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

The location of this hotel is as central as it gets and really close to the harbour and their neighbor is Co-operative supermarket (which is great). There is also a free parking to the hotel. The room was very clean, had big screen TV, showers that looks like we were the first to use them, big comfy bad, Tea/coffee/cookies and... More

My daughter and I stayed here as part of a tour we booked - we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Portree - located right in town and in walking distance of all the restaurants and pubs. The room was cozy and very comfortable - big flat screen tv and wifi in the room. This is... More

I'm just back from 5 nights stay bed and breakfast at the Urquhart Caledonian Hotel in Portree on the Isle of Syke. I was there for work and the owner Dot really made my stay - this really is a home from home. My room was modern with nice flat screen tv, comfy with all the needed accessories and a... More

My friends and I received a warm, friendly welcome from the proprietors and other staff. They all went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed and were attentive to their guests. The hotel has a lovely relaxed family led feel to it. The roil was clean, comfortable and well stocked. The seafood platter and fresh lobster... More

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend in this family run Hotel, and cannot speak highly enough of it. We received an amazing friendly welcome and were shown to a really nice twin bedded room which was well decorated and spotlessly clean, with a lovely ensuite shower room. The shower was spacious, and lovely white towels replaced... More

Well located in Portree, to a walking distance of all restaurants, the port, the tourist information office, etc. It is a small hotel with no luxuries, but clean and comfortable. Many rooms overlook the hotel roof, so you won't find memorable views here, but you will find no noise at all from the traffic in the street. The hotel also... More
