“Brilliant B and B”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We recently stayed with Donna and Andrew in Skye for a couple of nights. It was an ideal stay with everything we wanted, a warm welcome, lovely en suite room, and great breakfast. They happily accepted our two dogs and were helpful and friendly but also just left us to come and go entirely as we wished.
It is an ideal B and B for us and is wonderful value for money. We will certainly be going back again!

This is a small, quiet, friendly, family run B and B which is great value for money. The location is ideal, in some beautiful countryside with great views from our room, yet under 10 minutes drive to Portree and a great base for exploring the rest of the island. The room was very spacious with an en-suite bathroom and guests also have access to a large tv lounge as well as tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. In addition the breakfasts were great, with a wide choice to suite every taste. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and would be very happy to return in the future.

Fantastic!, We thoroughly recommend the House on the Falls.
We love it here and have been coming every year for the last 4 years.
Donna and Andrew are fantastic hosts and work hard to keep their high standards. The house is immaculate and well designed.
The two spacious bedrooms are en-suite and guests have full use of the lounge to watch tv or play games or just look out at the beautiful views of the falls and the surrounding country-side. It is so peaceful here and yet it is only a 10 minute drive away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Portree which has excellent facilities, boat trips and shopping.
Donna offers good value for money with several choices for breakfast and everything is cooked fresh and presented beautifully.
Nothing is a trouble.
On the morning of our day trip to the Outer Hebrides, Donna very kindly made sure that we had our cooked breakfast half an hour earlier so we had plenty of time to catch the Ferry.
We thoroughly recommend The House on the Falls at Peiness as it is the perfect retreat, the beds are so comfortable you will enjoy your stay.

This is the best value for money bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. The house is beautiful with very large room and ensuite with very spacious tv lounge. The owners were very welcoming and very happy to give information and advice on places to visit. The scenery from the house is spectacular and well worth the visit! A large selection is offered for breakfast including full cooked and fresh fruit salad so this suited both my partner and I.
I would highly recomend this bed and breakfast and for £25 per person is excellent value for money.

It is out in the middle of nowhere. No Internet reception capable of checking e mails correctly. No tv in rooms. Rooms are not serviced on a daily basis and was somewhat disappointed with the whole experience. Was even more disappointed when I tried to raise my concerns I was totally ignored. I then received some comments from the owners husband and decided to pack up and leave. Overpriced and not friendly at all.

Quiet location at the end of the single road, a bit difficult to find but suits us perfectly. Rather a family home than a typical b&b business. We had a very big, comfortable and clean en-suite room. Breakfast was ok, tasty and fulfilling. The owner was nice and polite but in my opinion could be more friendly and communicative, little chat while serving a breakfast isn`t too much, is it? But overall it is a decent place to stay.
