Stayed here on business this b&b was booked by the company I was working for on this particular week. Good looking on the outside but as soon as you walk in the door the smell of damp hits you right in the face . Rooms are also got that damp smell and the bed sheets were damp . Breakfast was...

The location is great (although, in Broadford there are only two choices of location; central and creepy). This B&B costs way more than it delivers. The room looks OK, it's clean and the shower looks new. However, the room was pretty cold (we were in October), there was a CRT television (with satellite), and when i entered the shower at... More

Looks neat, well located and clean rooms. However, the walls are very thin. Waking up with a neighbor singing in the shower is no fun. :-) Breakfast so fine, the breakfast room is very depressing. We paid £ 70 for an overnight stay.

Our trip to Scotland included about ten B&B's, and this was by far the worst one. We arrived in the evening. Originally planned to get some sandwiches, and eat in. We than asked the owner if we could sit in the breakfast room to eat our sandwiches, but he refused. We thought about eating the room but it was a... More

Good location, in the midst of Broadford, on the cross roads to Elgol, and opposite to Broadford hotel. Supermarket and petrol station are 2 min walk away. Broadford hotel bar less than 1 min walk away. Beautiful place with green lawn and old trees. The room was spacious, with wooden floors. Bathroom must have been very recently refurbished; looked brand... More

King size bed at no extra cost - sounded good but it was two beds pushed together - uncomfortable when snuggling up. Clean enough and wifi included, and the breakfast was ok. I'd been quoted £65 for the night, and the big surprise was being told £75 when we came to pay. The owner was just rude about that -... More

I tried to book a B&B in Portree not realising the Games were on, no chance! I remembered seeing this B&B from the outside when I was last in Broadford and thought I'd give it a go. Booked it for two nights then looked at Trip Advisor, why do I keep doing it that way round? Anyway, it's absolutely fine.... More

We arrived late at night and looked everywhere for a B&B with internet access. We stumbled across the Riverdale Lodge after first looking at the hotel across the road. However for one night it was too expensive! At the lodge were greeted by a very friendly man who showed us to our room. Yes it was 70 euros and sure... More

Our room (No.4) had glimpses of the water and was reasonably spacious. There was a balcony but it looked a bit grotty - needed a pressure water clean. The bathroom had nice big shower but the towels were small, thin and a bit frayed. No hairdryer. The bed was comfy and we slept well. Being across the road from the... More
