Viewfield House is the perfect place to stay if you want to get off the treadmill of life! The room was very comfortable and I can live without a TV, the lounge with the log fire was very welcoming and cosy with family photos etc - very easy to fall asleep! The food and service was first class and our... More

I wish we had more time at Viewfield House. This inn is absolutely gorgeous. The candlelight dinner was the best meal we had in our whole week in Scotland, and breakfast did not disappoint either. The location seems like it would be ideal for getting into Portree; unfortunately we were too comfortable at the inn, so we never ventured away.... More

the room was good and the bathroom fine albeit a bit old fashioned. Breakfast was good, the girl who seemed to do everything from checking in/out, breakfast, drinks etc etc was a marvel and seemed to run the place in her own. If you want a place to stay with plenty character this is the hotel for you ! About... More

We really wanted to like Viewfield House, but it just felt uncomfortable and unwelcoming to us. Pros for us: It's in a beautiful location and is an impressive big old stone mansion fairly close to town. Our room was large with a great view, comfy beds and plenty of hangers in the closet. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Parking is... More

We had booked 2 nights stay at Viewfield House on Skye; this is in a quiet but good location just outside Portree, with parking at the hotel. I found the building rather dark and dismal, but our room on the second floor was clean and comfortable. The food and service were both excellent and the Lord was a charming host...and... More

This is a beautiful Manor House set in the woodlands about a 10 minutes easy walk to the centre port area of Portree. We we greeted by a charming young lady who showed us to our room which was on the top floor up many steep stairs. (She even helped with carrying the baggage to our room). The room was... More

The owner's family has been in this home for over 200 years. This large home is in a beautiful, quiet wooded area, that is about a 15 minute walk to the harbor in Portree. Our room is large and comfortable, with lovely old furniture. The breakfasts are wonderful - choices of cooked eggs, bacon, fish, etc. etc. and a buffet... More

Admittedly, this is a quaint Victorian-style B&B but it lacks some personal warmth and attention to guests. Compared to other properties we have stayed in in Scotland it is pricey. In particular, we were left disappointed with the service. We came down to breakfast at 0830AM having been told that breakfast was served strictly from 0830-0930 (not much flexibility!), only...

This was a delayed Mothers Day present from my children. We rang to book months ago and this was the first time available (2 Sept 14), which, for us, was OK. We drove to Skye and just before you get to Portree there is a petrol station on the right and an opening into a wooded drive on the left... More

If you want a real taste of Scotland, you can do no better than, staying at The Viewfield house. We got married in Portree, and spent a few wonderful nights here on our travels around Scotland. The hotel is full of historic charm, from the lounge with big open fires in the evening to the lovely dinning room, where guests... More
