The Tongadale seems to to have a poor reputation which is not deserved. This is not the Ritz, its not a 5 star hotel, it is a small local budget hotel, the rooms are not huge, the beds are comfortable, there is an en-suite toilet and shower, what more do you need! You access the hotel via the bar, there... More

We visited this hotel for one night on an Insight tour. We were not sure what to expect, as were told a few days before that we were unable to take our suitcases with us, instead we had to pack an overnight bag for this one night stay. There were lots of stairs levels and passage ways, so we understood... More

given the location - and the size of our group , this was probably the best option available to us. But it is a very basic, old hotel. Lots of steps with no lift. Not enough room for a suitcase. Shower very small, larger people may not fit in it. We had a room up in the attic, which was... More

stayed here in August, 2014 as part of a tour. Better than expected from pre-trip review of comments. Rooms and baths ARE small but service was superb and food was quite good. Probably as good as it gets on Skye without paying a fortune for a room.

We stayed here for 1 night on our group bus tour of Scotland with Insight Vacations in August 2014. Rooms were clean, but very basic, old fashioned and small. The bathroom and the shower were very small. From our experience on this tour, this hotel is typical of what one can expect out in the rural countryside and especially on... More

We spent a fair few nights in the bar here on holiday. Brilliant staff behind the bar and fair prices for the island. We have tried the other hotel bars but none come close at all. The décor is ancient but it just adds to the charm of the place. Toilets are clean and tidy at all times. The atmosphere... More

Always seem to end up (or start here) when staying in Portree. Never stayed in hotel. Ate there once and it was OK. Bar is decent size. Busy at times. Lots of tourists so plenty different accents to pick up on. Decent choice of single malts available. Will go back again for sure.

I had taken a pad off the sole of my foot and walked across the room to throw it away. When I went to put a new pad back on, there was black hairs stuck to my foot. This was enough to tell me that the room hadn't been vacuumed before we arrived. Neither one of us have black hair.... More

More like a back packers hotel, centrally located in the one main street town of Portree. I nicknamed our room, 17, "the skinny room", with two single beds end to end. The small, ancient TV is situated high and viewable only from one bed. The hotel is old and the rooms are very small. Friends had a room with a... More
