Very clean and wide room, extraordinary Scottish breakfast, and Jurriaan is always ready to help and give tips about what to do on Skye. Recommended. Obviously you need a car to visit the island and Portree.

Spent 3 nights here on a photographic trip. A steep slope up to the House and then a flight of stairs to Reception, décor distinctly reminding me of a Youth Hostel. The owner greeted us and made us feel welcome, offering helpful suggestions about the area. Our room required sharing a bathroom, (not ideal), but we coped. The in room... More

Juliann was extremely helpful in pointing out some of the places of interest, some interesting debates which was good, great breakfast but rooms a bit tired, badly in need of upgrading, all in all a pleasant stay.

Pleasant owner but house and garden need some tlc as its looking a little tired and dated. Bedding and linen very clean but shower room needs a deep clean, and really an upgrade to plain white suite rather than rocking the 70s look it has. Breakfast fine. Only ideal if you are fairly mobile as its situated up a fairly... More

A great place to stay when visiting Isle of Skye. The owner is very friendly and happy to recommend places to visit. The rooms and bathroom are very clean and breakfast is very good. The common area has great views to relax in the evenings.

Stayed here a few years ago and it was a lovely little guest house so booked when I decided to have a break in Portree. Got shown our room, an attic room, small cramped and smelled of damp which didn't help my asthma. Decor dated, and personally speaking it needed a good clean. The breakfast was basic, no frills and... More

A good place to stay, when visiting the Isle of Skye. Very good location with enough parking places. The room was clean, but a little bit tight. The house owner is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good.

Loved visiting Givendale in Portree as stayed there last week. The first thing that struck us was the amazing views! Also the owner Julian was very friendly and easy going, he was very helpful in all his recommendations for what to see on the island and any help we required in the b&b. We stayed in the top room in... More

We had a great experience at Givendale. Our room was clean, very comfortable and had fantastic views out to the Bay. The owner is friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble for him. He is very knowledgeable about walks and routes to take to get the best from visiting Skye. We will definitely return here and would recommend it... More

I signed up for this B&B on Expedia and it has been a great location. Easy to get around from here. Breakfast was lovely. Room is very nice with a comfortable bed and a sink in the room.
