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

We had a wonderful stay at Tarven. Maria and Jerry were fantastic hosts and could not do enough for us - offering us lifts into Portree and sharing their local knowledge with us etc. The breakfast was lovely. So much choice - a real feast! The room was lovely and spacious and we can't wait to return.

Have done loads of B&Bs over the years and this rates as one of the highest. From the moment you arrive you feel at home. The accommodation is of the highest standard and the location is ideally situated on the Staffin Road just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Portree. The owner Maria is a great host and went...

We were tired and thirsty on arrival. Hostess welcomed us warmly and took great care of us. Made to feel at home immediately. Included in some local activities. Hostess went out of her way for us on several occasions. Common room is very comfortable. Would highly recommend Tarven to others.

If you're looking for an anonymous experience in a bland B&B, this is not the place for you. But if you're looking for a warm, welcoming hostess and a well situated comfortable B&B, you can't do better than this. Maria Fox is the friendliest, most generous soul imaginable. She will go far out of her way to make your stay... More

Situated in a very quite place, but that means some 15-min walk uphill from Portree (OK if you are travelling lightly, but not that easy to carry your things there). The place itself has nice big rooms, wi-fi access etc. The breakfast is not cooked (i.e. hot), but plentiful all the same. Maria, the hostess, is very friendly and extremely... More

We were thrilled with this B&B! The owners were just lovely - so helpful, offering some great tips (check out Neist - it's amazing!). The breakfast was great - nothing over the top but quite tasty. The location was also perfect, as it was just a 10-minute walk to the center of town but far enough away that there was... More

We stayed at the Tarven B&B for 4 nights, while day hiking on the Isle of Skye. The room was very clean, nice wine glasses, a fine breakfast, with great yogurt, a huge choice of cereals, and meats and cheeses, in a wonderful sun room. Our hostess, Maria, was super. She even let us use her clothes line to drying... More
