“Would do it again”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Very quiet, very comfortable small B & B with only four rooms, and fantastic view from two of the bedrooms over the sea and the quaint village of Portree. Very nice breakfast room, good breakfast with lots of choice, nice sutting area for reading overlooking the bay.
Room was not big, but spotless and well equipped, excellent bathroom, the mattresses could have been more comfortable, but nevertheless this establishment can be highly recommended.
Location five minutes by car from Portree, so in high season moving a vehicle and finding a parking space in town centre could be challenging.

My husband and I chose to stay at Almondbank B&B for part of our Scotland honeymoon, based on a recommendation from Rick Steves. What a great place! The room was cozy and clean and the view was excellent with a huge picture window overlooking the bay. Breakfast was wonderful - the full Scottish breakfast as well as the porridge. Effie is such a lovely hostess. Thank you for making our stay such a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Highly recommend a room with a sea view

Room spotless, view amazing, food fabulous, everything you need in a bed and breakfast. Owner is a lovely friendly lady, so pleasant. Within walking distance of town but a taxi was only £3 which is handy when it's raining. Would definitely return.

This is a high quality bed and breakfast, only a few minutes walk from the centre of town. I booked my parents into the Almondbank as part of a trip up to Skye. The b and b was spotless and very comfortable. The owner was very knowledgeable and friendly. The rooms come with freesat and also free wifi which is very welcome in skye where mobile 3G is not great. A high quality breakfast was served. The accommodation has fantastic views across the harbour at Portree.

We stayed for two nights and wished we could have stayed for two weeks. Mrs Nicholson, the owner, was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and cosy. Almond bank is beautifully situated overlooking the water. It's also an easy walk into Portree and only 5mins walk from the Aros Centre. A superb B & B.

We were recommended to Almondbank by the owner of a B&B near Stirling and managed to book two nights on the return leg of our trip around Scotland. Our room had a magnificent view over the lake out to sea although it was rather compact, a bit dated in decor, and very hot. The guest's lounge was very large and well furnished and the breakfast was very good. Effie (the owner) has been doing B&B for many years and is charming, helpful and a very good hostess. Some of the drivers of minibuses (effie calls them 'her boys') from a tour firm called Rabbies stay overnight and although the sight of those vehicles parked in the drive could be off-putting to some they were not intrusive and everything made up for it. It is not near the town but we had a car so that was not an issue. Would recommend it.

Very comfortable with attention to many comforts such as a reading lounge, magazines, lovely breakfast, and very helpful hostess.
My room was very nice, but the "ensuite" was a private bathroom a short distance down the hallway where you are in full view of the kitchen and reception area as you run out in your PJs or towel...I thought ensuite meant attached to my room.
The rooms are very nicely decked out; however there are no blockout curtains so if you cant sleep in daylight you need to take eyeshades if you visit in summer because it gets light by 4 am.
Its on the perimeter of town, about 15 minutes walk to the restaurants. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Clarify that your ensuite actually is an ensuite Take eyeshades if you cant sleep in a room that i...
