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!

My boyfriend and I stayed here after retrieving a voucher on Groupon. We went for one night and ended staying for 3. The staff were extremely friendly, always wanting to go out their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Very comfortable with an excellent pub where we ate except for breakfast which was excellent and included with our room rate. MidSeptember is definitely the time to go to Scotlalnd--midges are fading fast, students are back in school, tourists are diminishing and we had over a week without rain. Our stay on Skye was just as comfortable and relaxing at... More

Our B and B hostess suggested this place for dinner with vague directions. We didn't think we had found it, but we did! It's a lovely hotel with a water view and the pub was homey and relaxing. We ordered our meal and excellent SKye red beer on tap at the bar. They had a creative menu and both dishes... More

We stayed here for two nights when on a small group bus tour – and would have loved to have been able to stay on much longer. This is an AA 3-star hotel, but for us the quality far surpassed that. The hotel’s setting is stunning and the accommodation charming; from our room in the main building we had windows... More

As at least one reviewer has noted, this is a tricky one. Some love it, some do not. The location is, indeed, marvellous. It is also extremely inconvenient if you have no car. Residents are at the mercy of a slightly hit and miss approach to hospitality.......it depends which part of the complex you're staying in, which staff members you... More

This was the second time that McKinlay Kidd had booked us into this hotel, so we had high expectations and we were not disappointed. Delightful room, plenty of space, clean and comfortable.
