Couldn't miss experiencing the 3 chimneys whilst on Skye. What a shame.went for the tasting menu- Poncy food, but tasty. When asked for a local beer (2 breweries on Skye) fobbed off with some feeble excuse about difficulties sourcing from the brewery !!! Our venison was overcooked, mine was particularly chewy. Admittedly when cooking such a miserable sized portion of meat the window for medium is slight. Mentioned this quietly to waitress, just so chef was aware. No apology or any comment. When spending over £250 all in for two people, would expect better service. On the upside it was an experience, but way,way,way overpriced! 50% less and we'd be moving to 3-4 for the food experience. Shame on you 3Chims...!

Let me first say the food was top notch. Very creative, local ingredients and elegant presentations. The seven courses were wonderful; the wine pairings were just so-so but finished strong.

I give this place the benefit of the doubt for being in the middle of nowhere. A one lane road, elegant views of the loch and surrounded by sheep grazing. It's amazing what they're able to do given the locale. But they are riding their stellar reviews by the NY Times to the bank by drastically overpricing their limited rooms. But who can blame them? Capitalism right?

If you go here, do not stay at the "House over-by" as you will pay more than double what you will get in value. We entered a room listening to the floorboards of a fairly new construction house creak under us as we walked to our room. The room layout was elegant, the sheets maybe 150 thread count with limited bedding. The room layout was fine, but the furniture didn't impress and the bathroom was nice but basic. It was hot, with lots of bugs creeping in via the limited windows and no screens Although again, points given to the fact that they are in the middle of nowhere and thus on a septic system for sewer.

The point of this review is simple. The meal is marvelous, but we paid over $500 USD for a night (295 GBP) for a room that was the equivalent of a nice motel. You're better off staying nearby at one of the many nice B&B's because the value isn't there. The staff of the hotel was very unattentive and not interested in the extra attention you would expect. We probably said less than two minutes of acquaintances with them as they clearly weren't interested.

I sympathize with the owners, as it can't be easy to get good help in a place this remote. But then they should charge a fair value for the service they provide. After all, $500 USD gets you a room at a Ritz-Carlton in any major US city. You would expect a little more attention and care to detail from this small house in the Isle of Skye. That is why we may go back for a meal, but never to stay there.

We were on our Honeymoon and visiting Skye for the first time. Three Chimneys had been recommended and it certainly didn't disappoint! We stayed for two nights and ate in the restaurant both evenings. Firstly the room was luxuriously comfortable without being over the top, the french windows opened onto the side garden with beautiful views over Loch Dunvegan. The restaurant was expensive but worth every penny as the courses tantalized our taste buds. The service was impeccable and we would recommend this wonderful restaurant with rooms absolutely.

Do you ever travel and wish you could take the bed home? Amazingly comfortable. There is truly nothing to criticize about this lovely remote spot. The road in is lovely and meandering and is one lane wide. We booked well ahead of time and suggest this as it only has about six rooms. All have exterior opening doors and your room has fresh fruit and chocolates daily. There is no shortage of amenities and a warmed towel rack. The breakfast is superb. We slept in the first morning and thankfully they called our room at 9:30 to nudge us down the hallway so we did not miss our meal.

We stopped for a lunch in this popular restaurant. We both had soup as a starter and it was superb. Our main courses (fish and meat) looked promising but did not reach the same level. It was a little bit suprising to find such a fine dining restaurant on a remote location. Service was a bit stiff but very efficient and professional.
