This was our second visit here, this time for three nights. The hotel is very atmospheric, being an old hunting lodge, with open fires and many original features. Our room was well equipped and spacious with a four poster bed and the ensuite bathroom was huge. Both rooms were very clean. The toilet cistern took ages to fill however and... More

We came here for a few days away and it was fantastic! The hotel has a cosy homely feel and we loved the open fire in the drawing room. The food was amazing as was the service. Nothing was too much to ask for and the staff were so friendly. Special mention to Kat/Cat, who made our stay so great!... More

Nice hotel located in lovely grounds. Minutes drive from Portree. Hotel could do with a little refurbishment however we stayed on an excellent rate so cannot complain. Friendly helpful staff. Very good quality and filling 3 course meal. Bed was very squeaky and really could do with being replaced! Clean room though and nice big ensuite. Good service.

Only stayed here for 1 night on business. Stood at reception for ages waiting to check in despite repeated ringing of the bell on counter. Eventually got checked in. Did get asked if I wanted a dram before going to room. Cannot comment on food in restaurant as ate in bar. The bar meal was actually very good with goats... More

First impressions are not good as the road into the hotel from Portree is awful, full of potholes and the exterior of the hotel is in need of a paint job. The rooms are comfortable although the bed was quite soft. Food was very good and the staff were very friendly. Lovely log fires in the lounge with comfortable couches.

Thank you for reviewing Skeabost Country House Hotel on Tripadvisor. Recently we have had our main drive retarred. The drive you are referring to is no longer in use by the hotel and as stated on the signage it does direct you away from this and towards the correct drive. Last year while the weather was good the exterior of... More

We stayed in room 3 for one night in March. The room was fine although the bathroom was tiny. We got up around 6.30 and found there was no hot water despite running it for some time. We made do with cold showers, and just before we went down for breakfast the water started to get warm. A bit late... More

Fan in shower not working. Cobwebs on ceiling. Missing switch on wall. Breakfast - asked for white toast - got mixed brown & white. Scrambled eggs were lukewarm & very solid. Asked for full breakfast with black pudding & fried eggs. Only got black pudding & fried eggs. For a 3 star hotel this is poor service. I've stayed in... More
