On checking into the hotel, I was pleased with the size and comfort of my single room. Odd though to have a TV installed on a sloping wall, which would have been better viewed from lying on the floor than sitting in a chair!! Other than that, for a budget hotel, I found it quiet and comfortable. Food served at... More

The best thing I can say is they offered free Wifi....in the lounge. It is advertised as remodeled, and if a coat of slapped on paint is a remodel...it is. Our bathroom toilet looked as if there was something growing in the bottom. The hall carpets were stained, greasy, and torn...really, really gross. The complementary breakfast prove the adage, "nothing... More

Recently in April we did a 2 week road trip in Scotland to see the beautiful scenery and sights. I tried to book hotels/motels that included breakfast and were reasonably priced. For the Isle of Skye area I booked 2 nights at the Kings Arms Hotel. I always consult TripAdvisor but realized after booking that there were some horrid reviews... More

Third time me and some friends used this hotel as a base while photographing in the area. Choose it as it is the cheapest deal for b&b that we found in the location. Overall its clean, tidy and the breakfast service is great. Complaints? Not many apart from the hotel bar shuts at 10.45pm even though there are many guests... More

After a long day and several hours driving we arrived at this hotel tired. I was less than impressed when we were greeted with a very rude receptionist, she was also very slow to process our arrival. There was a man behind us claiming to have waited 3 hours for someone to attend his room which had no hot water.... More

I have stayed in a lot of unusual places around the world but I cannot ever remember one as bad as this. It is evidently part of the "Bespoke Hotel" group, however, the room, as well as other things, is at best pokey!! The hotel is tatty to say the least, with wallpaper coming away on walls and ceilings, threadbare... More

It depends on your expectations on how far £40 goes on accommodation on Skye, mine were a clean bed, hot shower and a fair breakfast which will all be met at this hotel. It is not pretending to be the RITZ but that is reflected in the price. Yes its dated and a little tired but just enjoy the quirks... More

We had to book into this hotel because a ferry problem forced us to sail to Uig instead of Oban at short notice. It's not good. The decor is terrible, the pillows so old that they've lumpy and the place is full of notices starting "do not..." The bar has the worst collection of whiskies I've ever come across; when... More

We were booked in to this hotel by our holiday company (coach trip) and had looked at reviews on Trip advisor which are not good. from the outside the place looks OK but inside it is worn and outdated. The room was clean but the bathroom was worn out and the widow frames rotten so all in all not a... More

Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed! We needed a base to stop over on a trip to the Outer Hebrides. The Kings Arms is fine, bed was comfy, pillow good, heating controllable and we slept well. The hotel bar/lounge area is a bit sterile and we went to Haakon Bar (?) which was a laugh! We needed...
