“Fine B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

A lovely B&B with a great view and access not only to the center of town, (where we were entertained by a drum and bagpipe corps), but also to a great walking trail north of the house. The hosts were friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. Breakfast was great, and the whole place very neat and tidy. My wife and son and I enjoyed our visit, and will not hesitate to stay there again when we return to the beautiful Isle of Skye.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the bay.

My husband and I stayed at Dunborrodale Guest House for one night on our honeymoon. Robina (?) was lovely. We had a beautiful view from our room, and it's a short walk to the city center. Very clean. We had to leave early in the morning (before breakfast would be ready), but Robina insisted we come down for at least cereal and yogurt, etc.

After having visited a small hotel and a B&B that were slightly "tired", we were impressed by the spotless, immaculately maintained surroundings of Dunborrodale House. The hosts were friendly and helpful, breakfast was very good, and the lounge was large and comfortable with a lovely harbor view. The only things they could improve on: signage, making it easier to locate; and the bathroom was a bit compact. Otherwise, we enjoyed our two night stay here very much!

We had a very nice stay in this B&B. Dora was very hospitable. The room was nice and clean with a good view over Portree Bay. The shower and the sink were maybe a little bit small, but sufficient. The B&B is just a 5 minute walk from the city center and there is enough parking space on the terrain.
The guestlounge was very nice to read a book or to talk with other guests. The breakfast was very good. Breakfast was only from 8.00 till 8.30, but that was no problem for us.

Have just spend two nights at Dunborrodale and cannot recommend it highly enough. The landlady was extremely welcoming and keeps her guesthouse spotlessly clean. I think we had the best room in the house with amazing views over Portree bay. The location is perfect with a 5 to 10 minute walk into the centre of Portree. The breakfasts were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Skye is a stunningly beautiful place to visit and we were blessed with glorious weather and saw it at its very best (without midges!!!) I will certainly be a guest at Dunborrodale again in teh future

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at Dunborrodale Guest House very much. Robina was very kind, even though we didn't ring the doorbell before we walked in (oops!) The room, as well as the entire house is spotless. The location is great...just a short walk away from the city center. Robina offered us some information on a few places to go for dinner. Breakfast is from 8am - 8:30am, which may seem early to some, but fit our schedule perfectly. It was delicious. We hope to come back to Portree some day soon and would definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our hosts, Robina and Ewen MacDonald at Dunborrodale. Their home is well situated in Portree on the Isle of Skye, easy walking distance from restaurants and sites to visit in this great location. Our accommodations were spotless, very comfortable, and afforded a great view of the Sound of Raasay. Our hosts were friendly and happy to provide guidance tomake the most of our stay. A fine choice!
