The only reason I gave this B&B a 3 rating instead of a 4 was because in out room the sink was in the bedroom, separate from the toilet and shower. I was part of a party of 4 so we were not able to eat breakfast in the sunroom but the food was very yummy and even though the... More

Spent 1 night in this conveniently located B&B in Portree. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are quite small. Our host, Barbara, was friendly and helpful. Quick with suggestions for dinner, (The Granary was excellent) and did a couple of loads of laundry for us (fee), so helpful after 8 days on the road. Breakfast was excellent.

We stayed with Barbara for one night while visiting Portree. Barbara is a great host, served up a lovely breakfast and was so helpful suggesting places to visit. Our room was very well appointed, fresh milk in a wee fridge with homemade shortbread to have with a cup of tea. The place to stay if in Portree.

My friend and I stayed in twin room number 4 at the end of a three day road trip. It was fine for the one night however - in comparison with the other two b&bs we stayed at on Lewis & Harris, this b&b definitely lacks of that something special that would make it qualify as "lovely".

I have finally come to the realisation that Portree is maybe not the best town to stay in when on Skye. Everything was absolutely fine and the owners friendly enough, however, it lacked that little extra spark to make it special. Looks like the owners are looking to sell, so this may be reflected in the general feel...?

Warm welcome. Outstanding room beautiful decor. Bed very firm, perfect after a days driving especially if you have back problems. Short walk to town and petrol a hundred yards away. Breakfast excellent. Full Scottish breakfast available with lots of lovely fruit selection. Would not hesitate to stay again.

We booked in here on sameday notice when the weather finished off out excursion to Uist. Great price, absolutely superb warm and cosy ensuite room. The guest lounge was spacious and cosy, breakfast was fantastic (the kippers were amazing and my girlfriend rated the poached eggs extremely highly) and the owners extremely helpful with great local knowledge
