I had seafood dinner at the hotel . The staffs are friendly and warm. The flavour of food is so so (the food materials are good and fresh). I hate the restaurant toilet (male) which is dirty and smelly, and the hand soap bottle is problematic and the liquid sprayed up to my sweater. hope the staff to improve the... More

We were booked for 2 nights at the Bosville on a hiking tour. When we arrived there was an issue with our room but the staff treated us to a beer in the bar & quickly worked it out. Room was very comfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was excellent & we loved the bar there with its wonderfully cozy feeling.

This hotel is well placed in the heart of the lovely town of Portree. The views to the harbour are superb. The room allocated had a view to the garden wall - not at all the best room. The room is well appointed but the beds are on the soft side. The breakfast has a SMALL continental offering and a... More

My overall thoughts are neutrality when it comes to this hotel. Staff is pleasant enough and everything else is more or less adequate. We were there during a big heat wave and the 3rd floor was a sauna. They had less than adequate fans available and only one window which opened 3 or 4 inches. It was almost impossible to... More

This centrally located hotel is in need of serious investment. The room appointments are worn and need replaced. We were in the rear over the kitchen so there was considerable noise in the evening, but it stopped promptly at 10 pm. The phone and wifi were out of commission - we didn't care that much about either. In fact, there... More

The bar offers a good variety of food. Prices are average for a bar. It is family friendly and there is a children's menu. The Quality of food was very good. Staff service was excellent. The hotel is 5 min walk from the main square in portree. There is a nice view over the harbour across the street.

Booked this hotel for one night prior to going to Harris. Staff very friendly but that's as far as it goes. No wifi, no phone, TV not working, massive stains on the carpet, wallpaper on the ceiling of the bathroom peeling off and all for £165 a night! The only positive was that the towels were snow white! I can't... More

The old owner went bust. No wonder. The hotel is in urgent need of refurbishment. The rooms are not clean, the furniture is very old and the carpets seem to contain more dirt than fabric. Could be a fine place, once the new owner decides to invest some money.

Stayed 1 light last night, it sounds like everyone gets the same story then - wifi and phones have just gone down! Even the temporary one didn't work! It is easier to list the good points! Staff were all nice and helpful, everything was clean, breakfast was fairly good but slightly limited, how can you offer a full Scottish breakfast... More
