“Lovely Location”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights and can't really fault the place. It's an old hotel with some lovely antiquated rooms. Staff were excellent. Breakfast was lovely! Open fire in lounge with huge couches for lounging in. Beautiful and peaceful area. Would stay there again.

I stayed at Skeabost Country House whilst up north on business, lovely hotel in wonderful peaceful surroundings.

The staff were all very helpful and friendly and are a real credit to the hotel, the food was also excellent and plentiful, the hotel also has a snooker room which was an added bonus for me to pass some time and wifi which was great

Would not hesitate to return again in future.

I stayed here for a business trip, and was looking for something close to Portree. As luck would have it, my first choices (in town) were all booked, hence I looked a little further afield.

The Skeabost is only a few miles outside of Portree, so distance wasn't really a problem.

Full of character and with staff keen to help, I was soon made at home. A warm welcome on a cold night , and I was soon recovering from my travels.

I can honestly say, I have never know location so quiet!!!! And no mobile phone signals - a real plus if you want time to unwind!

Next time, I hope to have a longer stay, so I can enjoy the facilities on offer!

My partner and I booked a last minute 3 day Christmas break at the Skeabost and had a fantastic time there. The hotel is cosy, comfortable and set in the most beautiful surroundings. Every meal presented to us was delicious and the staff were absolutely wonderful. Little touches like a Christmas stocking hanging on our bedroom door on Christmas morning and a small gift on our breakfast table showed thoughtfulness and made our stay quite special. We shall return to this welcoming little hotel and will recommend it to my friends.
Oh, and our dog was welcomed too!
