It's a small place ( 2 rooms) in the beautiful town Portree on the Isle of Skye.It's only a short walk to the centre of the town and the harbour, so you don't need a car to reach shops and restaurants. All the rooms are lovingly decorated and the host, Catriona, does everything possible to make your stay as wonderful... More

Pros: - Owner, Catriona, made us feel like we had a home away from home. She is one of the kindest, most attentive B&B owners I have ever met in all my years of traveling. She is also an EXCELLENT cook. Her homemade compote was a morning favorite. It was just like my grandmother used to make. I shared how... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night. As soon as we approached the house, we were warmly welcomed by Mrs M; as soon as we saw the room, we could not help exclaim "how lovely!" Mrs M was extremely nice and attentive. The room was very well kept and the amenities were complete. The breakfast was amazing too, and... More

How can I describe this fabulous B&B? This is definitely the best B&B I have ever stayed! Near the center of the town, quiet surroundings, beautifully decorated rooms, a serene view of the port from my window, and above all, sincere hospitality of Ms Catriona. My room was a fairy-tale one. Not only beautiful furniture and cloths, I found petals... More

We spent 3 nights here in the early June monsoon on Skye. This is really what B&Bs should be like. Drumroll is on.a residential road on the hill just above Portree, just a 5 minute walk into town. The house is peaceful, spotlesslessly clean, bright and welcoming. The beds comfortable, the breakfasts in the conservatory fuel you up for the... More

LOVELY lady. Could not have been nicer. My sister and I had to leave very early, and she left corn flakes and juice for us. Highly recommend. Room was very nice, and one can walk to the center of town with no problem

Our family spent two nights here recently and the stay here made our trip to Skye truly special. Catriona is a marvelous host (She's quite knowledgable about Portree and the island; be sure to ask her) and her house is charming and quaint. Breakfasts are scrumptious and filling.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2014

Many reviewers hand out five star ratings too easily. To deserve an excellent rating, a property must be consistently exceeding expectations and not just doing their routine duties as expected. Catriona Matheson's Drumorell Bed and Breakfast defines excellence in this category. It is the attention to detail, cleanliness, special touches, respect of privacy, offers to go above and beyond...that brought... More
