I was worried about staying here because I had read some bad reviews. After staying there two nights, I leave with mixed feelings. The building is old, built in the 1500s. With the history of this place, and the structure it has such potential! There are many old buildings in Ireland and the UK that are now 4 or 5... More

We had a very nice experience at the lodge in May. The food was very nice, our room was clean and complete. The staff was nice and funny, we never had any problem when we stayed there. The place is old and smells like an old farm and firewood, I personally think it gives a pleasant atmosphere to the place.

Located in a remote part of northern Skye, this property is not as advertised. The inn keeper was inhospitable and nasty because we arrived later than she expected. The inn is in desperate need of repair with no electrical outlets in our room and the musty smell of mold pervading all. The reception we received was in sharp contrast to... More

skyelodge, Owner at The Lodge at Edinbane, responded to this review

The hotel is located just off the main road from Portree to Dunvegan. The building dates back to 1543 and is made of stone. Being such an old structure it is not made using all the techniques available today ergo some of the stone walls are three feet thick. There are electrical sockets in all the rooms which you found...

This extremely old house provides up-to-date facilities and beds. The net of corridors with dead-ends and surprising corners is lovingly decorated with collectibles and toys. Lovely for adults, but please don't put children under the pressure to behave themselves as expected here! Full Scottish breakfast, or any parts thereof, is freshy cooked, e.g. porridge from overnight soaked oats! The owners... More

This is a 500+ year old hunting lodge that now is a very comfortable B&B. If you are staying on the Isle of Skye this is the place to stay. The owners are very personable and add considerably to the charm of the place. There is a small pub in the building that locals frequent and it provides a chance... More

We travelled on a rainy day to the Isle of Skye and were very pleased at the warm reception at the Lodge. Hazel and Pete are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. Will definitely go back. Give Brodie a hug for us.

Before writing this review I read other reviews of this hotel and I don’t quite know how there is so much variation in people's stays at this hotel. Our experience here was short and definitely not sweet. We spontaneously booked an hour before arriving as a safe haven from the midges we had been camping with all week. Unfortunately when... More

My partner and I stayed here in 2013. We were delighted with the place. Sprung for the 4 poster bedroom and wasn't disappointed. Great nights sleep after spending the evening at the bar chatting to the owners who had good chat. Dogs were lovely too. In the morning, we had the Stornoway black pudding which was to die for.

"Car park" is horrendous with lots of pot holes and badly needs repairing. There is a musty smell throughout this lodge. The wallpaper in our bedroom certainly was not put on by a professional, or even someone who had a slight idea how to wallpaper...it was shocking. Towels left on the bed were threadbare and looked as if bleach had... More

Our 2nd visit to the Lodge, so knew our way around. We ate there both evenings that we stayed, & also had breakfast. Every meal was excellent. The bar area doesn't get a lot of customers, but moving between the Lodge & the Inn down the road, we had a great couple of evenings. It's a very informal establishment, Hazel... More
