We really loved staying at the Caledonian. The owners/staff were very gracious and welcoming and the breakfast was great. The room was spotlessly clean and neat. It's not a "luxury" hotel, but lovely and local. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to Skye.

This hotel could not be more ideally located in central Portree. However, I thought the mattress and pillows were too lumpy, and there is no elevator, so be prepared to carry your bags up three flights of winding staircase. The wifi worked fine in the rooms. Take the back parking lot exit that steers you down the alley to the... More

We spent two nights here while traveling through Skye, and were impressed by the care taken by owners (and sisters) Dot and Aileen, who make sure every guest has the best time possible. The room, while basic (as are most, we assume, on the island) was spotlessly clean, with an excellent shower. The hot breakfasts are freshly made and delicious,... More

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.
