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

We stayed 4 days at Givendale Guest House and it was a great base for our trips around Skye. Jurriaan was very helpful in planning our walks. He was also very informative about the breakfast and we never waited more than a couple of minutes. We had high expectations to the breakfast and it was allright, but not phenomenal. The... More

I only stayed one night but my room was clean and comfortable.I shared a bathroom but this was spacious and clean and there was no queue. The surrounding garden was very pretty. The view from the sitting room was amazing. Julien the owner was really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Very good value.

This place is definitely not worth the number of stars that appear on this site. The whole house looks untidy and the carpet on the entrance hall and staircase is filthy. The owner is very willing to share his personal experience of Skye, which can be helpful, but becomes very overwhelming when he shows his own pictures and cannot stop... More

On first arriving at Givendale we were a little disappointed with the reception area, the dismal hallway and steep stairs but the welcome from the owner more than made up for it and when we saw the view from our room window WOW! Yes the place is a little dated but we found our room to be clean and tidy.... More

B&B is in a quite location, 10-15 min by walk to Portree. Room was simple and clean but too small for my family (me, my wife and our ten years old daughter): it was good because I stayed here only for one night and because its price was right for the room category but the space was extremely limited.
