Great location of course, good range of bar food, great selection of malts and good beer. One meal was overcooked, greasy table, slightly grubby ladies toilet and a guy was overcharged for a packet of crisps & a pint of Tennants. The music in the bar could do with an update.

We stayed at this hotel in early April, there was still quite a lot of snow on the hills around the area, it's on the Isle of Skye, the Cuillin Mountains are just across the road from it, this is an excellent place to stay for, cyclists, hill walkers, mountaineers, kayakers, scuba divers, or in fact also for old people...

We eloped to the Bridge at the Sligachan Hotel a few weeks ago. We initially booked it because of the extraordinary views and location, but what made the occasion so special was the staff. They went to incredible lengths to make sure that our day was special. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we felt genuinely welcomed and... More

Dear Guest, It was a pleasure to help make your wedding day special for you both. like you say, we are not and do not want to be the fanciest hotel on the island. What we do want is to give people an experience befitting of our location, and it's amazing to hear that we achieved that for you. We... More

Spent the better part of the day hiking in sheeting rain at the Talisker Bay hike and the Fairy pools ( both super cool). Drinking back to Broadford and spied a sign for Cullin Brewery. Had drinks and lunch to warm up ya this gem super fun. Extensive whisky menu and microbrew selection. Seemed to be a lot of hikers... More

Dear guest, Thank you ever so much for your glowing review. The bar was built for hikers like yourself to shelter on days like the one you experienced. With over 400 malt whiskies, our own beer and yummy food, what more could you want on a dreich Skye day?! All the best, John. More

Where to start? What a a great weekend we had at this hotel and adjacent bar. The selection of whisky is just out of this world - best my wife and I have seen yet. The staff were great. A girl named DI was just excellent when it came to drink, food and things to do in regards to with... More

Stayed 2 nights with friends from USA. Booked superior rooms which were huge, and probably worth the premium. Hotel has a real feeling of a country house, and though located away from any town, and thankfully away from other hotels, in had real charm. Unfortunately the weather was grim so spent one afternoon by the cosy fire and did some... More

My husband and I have been returning to this hotel for several years. The location is second to none and the hotel itself offers tasty, laid back meals in Seaumas Bar or great Scottish meals in the restaurant. The main draw is the friendly staff, where 'Highland Hospitality' can be expected from start to finish. Don't miss the small museum... More

Arriving here early and expecting a 'your rooms not ready' we were taken to our room. 'Just check in formally when you are ready'...what a great start. Evening time into the adjacent bar, part of the hotel, with 400 whisky's! A big day on the hill to follow meant we only managed a few of them but the staff were... More

Pleasant hotel set in the beautiful Isle of Skye, perfectly situated to explore the island both on foot (plenty of local walks), and by car. The staff were welcoming and helpful, and the room was comfortable and clean. There were some issues with the wifi during our stay, but the staff still managed to get us online. The bar next...

The wifi has recently been upgraded, with 2 new routers installed and it is once tuned up should provide a better service than before. However, our remoteness is always going to cause issues...
