“Lovely friendly B&B”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stayed two nights in Kiltaraglen; room really comfortable and tastefully decorated, breakfast great. About ten minutes easy walk from centre of Portree. What made the stay was the wonderful friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts; genuinely concerned to help you make the most of your time in Skye. Would definitely book again.

My sister and I had a fantastic three-night stay here, with the most wonderful hosts. The house is cosy and inviting, the beds and room extremely comfortable, and a fantastic breakfast is served in the morning. Our hosts Pam and Kevin couldn't have been nicer and were extremely helpful with hikes nearby and tips on restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back the next time on Skye!

It's been almost 1.5 years since we were at Kiltaraglen for 4 days during our honeymoon in September 2011. We still remember this wonderful place and its unique surroundings.
It's a romantic hideway with the most friendly hosts one can wish for. We had a double room with shower, comfortable, cosy and clean. The breakfast/living room is also very nice and the breakfast was fantastic, loved the fresh fruit and the black pudding as well!
Colum and Rachel were also very helpful providing information about the isle. There were maps and books about hiking which also gave us some inspiration on our stay. Sanja and Ben

We are so pleased that you had such a wonderful time and we really do hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you back to Kiltaraglen.

I stayed here as a B&B guest during a very wet and wintery November week.
Accommodation - My room was perfect. Super comfortable bed, nice tasteful furnishings and an ample supply of tea, coffee, hot choc (and sometimes delicious home made biccies). In my limited experience it's unusual to not have a TV in the bedroom. This turned out to be a real treat as it meant there was no TV noise upstairs. The house also boasts a fantastic spacious lounge with an enormous TV and, a real treat during my stay, a fabulous log burning stove. I was really spoiled for comfort.
Food - There was an excellent range of cereals and juices etc available, before tucking into an outstanding cooked breakfast. In addition, special treats were on offer such as spiced plums and other fruits. In all honesty I have a rampant appetite but after my breakfast I spent the day exploring Skye and didn't eat again until evening.
Hosts - My hosts are the perfect B&B providers. Attentive, pleasant, friendly, courteous, professional and never intrusive. When you're told to make yourself at home, it's genuine.
Location - The house is a 10 minute walk from Portree centre and excellent located for exploring any part of the island by car. The surroundings are beautiful and very peaceful.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: I had the double with shower. Lovely!

Thanks so much for the great comments.

I'm glad that the log fire helped to make up for the 'Autumnal' weather you experienced and we are glad that you would visit us again. I enjoy providing a selection of breakfast goodies and was pleased to hear that you got through the day on our breakfast!

It's a real pleasure to hear that we are stepping up to the mark for our guests!

Accommodations were a bit tight, and the bathroom in our unit really needed some updating. Lack of a mirror proximate to the sink made shaving difficult. Also a gap behind the sink swallowed my toothbrush, and when I went "hunting" for it I found numerous other items which had been dropped at one time or another! We must have had one of the smaller rooms, as ours doesn't correlate with other reviews on this site. It could be because we were only staying one night that we got a smaller room versus others. It's a nice property, and maybe one of the better in the area, but not a 4-5 star review compared to others we've stayed in on our Scotland tour.

Thanks for your review, it helps us keep tabs on what folk want when staying with us.

Sorry you found the mirror to the side of the wash basin inconvenient, we agree with you that the bathroom is ready for updating.

As this part of the house is over 200 years old, we are stuck with the low ceiling height and very restricted in what we can do, but we are pleased that you found the room clean and we were 'nice place, nice folk'.

As we only have three bed and breakfast rooms, we do try hard to make our guests comfortable though as it is also our family home, we don't profess to be anything but a small and welcoming B & B with Self Catering accommodation.

Thanks for taking the time to give your honest impressions for our other guests.

Best regards Pam, Kevin, Calum and Rachel.

We stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The welcome we received was second to none - thank you so much for meeting us off the bus and arranging the champagne and chocs. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts excellent.
