We stayed in Tarven for three days. It is situated in the outskirts of Portree (within walking distance from town centre) in a quiet place with its own car park. Mrs Maria Fox, the hostess, is a lovely and warmhearted woman who made everything possible to make our stay comfortable. She even booked in advance our dinner in local restaurants... More

Maria made us very welcome, and the lounge and tv room exclusively for guests made us very relaxed after a days exploring - even a small fridge to put a couple of drinks. Just 10 minutes walk from Portree, it has a rural feel with a large manicured garden. Would definitely recommend it.

We loved staying at the Tarven B&B. Maria was so friendly, accommodating, and helpful. We loved being a little walk away from Portree, in a quiet area. We were traveling without a car, and it was close enough to enjoy the walk. The en-suite bathroom was great--nice, hot shower, and very clean. There was plenty of space, and the breakfast... More

Although the B&B was on the outskirts of town, with a car it proved to no problem. Very clean with a nice breakfast and very friendly owner. She was very helpful with restaurant reservations and touring details. I especially enjoyed Bruce, the pup. Threatened to take me home in my carry on. LOL All in all a nice Scottish experience.

We stayed for three nights at the start of July and would definitely recommend. One rainy afternoon we watched a DVD from the collection sitting on the sofa and felt very much at home. A real family home and a lovely welcoming atmosphere. Our room was large with a very clean en-suite (good hot shower). Continental breakfast was fantastic, spoilt... More

Stayed here with my family for two nights at the end of May. The weather was very kind to us during our visit to Portree. The Tarvern B&B is situated about ten minutes walk from the center of town. The b&b is spotlessly clean and very well maintained. We had two bedrooms en suite which were fairly big and well... More

We were in Tarven for three days and liked everything about the house, situated a little out of town but not too far to walk in a few minutes, about the room, about the breakfast, about the use of the lounge, about Maria Fox and her family. She is phenomenally friendly and helpful, and always finds the time in-between for... More

We had an absolut wonderful stay in Portree with Maria and her family. The rooms are very chosy and comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and delicious, a wide range of fresh fruits, cheese, ham, bacon, toast, croissants etc. We felt so welcome, it was like having a second home. Next time we will return of sure!

Maria received us with a warm welcome and provided us an excellent stay in Portree. She gives good tips on restaurants and places to visit on Skye. Her breakfast is served in a lovely and spacey room with view on the garden and is a perfect start for a busy day. Would definitely go back there.

Thanks to Maria Fox, the hostess of this nice B&B, for a wonderful stay in the Isle of Skye. Tarven B&B is in a good location, the rooms are very nice. Maria has a very nice kitchen/lounge room for her guests to read or watch TV that is included with your room. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful. And, of... More
