Lovely, relaxing stay in very comfortable rooms (we had to switch rooms for the second night which we knew about and this was all sorted for us). Ruth was very friendly and provided a good choice for breakfast. The B&B and its garden was very well kept. Easy walk into Portree for evening meals and a good location to visit... More

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

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.
