We were treated really well, the room was clean and comfortable. Food was basic but done to a high standard. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely go back! It's really close to Eilean Donan which is great if your wanting to visit.

This hotel is immaculate, the room was spotless and beautifully appointed. There was plenty of space, and free Wi-Fi . The staff were attentive with excellent service. The food could not be faulted either. The views are just wonderful, so close to the Skye bridge....More

Yes there are hair dyers. I don't remember a gym, but great trips up into the hills for great views! Ask the servers in the restaurant. The access is on the left side of hotel.
