We spent two nights in the Skeabost Hotel as part of our Skye adventure. The hotel is conveniently located a few miles north of Portree, close to the Trotternish Peninsula scenic drive, and not far from Dunvegan Castle. Skeabost is a converted hunting lodge on beautiful property. The new owners have created an inviting atmosphere treating the visitors and staff... More

Its just a short drive from Portree heading towards Skeabost. Located in a quiet area. Family run, well kept and very friendly staff. Stayed 3 nights and made it our base to explore Isle of Skye. Our room was in the new wing. It was cosy and comfortable. Breakfast in the hotel was good (The full Scottish). Dinner in the... More

We spent 3 nights at the Skeabost hotel and loved our stay. You can tell the hotel is family run, staff go the extra mile. Room was good with nice views across the lawn and the edge of the lodge. Breakfast is superb, I loved the bowls of yoghurt and fresh fruit, there was a selection of cheese, meat, croissants,... More

Loved the accommodation, service and food at this upscale country hotel. Comfortable and cozy public rooms, excellent service and the best dinner we had in Scotland. Would return. Our room, 5, had a huge bathroom. Staff offered continually to get us drinks or asist in some way. We felt well looked after.

Located 6mi from Portree, this gorgeous property was my favorite of our 2 weeks in Ireland and Scotland. The grounds are spectacular, service is excellent and the rooms are very modern and well equipped...including wash cloths! Comfy beds and great breakfast as well.

An easy seven mile drive to and from Portree, which provided a welcome break from that pretty but quite touristy town. A good-sized room with a patio overlooking the water (and the mud when the dramatic tide moved out). Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff, ready to help with information on what to see on Skye, how to get there,... More

Room was very nice. Could see that the decor was recently updated. Did think our 4 poster bed might've needed a new mattress, but we still really enjoyed our stay here. Wifi was a little spotty, but we weren't there for the internet lol. Dinner at the hotel was superb. We had to try the traditional Cullen Skink...it was delicious... More

We drove up in a driving rainstorm and at first I was afraid we were in the Shining. Once inside we found this an extremely well done older hotel. (I understand the new owners have really poured money into the property.) You won't see finish work and craftsmanship like this much anymore, much less stay in it. Our room was... More

Lovely location, lovely building. Have to say the food was excellent. Staff were just lovely. However, while we had a great bathroom, the room itself was quite poky, lacking in areas to store things. Once we had discarded the numerous cushions from the bed, even floor space was limited. My main beef was that we had paid £250+ a night... More
