The location of this B&B is absolutely beautiful, it really is the nicest view to wake up to! The rooms are really homely and modern, with lots of tea / coffee, etc. facilities. The breakfast is fantastic, all home-made and has a really personal feel to it. You really do get looked after! Although we never met Ruth (the owner),... More

The room was comfortable and big enough, the service was ok, but the main draw was the proximity to restaurants and local shops, and also close to the other attractions in the area. We didn't really ask much of the staff, so I can't really comment on their helpfulness.

We booked a Superior Double Room with Sea View and we were surprised to find two double beds in the room. Not sure how that happened but we liked the room in every way. We had a room with a nice view of the sea/port, the hotel is well located very near the shops and the breakfast was great. The... More

Not sure really why people are complaining- Skye is often overpriced and crowded sadly, but this place although small did what it set out to do- clean, warm, well placed, excellent service (Mila this time) rooms are smallish but it's a guest house not a hotel, and on Skye you shouldn't be in your room that much! Clean, tidy (my... More

Booked for two nights but only stayed one. If we had not pre-paid for the first night we would not have stayed at all. Our greeting by the reception person was very rude and all she was interested in was getting immediate payment for the second night - she didn't get it! Room was OK but bed and pillows were... More

The building was great, with a great view, however apart from the girl who was hired to run the place who made an effort, it was disappointing. The room was small, bathroom not properly cleaned, curtains, carpet and linen looked like they all needed a good tidy up or replacing. Wi-Fi was shown as available throughout, however we were told...

I stayed at coolin view guest house recently and i thought it was fantastic. The girl (Britney i think her name was) who welcomed me in to the guest house was extremely polite and very accommodating. She offered to carry my bags up to my room for me which i was glad of as i have a bad back, she... More

We chose this B&B because of its convenient location in Portree and its sea front view. We were not disappointed. Its just a short walk to various restaurants. Sunrise & sunset views of the Portree Harbour were stunning. There is no lifts & the room is basic but comfortable. The lady preparing breakfast was very friendly & helped us in... More

The only thing we liked about Coolin View was the lady who worked there. Not the greatest professional, but a very nice lady who liked to make us laugh. She made a big effort to make our breakfast time an enjoyable one, but unfortunately the old bedroom we stayed in is taking over the memories we have from that one... More

I stayed at this B & B on the 3rd sept for 4 nights with my friend Dot. The room was small but pleasant, adequate and clean. The view from our room was wonderful. The breakfast menu offered a good variety and was cooked well. I have read the recent reviews and I'm quite shocked, I found the manager/owner (not... More
