“Loverly Revisit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Just got back from our holiday in Skye this week and I and my wife stayed again in Betty's place for 2 days. Apart from the extremely and extraordinary warm and sunny weekend in Isle of Skye in October, Betty just let us felt her hospitality and welcome one more time. We stayed in the same room as 3 years ago and everything was maintained in exactly the same good condition and standard. The only thing we are missing is when we can visit Staffin the third time.

This was our first trip to Scotland and Hallaig House was our first B&B in Scotland. We were a bit trepidatious, because we usually stay in boutique hotels. I shouldn't have worried, Hallaig House set our standards so high for the rest of the trip. First of all, the room and bathroom were spotless. The bed was new and very comfortable. There was lots of reading material, wi-fi worked beautifully (in such a remote spot!). The layout is very nice, there are 3 bedrooms upstairs, with a shared sitting area, which includes an honor bar, with chips and snacks, a comfy couch and chairs. Working skylights let in lots of light and air, breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. I couldn't believe the quality we were getting. We decided to stay an extra night because we couldn't tear ourselves away!

There is no better word for it: the place is perfect. Very nice and quiet with fantastic views, clean and comfortable rooms, fantastic breakfast, and extremely friendly hosts Hallaig is exactly what I expected. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Skye. Don't hesitate to ask for advice on how to spend your time either!

The Hallaig was amazing, such a beautiful house with amazing views and Betty is such a lovely host. The silence was wonderful and we can't wait to return.
The beds are really comfy and the whole house is really clean and welcoming.

After having driven nearly 7 hours through rampant wind and rain it was a relief to check in at such a great B&B. Travelling with my fiancée and my folks we received a warm greeting from Betty. Big flowering lilies made the hallway smell great and being led up to the rooms I was impressed by the level of cleanliness. The beds are great as is the rest of the room. Breakfast was a treat and both Betty and her husband were excellent hosts.
I was especially impressed by the location as well as the value of the rooms as they were significantly cheaper than many of the other places I have stayed in Scotland.
If you are thinking about visiting Skye I would definitely recommend staying at Hallaig Guest House whilst in Staffin.

My friend and I stayed here in May while on a 2 week road trip through the British Isles. Of this time, Hallaig was by far the best accommodations. The bathroom was spacious and luxurious. The room was beautifully decorated with breathtaking views. The beds - we have never slept on more comfortable beds probably in our lives. Such a delicious night's sleep. The area is secluded and peaceful. The only sounds at night were a nearby stream and a few sheep baa-ing.
Betty was the perfect hostess. We arrived late and were hungry and she created the most fantastic dinner ever. We are still craving the turnip soup and sticky toffee pudding.
Everything was phenomenal. I would recommend Hallaig to everyone planning a trip to Skye.
