Reviewed April 8, 2013

Two days stayed in Drumorell B&B with my boyfriend, we were warmly welcomed by Ms. Catriona. She is very nice and she has a beautiful house with a lovely garden & rooms. And we cant forget the well prepared Scottish breakfast!!!! Really very nice!! Although it is not very close the town center, but the 10 mins walk makes chance to enjoy the lovely sky that full of stars, quite relaxing actually. It was very nice to stay there, would find Ms. Catriona again if we go back to the Isle Of Skye!!

The warm welcome we received as soon as we arrived has only been confirmed by the care Catriona takes of her guests. The house is well situated in a calm location but close enough to the town centre to be convenient. The room was very clean and ours had a lovely view on the garden. The breakfast was very enjoyable served with fresh products in a solarium. In one word, everything was perfect and I highly recommend this excellent but affordable location.

Two days at Ms. Catrionas place fullfilled my hopes of finding a B&B, where we didn´t feel like paying guest. Catrionas house are just funderful. A splendid wiev across the bay through the surrounding trees, romantic rooms and a garden house fit for hours of talking with the other guests. We got along very well with the other young couple from Germany. Catriona is a first class hostess. She cared for our wellbeing in every way. She served a nice breakfast according to our wishes, showed genuine interest in our plans for the day, added her own advices and even made it possible for us to attend a music event across the island until late in the evening. We wouldn´t hesitate to recommend this place to friends and family. We hope to repeat this hollyday with sunshine, new friends, fresh fish for diner and talkes with Catriona some time.

Room Tip: The room on the northern side are in the shade.

This lovely B&B is on the top of a small hill overlooking Portree, so the view we enjoyed from our window was excellent. The rooms were nice and comfortable, and breakfasts really enjoyable. The host is very welcoming and helpful.

We spent two days at the nice town of Portree last Summer. The B&B was perfect, clean and very welcoming.The breakfast was delightful and overall Ms Catriona was a helpful and an enjoyable hostess. The price is the standard for the B&Bs, in my opinion cheap for the service we got. I can not understand how there is a bad recommendation about this B&B . In my opinion it is the best one I stayed in Scotland. And now in my mother tongue (Spanish/Español).
El mejor B&B en que he estado este verano en Escocia. La casa es limpia y acogedora, el desayuno perfecto y la Sra Catriona un encanto y para nada es caro. No puedo entender que haya tenido una crítica (aunque solo sea una) tan negativa. Alsolutamente recomendable.

I am really surprised that this lovely little b+b has had a poor review.

The house is clean, the room (I believe there is a double and twin in total) well presented and very tidy and the breakfast was enjoyable and really tasty. The price is the same as all of the b+b's that we looked at in Portree and was much better value than another b+b we stayed in whilst in Portree.

There are lovely views from the front of the house and the owner is very accommodating- she got up at an unreasonable hour to make sure we had a breakfast before catching an early morning ferry for example.

Recommended.
