This was the worst hotel we stayed in so far on our trip through Scotland. Actually it would be a fine house - but it's completely run down (trash in front of the entrance, sofa in an awful condition ...). The overall decoration theme is "war and its heros" - which is Ok - but camouflage nets hanging from the... More

Website photos are deceptive. Grounds unkept and building is tired. Welcome from proprietrix - what welcome? No manners. Food ok. Nothing special. Glenn Miller plays endlessly in dining room. Camouflage netting adorns the ceiling!!Faded WW2 newspapers around the walls - ugh! Japanese family placed beside cutting of Hiroshima bomb!? Staff (other than owner) friendly and helpful. Convenient location. Dog-friendly. Wouldn't... More

When we arrived we found the host/owner to be abrasive. The bedding is in desperate need of updating - we literally slept on the wood slates of the box spring. The serving staff for breakfast were two lovely ladies but the owner was not the least bit friendly.

We stayed in the Macmillan room with a four poster bed and a jacuzzi bath. Nice and clean. Honesty bar downstairs. Two lounges. Superb breakfast and dinner. Not far to walk in to Kyleleakin. Where we went last night to King Hakkon bar to listen to a band after our meal. Tonight was windy and rainy so walked 400 yards... More

There was a mix up with the booking as the hotel had us down for a family room rather than a double, we arrived late at night and just missed the restaurant by a couple of minutes, but after a little bit of chatting to the chap on reception he squared us away with a nice meal from the leftovers...

The room was clean and worked well for our party of four. Nothing flash, but as described. Well located on the tip of the Isle of Skye and a short (30min) drive to the beautiful Fairy Pools. Loved the Honesty Bar by the lobby - a rare sight these days.

Upon entering the room it looked a little dirty as did the bathroom but I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. I wish I hadn't. As I closed the curtains the windowsill was crawling in flies/midges as was every single wall in the room and the ceiling. I tired my best to put it out my mind... More

Worst hotel I've ever stayed in over 50 years of world travel. Moldy disgusting filthy room. Toilet would not flush; shower would not work.Bed springs jumping through the sheets. Wifi down permanently. Restaurant was good, but not worth the torture of the room. Recommendation: Pass, Pass, Pass.

I have some concerns about this hotel after reading comments of other visitors. Hoever, my experience was not bad at all. I stayed there for a couple nights with my family in four poster bedroom. It was quite decent.

My family stayed here for one night. The people running the place were pleasant but seemed inexperienced with customer service. The woman who was most likely the manager or owner was very rude and not friendly. There was not enough hot water for all of the guests in the morning and we were given the "it's an old house" line.... More
