This is how it should be done. Classic decor, cosy atmosphere, welcoming staff, great service. I was almost put off by no TV's in the bedrooms (a daunting prospect if you're travelling alone) but the evening flew by, helped with a fantastic meal by the open fire and moderately good wifi (at least, good for the Western Isles!). Breakfast also... More

This is a delightful small hotel with cosy rooms featuring 4 poster beds & (if facing the bay) splendid views of small fishing boats and the cove from your bedroom window. Breakfast is wonderful & the staff are friendly and helpful. No television but after dinner at the fabulous little pub next door, I was happy to go without.

Stayed in a cottage around the corner. Dropped in for dinner one evening. Food was excellent and the Skye beer outstanding. Only disappointment was that dogs are not allowed in bar when meals are being served. This was the case in a few Skye pubs.

First visit to this hotel despite numerous visits to Skye. Our only regret was that we had only booked one night as the location recharged our batteries after a busy city life and the staff and food were excellent. Forget the phones and Wifi and just enjoy the little bay coming to life as dawn breaks and the comfy beds.... More

We loved this hotel, beautiful location (even in the wind and rain), friendly service, great bar and stunning views. Our room (15) was in a separate building and was lovely, really cosy with views across the sound. There was no tv in the room but why go to such a great wee place and watch tv?? Very peaceful, comfortable reception... More

On Skye we stayed at Hotel Eilean Iarman , a small hotel at which Carol had stayed during a trip in 1992. Our room was a cunning upstairs/downstairs suite in a long low building containing 4-5 such accommodations. Entering through the dual-door/split-door entryway we found a small living room with bath behind, and upstairs was a queen-bed sleeping room with... More

We loved this hotel! Great view, wonderful hospitality. We ate at the hotel twice. Once in main dining room and once in the pub. It is charming and fun . The staff were very helpful. They told us where to go, made our ferry arrangements and found a way to accommodate us in the pub even though it was packed!

Stayed at this picturesque small hotel for a night in a short autumn break at the Isle of Skye. Attached to the hotel is a small pub that is also visited by the locals which servers a fair bar meal, a good pint of bitter and a glass of the local whisky. It is nice to see how two rooms... More

Loved the wonderful views at this hotel and the rural, yet sophisticated style. Fine dining is available, as well as a fun pub, all in the main building. Super comfy bed and crackling fires in the cozy lounge, dining room and pub. LOVED iT!
