The Pink Guest House
Ranked #34 of 95 Portree B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We have just returned from a trip to the Isle of Sky during which we stayed at this excellent guest house. We were fortunate enough to be given a room at the front of the guest house which overlooked Portree harbor.

The hosts were excellent, in fact they moved their car to enable us to park on our arrival.

Our room was very large, had one double and three single beds in it, it was clean and fresh towels were left each day.

The breakfasts were very good with a nice choice, my partner asked for something not on the menu and it was no problem for them.

If I return to Sky this will be the place we will wish to stay.

Room Tip: A room at the front would give the best views for when you wake up in the morning.

We had 4 rooms in this B&B located at the harbour front. It was an uphill walk to go anywhere. There were traffic and pedestrian noises all night in the two rooms on the main floor with the entry directly from the road. The 3rd floor room was large enough only for a bed, there was no other furniture, no place to put our suitcases and we had to turn sideways to pass each other. We could hear every sound from the stairs, hall and room beside us.There was only a skylight that did not open so there was no relief from the heat. The room off of the breakfast area was the best, with the most space and only noisy when people started to arrive to eat in the morning. The breakfast was good - typical Scottish B&B menu. The hosts were friendly and helpful. In our 10 days in the country this was the most expensive location and our least favorite.

Room Tip: Do not take a room on the top floor - too hot! Rooms off the road are noisy and one has a sloped low...

This B & B is in a good location right on the harbor. The young couple who run the place are lovely and very helpful. If you are lucky enough to get a harbor view, that is great. I don't understand the comments on the size of the rooms. They are surely adequate, especially compared with the size of other rooms in which I've stayed. I got a room on the top floor in there back -- the room backs onto a lush green hill. I thought this was marvelous -- lovely birdsong and quiet (no harbor noise) -- but, the room was too close to the greenery on the side of the hill and insects of all sorts got into the room (including a very large and ugly beetle ... and there were a number of spiders in the sink). I could not have a midge-less night unless the window was closed, which in June was a disappointment as it got a bit stuffy overnight. The walls are a bit thin (I could hear the neighbor's TV and then snoring into the night). Breakfast is adequate -- arrangement of dried cereals, yogurt and dried fruits and a lovely cooked breakfast. Next time, I might try one of the B & B's up the hill.

Room Tip: High floor on the front of the building.

Very good location. We got a room which was having very good view from its windows.
The rooms are not much specious. There are few rooms at backside which does not have any view at all. I will suggest to go there but make sure you get the rooms at front side of the hotel.

This B&B was comfortable and clean, had a nice breakfast and all the required amenities. However, the room was very small. The only space to open my luggage was on the bed. There was barely enough room to walk around the bed. This does not appear to be the case for all the rooms; I saw one other room that friends were staying in. It was very large and comfortable. Be sure to request a larger room if space is an issue for you.

Enjoyed our 2 nights here in May 2014. Room was clean, thankfully on ground level which made carting baggage easier. Breakfast was tasty and good portions. Husband and wife team very helpful and friendly. I would only say that the room needs more "surfaces", as does the bathroom...as there wasn't place to put toiletries and so on. A second bedside table would be a good idea. Otherwise, a great place, very convenient and parking was easy at the harbour end. Thanks for a great stay...would recommend this bright pink venue and wouldn't hesitate to use again when back on Skye.

In short I can say its a very nice place to stay.
