My family and I stayed for 2 nights on Skye in August as part of our tour of Scotland this summer and we were delighted to stay here. Canowindra is a beautiful modern property with gorgeous interiors. Georgie and family were very welcoming and helpful from minute one and served a great breakfast - the homemade granola was very special....

Very happy to have been able to book a stay here at Canowindra. It's my first stay at a B&B and the level of service, comfort, and cleanliness did not disappoint me and my wife. Rooms were designed with a homey atmosphere and appointed with luxury amenities. The bed and linens were very comfortable too. Definitely a five star experience....

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Canowindra in October 2016. The home is convienently located a few minutes from Portree, and appears to be quite new. We stayed in the "Fishes" room. The room was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was spotless. The bed had a very soft memory foam, or some sort of mattress cover,...

Exceptional service at this quiet B&B outside of town. Georgie is a gem and runs the B&B with casual confidence and grace. She was able to secure some reservations at a great little restaurant in town that only seats 12-15 people. This is a great place to rest after some treks in the hills.

The breakfast area is bright and sunny with extensive use of glass. Both continental and full English breakfast are available. With only 4 rooms, the dining area is roomy. A...

We had an enjoyable stay at Canowindra which is a gorgeous B&B, peacefully located just outside Portree. Rick and Georgie were welcoming, professional and helpful in an easygoing way. The breakfasts were consistently excellent, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in, and the room was stylish and always nice to return to after each day...

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at Canowindra. The B&B is very stylish which is nice, but more importantly is the excellent breakfast, comfy bed, booklet with area recommendations, yummy cookies with the tea/coffee service and THE best shower I think you will ever find!! Rick and Georgie are welcoming in a very easy relaxed way. Canowindra...

This place is one of the nicest B&Bs we have ever stayed at (and we have stayed at countless all over the world). The rooms are spotless, very spacious, and very comfortable. From the bottled water to the teas to the toiletries, everything is top notch. The bathroom is very large and the tub is a standalone footed bath that...

Canowindra is a super place. Very quiet, nicely designed and the hosts are extremely helpful. The breakfast was very nicely prepared. Would have preferred the owners dog and cat not to be present at all.
