We went for lunch with friends and we were shown straight to the table even though our friends had not arrived. Our waiter, William, was charming; unlike the woman on reception who addressed everyone as if they were small children - very false and sickening. No Skye beers were available. The prices were way over the top and the portions... More

The hotel is a lovely old mansion with pretty gardens and landscaping. Upon arriving we were escorted to the tiniest, most claustrophobic room we have ever stayed in. It fit very little beyond what appeared to be a full size bed. Our suitcases barely fit in the room. My husband explained that for a 4 star hotel the room was... More

Just had 3 nights at the Duisdale Hotel. The staff were very friendly and the food excellent. They have nice gardens and a lovely view from the front of the hotel over the Sound Of Sleat. The rooms are in excellent condition and are very comfortable, the best views from a room are at the front but the side rooms... More

Stayed here for one night on our way to the Outer Hebrides in August. Lovely welcome and we were upgraded to a four poster room. Most comfortable bed we have slept in for ages. The hotel atmosphere is both formal and friendly, not stuffy at all. Staff extremely polite and helpful. We choose the fine dinning menu which included canapés... More

Choosing to stay here during my 4-day hillwalking visit to the Isle of Skye was one of the best decisions of my life. Having a full breakfast before heading out on a long day of hiking, then returning to a full, wonderfully prepared dinner is as ideal a day as you can ask for. The staff was very friendly and...

My husband and I stayed at the Duisdale house last week, August , due to the Andrew Harper recommendation. It was very disappointing , we left a day early and paid for the time we were not there . The decoration son of the whole place is very dark and somewhat drab as the decorator saw fit to pick black... More

Thank you for your review Maria. I am sorry we did not meet your expectations this time.

Given the glowing reviews this hotel had received I was disappointed with our time at the Duisdale. We had primarily picked this hotel due to the feature of being able to sail on the yacht that is predominately shown on their website. The hotel itself has a lovely location a very short walk from the beach and has large grounds... More

Thank you for your review. We are saddened to hear of your disappointment regarding the sailing trip which had to be cancelled. We have no control over the elements and have great respect for the sea. As you remember it was mentioned the night before your sailing trip that the Shipping Forecast was giving out a Warning of Gale Force... More

Duisdale House is a small, beautifully appointed hotel on the road between Kyle of Lochalsh and Armadale. The staff were attentive and helpful. The room was on the small side, but stylish and with all mod cons. Apart from the stunning view, the best bit was the food. Dinner was outstanding, and breakfast ranked among our top three hotel breakfasts... More

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel this summer; the house is beautiful, in a charming property with a lovely garden and trees around. You would need to consider booking the restaurant which serve delicious meal as well, as there are not that many options in the immediate surrounding. A place to visit without any doubt
