“A Recommended Stay”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Request your bay view room here. Really excellent. Our food was very good in contrast to some of the other reviews. Effie is one of the most pleasant hostesses. Friendly and helpful you couldn't ask for better. A clean and very nice place. Would love to return again. If you walk to town it is about 15 minutes but pleasant. Not far from a convenience store.

OK, the one negative: the room decor is a little dated. But so what? With such a great view out over the bay, who is looking in the room? Plus, it has everything you need: plenty of room, good storage, lots of plugs, chair and desk, hot shower that works and clean bathroom. The breakfast was good and I appreciate Effie let me try porridge and kippers on top of the regular breakfast. She is a charming, helpful lady, and we enjoyed her comfortable lounge. Two nights, £80 per night.

When we got there, I was expecting a lot more from a 4 star b&b after all the places we did.
The room was clean, no problem there.
The view was amazing with a window that makes the whole wall. (almost)
The bathroom, well, see the picture.
Dining room was great, still a nice view.
The one thing that really made us decide to leave the same morning was the food.
I had decided to take a little portion of kipper to try it out with a full scottish breakfast, but
when I received my plate, the food was watery. Everything was mixing together and with the salty taste of the kipper, it made it uneatable.
Maybe it was just one of these mornings since everyone else had a good breakfast on the reviews.

Had very nice stay in Almondbank. Room is great. Rabbies, a tour company, often have their guides stay there. That says for this place is well received among regular visitors. Only thing is if you are not driving, expect 15mins walk to the town for food.

This B&B is about a mile outside of the Portree town centre and is in a quiet location by the sea. Some rooms, plus the common area, have a lovely view of the bay and the distant mountains. Mrs. Nichols keeps the rooms clean and comfortable and serves a nice breakfast. I would highly recommend this place to my friends.

I stayed her for 1 night while in Portree for work. Everything was absolutely spotless & I had the most beautiful view form my room. Bed was comfy and I slept really well. Breakfast was lovely as was the host Effie, so friendly and made me feel right at home. I would definitely recommend Almondbank B&B to others!

The room is very comfortable, with very clean bathroom and a nice bed.
Effie is very friendly. She drove us to the restaurant after she realized that we were not having dinner yet and outside was raining heavily. She will recommend a few restaurants as she knew we were just arrived this lovely place.
The breakfast is great. Effie cares every of her customer.
We came back late and left early. However, you can have the whole view of the lake without blocking on your bed!
