“Wonderful Hotel...Scenic Peaceful Surroundings”
Reviewed May 26, 2004

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Eilean Iarmain a few years ago. The location is scenic and placid, on a cove, near the Sound of Sleat. The water is very calm in this cove. Across the cove is a lighthouse with sheep grazing on it's grounds. The former home of Robert Louis Stevenson, we were told. The hotel's dining room serves superb, fresh fare every day. The staff is very friendly. When we visit the Hebrides, we will definitely plan on staying there, again.

We stayed at Hotel Eilean several years ago, and had a lovely time. The Hotel is nestled in a small cove with great views of the sea and plenty of meadows around. After a busy week driving around mainland Scotland, this was a wonderfully quiet spot.

Our room was very comfortable and the sheepskin rugs on either side of the four poster bed were glorious to wake up and step out of bed on. In retrospect, I wish I'd purchased a few rugs myself to bring home! The food was very good and imagine our surprise to find an American server amongst the staff (she was there for the summer to learn Gaelic!) It was nice to hear a voice from home.

A still shares the grounds with the Hotel and the complimentary bottle from our room proved to be one of the best ones we'd tried.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and wished we'd had more time to laze about here. Our only complaint is the same as our praise - the hotel is off the beaten path and our tour of the isle made for a long day. But at the same time, it was a pleasure to return to the quietude of Hotel Eilean and sleep among the myths and legends of the area.
