This is a very good hotel in a wonderful location. We stayed here for 3 nights in July and enjoyed our stay very much, in spite of a few minor issues. We had chosen a Cuillins room which cost more but guaranteed the amazing view over Portree harbour to the Cuillins in the distance (when the rain and mist allowed us to see them). The room was large, airy and beautifully furnished with a large four-poster bed and a double window for the view. The en-suite was modern and well appointed, but the shower was in a large corner bath which was not good, especially as the water pressure was poor so that the flow fell on the seat of the bath, not the body. (The on/off control was awaiting a replacement part which might resolve the problem?)
We were on a bed and breakfast package and breakfast was very good, served in the View restaurant which has the wonderful view to the Cuillins. There was the usual cold buffet, while hot food was prepared fresh to order - the eggs benedict was excellent. Dinner is in the same setting and on two nights was very good with excellent service, but on our first night was very slow for which we received an apology and some free drinks.
If you like whisky (we don't) there was an amazing array of different brands in the bar from which to choose, and in our room there were 2 small complimentary bottles. Also we had a gift of selected items from the local soap maker - both nice touches from what felt like a caring hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially the receptionist who showed us our room and the duty manager who served us at dinner. Unfortunately our account was not accurate as one meal had been charged twice - this an area where a lot of good hotels fall down.
We will stay here again when we return to Skye.
