Staff was great and attentive, the rooms were small but clean and comfortable. I had a great time while spending a few nights on Skye. Be careful though, the stairs up to the rooms are narrow and very steep. There are two entrances so you can usually avoid a flight be coming in the back entrance. The location is great,... More

The Caledonian was a highlight to our trip a spacious North facing room with a view and very reasonable rates. Staff are brilliant and very friendly. The pub downstairs is worth a visit as well, very professional and friendly bar staff, in particular Ruraidh made sure my glass was always full. Awesome time.

An ideal eating house with very welcoming and friendly local staff. Good menu choice with the Surf & Turf rib's eye steak the best! Excellent value for money. The bar serves a lovely pint and wine of your choice. Dorothy Anne is a good host with plenty local knowledge.

My wife and I stayed at the Caledonian Hotel for an overnight stay whilst in Portree. If your travelling heavy, don't try to carry it up the stairs from the High Street. There is access from the hotels rear car park. The rooms are comfortable, impeccably clean and equipped with a large TV, and the usual appointments including free WiFi.... More

While the rooms are described "basic", we found ours to be well- appointed, tidy and very acceptable. I would suggest that you take your morning shower early. (Either the boiler is limited capacity or someone else hogged all the hot water.) The staff here are real gems. Bright, cheery and very professional - we found them to be a true... More

The Caledonia is a Nice and clean hotel that has staff that are friendly and very helpful. They take the time out of their busy days to make sure that every customer is cared for and then some. The breakfast was very good with some of the best black pudding in the country so far. I would recommend a stay... More

This hotel is basic but beautifully maintained. Room was immaculate and breakfast appetising and freshly made. The owners of this hotel are lovely and couldn't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Would stay here again if visiting Portree.

Stayed for two nights here and were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The staff and management are so friendly and welcoming and honestly couldn't do enough for us. The twin room we had was lovely and clean with extremely comfortable beds - we slept the whole night through without being disturbed by any street noise although... More

Having lived and worked in Skye for two years this is the only hotel I will stay at when I come up to visit for a holiday or work. All the staff are very friendly and helpful with anything you need. Breakfast served in the morning is excellent. The rooms are big with a high standard of cleanliness. Location wise,... More

I felt like I was sleeping in a closet. The bed barely fit in the room. And yet the bathroom was large. However the room was decorated nicely. It can be difficult to find your way around this property, but the exterior does ad to the shoreline. The front desk is very helpful and it is the only place where... More
