We had two rooms on the main floor - what are described as "premier double rooms". The rooms do offer wonderful views of the water and hills in the distance, particularly in early morning/dusk.
One of the rooms we were assigned was an unwelcome surprise - the room and bath were "accessible" (mobility-impaired) and the shower/sink arrangement was difficult to work with and frankly detracted from an otherwise enjoyable stay. Also, be aware that the hotel turns off its boiler at night - meaning no hot water very early in the morning.
On a positive note, the rooms themselves - which are fairly modest in size - are nicely furnished, and the bedding (duvets) was spotless.
While the rooms offer tea/coffee-making facilities, there is no mini-fridge, and you will not find an alarm clock. The hotel does have wi-fi, but the download/upload speeds are very, very slow.
Parking is ample (in front of the hotel and around back).
The hotel is wonderful for use as a base to explore the Isle of Skye (we took day-trips to Dunvegan Castle and to Uig for a day-trip ferry ride to/from Tarbert), the people working at the property are pleasant and helpful, and we wish we had booked a longer stay. We recommend this hotel to you.
