“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

These are the only words for this B&B. You just couldn't wish for more. Everything perfect. The rooms are really homely, comfortable beds and modern bathroom. The gardens are stunning and the views of the bay from the conservatory are spectacular. Marie and Ewen make you very welcome, give you tips on what to do in Portree and will even make reservations in the restaurants down at the harbour. The breakfasts are huge, my husband's eyes nearly popped out of his head when he was served with the double of everything. He managed it as it was delicious but the following morning requested only a lady's portion. This is the place to stay on the Isle of Skye.

Recently had two nights here. Immaculately kept inside And the gardens beautifully kept loved the topiary. HAd stunning view looking out over the bay. All the facilities provided for the guests are first rate. A.wonderful place to stay on Skye. My BIG highlight was to be given a ride on Ewan's trike, many thanks.

My daughter and I recently had 3 nights at Greenacres. Our hosts and staff were so friendly and helpful, the location on a point overlooking the bay and Portree was stunning and the large terrace was a great place to end the day. While the decor was not my personal taste, everything was very clean and comfortable and we would highly recommend this as a base to explore beautiful Skye. Thanks Ewan for showing us your trike! Great fun!

Room Tip: We had a quiet ground floor twin room, good sized en suite, even a tiny cooling fridge for drinks et...

We spent two nights here while visiting Skye. The location is about a 15 walk from the center of Portree. The ladies running it (there is a husband somewhere but we did not see him) couldn't have been more gracious, friendly and helpful. And professional. Our room was not big, but big enough and comfortable, clean. The sitting room was comfy. Breakfast was complete and delicious. A good place to stay.

We couldn't believe how lovely this place is. Stunning gardens surrounding the house, breathtaking views, and a lovely welcome from owner Mhairi. Spotlessly clean rooms, great breakfasts with everything from full Scottish to continental all served on "Old Country Roses" fine china ( a lovely touch ). Access to fabulous guest lounge and conservatory. Nothing to fault. Mhairi is a lovely friendly lady who does her utmost to make guests feel welcome. Look forward to returning.

Greenacres has a fabulous site, beautiful gardens and a great lounge to enjoy it all from. The rooms are not massive but are very well appointed and clean and high quality. Being a cyclist showers are important and there are, in my opinion, 3 aspects to a good shower; pressure, temperature and space. Our showers scored well on the first two and moderately so on the third. Breakfast was excellent, everybody was friendly and efficient and they let us park our bikes safely round the back in the carport. It is slightly more expensive than some others but you certainly get what you pay for. Definitely recommended

We have stayed at hundreds of B&Bs around the world and Greenacres was among the most comfortable and welcoming. The house is charming, the grounds delightful (perhaps a little too cutesy with all of the garden gnomes -- but they work), and the views to die for. The common areas are exceptionally comfortable and spacious. They have added on a solarium that is airy and takes full advantage of the spectacular view of the bay and surrounding hills. The rooms are relatively spacious, comfortable, clean and well-appointed. What makes it really special is that the innkeepers go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We stayed three days and were in no hurry to leave.
