Overall we had a great experience at this B&B. The room itself was lovely with some absolutely first class views. The room was clean, warm and homely with local information provided. The owner was polite but happy to leave us to ourselves which we appreciated. The bathroom was nice and even equipped with under floor heating which was a bit...

Thank you very much for taking time to write your review. We are very fortunate to have 'picture postcard' views from the sea view bedrooms. Regarding the pillows there are spare pillows in the cupboards of the rooms (apologies the person showing you to the room should have pointed that out to you) Hopefully you will manage to visit the...

We stayed in the family room for 2 nights last September. Room was on the smaller side but neat and spotless. The views - fantastic! Especially for the price for a family of 4 I think this was a great deal . Breakfast was in the adjoining restaurant, once again with great views! Breakfast itself was moderate but quite filling...

Thank you for taking time to write your review. I will pass on your comments to the housekeeping staff and the breakfast staff. We now have larger family rooms which sleep 4 therefore it wont be as neat as the family room which slept 3. Hopefully we will see you and your family at some point in the future.

My girlfriend and I arrived at Coolin View after a long day of travelling through Scotland to reach the Isle of Skye. The parking was a little difficult but other than that, first impressions seemed lovely. We were checked in by a polite young member of staff and shown to our room. We began to unpack and had an afternoon...

Hi Emily O. We do not discriminate against same sex couples. (it is illegal to do so in Scotland) Your review is totally unfair and biased. Perhaps next time you should tell the truth when writing a review.

We stayed for a few days in March 2016 and absolutely adored this place. Our top floor room had beautiful views overlooking the bay in Portree. The staff were very friendly - we arrived quite late at night and they had been coming up from their outing in town every few minutes waiting for us and were happy to show...

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.

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.
