Good 1. Location. Great views to Ornsay Island and beyond. 2. Staff. On our first night two young girls seemed to be running the place. Very efficient and smiley, despite the obvious stress they were under. 3. Breakfast. Good choice, good quality. 4. Am Pranan bar. Very atmospheric. Good buzz. 5. Room size (room 12, Garden House was spacious). 6.... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Skye. We stayed in a deluxe room that had a sitting area and bathroom downstairs and a gorgeous bedroom upstairs. Fantastic view of the lighthouse. The hotel also has regular rooms and I am sure the view is just as spectacular. Despite all the comings and goings the room was very quiet... More

Just returned from Skye and had the joy of staying in one of the suites. The accommodation had a living area and bathroom downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. The double bed was so comfortable with a fantastic view towards the lighthouse and the little bay in front. The suite was clean and as well as tea and coffee making facilities... More

I've got to say arriving up the road to the hotel I thought "this looks lovely !" , entering the main hotel and noting a sign for a tweed shop and a whisky shop on site made me also very optimistic but sadly things went downhill almost immediately .. We checked into our room and first thing we were suprised... More

Our room in the Garden House had a beautiful view of the small harbor and the Sound of Sleat. The main hotel building is warm and welcoming, with a comfortable lounge. We had dinner both nights in the hotel's pub, which has excellent food and friendly service. Several menu options were easily converted to gluten-free, which I appreciated. The chef... More

This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed. Right on the water, with a view of the snug harbor and fishing boats, with snow-capped mountains further out -- it was magical. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed dinner in the pub twice. This is a classic Gaelic pub, with good food and drink and good crack... More

Just returned from a four day break at the Eilean Iarmain and what an experience! The hotel must have one of the best locations on Skye - almost touching the waters of the Sound of Sleat. We stayed in a superior bedroom in the Garden House with its 'olde worlde' furnishings but with a very modern bathroom with all modern... More

This was my second time staying at EI but my first in the Garden House which I really enjoyed. Previously I have stayed in the suites which I actually feel are smaller being up/down on two floors. Our room in the Garden House was gorgeous with beautiful period furniture, sumptuous views and a fine bathroom. Equipped with excellent amenities and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while touring the Isle of Skye. Idyllic view out into the bay. We stayed in the garden house room 10 which has a nice little sitting area. Staff at the bar were very accommodating and friendly and the food was good. but I would recommend it to anyone coming over from the mainland.
