“Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Tom and Mary could not have made us feel more welcome on our recent trip to Skye. Nothing was too much hassle from looking up bus times for us to offering us a lift to the ferry terminal with luggage! Rooms were clean and very comfortable, bathrooms were very big with powerful showers. It felt like home from home as we were free to come and go as we pleased. Having stayed in a number of bnbs this week; Sonas was definitely the best. Breakfast was delicious with choices from smoked salmon to haggis! Definitely worthy a visit if staying in Ardvasar.

Traditional B&B in Scotland was based on sharing your home & facilities with paying guests. While we have moved on and guests have their own bathrooms and part of the house that 'home from home' feeling is still all important. I'm very pleased that you felt welcome & so comfortable. Mary

This is an excellent b&b on the Isle of Skye.
The doubleroom was a bit small but large enough and had a spacious bathroom.
We had waffles for breakfast and they were gorgeous!
We had a superb advice for dinner.

Not a very good welcome when we arrived ,as Tom meet us but had to look after grandchild number 14 ,whilst Mary was out,Tom said this is your room ,which is very small and there is no other area to sit inside .Then he said I,am off to my shed and left us .Friday is the day they look after the grandchildren . The kitchen looked untidy from the hall and one of the twinn beds may a childs but was a very small size, Breakfast was not too great either .So not a good start to our visit to the Isle of Skye.

Hated this B& B.

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your night with us. It upsets me that you did not mention at the time any of the things that you now flag up as problems. Thank you for mentioning our grandchildren they are quite wonderful, sadly only a couple of them live in Skye . I hope the rest of your holiday was more to your taste and that you took my advice and mentioned your wife's special dietary needs in advance. Mary

I travel a lot but nobody can beat their breakfast! For me it was fresh home made waffers with fresh cream and berries, real tea (not teabags!) with real lemon!
My room was nice and clean (there is no TV, but I don't need it), location is very convinient. I'll be back!

Mary & Tom Hyslop offer two modern and very comfortable en suite rooms along with a fantastic continental breakfast. Convenient to the ferry terminal, this offers an excellent first or last B&B when exploring the Sleat Peninsula in Southern Skye.
