This family run hotel is kept in an old style and its like stepping into a film from the forties. Even the music is from that time. All the rooms are in all shapes and sizes which makes it a unik experience. The restaurant is sooo cozy and all the staff are both welcoming, friendly and very serviceminded - and... More

This was the first place we stayed in Scotland, and definitely the best. It's a beautiful old building in a fantastic spot--the view of the ocean is incredible (you must get an ocean view room!). There's a walking path along the water and you'll see why the inn is named The Rocks! Our room was excellent, the food was wonderful,... More

We stayed at the Rocks a few years ago and had positive and negative experiences so we decided on a return trip. This time we booked room 4, great views, spa type bath, very comfortable and relaxing. The mattress had what appeared to be a down topping on it and we found that in the hot weather it was too... More

We were treated like royalty and given the table for two... More

Had lovely chill out stay at the Rocks with my friend. The room(room 4) was clean & had lovely view from our balcony. We ate at the restaurant on the Friday night & chose Posh fish & chips which we both enjoyed with a bottle of Prosecco. The service was excellent. We found everyone to be friendly & enjoyed our...

We visited The Rocks with high expectations. After a few members of the group had previously been and enjoyed meals. Unfortunately we left a little disappointed. The front of house staff were very friendly and helpful. The service they delivered was first class. The Rocks had a lovely Ambiance and our experience was very much improved by this. Our Starters...

We ate here the previous week after arranging to meet with some relatives over from Montreal. Everyone thought the food was fantastic and the staff were so helpful and accommodating. We were so impressed that we booked into one of the rooms the following week on our way back to Yorkshire from the Isle of Skye. I'd read mixed reviews... More

Auf Empfehlung unseres Vermieters haben wir dort Geburtstag gefeiert. Super Essen und ein genialer Blick von Tisch 2b aus. Our landlord recommended us this restaurant to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Food was amazing and we had a nice view from from the table 2b.
