If you like being at the Hub of social nightlife in Portree, this is for you.
If you enjoy good food at a reasonable price, this is for you.
They have definitely got something right !
The Black Bar has a thatched roof with hanging stones, large open fire,
plenty Patrons and a great atmosphere.
The smallish, crowded dining area, does 2 - 3 sittings per evening, there is always a queue.
The Breakfast is more than adequate, although on 2 days Kippers were not available.
The Staff are personable and helpful and work very hard.
The Hotel is well situated in Somerland Square , the local and touring coaches leave from there.
The harbour area and shops are within easy reach.
The Bedroom, ours was No 5, was spacious with a good view of the Square.
However - The En Suite was not up to scratch and required maintenance and cleaning and there was a problem with the TV programming which was eventually sorted out.
This is not a Hotel for those who like peace & quiet as there is music most evenings until around midnight, which resonates up to the bedrooms.
If the Isles Inn ever has an off season period, which I doubt, perhaps they would consider recarpeting the stair area (bright Tartan would be good) as the dark carpet makes the steps difficult to define.
As one of the other Diner's said - they have the right Food, the right Crack (conversation) and the right Staff.
Useful Information -
We did not have good weather and did not want to drive. So we took the DayRider coach ticket which was £7.00 per person and excellent value. To Armadale and back and then to Dunvegan and back. The Coach Drivers are very helpful and advise the time of the next bus, which allows you time to explore the local area before embussing back to Portree.
