The best parts of this hotel were 1) the bathroom - big and good lighting, and 2) the breakfasts (served buffet style). My single room was a bit small with a single bed pushed up against the wall so every time I turned over I hit the wall.

We loved the room and the windows that opened up directly to let the night breeze come in over the loch. Food was just so-so compared to the excellent fare we had elsewhere, and the shower was probably the worst shower either of us experienced in Scotland. Why is it that a country with so much water can't get the... More

As in Skye was almost everything full, this hotel which is just in front of the island was also too expensive for what it is. The room was big and with nice views but a bit worn out, it needs a bit of renovation or cheaper prices.

Very hospitable friendly staff, clean well appointed rooms. Lovely view towards the water. Great value nice breakfast only complaint a young waitress had very noisy shoes spoils the tranquility. This Hotel is on the main road leading up to the bridge of the Isle if Skye about 10 minutes before.

Good solid old fashion hotel. We did not get much of a view. Too bad because the suroundings are breathtaking. The hotel stadf was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and ok size. Rooms are a bit worn down. Other than that it was good. Price was ok, breakfast was great.

My wife loved this hotel and thought it was charming and quaint. I had a somewhat more challenging time with the amenities. The wifi did not work in our room, so I had to go to the lobby to get connected. The internet speed was very slow, but perhaps that's what one gets in the Scottish highlands. The shower set... More

Not impressed with this hotel. The location is perfect but the accommodation was absolutely awful. The room was little more than a box room with a single bed pushed against the wall. Their was no bedside cabinet because the bed was level with the door and there was no chair in the room because there was no space for one.... More
