“Very pleasant except for sweary locals”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We had a fantastic room which was the size of a flat. The Lodge is well situated and the owner and staff are extremely pleasant. Breakfast was good too. A small word of warning: the bar also doubles up as the restaurant. Both nights we were there there was a group of local Drinkers (capital D) who swore loudly every other word. If you are offended by such language eat in the hotel conservatory. Personally I found it boorish and was surprised the drinkers weren't told by staff to moderate their language.

I have been going to this hotel for three years now. Approx. 6 times each year for a 3 or 4 day break winter and summer.

I have been visiting Scotland for some 20 years now and I wish I had discovered this Gem of a hotel sooner.
I must have driven past it 50 times on my way to Skye, but as I was so near to Skye ( approx. 20 minutes to Skye bridge) I never stopped here. ( my mistake ! ).
The bedrooms are very clean and have quality furniture and quality beds and bedding ( no plastic mattress covers here ! )
Great views from all bedrooms (room 14 has the best views)
The food is really good and they have an extensive wine list.( my weakness is good wines ! )
A good tip for you, eat in the bar rather than the restaurant it has a really good atmosphere..

.

Room Tip: Rooms 14 and 16 have the best views.

Stayed for a weekend break of walking and sightseeing and couldn't have been more pleased. Staff very welcoming, room (1) was beautiful with lovely views, breakfast was brilliant and we also had dinner both nights which was great. Chef even made extra vegetarian dish for me. Took two wee doggies who also had a great time and were made welcome. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Room one is great size with lovely views.

Stayed here 2 nights on business, room was clean average size for a double bed no bath but good sized shower, towels and bedding fresh and clean.. good atmosphere in the bar. Bar food excellent quality good choice and reasonably priced. Breakfast also a good experience good food. Well presented and cooked.
Overall I would recommend you pop In and sample what's on offer either for the drink or the food or accommodation.

I have stayed on Skye several times but decide to try something new. Kintail Lodge was such a nice surprise! From the booking to the 2 nights we were there to the check-out process, everything was really easy and friendly. I was travelling with 2 other women, so we booked 2 rooms with an adjoining bathroom. The rooms were perfect...tastefully done with everything you might need. The views were amazing, and the location was ideal for touring Skye. We had dinner in the bar both nights, and the food was great. The bar can be busy (in a good way), and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. There is a lovely sitting room with games and DVDs, as well.

All in all, a great place. If it's good enough for Brad Pitt (he stayed while filming in Scotland a few years ago), it's good enough for us! Highly recommended for an authentic Highlands experience!

Room Tip: Most rooms face the water...ask when you book.

Usually whizz past this hotel on our way to and from Skye, but we stayed for one night last week; a warm welcome on arrival. Very relaxing place. Sun was shining when we arrived and the next morning when we left. Room very comfy and clean..Bar meal very tasty with good service. Would stay again.

I have stayed in this excellent hotel about 100 times now and have NEVER been disappointed with service, welcome, quality rooms or standard of food. Michelle, Marie-Anne and all the girls make you very welcome and provide the highest standard service. I would highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying again next week.
