Ullinish Country Lodge Hotel
Ranked #1 of 6 Struan B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2013

My fiancee and I stayed at Ullinish over the weekend to celebrate our engagement. It is the best hotel we have ever stayed in and we loved every minute of our stay. The Johnson room is well worth the money and the food we ate for dinner and breakfast was truly a masterpiece. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We can't wait to visit again!

We received a warm and friendly welcome at this great "restaurant with rooms", which lacked nothing we would expect from a hotel. Despite the cold weather all parts of the establishment were very cosy, with an open fire in the lounge. The food was consistently excellent, including at breakfast -the Eggs Benedict is highly recommended. Service was very good without being pretentious.

We were lucky to have fine weather throughout our stay and the views of the Cuillin Hills are excellent. The walk out onto Oronsay Island is well worthwhile, tides permitting, with tall cliffs and lots of birdlife.

Highly recommended and good value for money.

Room Tip: Our twin room was "Harport", a little small but very well appointed.

From the moment we entered it felt like home. Pam and Brian are perfect hosts. But it's not just about the welcome. Afternoon tea included, in front of the fire, a glass of sherry in the room on arrival, total cleanliness, quality of room and fittings/fixtures (the Johnson room), you get the idea. This is 5* quality from top to bottom. And then there is the food, as good as we have had on the island so far (far better than Duisdale and on a par with the Michelin Kinloch Lodge). Thank you Pam and Brian for a brief but so pleasant stay. There are some reviews on here that are detrimental, ignore them and pay a visit to the Ullinish.

On a recent visit to the UK we decided to make the isle of skye our furthest destination. With our B @ B book we discovered this property. Outstanding views, rooms , service and a great restaurant and wine list to boot. We were fortunate to be able to stay an extra night as we just didnt want to leave. The finest stay of our whole trip to Scotland.

Room Tip: There are two rooms that face the ocean and cliffs that we had on our first night that were fantasti...

We booked this lodge and were so delighted by the hospitality the room and the FOOD!!! We had a wonderful 4 poster bed with a large modern bathroom. Great base for sight seeing and wonderful to come back too after climbing and walking. There is also a lovely walk down to the sea where we saw some seals.
In the evening all the guests meet in the lounge for pre dinner drinks and a chance to exchange our experiences of the day. Pam and Brian were fantastic hosts.
Will definately come back.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the estuary.

A hotel that delivers on its advertised promise is a rare pleasure. Ullinish does just that.

Brian and Pam Howard run an exceptional small country lodge hotel located in a remote and beautiful corner of Skye. It's 'a restaurant with rooms', in their words. And a restaurant which has won awards. Unsurprisingly, because the food really is superb.

The lodge, once a farmhouse, has comfort, character and history. Dr Johnson stayed here on his famous 'Journey to the Western Isles of Scotland', and though no ghostly trace remains (we stayed in his room) it's not hard to imagine the old boy standing straddled in the drawing room, backside to a roaring fire, a glass of brandy in his hand as he expounds some deep philosophic point.

Suffice to say the food is exquisite, the hotel extremely comfortable and the hospitality warm and genuine and without any hint of snobbery. We’ll be back.

Room Tip: Sleep where Dr Johnson did. Great views of sea, islands and hillsides.
