Although the restaurant component of our stay was eye-wateringly expensive, all the other hotel afiects were first class and very very enjoyable. From our personal greeting on arrival to our easy checkout, all was sublimely smooth and luxuriant. Afternoon tea, stylish; drawing room facilities, relaxing and very well thought through; our suite, fabulously decadent and comfortable (and bed to die...

We went back to Three Chimneys exactly one year after our first visit. As you journey North your sense of anticipation rises; you know that the front of house team's welcome will be immaculate, your room will be perfect, you speculate about what delights Scott and his wonderful brigade of chefs will have created for you either a la carte...

It was an absolute delight to welcome you back! You are right...it is often very hard for any experience to live up to how special it feels the first time around. So it is especially pleasing to hear you had such a great time with us on this visit: haste ye back!

The room is very beautiful, clean and comfortable and the drive of over 3 hours so worth it. Decided to go for the 8 course dinner tasting menu. Very impressed with the chef use of ingredients and well execution. Staff is friendly and welcoming.

Had fantastic weekend here staying for two nights. The accommodation is lovely and luxurious. Some extra special touches with afternoon tea being served in the room. All in all a fantastic experience. It is pricy but for that special occasion would definitely recommend.

We absolutely loved it here. First class accommodation, beautiful and relaxed furnishings, lovely extras in the room and a wonderful view at Breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful but not in your face. Complimentary Tea/Coffee with "some baking" is a pure delight. If you can afford it stay for two nights for an excellent romantic recharge

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Three Chimneys and The House Over-By is a Gold 5-Star Restaurant with Rooms in a stunning, remote location beside the sea in the north west corner of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Colbost is situated on the shores of Loch Dunvegan, a wide sea loch that opens into The Minch, the narrow stretch of sea between Skye and the Outer Hebrides. The views are stunning whatever the time of year. The Three Chimneys is one of Scotland's most famous restaurants, specialising in the freshest local produce including wonderful seafood from the immediate coastal waters. Head Chef, Scott Davies, is well-known for his passion for Scottish ingredients, cooked simply to allow the flavours to sing for themselves. Providing very skilful, professional, but friendly and welcoming service at all times is what the Restaurant and Reception teams strive to achieve. Standards of cleanliness and comfort in the bedroom suites in The House Over-By are meticulous. The rooms have wonderful sea views and breakfasts (all-inclusive in the room rate) are served in the Morning Room with its panoramic views across the loch, where seals can be seen clearly on frequent occasions. Eddie and Shirley Spear have owned the business for 31 years and remain pro-active within their business daily. ... more   less
