I was on a working weekend in Portree our group were looked after amazingly by the staff who could not have been more helpful. Rooms are clean and functional the shower was hot and powerful food was also very good and served promptly. The bar is cosy and does a good pint of Guinness. No complaints.

As other reviewers have noted, the décor is outdated, the floors are squeaky, and the hotel is old, but we’ve been on the road for 3 weeks and I can honestly say that at Tongadale Hotel during our two day stay we received the highest level of service from every staff member we encountered, from the office manager, to the...

Dont let the shabby decor put you off. This is a great little pub with lovely staff. It seems top be quite decently priced too in the world of overpricing that is Portree.It even has free wifi. We only had a couple of drinks so cant comment on the food.

This hotel was picked due to the location being close to the centre - Co-op supermarket, Boots supermarket, restaurants, pubs and shops. The bus station and market square are just around the corner. Check in is on the ground floor, which is a pub. Then you take the stairs to 2nd or 3rd floors to your rooms via the restaurant... More

An old hotel in the center of Portree. The hotel is in an old building with several floors linked by staircases that with luggage are not very handy to escalate. The rooms are so so and not really the most confortable ones. The bath room is really very small, taking a shower in the tub is not very handy, the... More

My room was musty and old with worn out furnishings, old grubby carpet and mould on the shower ceiling. I would not recommend this accommodation although I understand some of the other rooms had been refurbished and were of a higher quality.

It's a very basic hotel, but room is large and clean. Nothing fancy about this hotel. Breakfast was much better than I expected. Service was superb. Staff very friendly! It is located in the center of the city, close to very nice restaurants and the docks. Will definitely come back!

Rooms are very clean and it is very centrally located to everything. Breakfast was wonderful and cooked to order. You could also have other meals here as well as it has a pub within. Great place to relax in after a day of sightseeing.

Pleasant little bar in the centre of Portree, friendly and helpful landlady. Rooms were fully booked so unfortunately I was unable to stay but hope to return in the near future. Well worth a visit, probably the best bar in town.

Clean basic rooms in central location. Our teenagets appreciated the good wi fi. Reasonable breakfast options. Close to overnight parking (free at this point) in the central square. Check out the hilarious notations on the town map in the square (for example...view towards island known for eye gouging and castration).
