We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Hillside and we couldnt disagree with the previous reviews more!
We hadn't pre-booked but when we arrived we were given a warm welcome by Mick and Lynda, we were asked to remove our shoes but only because the upstairs of the house is carpeted, as downstairs is completely tiled they had no problem with us keeping our shoes on when downstairs.
The en-suite room was the only toom available when we arrived and whilst there aren't the views of the loch as at the front, this wasnt a problem for us, since you are only there to sleep and eat breakfast and then I assume are going out for the day this room was more than adequate.
We enjoyed a cooked breakfast on both mornings of our stay - with views facing the loch at the front and I thought it was great that as the guests, we were able to request breakfast at a time which suited us rather than them, this isnt something you tend to get at many B&B's and was a nice 'extra'.
With regards to the 'rules and regulations' a previous reviewer has mentioned, we were advised about what could and couldnt be put down the toilet and the reasons for this which we were understanding about.
I think the remark about 'paying the mortgage' is not fair - we all have bills and mortgages to pay and B&B' owners are no different however I believe that the time spent with us explaining about all the things to do on Skye and the helpful hints we received have shown us that the owners of Hillside do value their customers and encourage them to make the most of their time on Skye.
