A wonderful base to explore the Isle of Skye. Sadly the weather didn't cooperate for us to enjoy the Isle but we had a very comfortable Suite (not in the old house) where we could properly relax. Though we didn't try the main restaurant the pub was excellent. The staff was very accommodating.

Made very welcome on arrival, comfortable room, welcome whisky on a cold evening. Very enjoyable breakfast with full choice. I would recommend this hotel for a visit any time of the year. Beautiful location with wonderful views across the Sleat Peninsula. A visit to the Gaelic College or Clan Donald Centre are recommended.

What a view! What a place! Two wonderful hosts! What a pub! The best place we've been in our 7-day trip in Scotland: a superb hotel with an astonishing view (sea and the lighthouse), wonderful food in the restaurant/pub!

My wife and I visited for dinner and enjoyed their Christmas taster menu. The hotel has a great traditional feel and a wonderful vibe. Manager Neil offered a warm welcome and the various rooms are a real step back in time but in a good way. Food varied from good to great but I'm not sure any awards will come... More

We generally hold our work Christmas dinner in Eilean Iarmain for around 8 to10 people and last year we opted for the bar menu which was fair but slightly disappointing, so this year we decided on the restaurant menu and it was first class from start to finish , my beef starter was excellent and main of sea bass top...

This hotel was outstanding! Extremely freindly and helpful staff, delicious food in both restaurants, good Scotch selection, spacious rooms, hot showers, towel warmers and very comfortable beds! What more could you ask for after a day spent outside in typical Scotland weather?

We came here late November not very hopeful of having good weather but thought it would be an experience nonetheless. Most of the places we had looked at were either booked out or shut (the majority were shut for the winter). This place feels like it's right on the edge of the island which in a sense it is, but...

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!).

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.
