Russell and Patrice have created a delightful home away from home for their guests at the Hillstone Lodge on Skye. The Lodge is beautifully designed, and the room we stayed at enjoyed an amazing view of the loch. Russell and Patrice worked hard to make their guests feel welcomed and comfortable, including by cooking one of the best breakfasts we've ever had and spoiling us with Patrice's gorgeous cakes every afternoon. We are so pleased that we found this gem of a B&B for our holiday on Skye.
We stayed for two nights at this delightful lodge (return visit) and the standards were as high as ever. Our room was immaculate as was the en-suite with all the toiletries one could wish for. Breakfast were beautifully served with good choices, from lovely fresh fruit to a "full Scottish", and everything in between. Our hosts, Patrice and Russell were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay with them a memorable one. A bonus to staying at Hillstone Lodge were the fabulous views across Loch Dunvegan to Dunvegan Castle. Magical.
Having stayed in places across the world Hillstone is a favourite, relaxing, cosseted, just amazing - superlatives can't express how great the atmosphere and standard of accommodation and food which Patrice & Russell provide. As before everything was perfect, from the warm welcome, the high quality of everything, from the rooms, the amazing food to the warmth and attention to detail all add up to a fantastic experience. All of the above topped up with unspoilt views, alongside knowledgeable hosts who always provide great suggestions and information for places to visit and eat, make Hillstone a unique experience.
Had a really nice weekend at Hillstone even the weather was bad. Russell and Patrice made a great 3 course dinner and overall the service was fantastic. The Lodge is fantastic when the weather was bad, and we had to stay inside the hole day. The breakfast was exceptionally good. Overall there is a good atmosphere and the host’s were really great.
We were so pleased to have a chance to stay again at Hillstone Lodge – during the pandemic. The care and preparation demonstrated by Patrice and Russell gave the two of us great confidence. We keep returning because to us there is no other place to stay on Skye - they are our number one – we have stayed across the world in so many highly rated places – but it is Hillstone Lodge that is our annual happy place – the quality of service the friendliness and the warmth of greeting and care is set at such a high and yet natural level- the experience they have, of working for many years in the high-end hotel trade, shows in so many ways. In some ways I don’t wish to publish a review like this – it makes it all the harder for us to book our annual slot – but we like to give feedback and to share.…
