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

One of my all-time favorites. Great location, one minute walk to Eilean Donan Castle and Dornie village. Great hosts, friendly and helpful, reasonable price. Highly recommended. "."."...........................................

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

The room was lovely and very clean. We had a view of the castle and I can't descrive how perfect it was. Breakfast was welk cooked abd varied,with a extremely cosy environment. Of our hosts,we met just Dot,who at first seems unfruendly,but who is actually extremely nice. We were able to take our coffee mugs outside after breakfast and seat... More

Rooms are very spacious, clean and smell of fresh linens. We were given 2 rooms, both with a view of Eilean Donan Castle from the windows - looks amazing in the evening. Dot was nice and friendly and recommended the Clachan Pub, very close to the B&B for drinks and dinner. A very busy pub that serves good, fresh tasting... More

We stayed here in June and it was very pleasant. The rooms are decorated in a modern style and it was very clean. Jim and Dot, the owners, are very nice and gave us some good tips on where to eat and how & when to get to the castle. The view from our room was beautiful, and I don't... More

Warm welcoming and comfortable. Great location friendly owners and excellent breakfast. Large clean comfortable room and really good local advice makes this a great choice to stay in an area with lots of choice. They really do stand above the crowd.
