We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Rabbies tour. It's an easy 10-15 minute walk into the centre of Portree. Our room was fantastic - light, airy, gorgeous, huge bathroom with both bath and shower, very quiet. Breakfast was great and very tasty, served in their conservatory. There is also a guest lounge. No complaints and can...

Myself and husband had a great 3 night stay at Fiona and Robbie's B&B. They made us feel very welcome, along with Fiona's Mum and Emma, we felt right at home. Our room was clean, warm and the bed was very comfortable. We had a lovely view looking onto the harbour. There were a great selection of breakfast options, which...

Fiona was absolutely lovely! The room and bathroom were both clean and tidy, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Great breakfast. Quick walk to the shops/restaurants in Portree at night. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends!

We booked quite last minute and were accommodated. The breakfasts were full Scottish and delicious and filling. One of my haddock breakfasts were served by the man that caught the fish the day before....that is more charming to a landlubber than any seacoast-liver will ever know! The tariff was great considering the privacy and breakfast and quiet interaction. The accommodations...

We were a little farther out of town than we thought, but the walk was really fine, We had a light that wouldn't work, and called the number and got a recording. Even though we did not leave a message, we got a knock on the door and an eager inquiry as to what we had needed. We told them,...

We stayed in this comfy B and B / Guest house owned by Robbie and Fiona, who also own the Pink Guest House in Portree. Recently renovated with new beds etc. Quiet convenient location with its own (limited) parking. Pleasant shared living rooms with TV etc. Breakfast served in the conservatory. Some scope for improvements. Rather basic breakfast, e.g. no...

We had not booked the B&B directly but the same was done through our tour operator Rabbie's. The place was a nice luxury cottage with big rooms, big bathroom with all modern amenities. The host was also very good and there were numerous English Breakfast options. We being Vegetarians also found one option to our liking so breakfast was not...

Really liked our room and the fact the kids were in a separate room. We had a great view of the harbor. It was nice they provided a menu do we didn't waste food on the full English we have had at most places in UK. Nice sitting room to relax in. The entire house is very clean. Great stay.

Such a beautiful place to stay in Portree. Warm and cosy but most importantly the hosts were very welcoming and kind. Breakfast was good and so were the soft beds. Only downside was that the hot water supply in the bathroom was a wee bit intermittent.
