This little guest house is located up the hill with beautiful views of the water and mountains. It is walking distance to various restaurants and supermarket. The only downside is the Wi-Fi. Very spotty, not functioning at times. Rooms clean, comfortable and as described.

The staff was really helpful and super kind. We got a lot of great tips and the host sat down with us to help plan our trip. Probably the best service I've ever gotten in my life. The rooms where of good standard. Incredible view from the room and a nice breakfast. The restaurant next door served proper food and... More

We stayed two nights at the Coolin View last week with family who had travelled up from South Wales. The hospitality from Eddie the owner and his colleague and brother Jim was absolutely superb. The bedrooms have benefitted from some excellent refurbishment since our last visit. The comfort and quality of the mattresses, pillows, bed linen and generous bath sheets... More

Nice rooms. Beautiful views, great hosts. Yummy breakfast and excellent dinner right next door. Host helped us map our route of the island and knew all the good places to stop. We had wonderful time. Walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. Did I say beautiful view? Lovely place to rest.

Well, it's not hard, it's overlooking the harbour and distant hills. Walking distance to everything The room was fine, we opted for a smaller one due to our budget, but it was comfortable The bathroom was great, good shower pressure, and very clean Highly recommended, forget the rest, head straight here

We have stayed here for two days. I feel it is not worth the price we paid (+/- 125 euro per night). Probably since there is a shortage of rooms on Skye this price can be asked and will be paid. The view was very nice and it is very close to the center of the village. Also we could... More

The b & b is clean and comfortable. We stayed in a top floor room which was a bit cramped. However, the view was spectacular over the harbour and onto the mountains beyond. The guy who welcomed was very friendly and helpful. A bit on the expensive side for the standard.
