Stayed 2 nights in May of 2014. No one there to greet you. Had to knock and knock and a hotel customer came down. We didn't have a working cell phone to call the number that was taped to the front door. Finally, a person showed up smelling like booze. Bad beds, tile on floor of bathroom was coming apart,...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Coolin View June 2014. We booked a 3 day tour and stayed at this wonderful little B&B. The rooms were a bit small but the price was right as we didn't need anything extravagant. The breakfast in the morning was great and the service went above and beyond. The owner was in at... More

I had a prompt and warm check-in upon my arrival, paid up-front, and was immediately shown my room, which I found to be quite nice and large. Breakfast is included in the cost, and you choose any cooked items you might like on this little form that you turn in to the kitchen by 8pm the night prior. In my... More

Nice view of Portree Harbour, convenient to shops, off street parking, clean, good breakfast, friendly staff, nice washroom, comfortable. This is a typical older house and therefore, the rooms are a bit on the small side.
