What a delight to stay in luxurious surroundings amidst outstanding natural beauty. If you enjoy the splendours that Northern Scotland has to offer this is a superb place to stay. Tanja and Sonia are highly professional in their approach and make sure that guests new to the area are given maps and advice on where to visit. And there is... More

The Kylsku Hotel is a perfect example of how a small Scottish Hotel should be run - charming hosts and enthusiastic staff, nicely finished comfortable rooms and some of the best seafood we've ever tasted. This was our 2nd trip to the hotel and the renovations made over the winter have worked tremendously well - irrespective of whether you dine... More

Having left Skye, we headed further north to Kylesku. We had eaten here a few years ago, but not had the opportunity to stay. I am glad that we made the effort. Tanya and Sonia could not offer a warmer, friendlier welcome, to us and our Jack Russell, Betsy. Indeed all of the staff were friendly and very helpful. For... More

.....connoisseurs select it!! Tanja and Sonia have managed to improve further on their winning formula with the expansion and refurbishment of the bar, dining area and outside terrace. Still always willing to take onboard any comments whether positive or negative and ever present in the public areas making guests feel welcome and at ease. Its not every dog that gets... More

My wife says this is the best hotel she has ever stayed in. I can't be sure whether I agree but I can't think of a better one. We loved everything from the comfy bed with Egyptian Cotton sheets, tasteful Scandinavian decor to the superb food. But best of all was the warm welcome from our hosts Tanya and Sonia... More

We stayed in Kylesku Hotel for two nights in May 2015. I had very high expectations after having looked at their website and was really looking forward to it. When we arrived and were shown our room we were rather shocked. It was a yard-facing room with almost no natural light and a damp smell. We felt like living in... More

Some observations On first day we booked table with one of proprietors. When we arrived for dinner we found the table occupied. Explanation given was that table had been doubled booked. We were shown to a table near the entrance. This we declined and only after our insistence an acceptable alternative was found. The food in the restaurant was excellent.... More

Discovered Kylesku for a birthday treat a few years back and fell in love with the place and area just as it was. Now the hotel has just been redesigned and updated building wise and is now has a modern feel but with traditional touches. Tanja, Sonia, Denise and the rest of the team always look after us superbly. If... More

What can I say that hasn't been said about the Kylesku Hotel. It's simply a great place to stay, comfortable, small but totally adequate rooms, excellent food and delightful owners and staff. The recent renovations have worked very well indeed and made the dining room and residents lounge much more usable (not too convinced that the new wooden exterior fits... More

Dear lightning92, What a lovely review, thank you. Tanja and I are always keen to please and we look for people to join our team who will share that vision. Mark is a perfect example, and he is very enthusiastic! Regarding the Siberian Larch cladding outside of the hotel, it is inspired by the landscape. In time, it will turn... More

How can this hotel get it so right, when so many others get it so wrong? In my view it's because those who own, manage and run it put customers first and believe in delivering real value for money. The setting is superb, the attention to detail is exemplary, and the quality of all that is provided - accommodation, food... More

Dear 1Reviewer1, WOW! Thank you for your very generous review. It is true that we always question ourselves on what we try to offer and will seek our feed back actively from our guests as we feel it is the only way to improve. Our team is also part of that process via the knowledge they would have acquired in... More
