“Everything is perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2010

The White Heather is a delightful small hotel/B&B right on the waterfront - the views you see in the photos are for real!! Gillian our hostess is quite lovely, and very helpful. There are so many little thoughtful things such as the laminated map & guide in our room that we could use, the washing machine & dryer (detergent provided) and fresh milk. The rooms are not large, but are comfortable with quality fittings and finishes, eg double glazed windows, free wifi, with a guest study and computer if you didn't bring your own. (And the poached eggs for breakfast are the very best)
Thank you for a lovely few days staying with you

Gillian and Craig are extremely friendly and only too happy to do anything to help. Good welcome info and restaurant recommendations/menus.
Quiet spot on the harbour in Kyleakin, a tiny town with few/no amenities, just over the Skye bridge. Close to Kyle of Lochalsh (with plenty of services and restaurants) and the mainland. Half hour or so drive to Portree and other towns on the Isle of Skye.
Highly recommend Craig's poached eggs! Great breakfast spread, plenty of options.

Very nice room overlooking the harbour, not large, but very clean and comfortable with a good shower room en suite. Gillian made us very welcome, nothing too much trouble and supplied us with one of the best breakfasts we have had anywhere.
Great value for money.

Unfortunately this hotel did not have availability for the nights needed. However, I spoke with Gillian, and she couldn't have been more helpful in suggesting alternatives and bringing her husband in to the conversation to help.

Just from this brief conversation, I doubt one could go wrong booking this hotel and certainly I will make an another attempt to book the White Heather in the future.

Having recently stayed at the White Heather Hotel , Gillian & Craig made our stay a truly pleasant experience. The advice on local weather assisted our decissions on where to travel on certain days. Gillian runs the front side of the hotel like a Swiss watch and the back up - Craig makes the best breakfast, more than enough to eat to have a good day out. The bedroom was spotless and shower & toilet spotless. All facilities are on hand to assist in having a super stay which we did. We Will Be Back.
Thank you very much.

As owners, Gillian and Craig have thought of everything possible to make the stay in Kyleakin comfortable and enjoyable. From the moment you meet Gillian you know that everything is going to be perfect. When you need her, she just appears as if by magic. Gillian even recommended somewhere to eat in Kyle and made the booking for us. It was somewhere we would never have found and at first glance you wonder if it was a good decision BUT the food there was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS, freshly cooked, with super portions and very reasonably priced. Do try it if you can!!! Rooms at the hotel are comfortable and well appointed. The dining room is spotless with beautiful new furniture. Breakfast is ginormous with beautiful bacon, sausages etc. If we had known what a wonderful hotel this was, we would have changed our plans to have had an extra day there. I will recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a perfect stay on Skye. Many thanks from The Burt and Robinson families
