I loved this small but perfectly formed hotel. rooms are just everything you need and it was a shame I only had one night because I would happily live in it! The hotel is small but doesn't lack anything because of that, its attentive team make sure your needs are met & you quickly feel very much [art of it...

We exhaled and relaxed immediately, we knew straight away that we wouldn't want to leave!  It was a fabulous overnight stay, we really enjoyed the little touches (baking on arrival especially), the immaculate & beautifully appointed room and the fabulous food (we enjoyed our Three Chimneys dinner).  The owners & staff have created a special atmosphere in the House Over-By,...

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

My husband and I visited the restaurant about five years ago and vowed to come back and stay, which we finally did as a 10th wedding anniversary treat this week, and it exceeded our expectations which were already pretty high! You expect the food next door to be exceptional (and it was!). You expect the accommodation to be first class...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while visiting the island. The service is absolutely fantastic! I am in a small manual wheelchair (Quickie 2) and the accessible room was perfect. Beautifully furnished and so cozy with a lovely view. The bathroom is HUGE with both a tub and separate shower. The common areas have bookshelves with books...

Location is exceptional, especially if you are dining next door. Although the hotel experience is definitely at a premium level - the price is too. Enormous room was actually a suite with great touches like welcoming chocolates+strawberries. Views across the bay were great from our room and there was french window access to the outside to benches. Now breakfast ......

This fine dining experience is a must when visiting the beautiful Isle of Skye! From the moment you arrive the service is excellent and the atmosphere cosy. We had the land and sea tasting plate that was delicious and very creatively presented. Staff were extremely professional throughout our 4 hour experience! Highly recommend this restaurant!

We drove a long (and breathtakingly beautiful) way to experience the much-anticipated Three Chimneys, and had high expectations. The inn is lovely, very tastefully decorated with a nautical theme, and with very friendly staff. Our room was a good size, with a comfortable sofa, excellent bed and linens, and a large bathroom with soaker tub. Very clean and with nice...

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
