, the Cabarfeidh Team.

    Highly recommended for a fantastic wedding day

    We had originally planned a 180 guest wedding and due to covid had to bring it down to 50 guests. We could not have done this without the help and experience of Alana, the wedding planner, she is worth her weight in gold. She had an answer for everything for us and a solution for any problems. She was always on the end of the phone for us.
    The staff were all so helpful and so friendly to all our guests, nothing was too much for any of them.
    The food in the cabar is outstanding, all our guests absolutely loved it, especially the beef, the best some had had. The canapaes we had were delicious.
    Highly recommend a Cabar wedding, we have been to many as a couple and they are just fantastic from start to finish.
    We will be back again I’m sure, and very much looking forward to it 😃

    Cabarfeidh Hotel's reply:

    Thank you both so much for your extremely kind comments!
    We were honoured to celebrate your day alongside you - It was a real compliment to be chosen as your Wedding venue when having attended as guests to previous Weddings. Your trusting nature and dedication to guest satisfaction (one to mention - including additional cupcakes to suit guest allergies) was not lost - every detail was certainly thought long and hard over. To pick yourselves up and happily obliging to all restrictions in place (covid) is a real credit to the love that you both have for each other and those that were invited to your day - nothing dampened your long awaited Wedding date! Happy to invite you back for vow renewals every decade!
