“Views to die for”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Set just outside Portree, this hotel has views across the bay and out to the mountains beyond. Lovely setting.
We were given a room in an annex just outside the main building which was a disabled room. Shower not good, electric. Not sure why we got this room as the hotel was obviously not full?

Overall the hotel was good with great service, nice n clean. All you could want really, log fires, whiskey bar, great breakfast choice with the full Scottish option very good

Room Tip: Room 11 is disabled friendly. Great access but shower poor

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Stayed in a ground floor 'turret' room and on the first morning woke to the first snow fall of the season. We savoured a magical view as we enjoyed our breakfast. The location just away from the town centre is ideal. Dinner menu was adequate and service was good. Breakfast buffet was limited but ambience and view compensated. Superb location with magic outlook.

We truly enjoyed dinner here and have been coming here for dinner every time we visit Skye so this time we decided to add a stay here as well in one of the new rooms. The room is beautiful with high ceilings and newly decorated. It's also clean with good amenities. But there were power failures which interfered with the internet and the cable. The TV kept coming back on and waking us up in the middle of the night. The most annoying thing though is inconsiderate people letting the fire door slam which happened too often and kept jarring us awake.The noise from the bar area and the front entrance also carries into the room. There is a large gap under the door that could use some sound-proofing. We were very concerned about catching our early morning ferry but breakfast isn't served until 8 am. We were told to come to the dining room early to place our orders to be served right at 8, and they did, so we were happy with that. Breakfast wasn't to my liking though. There is a continental set up and you can choose from three different hot options or individual items. We both chose the Scottish pancakes but they weren't served with real maple syrup. The bacon was also not cooked enough. We explained about the room noise and the power cuts and the receptionist took £40 off the bill which we greatly appreciate and goes a long way in ensuring we will return again. Maybe not to stay overnight though.

Room Tip: Until they fix the slamming fire door located across from room 1 or fix the soundproofing on the doo...

Good:
- convenient location, in Portree town centre
- nice view of the lake and Portree harbour
- good restaurant
- ample parking space
- rooms are well kept

Bad:
- restaurant is overpriced and there are not many options in Portree
- the double bed was not very comfortable
- rooms are overpriced ( we paid 90 pounds per night for harbour facing rooms...after discount)

We stayed at this hotel last weekend and had a fantastic wee holiday. The staff were very very helpful. It was my sisters birthday and they helped in every way possible to mark the occasion from helping me to arrange flowers for her to baking little cupcakes and presenting them with a candle & 'Happy Birthday' song :0)

My sister has mobility problems and said it was the best disabled room she has ever stayed in!

The location was beautiful. We will definitely be back

Thank you to the staff at Cuillin Hills Hotel

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the sea views rooms - they are beautiful rooms with stunning views

We stayed one night on our way up to the highlands.
We were made very welcome, and were delighted with our bedroom with its own turret.
The breakfast was excellent, with a wide range of dishes to choose from.

The hotel is set on the edge of the town with wonderful views over the bay. A narrow lane (which is unlit at night) gives access to the hotel which is a 10 minute walk from the town.
We were upgraded to a superior room which had a large bed and bathroom.
The bar area was nice and dinner excellent although a bit pricey.
There was a large choice for breakfast which was of good quality
