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

Good food - cream of courgette soup was sublime, prompt and friendly service. I asked for decaf coffee and had a small personal pot delivered in a matter of minutes with a cheerful smile. The rooms were small but clean and comfortable for a one night stay. Anyone with mobility issues might want to ask for a room on one... More

Stayed one night, great location but needs an overhaul. Rooms on the small size, bathrooms pretty good with what looks like a new shower. Narrow stairs, no elevator, could use a paint job. Carpets need replacing. Breakfast adequate, bar good. Again okay for a stay.

The room was exceptionally clean, with a very comfortable bed and new fluffy pillows, The room... More

We stayed here for one night while on an organized tour of Ireland and Scotland. It is just the right amount of hospitality and charm. The rooms are certainly not made to spend any time in. There is a second floor lounge where they TV may or may not work, but that is not where you are here for. Get... More
