“Okay, but Not worth the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2005

We stayed for one night in July - the hotel was reasonably well located but first problem was parking. Only a few spaces outside and no dedicated car park. The room itself was fine, but very small. Would expect this in a city centre but not out of town, especially since our room was in an extension, ie. not part of the original building where you might expect the rooms to be small. Our room did not have any view facing onto a path at the rear - again, okay in a city centre, but not what you might expect in Skye. The room was modern and clean. Staff were mainly foreign and whilst efficient, were not overly friendly. We are from Scotland so this was okay, but oversees visitors might expect a more local welcome. Would probably not stay here again unless the rate was discounted.

The Bosville was absolutely excellent to us while we stayed with them. Exceedingly friendly staff, and good food. My wife was quite ill at the time, and they made extra certain that we were well cared for.

Highly recommended.

I was so surprised to find a bad review for the Bosville. We arrived on a cold windy day and were given a really warm welcome, a magnificent refurbished room (with harbour view). Seafood was outstanding and even though the restaurant was very busy staff were very impressive in service. Beautiful new bar and great malt selection and knowledge from barmen. (Super Irish coffee's, guys!!) A great break and will certainly be back. Well done!

Very poor accomodation - the rooms are small and cramped and the en-suite facilities leave a lot to be desired. The breakfast was also poor. I asked for 2 soft yolked poached eggs and got something more akin to hard boiled. It was obvious the chef didn't have much pride in their work. Made a hasty exit in the morning.
