We had a nice 2 night stay in the Carbost room, on the ground floor. We were a bit concerned that it might be noisy, being right on a main street, but it was not. The room and bathroom were small, but were spotless and everything functioned perfectly. The large bed ensured a good night's sleep for us. Breakfast was... More

Thank you Charlotte & Bill for the wonderful opportunity to stay at your B&B! My daughter and & were treated like family and our room was spacious and very comfortable. We loved the delicious breakfast that we shared with other travelers in the morning and we valued all the terrific advice that Charlotte gave us on how to enjoy Skye.... More

My husband and I plus another couple stayed in this bed and breakfast for two nights in July. The place is spotlessly clean, all toiletries and towels were more than adequate, and the breakfast huge and varied. Our bedrooms and bathrooms were very large in comparison to most other bed and breakfast rooms, with reading materials suppplied for every taste.... More

I've been to several bed and breakfasts, but this was by far my favorite. Charlotte and Bill were so welcoming and friendly; I felt right at home. They made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, and the view was spectacular. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and there were many... More

We had an overall very pleasant experience at Ben Tianavaig. The hosts were extremely friendly and sent us a helpful email before arriving with recommendations for Portree and Skye - several of which we tried and were pleased with. The B&B itself is located centrally and has a nice view over the town. Breakfast was generous and very good. The... More

My husband and I recently spent two weeks traveling around England and Scotland and fell in love with the Isle of Skye. The Ben Tianavaig B & B was very nice and clean. However, we both felt like we were intruding in someone's house. We were asked to remove our shoes upon entering which we found to be uncomfortable. There... More

Had a wonderful stay at this lovely B&B. It's in a great spot with amazing views, very comfortable room, really helpful and welcoming hosts and a great breakfast too (with a great selection and some delicious specials). Made our trip to Portree a real highlight - we'll be back!

Were in this hotel this week, two couples enjoying a trip away, the first surprise was being asked to remove our shoes, politely, I will say, but to say it was surprising!! I would say this set the tone for the visit as mine host was not very pleased when I refused and, for the rest of our trip was... More
