This is everything you would expect from a B&B. I arrived after a long days drive from Aberdeen. I hadn't booked anything. Kyleakin is a small town and a dead end which means it's quiet. It's a great place to explore the Isle of Skye from, especially as the drive back to Edinburgh is much shorter from there. The pub is literally next door and there are great views from the rooms. Chris (the owner) was immediately welcoming and full of dry British humour. He had just changed the heater in my room so it hadn't been on but soon warmed up and was more than cosy. Everything was clean and neat. The decor is a bit outdated but the bed was comfy and the room was huge by other B&B standards I had stayed in. Wifi was a welcome inclusion as well. I have to say what makes this a standout stay is the owner. Chris literally could not do enough to make me feel welcome which is much appreciated when your travelling alone. He was happy to welcome me into his lounge and chat. Scamp (the dog) is always up for a pat as well. On top of this his local knowledge is enviable when you want to know what to see in this stunning part of Scotland. And the guy can cook! If it fits I highly recommend you stay here.
