Arguably ! Finest small hotel in Highlands. Dot & Jim make their guests so welcome. As a seasoned traveller , I feel so at home whenever I check in. Every guest room in hotel has a stunning view that must be seen to be appreciated . Due to being so popular , my advice to all travellers is to reserve... More

Excellent location at the foot of Eilean Donan Castle. We had a room that looked out right at the Castle. Our room was clean and well decorated. Bathroom was ample, as was the shower stall (ensuite bathroom). Very comfortable. Dot was friendly and helpful.

This is an amazing place to stay. Extremely clean everywhere with fab miniatures in bathroom. Sky tv not that you will watch it much with the view and Dot and Jim were great hosts. My dad absolutely loved it too as his favourite place. Dot very accommodating and can't wait to come back. Breakfast was lovely cereals with yogurts and... More

We stayed here for 1 night (in the bedroom with the brownish wallpaper / castle view) on our drive-through to Skye/Uig. If you like castles... thats the B&B you´ve to stay - its a stonethrow away from the famous Eilean Donan Castle. You can also have a view from your bedroom :) The room was clean, well equipped and very... More

This B&B had the most beautiful view of Eileen Donan Caslte from our room as well as from the breakfast nook. The 3 guest rooms are all located upstairs in this newer construction home, which for us was not a problem. Our room was spacious with two sitting chairs. It had an extra twin bed available to accomodate families. The... More

I booked this B&B because of its views of Eilean Donan Castle and wow what a view. Dot and Jim, the owners, were so nice and hospitable. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a view of the flood lit castle. Breakfast was great and a lot of effort in catering for me as I don't eat meat. I... More

Our stay at Donan house was excellent. The location, view, facilities and friendly service was delightful. Its location was ideal for visiting Skye and other surrounding areas. Dot, you couldn't have been more gracious; sincere thanks for making us feel so welcome. Nelson & Mary

We stayed one night in our honeymoon. Found the owners to be helpful and friendly, actually in the morning the host was a bit quiet, I thought maybe I was loud from the pub the night before when I came in and offended them, but after reading other reviews I am relieved to know that the hosts are just not...

Stayed for only one night but we would have stayed on if time had permitted. The room was well nigh perfect in all respects with a clear view of floodlit Eilean Donan. Breakfast was very good indeed also. Dot has been criticised, we think unfairly, for perhaps appearing unfriendly at first. She does have a slight reserve but this is... More
