We picked Toravaig House for a 5 night stay on Skye and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location was handy from the bridge and the ferry, and a good base for seeing the island (though the further reaches of it are a good day trip there and back!).
The hotel has 2 principal assets in our view. The first one is Rosemary who is the best receptionist we've ever met. Her recommendations for places to go were all spot on and she took care of everything we asked for during our stay - nothing was too much trouble or couldn't be fixed. The second is the owners' yacht Solus a Chiain. The day spent going out to Rhum and back under cobalt blue skies and featuring a superb on board lunch was truly memorable and we'd recommend the option of the day on the yacht to anyone staying at Toravaig House.
Apart from this the restaurant furnished us a couple of good dinners and 5 very good breakfasts. Nice to see breakfast cooked to order - always a big plus.
We picked a sea view room when we booked, and were a bit disappointed to find it had no bath. In fairness we were offered the chance to switch to one with a bath, but not so good a sea view, so we stuck with the first one. Hard to see how the building migh accommodate internal renovation to make either bathroom larger, but as a note to other guests, if you want a bath, specify it.
As to price (since it's commented on in other reviews) it's not the cheapest place, but we felt we got good value for high season. The tariff is about as high as it should go, though, and leaves no room for anything going awry.
