Reviewed 4 July 2012

The Broadford Hotel was our first 'stop-over' on our recent island hopping holiday. The staff are very friendly and most welcoming. We spent three nights here and enjoyed what was our first return visit to Skye for thirty-six years - my how the island and the hotel have altered over the years! Our room was lovely and we did appreciate having an 'on-suite' sitting room with tv. The bathroom is spacious and well fitted. I think on reflection that the bar food was the more enjoyable to some of the meals we had in the restaurant, but all in all we did enjoy a most pleasant few days in the hotel. We must return.

We visited this hotel for an evening meal with a group of young adults, the service we got was excellent and the waiter/barman Tom went out of his way to make us feel welcome even offering food that was not on the menu for one of the party. The food was excellent, the service quick and friendly and the price very reasonable.
Thank you very much

This is not a "mass market" coach tour hotel providing accommodation and food for large groups of travellers, and should provide more personal service, particularly when not apparently very busy. Dinner here has been assessed by others, but breakfast, which I feel is often neglected by hotel management, and sadly is a dispiriting experience in many Scottish hotels, was rather bleak in that no one approached the table even after the first phase of breakfast was finished, and a waitress had to be called over to order the cooked element, coffee etc. She was very courteous, and appeared not to be from say elsewhere in Europe, (although some of the best service and attention we have had in Scotland has been from staff born outwith this country), and attended promptly thereafter. Although the menu was comprehensive enough,the amount of toast was minimal, the smoked salmon with the scrambled egg did not look very inviting, and one had to specifically request a refill of the small coffee cups, although the coffee itself was very good. Breakfast is the last experience one has in a hotel, and certainly was not very favourable here. Although I'm sure this hotel does tick all the corporate boxes, the impression is not one of a warm Scottish welcome.

Tried finding accommodation in portree but was booked out. Rang this hotel late in the afternoo n and managed o get a double room. Arrived to find we also had a separate sitting room. Very reasonably priced and the rooms had been renovated. When I asked when they were refurbished was told 5 years ago!! We also ate in the dining room and the food was excellent. Beautiful views from the restaurantover the bay ' a beautiful setting. The manager was very couteous. And pleasant with a smile and the waitress was also friendly and informative.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

We only had food here and did not stay the night. The food was very good quality and the value was reasonable. Service was lacking at times which meant that the meal was a bit drawn out. Other than that, we had a great time and we shall return.

We stayed here for 1 night while travelling around the Isle of Skye. We found the manager Kevin very helpfil and was very hands on serving dinner and breakfast. The rest of the staff where very friendly and attentive. There is another bar attatched which has a disco /live band playing on a Saturday night but this did not cause any problem with the hotel. The view was wonderful and the position fabulous. The hotel was very comfortable and the breakfast delicious.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room overlooking the front of the hotel and found the room very quiet. Bed was comfor...
