We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The location was excellent and the views stunning. We had a ground floor room in the annex. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. All the facilities were there but what let it down was that it was a cold spell and the heating was not adequate. The room was...

Stayed there for two nights in the hotel itself, it was absolutely fantastic. We sampled the food in the bar on the first night, which was great and on the second night we ate in the restaurant where the food was exceptional. The staff were extremely friendly and would sit and chat with you. The views were amazing. Without question...

Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our restaurant. As you quite rightly pointed out, we do not have televisions in any of the rooms, except the suites. We are a traditional wee highland hotel and feel noisy TV's distract from the peace and quiet which we pride ourselves on. As you...

Wonderful visit in Skye. Hotel location is top notch and is gorgeous. Had a great dinner in dining room one night and at the pub on site another night. Both spots are not to be missed. Hotel staff is very accommodating and trying the local whisky is a must.
