Booked just one night in summer with 6 friends. We enjoy the stage, the surroundings and the meals. You have to be aware of ferry timetables to fit your journey agenda. The dinner at the house was wonderful, which I recommend to take with local beer. The only inconvenient found is that the bar closes a bit soon ;-)

Me and my boyfriend booked the Raasay house for two nights, which included breakfast, a lunch and activities for £150. We both thought it was extremely good value for money! The food was nice and the room was nice and clean. The activities were really fun and the "activity leaders" were so friendly and positive. They were truly really fantastic! Otherwise the hotel staff was a bit of a mix. Some of them very incredibly friendly while others were not unhelpful but maybe a bit cold. The island as a whole is absolutely beautiful and not at all as busy as Skye. We felt so relaxed there and think Raasay is worth a visit for sure!

Wanted to provide review for Trip Advisor after we went to Raasay in June but 'you' didn't come back to me!!! So I will try now. -
We went to the Island of Raasay on 18 June but booked Raasay House Hotel & Activities for one night only as we were unsure what is there. Raasay House dates back to about 1750 and has had a very chequered history in recent times (50 years) culminatung with an extensuve fire in January 2009. It has been rebuilt and refurbished and currently has an odd mixture of uses ranging from outdoor activites to the making of an hotel with reasonably high standards.
Early in 2013 at least three bedrooms have been fitted out to 'hotel' standard with en suite facilites. These are kept apart from dormitory type bedrooms often used for school parties - when we were there about 50 teenagers were in residence. Sounds like a recipt for disaster but the minimal mixing of the groups.was OK - there are separate dining rooms with the hotel part having bar and fairly good menu; the food we had was enjoyably well prepared and presented. The bedroom we had was excellent but did not have a view to the front / sea.
Come to Raasay House Hotel for the many activities or, like us, if you are interested in the history of the Island - former villages, closed iron ore mine (worked partly with German prisoners of war 1914-18) and.... of course 'Calum's Road'.
Please note that Borrodale House is about 500m from Raasay House; it was a hotel but is currently lying empty. One or two houses provide B&B and there is a youth hostel on the Island.
Check direct with Raasay House Hotel to find out what you are letting yourself into and you might even get a deal on the rack rate of £125 room rate including breakfast for two. Be open minded and you will find something unusual - and enjoyable.

Room Tip: Our room to the back was nice but a room the front should have a good view.

We came upon Raasay House by accident but I can honestly say that we were delightfully surprised by the place. Rooms are outstanding. Meals are high quality and reasonably priced. Activities (we took part in Archery and Sailing) are well led and entertaining. Staff are fantastic - very professional and attentive. I would have no doubt that we will be back again.

For info, leave your car on Skye at Sconser and you will save £24 on the ferry cost. You can get around Raasay by bike or on foot if you are energetic enough.

There were some lovely touches at this hotel. It's a beautiful building that has recently been refurbished. The staff without exception are lovely, the toiletries are good, the evening meal was great (the front of house was also brilliant) and the room was spotless.
However this can't really be sold as a hotel and for travellers like me who aren't interested in an activities type experience there were too many things that let it down. The rooms are very basic and with no TV or place to sit, the shower had no temperature control that I could find and switched off every 30 seconds as did the light which was on a sensor and didn't recognise movement in the shower cubicle.
Breakfast has to be pre ordered if you need to have it before 8am but there is no information informing people of that. We didn't manage to have a breakfast but the hotel management were very good and refunded the cost of it.
This hotel is really an activity centre for children and with such lovely staff and in such a beautiful place is probably one of the best in Scotland however as a hotel it lacks the basic amenities that most hotels now offer.

Room Tip: There are three luxury rooms. I didn't see them but they might be a better option for travellers who don't want to sample the activities.
