We stayed here for 3 wonderful nights as part of my significant birthday celebration, and ate in the Three Chimneys next door which I have reviewed separately. From the moment we arrived and were greeted with coffee, scones and cake to the moment we left the staff were never less than fantastic - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful; and always happy...

Bha a h-uile rud mìorbhaileach. Bha am biadh math. Uabhasach math. Bha an t-aite glè shnog. Agus bha an luchd-obair glè fhurachail cuideachd. Tha gaol agam air. Tha mi'n dochas gum bi mi air ais. (Tha an turas fada, ach brèagha.)

My husband and I stayed here during a vacation to celebrate his 50th birthday. We traveled with another couple, who had stayed here 2 years prior and had raved about it, so we had very high expectations. We are happy to report our expectations were exceeded!!! The setting is just beautiful, with the water across the road and the sheep...

We've just returned from a 3 night stay at The Three Chimneys House-Over-By and everything was perfection.

Sadly only stayed for one night. Lovely appointed modern rooms with split level and glass doors to small garden. Local ducks were fun to watch. Views of Loch Dunvegan. Large bathroom with quality toiletries. No separate shower however but large bath. Super king bed with great linen engendering a great sleep. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel...

These are beautiful rooms in a great area of Skye. Everything has been thought of and the staff were a delight. We eat in the adjoining restaurant which was very good and I have reviewed this separately. Be warned one night here is not enough! We wished we had stayed longer. You will not be disappointed.

While in Skye for 3 days, we spent one of them here and enjoyed dinner at the restaurant as well. The room very significantly exceeded our expectations - and was the nicest room we stayed in on our entire 10-day trip. The little details in the room and amenities offered were fantastic. The bed was very comfortable, the room spacious,...

Thankyou for this lovely feedback. We are very aware that Afternoon Tea is the first food and beverage that our guests experience and Breakfast is the last experience before departure.

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
