As part of a group of 5 friends' trip around the west coast of Scotland, we arrived here by Taxi from Kyle (Kyle Taxis, recommended) on a blustery cold March day with snow above about 500 feet. Just as well we came over the Skye bridge as the ferries had been cancelled. But then things improved... Warm welcome from Richard,... More

Myself and my fiancé have just returned from an amazing stay in the Ardvasar hotel over the festive period and it was a little touch of something special. The location gave rise to the most breathtaking of views and was a short drive to other parts of Skye where we experienced and took in the many beautiful sights of the... More

A warm friendly and un-pretentious hotel with a personal welcome from Richard the owner. Richard kindly allowed us to use use his car park for our motorhome for a couple of nights so we made good use of the restaurant. The food is good value tasty fare. We decided to stay for Christmas Eve and found out he room clean,... More

My husband and I came across this lovely place after returning to the wonderful Isle of Skye after many years. We were to catch the ferry to Malaig but had a little time to explore this part of the island before our departure. We took the car along the road, not really sure what to expect or indeed if there... More

A very quaint little place that is a throwback in time. The check-in is in actual book with pen and paper, not a computer. The hotel key is...an actual key, not a key card. The rooms are good for their purpose, to sleep. The food at the hotel restaurant was not the best in the world but it was good... More

We first cam here as part of our honeymoon in 2005, and have since returned 2007, 2009, 2011, and now 2014. It's a lovely friendly gem of a place. Great food whether you prefer the simple but hearty bar meals, or the more involved a la carte. Lovely beer (Skye Red). Great friendly fun in the Public Bar area if... More

I booked a room for 03/09/2014 at lateRooms.com . Then I cancelled the booking on 26/09/2014 at lateRooms.com, and received a confirmation email for the cancellation. However, the hotel charged me 130 pounds on 04/09/2014. After I found the charge in my bank statement, I forwarded my cancellation confirmation to them richard@advarsar-hotel.demon.co.uk , and asked for a refund. However, they... More

We arrived at Ardvasar via the ferry from Mallaig. A whitewashed hotel, tucked away on a quiet lane with a view of the sea, Ardvasar Hotel is only a few minutes from the ferry but you feel as if you are miles away. Richard is the consummate host who made us feel completely at home. Upon our arrival, we enjoyed... More

We stayed for 4 nights on our continuing tour of Scotland Very handily placed for ferries which are still busy, the bridge is of more use for the minority going /coming from the north Received a very warm welcome from Richard and Pixie. In fact Pixie distracted my wife for some time. We had booked a room with a sea... More

We stayed for two nights at the Ardvasar which is a bit out of the way now that the Skye bridge is in place, would have been great when the ferry was around. Gorgeous location, just round from Armadale castle. The owner is really a lovely man and if you love dogs like me then your'e in for a treat... More
