My friend and I booked a twin room at the Broadford Hotel this July. When we checked in, the smell of mould was appalling, so I requested another room. They could only offer us a double room, which was inappropriate. We spent the night with the door propped open (obvious security issue, there) and the window wide open to create a cross breeze to help alleviate the smell of spores attaching themselves to our lungs. Unfortunately, our room was directly above the pub entrance, so we had the smokers outside keeping us awake until after midnight.
For this state of affairs, they refunded us 30 pounds from a bill of 140 pounds, which was a small token given that this was the worst stay on our vacation, as well as one of the most expensive. On the plus side, the Scottish breakfast and dining area was excellent.
I do not understand how the Scottish Tourist board could award this hotel 4 stars, when we stayed in infinitely superior hotels that are only 3 stars.
My advice to Skye visitors: avoid Broadford and head for Portree or Uig directly.More
