“Fine for the one night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

My friend and I stayed in twin room number 4 at the end of a three day road trip. It was fine for the one night however - in comparison with the other two b&bs we stayed at on Lewis & Harris, this b&b definitely lacks of that something special that would make it qualify as "lovely".

I have finally come to the realisation that Portree is maybe not the best town to stay in when on Skye. Everything was absolutely fine and the owners friendly enough, however, it lacked that little extra spark to make it special. Looks like the owners are looking to sell, so this may be reflected in the general feel...?

Warm welcome. Outstanding room beautiful decor. Bed very firm, perfect after a days driving especially if you have back problems.
Short walk to town and petrol a hundred yards away.
Breakfast excellent. Full Scottish breakfast available with lots of lovely fruit selection.
Would not hesitate to stay again.

We booked in here on sameday notice when the weather finished off out excursion to Uist. Great price, absolutely superb warm and cosy ensuite room. The guest lounge was spacious and cosy, breakfast was fantastic (the kippers were amazing and my girlfriend rated the poached eggs extremely highly) and the owners extremely helpful with great local knowledge

My girlfriend Sandra and I stayed with Donnie & Katie for 4 nights at Balloch. They were so friendly which made or stay so relaxed. The bedroom was immaculate as the rest of the house. Breakfast was first class every day. Location is fantastic, only 5 minute walk into the Capital of the island Portree. The B&B was full but we still managed to park the car within the grounds. Thank you Donnie & Katie for a lovely break.

Room Tip: For a great central location on Skye look no further but book early.

Beautifull place to stay which feels like a home rather then a hotel.
Very friendly staff and my daughter just loved the little dog Hamish
It is not too expensive and I can recommend thus B&B to evryone.
