We spent 3 nights at the hotel as a celebration of my husband's 65th birthday. We were welcomed by Nicola who was so helpful and friendly. We were in the Garden House in an upstairs room with a lovely view over the water. It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff were all lovely and the food was terrific.... More

Came across this little gem when I was looking for a special treat my girlfriend for Valentines day. We were made very welcome by Neil the manager who is an absolute star! Our room was in the Garden House which is adjacent to the main building but that wasn't a problem. The room was very comfortable and warm and nicely... 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

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

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?
