After reading some of the reviews for this B & B, I was a bit worried that I had booked a room here. It turned out to be a very nice Bed & Breakfast. It was clean with spacious rooms. The breakfast was delicious. I would have given it 5 stars, but there is no wifi in the room, even... More

We were 3 "mature" sisters traveling together who stayed in the family room in the small building behind the main house. The beds were quite comfortable and there was plenty of room. We enjoyed the leisure Scottish breakfasts and the friendly staff. The village of Kyleakin is just a short walk down the hill, with a nice walk along the... More

This was halfway through a biking tour of Scotland, we had decided to stay on Skye for a couple of nights and found this via booking.com, the price was reasonable and the previous reviews were good so we booked. Upon arrival we were greeted by a Spanish/Portuguese bloke whose grasp on the English language was a bit tenuous to say... More

We were assigned to this establishment while on tour with Highland Experience. The manager of the property seems to have a personality disorder. When we arrived it seemed that they were short a room. One of the workers there told us that they did have a room, but when "she" came, she denied having a room and began to insult... More

We stayed at MacKinnon's Guest House as part of a packaged tour, it's more of a B&B, but in areas this remote, this would fit the 'hotel' option we selected with the tour company. Truth be told, it could use with some improving. Old & worn I expect, but better maintenance is required. We spent 2 nights there in 2... More

We are a Scottish couple who stayed for 2 nights in July. We were initially apprehensive after reading some reviews of the hotel. In fairness the hotel is very tired and dated but is clean and we found all the staff pleasant. The breakfast was ok but would have expected local produce to show off a Scottish breakfast to its...

I stayed at the Mackinnon Hotel, Skye in late June 2016. The reservation was made online several months earlier. To check the booking was still all in order I tried to call the hotel in early June. I called a dozen times. each time the call went to answer phone. I failed to reach them. I contacted my booking agent,... More

My wife and I have been traveling in Europe for over 35 years. The MacKinnon Country House rates among the worst that we have ever seen. The facilities are dated and dirty. We stayed in the "Lodge" in room 17 because of the king bed. It was indeed a king bed but there the happiness ends. The curtains in the... More

A nice place to stay and a comfortable room although a little faded in some public areas We thought a tad expensive. Breakfast ok There seems to be a WWII theme which was a little weird in terms of the ambience

We arrived 30 minutes earlier than expected and were told we would have to come back at 4.00 pm. We had booked months before in Australia and initially thought the hotel looked pleasant with beautiful grounds. However our room was musty and not in the main building and the hotel appeared to be run by one young man on his... More
