“Probably the best hotel in Scotland”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

When we arrived we found we had been given a room upgrade "because we are quiet". And it got better from there

The room was lovely. The staff were helpful "snow scraper for your car. No problem". Breakfasts were the very best.

I don't usually eat at hotel dining rooms but this ome is just superb


Thank you so much
Martin and Holly

We stayed during off season for a couple of nights, we found the service was great, very helpful with advice on local walks etc, the breakfast was very tasty and lots of options (eggs benedict, blueberry pancakes as well as a very good full Scottish) , great view from the dining room, and the room was a good size. We had a room in the annex at the rear that faced onto the car park which was a little disappointing, though we were aware that a sea view would be more money, also the drinks in the bar were very expensive, which was a shame as we struggled to find any decent pubs in Portree and if the whiskies had been more reasonable we probably would have stayed by the log fire in the hotel lounge all night!

Stayed here two weeks ago with my husband to celebrate m birthday. Had visited before around eight years ago and it was wonderful then. It has since been redecorated and a new Fine Dining Restaurant and extra bedrooms have been added. It is now fantastic! We had a turret room , legate Queen style bed, Queen Anne style furniture , marble bathroom and a turret lounge area with a huge Plasma television. Beautifully decorated, very comfortable and views from front and side of hotel. Extremely clean rooms and public areas, could smell disinfectant next morning as we passed the chambermaids at work on our way to breakfast. Would definitely ask for that room again even though all the rooms are wonderful. Food as good as some of the fine dining(Michelin starred) places we have eaten in around the world. The hot seafood salad for dinner and the Eggs Benedict are to die for!Service great and staff can not be more friendly and helpful. Tried to return this weekend but sadly(for us) fully booked. Looking forward to returning very soon!

We stayed for three nights courtesy of a special offer offered by the hotel in March. Much of Skye had yet to open for the tourist season so it was relatively quiet. We were given one of the turret rooms, which was huge with a superking size bed and separate seating area. The room was tastefully decorated and comfortable although the mattress was a bit too firm compared to what we are used to. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and although the View Restaurant was not yet open, the food from the Brasserie was to a high standard and reasonably priced. We had the Seafood linguini which was superb, filled with scallops, razor clams, mussels and salmon for dinner on the first night. There was a good choice for breakfast, including "the full Scottish" which really set you up for the day, as well as other courses such as eggs benedict and asparagus and smoked fish.
The views from the restaurant over the water and to the Cuillin Hills beyond are quite simply stunning, especially when we stayed when we had clear skies and little cloud. The lounge area had a roaring fire where one could chill out during the day or take coffee after dinner.
This was our first trip to Skye and we reckon the Cuillin Hills Hotel is the ideal place to stay if you want a comfortable, quality hotel with great views, friendly staff and good food at a reasonable price whilst still being within walking distance of the town, its restaurants, shops and amenities. We do expect to return to the island but perhaps in early April when more of the tourist attractions are open.

Although a little expensive this hotel was quality through and through. Set in an idyllic quiet spot with views overlooking the harbour certainly helped the relaxation. All the staff were very friendly, polite and efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms and public areas were clean, tidy and comfortable (with the wi-fi useful and reliable). Whilst not an exhaustive menu the food quality( & quantity) was excellent both for breakfast and evening meals.

Room Tip: Select a room overlooking the Bay
