Our welcome from the owner of the Gables was like family. She could not have been more friendly and kind to us. Our family room and the entire house and gardens were immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and well maintained. The house has a commanding view towards Portree centre about 15 minutes walk in on a flat route. We were treated... More

First class B&B run by Mrs Davidson, Spotless & immaculate room (Room 1) which had a picturesque view of the bay. There was a selection of breakfast cereals, fruits & juices etc followed by a substantial cooked Scottish breakfast which kept me going the whole day. Mrs Davidson & her assistant Evelyn have a wealth of local knowledge & are... More

We stayed for three nights at The Gables on our tour around Scotland. By far the most modern of the five B&Bs (this is the 3rd) we stayed in on this trip. Our family room was comfortable with ensuite bathroom and the wifi works wonderfully well. The Gables offer fantastic view of the Harbour and in fact you can see... More

I've never been to a B&B before so didn't know what to expect. We came in late after a long day of travelling and were welcomed by a very friendly lovely lady named Margaret. Felt so at home right away. It was very clean and very quiet. Slept so well and in the morning we were greeted with the same... More

We stayed for 2 days and used Portree as a base for visiting the Isle of Skye. The hostess was excellent and the food was great. Margaret was nice to give us recommendations for evening food as well as directions to some of the lesser know sights on the Isle of Skye. All in all, a very pleasant stay in... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Gables. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely Margaret, who had our room ready despite an early arrival time, and went out of her way to help us, eg getting my husband's rained-on clothes dry. Breakfast was good and everything was immaculately clean. Plus the B&B has a lovely setting. If you... More
