We stayed here when we photographed in the Isle of Skye. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet, but not overly large. Our staff were spectacular; they were very helpful and made us feel welcome. There is a small bar area in which we could chat before dinner or later. Meals were great with many selections. We had bagged lunches... More

What more can you ask? Sligachan was used as our base for our photography workshop with Muench Worksops, because it is rather centrally located for all one would want to photograph on Skye. The rooms are comfortable, not huge, not tiny either. The staff were excellent, and made us feel welcome and at home. The bar area is very easy... More

The hotel has a history with a room devoted to papers and photos about the people and the hotel's beginnings. For the contemporary visitor, you can make your own memories in a cozy and comfortable pub for warming up after a tramp outdoors, or enjoy a delicious meal in the dining room. The staff is gracious and helpful without being... More

The hotel is perfectly situated for views of some of the Cuillin mountains. They brew their own beer (they had two available on tap) and there is an outdoors kids play area. You can eat at the bar, which we did, or in the restaurant; the menu is the same. Sadly we were disappointed in our dining experience. The barmaids... More

Oh hello there, I am sorry your experience here at Sligachan was not satisfactory. In fact the allegation of food poisoning is about as serious as it gets in the hospitality industry. I find it absolutely unthinkable that you would not get in touch with us immediately after experiencing such difficulties. Relevant food hygiene authorities also ought to have been... More

The Sligachan hotel has been in business since 1930 and is a favourite for travellers and climbers. The all weather centre or Seamas' bar is a great place for a beer or some coffee. Also has entertainmnent at werekends. Recommended.

Stayed for just one night and have previously stayed in 2012 and 1987. The staff were friendly, the room comfortable, spacious and clean. The bar next door has a good atmosphere, food was good although didn't rate the local beer that highly. Breakfast was very good too. Only criticism is that it is a little expensive, but thoroughly recommended.

Stayed overnight and found the hotel staff to be very welcoming and indeed helpful when I needed information on a nearby mountain I intended to climb. The single room had a great view and was clean and well presented. The room was warm, which I really appreciated after my time on the ridge, where I ended up rather wet, Bar... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for the great review! It really gives the whole team a boost when we get positive comments from our guests. In my opinion, Skye is not the kind of place people should be coming to, in search of high-speed broadband. We are hoping to install satellite internet this winter as the cable speed we... More

My husband and I had been hiking on the Isle of Skye all day on a Sunday and were starved. We were unable to find any open restaurants on Sunday until we passed by this Bar next to the Sligachan Hotel. It was great. The atmosphere was definitely pub like, casual, with dark wood, a lit fireplace, and a well... More

We travel quite a bit and so often come across generic hotels that are functional but not welcoming - the Sligachan was a pleasant change. From arriving the staff were welcoming; the main rooms are warm and cosy with clean but dated bedrooms. Food was delicious and good value for the location. Despite the Seamus Bar being closed for the... More
