Have had many visits to this lovely hotel, almost all out of season. This is a family owned and individually run establishment which also doubles as the heart and soul of the community. The first time we came here, more than 10 years ago, we loved the style and it is just as good today. The old building was brought up to date and remains very good with everything working well. The bathrooms, the TVs and the Wifi are all excellent.
The food has had some changes over the last year and remains fresh, original and with good portion sizes. Great fish and seafood, especially the locally caught langoustines and great locally sourced meat. The breakfasts are really good with imaginative fresh fruit salads as well as traditional eggs and bacon. The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs is an example to other establishments how to do it.
All of the above would be nothing if the staff did not provide a welcome and this is the real strength of this place. As on all previous visits we were made to feel welcome and greeted as if we lived next door. Even very good and expensive chain hotels can never enter the league that this hotel plays in.
The hotel is situated in a beautiful village, right on the waterfront. The views are spectacular, even in the famed west coast bad weather. This is a great center for touring the West coast and Skye.
