Lochbay Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 7 Waternish B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 September 2013

That was how we were greeted by our host on our arrival and he did everything possible to make sure our stay was as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. The area is stunningly beautiful and the breakfast room has a magnificent view of the bay. Breakfast itself was well cooked and we had a wide selection of food from which to choose. The rooms are impeccably clean and well appointed - with everything you would expect of a boutique hotel. The shower is very powerful - in fact I could not put it on to its full extent and stand under it. Our host was a fund of information about the area and booked excursions and restaurants for us. He even tried out his halting French on our Aunt and Uncle, which they appreciated very much. All and all, we enjoyed our stay immensely and will certainly make a return trip..

Room Tip: The best views are from the front of the house.

Thank you Johnny for your warm welcome and your very good whisky!
We fell in love with Loch Bay wich is one of the most beautiful places in the world...
Johnny's B&B is really comfortable and clean, our room had a beautiful view on the see. The breakfast was really good too.
We were really lucky to get a last minute booking at this B&B.
And we were so happy to meet Dude!
We highly recommend this B&B to everyone.

I was fortunate enough to get a last minute booking at this B&B and I am glad that I did. The rooms was really clean and comfortable and the amenities matched anything you would expect from quality hotel.

The breakfast was exceptional in both quality and quantity and Johnny does everything he can to make you feel at home.

Johnny was a great host, who had us chuckling many times during our three night stay. Great sense of humour and a warm welcome to ourselves and our two retriever dogs who enjoyed their stay in our spacious and immaculate room as much as we did. I agree with a previous comment that the shower was indeed the best we have ever encountered anywhere we have stayed. Breakfasts were excellent with lovely views from the small dining room. Don't worry about locks Johnny, it was home from home for us and we didn't even give it a thought. Thanks for a great stay and give lovely Dude a pat from us.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of our trip round Skye and the Hebrides and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more.

Johnny is a fantastic host, from the moment you arrive to the second you leave; he does everything he can to accommodate your needs.

We stayed in the front bedroom and can say that both the room and the bathroom were spotless, the facilities adequate (TV, mirrors, chair, lamps, kettle and drink making facilities) and the view from our window was outstandingly beautiful, looking over Lochbay and Stein. The bed was comfy too!

Johnny cooks a cracking breakfast, he even makes his own scotch pancakes every morning, which was an absolute treat!

We truly felt at home here from the minute we walked through the door, and we will be staying here again without a doubt!

Johnny is a wonderfully helpful host and cooks a good breakfast.

As my partner observed it’s obvious that Johnny runs this nice b&b without a ladies help. I partly agree with Petpop and their observations about lack of wardrobe, stand for suitcase, etc. are correct. The rear rooms only have a view if you peer over the frame of the dormer window, but it’s a great view.

Our biggest worry was that the guest bedrooms had no locks (unbelievable) and that Johnny himself admitted that he never locks the house when he leaves it. I tackled Johnny on this and he is fitting guest room locks, maybe already done.

I find it hard to believe that Skye is completely crime free!

Thank you for your review and compliment in the title.
I have taken onboard your "unbelievable" concern and I am getting locks fitted in the very near future in addition to the bolts on the doors to ease the concerns of the few.
I do not know of a crime in my area for quite some years, which is a great advert for people to come here, relax and enjoy the Island in the safety away from the stresses of the city
It is very difficult to try and please all the people all of the time but I won't stop trying.
Hope to see you back someday.
Kind regards
Johnny
