The setting was marvellous. In the tiny hamlet, looking out to the islands and lighthouse (can walk to it at low tide across the rocks). Right in the heart of the local community too with locals at the pub. Very welcoming. Restaurant and pub food both excellent.

Our room was quiet and comfortable and the location is really special. Bar food was a bit pricey but that is the case all over the Isle of Skye. That said, all four of us enjoyed a tasty dinner. One of our group us vegetarian and she was looked after well. Breakfast in the sun rooms was really nice. Rooms... More

Location stunning, staff delightful, very good restaurant and bar food. You can sense the Gaeldom. Wide selection of wines. And special mention must be made of the house whiskies www.gaelicwhisky.com The rooms are homely if perhaps a little tired. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. The bar food was a bit expensive - but then it seems food is expensive all... More

Great location but this business is living on it. The food is tasteless, the wine options terrible. The rooms are dated, fousty, no TV but City prices. There is no interest by the staff in dealing with complaints. Clearly the owners aren't in the least interested in providing what should be a fantastic experience set in this beautiful location. It... More

Really lovely time spent here. The room is three star but a very good three star. The hotel is very traditional and perfect location. Had fish and chips in the bar which was superb. The band came an hour late and no one seemed bothered least of all the band, but that was the laid back atmosphere of the whole... More
