Lovely friendly spot right next to town centre. Parking, wifi, everything you need. Full of interesting guests too. Room had a great harbour view which was very nice to wake up to. Lovely cooked breakfast! I didn't need lunch 😉

My friend and I stayed here for one night in May in one of the top floor rooms. The views were amazing and the hosts were very friendly and helpful recommending a super place to eat at night. There's also a small car park outside, which is great because we found it quite hard to get parked in the town!... More

I was lucky to be advised by the Tourist Office to pop along the way to Coolin View. Very friendly welcome, with lots of useful advice and tips. Sensible price for a small room, just fine for one night. Very clean, plenty of tea and hot water, a good bed and they have car parking! The wifi is a bit... More

Coolin View is ideally situated with a great view over Portree harbour and a short walk both to the local store, bus station and nice nature trails. The rooms are nice and tidy and the service is very friendly including tasty breakfast.

I stayed two nights at Coolin View in May 2015. My room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The view from my room was stunning. The owners were so helpful and kind. The breakfast was fantastic. One of the owners was very concerned that he was afraid that I was not eating enough. What a great place to stay!

Very friendly, owner always ready to help with advice on where to eat or how to get to places. Room small but clean, a little noisy when other guests leave the bathroom fan on all night! Free Wi-Fi. Great views across the harbour. Breakfasts a little limited compared to some( i.e. no fruit, croissant) but adequate. Very handy parking.

Arrived in Portree late afternoon. We took a chance and tried the Coolin View B & B and had a wonderful stay. Eddie and Jim were outstanding hosts making us a much needed cuppa of tea the minute we walked in. Or room was clean and tidy with all the little extras that make a place special. The breakfasts were... More

We have just had a fabulous weekend at Coolin View Guest House, our room was at the front and afforded us stunning views overlooking Portree Harbour, I could have sat there for hours wiling the day away, our room was very comfortable, a real home from home, great toilet / shower everything immaculately clean and nice little touches included free...
