We recently spent 3 nights at the Caledonian (the Cally) and we enjoyed our stay. The breakfasts are huge (a bit too much for our small appetite) and the staff is very friendly. The location is great in Portree, just a stone throw from the main village square.

We traveled by train to Kyle of Lochalsh, then took the bus to Portree. We were pleased that the Caledonian Hotel, known locally as the Cally, was only about 100m from the Square in Portree where the bus stops. If you enter from the street, beside The Caledonian Cafe, three flights of stairs await you before you reach the bedrooms.... More

I recently had cause to stay at the Caley while working in Portree for nine days. I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel. I stayed in a very comfortable room which was spotless. All the staff were friendly and most helpful. The food was superb, in fact I never ate anywhere else during my stay. I cannot speak highly... More

As a family of 5, we had 2 rooms and stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were cosy, neat and tidy and the breakfast was good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a very good location, close to amenities. Highly recommended.

I found this hotel as I was looking at Google maps for places to visit and stay on the Isle of Skye. I hit gold! I put a high priority on communication and all exchanges with this hotel were quickly and clearly answered. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. It had an at home feel instead of many that... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights, room was quite small but very clean. Bed was comfy and shower was powerful, had a great couple of nights sleep! Staff were very friendly and couldn't have helped anymore! Breakfast was fab, definitely set you up for the day. Would recommend a stay here, great value for money!

Being just around the corner from the bus stop this is a convenient hotel to get to if travelling by public transport. A traditional hotel built presumably when tourism on Skye started to take off, hence it's central location. There were five of us in an all male group, so we had two twin rooms and a single. My room... More
