We decided to get married on the Isle of Skye as my wife is Scottish. We looked for a quiet get away where we could both get married and stay for a few days to relax, eat good food and go for some walks. We were greeted in a friendly and professional manner, the service was fantastic throughout. We got... More

My wife and I visited at the end of November planning to stay for three nights and making use of the excellent off season rates. We were lucky enough to get a room upgrade (room 5 with four poster bed) which prompted us to add two extra nights rather than stay in the B&B we planned to move on to.... More

The staff are marvellous and the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. In an ideal location with views over the water and mountains. Food is great and very wholesome Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with a recent Dawn2Dusk photography workshop. Really enjoyed the open fires to come back to after a long day in the mountains

Beautiful hotel which has recently been refurbished to a high standard. Idyllic location 10 minute drive from Portree. Staff were all very friendly and the ambience in the hotel is lovely - loved the real fire in the drawing room! Excellent dinner in the restaurant also. I will definitely be back!

Arrived late on a Friday evening had dinner in the restaurant which was great. We were in a suite in the main building great room recently decorated. Breakfast also great. My only criticism is perhaps not enough to staff on hand for example on the Friday evening we only seem 3 staff covering bar, restaurant and reception. Would return here.

A beautifully relaxing break at the Skeabost. Lovely surroundings and the most delicious meal. The balsamic and thyme ice cream with sticky toffee pudding was a revelation. Sad to leave the side of the beautiful fire. Decoration throughout stylish and luxurious.

Afternoon tea should be totally indulgent but this was basic, consisting of an odd amount of sandwiches (there were three of us so 1 person had a sandwich less)!!!! Fruit cake, shortbread and a scone with jam and butter. Not a fancy cake in sight. However, the setting for this grand hotel is stunning and the staff were very attentive... More
