Very pretty setting, large comfortable rooms with I have to say THE most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, it was even better then the beds I’ve had at Claridges and the Lanesborough.

Unfortunately while the bathroom was large, it was a little tired and a separate walk-in shower would have been preferable however the toiletries and warm fluffy towels and robes are lovely.

The most negative and most unfortunate comment must be that a bowl of muesli and a couple of apples do NOT constitute a early breakfast. Surely an 8am departure on a Saturday morning cannot be described as excessively early? What happens if guests want a hearty breakfast before a days walk or fishing on the loch? Especially at 300 quid a night!

Pre-dinner drinks are served in the breakfast room, while it has stunning views out over the loch, it really does feel like you are sitting in an old peoples home, sea green walls, pvc windows and nasty furniture don’t live up to the clear aspirations of the owner.

I’ve written a separate review of the restaurant and like that, I just find myself unable to recommend.

Such a pity.

This was our second time at Three Chimneys for an evening meal (4 yrs between visits) and I can safely say it has not deteriorated in any way. Indeed, I prefer that it was slightly less stuffy and pretentious this tie round - the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, something a kin to the service you might find at the Kitchin in Edinburgh.

The setting speaks for itself and the food was just wonderful - amazing monkfish, succulent goat and delicious almond and blackcurrant tart.

Well done to all involved and keep up the good work! Not sure what the snobbish bad reviews are on about - this is Scotland not Manhattan - chill out people and you might enjoy life more! Oh, and if visiting, why not try and be on time....

Such a shame to see some bad reviews recently. Don't let them put you off! We had a truly wonderful meal here in July. Yes it is absolutely in the middle of nowhere, but anyone who checks a map can see this. We stayed in a super hotel about 10miles away and took a taxi there and back- worth the bit extra so we could have a drink in the lovely conservatory before and afterwards. The wine flight also seemed very good value if you are doing the tasting menu, although we didn't have it on this occasion. Now the food... Amazing! We had a tasting menu which was worth every penny (not cheap but less than a number of other Michelin starred restaurants we have eaten at). Wonderful seafood as you would expect and every dish beautifully presented. The food wasn't experimental or particularly innovative for a restaurant of this caliber, but it scored full marks on taste which is the most important. We found the staff very friendly and the service attentive, both in the restaurant and the bar area. Overall this was definitely the highlight of our trip to the West Coast.

We travelled to Scotland for vacation last week and after reading a review in a US travel magazine decided to make a reservation at The Three Chimneys on the Isle of Skye. We drove for 5 hours to get there, unfortunately there is nothing on their web site that tells you how many miles away it is once you arrive on the Isle of Skye. It's in the middle of nowhere down one lane roads and herds of sheep that may block the road at times. We phoned when we realized we were going to be late due to the distance and travel conditions and whomever we spoke to told us in a cold manner to do the best we could to get there. We had a 1:30 reservations and arrived at around 2:15 only to be told by a snobby employee in a stuffy bow tie, that they stop serving lunch at 1:45. This restaurant isn’t in the hospitality business...it's in the ATTITUDE business!! Although we were turned away, we travelled all over Scotland for the next 11 days and made sure everyone we met and spoke to will know never to dine at The Three Chimneys. Take your pounds elsewhere...There is no way the food is good enough to have to go through the hassle of eating there.

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...!
