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

We visited Skye by train and ferry so wanted to stay in the town, the only accommodation available was this hotel, everywhere else seemed to be booked although I was booking three months in advance. We had a large room and bathroom but paying £150 a night I was expecting something wonderful but it was a very ordinary room with... More

Five of us dropped in for dinner early on a Sunday evening without reservations. Portree was hopping as the weather was unseasonably gorgeous and many places were full or closed. Food was excellent - best fish and chips we had in two weeks of travel in Scotland. Service was surly. We tried to overlook it because we could tell they... More

Stayed for 2 nights in June 2014. Where do I start- limited car park, wifi not working properly, no elevator, tiny room, overheated. We had booked months ago, the owners went into liquidation ( so I lost all my prepaid money and the booking), the new owners offered me a room but I had still lost nearly A$500. The new... More

We were very disappointed with this hotel. I had booked a room months ago then called to add another room as my in-laws were joining us for our trip to Skye. I was told that only a deluxe room was available at a price much higher than our original room, as I believed it would be great I booked it.... More

The hotel was well positioned in Portree but was lacking in car parking. The room was desribed as superior but as it was above the bar the noise level before 11 pm was excessive. The room itself was quite acceptable, but at £155 per night not cheap. The food in the restaurant was good but fairly expensive; wine was very... More

I agree with the general comments about value for money. I have stayed in much nicer hotels for less. Felt like a captured audience situation. It seems to rely mainly on its food to attract people. We had a small rear room overlooking the back of some houses next door so cannot comment on the view from the front. Generally... More

First impressions were very good. The location is good, the receptionists were very helpful and the room was spacious. However, the much-vaunted wifi reception was patchy, tv reception depended on a series of attachments that didn't always work, the huge bathroom was badly finished (poor grouting, etc) and the shower didn't have anywhere to put the soap. The last straw... More
