We spent 4 nights in a comfortable room. The room was quite chilly during the first day with the heaters offline. The rest of our stay the heater were working, so that was fine. I only missed the TV from our room. The place is quiet and 10 min walk of the town centre. The owner is a very knowledgeable... More

Very comfortable and clean rooms, good breakfast with fast service. The best part was the advice from the owner who was happy to get out the maps each morning and suggest things to do each day. Would return!

Our room was probably one of the best at this property--a large room with a great view and an en suite shower. The bed was comfortable. We appreciated the tea tray in the room. The breakfast was plain--the usual "Scottish breakfast," nothing special.The coffee and tea were both weak. Our host was willing to adjust but cooking is not a... More

The place is nothing exceptional, but good value for your money. Close to the center of Portree, comfortable (if small) rooms, and a very knowledgeable (if quirky) Dutch owner. Major problem: very weak wifi even in the common areas, not at all working in the rooms.

Accommodation was comfortable and clean. The owner was very knowledgeable and was able to give some great advice on the walks and sights we planned to visit. Great price for the location which is not in town, but is only a short walk away. Views from the living room were stunning.

Spent two nights here recently on our driving tour of Scotland. Definitely a good spot to see the sites on the Isle of Skye. Everything about this place was very good. Rooms/bathrooms (they were shared) were nice and clean. Tradition Scottish breakfast was filling. Best part was that the owner Jurnigan (sp) did a great job telling us about sights... More

Very Comfortable Stay at Givendale. Nice View from the Guest House. Owner is very friendly and take care for small needs. At Walk able distance from the maintown-Potree. Breakfast was also good and better than what you can expect in normal BBs.Lots of magazines/Games/Movies for Guests in Common Guest room. BedRooms are little small but cosy and comfortable. Recommended.

Can't fault this place at all for the price, had a great stay. The owner is friendly, knowledgeable about the area and meticulously clean. Great price for the location which is not in town, but is only a short walk away with stunning views to amuse on the trip. Breakfast was great too. Very recommendable.

Very good B&B. The whole place was immaculately clean. I was surprised that even the shared bathroom was perfectly clean and there was not a single time when I had to wait to use it. The whole place is run by it’s owner who is very knowledgeable in the whole Skye Island area. Even though he is the only one... More

We only stayed for one night which this place was ok for what we wanted although we would rather have had an en suite and a television - we don't ask for much!! It is a Bed and Breakfast and it does what it says on the tin. Alright just to crash but not exactly a home from home. Breakfast... More
