“Believe the hype!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Not much I can add to what has already been said...apart from to back up all the good things that have been said and have no hesitation in recommending the White Heather and the warm greeting you will receive there to anyone considering it. Skye is a wonderfully scenic place to visit and the White Heather is an equally excellent base to explore it from. Bathroom was a wee bit 70's but to be honest it didn't matter a jot...everyone has their own taste and it couldn't be faulted for cleanliness.

Room Tip: We only tried the one room and it looked out over the harbour...good enough to take photos from says...

From the warm and friendly welcome at check-in on day one, we were confident that our 4 nights here would be a pleasant experience. Our expectations were exceeded. Our room was clean and comfortable. Although compact, our bathroom was clean and functional. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was generous, hearty and very well organised. The breakfast room was a delight with beautiful water views. Our host provided us with excellent guidance and local knowledge which made each day of our stay fulfilling and enjoyable. We had a delightful stay and can highly recommend The White Heather Hotel.

A lovely little place - ensuite, 2 lounges and a pretty dining room where an excellent breakfast was served.

Gillian is a charming and very helpful lady who booked a restaurant for us. There is an attention to detail such as a clock beside the bed, instructions on how to work the television. Breakfast tea does me but in the room you also had a choice of other exotic blends.

There were books and leaflets on everywhere to go on the island and adjacent mainland.

Kyleakin is a nice village and the harbour is picturesque.

We arrived at this nice little hotel late, after a 2 hr delay when the tour bus broke down, and the warm welcome we received could not have been more appreciated...Scottish hospitality at its finest! Our room (with bath) was very comfortable, meticulously clean, and breakfast was delicious and hearty. We left early the next day, but would like to return for a longer stay next time.

Delighted with our stay here. Excellent hostess and the lounge area was great to relax in. The kitchen was a bonus, able to chill our wine and drink it from the crystal glasses provided. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We had the family room for 3 adults which was quite spacious but no sea view. Room 1 looked nice for...

We took the bus to Kyleakin, so the White Heather was well located, just a short walk from the bus stop. There were two large sitting rooms, with loads of information about Kyleakin and Skye in general. Gillian is a wealth of information about the town, restaurants, activities, and transportation. Breakfast was delicious, and served in a large dining room overlooking the harbor and the castle ruins. Our room was large, spotlessly clean, and well- appointed. There was a kitchenettes just down the hall with a washer and a heated drying rack to dry some damp things. A pleasure all around.

Room Tip: We had the family room, facing away from the harbor (so no view) but the room was larger.

Bit disappointed in this location due to the small rooms - once you sat your two pieces of luggage down, there was no place else really to go but sit on the bed. There was a lounge available downstairs, but you really prefer your own place to relax (in your pj's) rather than a public lounge. Bathroom was okay and bed slept well - even for 6'4" husband, and the view from window and outside were fantastic! Hostess was very friendly and gave us excellent tourist information. Breakfast room was quite nice, and breakfast was typical Scottish version but well prepared. Location was very scenic for Isle of Skye, but would have preferred a bit larger space. Clean and priced appropriately.
