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.

We only went into the bar for coffee and a warm up on a very cold day but the previously mentioned Antipodean lady, when I asked for 2 coffees, replied "Coffee only comes with shortbread", like it or lump it apparently! I was then charged £7 for a cafetiere of coffee and 4 small pieces of shortbread. This arrived on... More

I love this hotel. Never stayed in a hotel before on the Isle of Skye.. this place was amazing! Its like time just stands still... huge bedrooms with big, high plush poster beds, heating in the bathroom, real log fireplaces in the living room. The pub attached is another great place to spend quiet, cold evenings by the fireplace. Amazing... More

Spent a relaxing 2 nights visiting family on skye and stayed here courtesy of an ITISON voucher, rooms in the garden house were lovely, spotlessly clean, and with Arran Aromatics toiletries! Breakfast was delicious, and we had the tasting menu in the hotel restaurant which was excellent, although it was all that was on offer in the restaurant. However one... More

We spent a night here and it was a welcome surprise. The location was wonderful with a spectacular view of the lighthouse from our suite. The suite was very large. The bathroom and sitting area are on the first floor and the bedroom is on the second level. The restaurant again was a perfect experience with wonderful tastes. The hostess... More

Great trip to Sleat in January and the Hotel Eilean Iarmain was exactly what we were looking for. Location-wise, it is a magical setting, and pretty good for walks, sights and not far off the bridge. It's got wood-panelled rooms with stuffed animals and log fires, but all very tastefully done. Bar at the back where you can drink or... More
