We couldn't recommend this b&b enough. It is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Ruth and Andy went out their way to make us feel at home and were always on hand to give tourist information. There is a great selection to choose from for breakfast and the portions filled us up until dinner. We would definitely stay here again and... More

My two friends and I spent a night here and it was one of the best places we have stayed. Ruth and Allan were lovely and beyond accommodating to our schedule. The rooms were clean, beautiful, and had everything we needed. The provided tea service and shortbread cookies in each room were such a thoughtful touch. Location was perfect- in... More

We loved our stay at Duirinish Guest House! Lovely rooms, friendly hosts, walking distance to Portree, great breakfast, even a fridge for guests to keep wine and/or picnic supplies cool. Highly recommended!

It was wonderful! 5 stars The breakfasts were very good, the rooms were lovely. The hotel is a 10 minutes walk to the Portree and for me this is the perfect location - very quiet and with great views.

Having stayed at Duirinish GH in August, 2009, we thought we would stay again June 18&19, 2015. Ownership changed between our visits, and we are so pleased that Ruth and Allan took over this nice facility. They are most gracious hosts, take obvious pride in their home/business, and provide exemplary service. Within 20 minutes of our arrival Allan had secured... More

We stayed two nights last week and had a brilliant time. Ruth and Allan were wonderful hosts. Beds were really comfortable and the room really clean and tidy with lots of lovely little touches. The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were to die for and I highly recommend them. Also loads of restaurant cafe choice in Portree but I suggest... More

Lovely rooms with a great breakfast and helpful hosts who dried our laundry, gave us directions and were generally awesome. The place itself is gorgeous, and the B&B close enough to walk to a great restaurant.
