Witchwood House
Ranked #10 of 11 Kyleakin B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We were received very friendly. We had room 2, the room was very clean. Well as the bathroom. The B and B is located in the small town. Breakfast is served in the pub next to the house. The walls are very thin. The room has a small double bed. The room is the smallest that I have ever seen. It is not possible that two people able to move in the room.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome by the lady who booked us in nor could have been more helpful. The room was perfectly clean and the bed was as comfy as any we have ever slept in. The hospitality tray was well stocked with tea, coffee, drinking chocolate and a good supply of biscuits. We ate dinner in their restaurant where we found plenty of choice on the menu. The food itself was very good. Breakfast more than lived up to our expectations. As good as we have had in any other. Special mention must be given to the two young lady's who served us with our dinner and breakfast both of whom could not have done more for us. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. They are the kind of people who just make you smile. All in all we have no hesitation in giving Glenarroch B&B the highest recommendation.

We were there last week and yes its not enspiringwhen you first drive up what with the houses windows needing a wee clean and the wheelie bins sittingat the front... but thats not where you stay .. its up the stairs a seperate part of the house that you enter via a side door and the place is spottless... ok you have to nip to the wee shop to get your keys....hardly a rout march..the room was not massive but it was big enough for our needs clean and somewhere to put our clothes and a comfy bed to sleep .. the wee welcome tray was jam packed with coffee (Nescafe) tea and hot chocolate (Cadbury's) it is a B&B so we did get our breakfast tokens no bother and yes you went into the bar for you breakfast but no it did not stink of stale anything .. and no there was no jostling either ..our sausages 2 off were not (pretty minging) and our two rashers of bacon were not salty.. We did not have a evening meal but wish did when we saw what came out of the kitchen .... the previous review said it was expensive, small, uncomfortable, poor service, over-priced and poor breakfast, the worst B&B I have stayed in..... but we can honestly say that is the very opposiet of what we experianced.... noticed the review was posted last year and maybe they have up't their standards but when we go back to Skye we would happily go back to the Glenarroch ...

£55 for one person for a night makes this the most expensive B&B/Guest House I have ever stayed in. The room was also the smallest I have ever stayed in. The room was in the attic, so the roof sloped over around half of the room, including over the toilet meaning that I could not stand and use the toilet comfortably. The stairs are narrow, making moving luggage upstairs awkward.
Booking in is at the shop on the other side of the pub. When booking in, I was asked if I wanted a cooked breakfast and was informed that a “full Scottish breakfast” would be £7 on top of the £55 for the room. When I queried this, the shop assistant checked and it turned out breakfast was included. Breakfast was to be served in the public bar. As it happened that night, I was in the public bar and saw the signs informing customers that tokens had to be presented for breakfast. Not having a token I went back to the shop, was told that I didn't need a token then was given one anyway. Just as well because next morning the breakfast assistant was not serving people who didn't have tokens. Breakfast not included/included, tokens not needed/needed – this is either staggeringly disorganised or less than totally honest.
As mentioned above, the breakfast is served in the public bar, which is probably delightful for people who like their breakfast accompanied by the smell of stale beer. I don't and it wasn't. The buffet breakfast was laid out on a couple of tables with a number of people jostling to get access to the limited range of options (3 cereals, budget fruit juices out of the carton, cheap tea bags, coffee. yoghurt.). The “full Scottish breakfast” selection was sausage, bacon, egg (fried, poached, scrambled), mushrooms, beans, tea, and toast – sounds ok until it arrived. When it arrived, there was one (pretty minging) sausage, two rashers of salty (so probably cheap) bacon, a fried egg and half a tomato (I didn't ask for mushrooms or beans). I asked the breakfast assistant if that was a £7 breakfast. He said he'd get the toast and walked away. Toast arrived about 10 minutes later.
There used to be a traditional Scottish pastime called fleecing the tourists – I thought it had died out but it seems ton be alive and well in some parts. I'd advise giving this one a miss, and if you are unfortunate enough to land there, skip the breakfast and head to Harry's Cafe by the harbour for a decent breakfast.
In summary, expensive, small, uncomfortable, poor service, over-priced and poor breakfast, the worst B&B I have stayed in in Scotland. Avoid if possible.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else. If you want breakfast, make sure you get a token Pay cash, get a receipt
