Room had comfy double bed, kettle, free wifi, hairdryer, tv and a great shower - very powerful =) Excellent location only a few mins walk to the shops. I had a decent cooked breakfast in the morning that set me up... More

Lovely relaxed two night stay over Hogmanay with large group of friends at Coolin View BB in Portreee. Great breakfast, good coffee, comfy beds and great hosts. Eddie, Elaine and Jambo very flexible and great with all the teenagers. Good central location and view would have been great if weather was better.

Friendliest staff you could wish for, amazing views from my room window, warm, comfortable. Looking forward to going back again. The B & B is already great, so I can't wait to see the improvements this year with a new restaurant area and a refurb!

I stayed at the Coolin View for three nights last week whilst on business in Portree. This homely, comfortable and exceptionally clean bed and breakfast is a fine example of the very best that Scotland's hospitality industry can offer. Every member of the team I encountered was very obliging, friendly and unfailingly helpful. I travel to this beautiful area approximately... More

Our room was small with a good view across the harbour felt it was a little overpriced compared with what we had paid elsewhere I guess that is due to its location. Staff friendly breakfast adequate perhaps some fruit would have been nice.

I'm glad I chose this B&B after doing a lot of research (mostly on tripadvisor). The place is clean - basic, but clean. The B&B overlooks the harbour and you can request a room with a view (if available). I think rooms 5 and 8 have the best views. The town centre is only four minutes walk, and there are... More

I spent 5 nights at Coolin View. The room and facilities were clean and tidy. The breakfast was more than adequate with an option to change your meal daily. Great location and parking available. Wonderful hospitality, lovely owner and staff.
