This is a fabulous B & B in Portree with an excellent view of the harbor and colorful buildings below. Eddie was a gracious, friendly host during our stay. This B & B owns the adjoining restaurant, and we had our breakfast there in addition to a gourmet dinner one evening. Highly recommend a stay here and a dinner at...

Very nice bathroom with a good shower hit . Very good location, near the cooperative supermarket and restaurants . A very cute bench just in front of the hotel with view of lake. Best experience ever. Feel like home.

Thank you for taking time to write your review. We are very lucky to have the benches with 'picture postcard' views over the harbour. I am delighted you thought Coolin View felt like home and you enjoyed your experience with us.

Coolin guest house is ideally situated in Portree. Near to good restaurants and the harbour for boat trips and good food. Accommodation is small but clean and the staff are very hospitable. Breakfast next door was perfect.

I made the trip to Portree in the middle of March and stayed there for four nights in a single room. Had a very warm welcome and the room was really nice and very quiet. The breakfast was served in the neighbourhouse and was amazing!

Stayed for two nights. Everything was great. Amazing view from the window (room 9). Lovely interior from the entrance. Plus the outdoor seating that you get to see the portree habour and the sea. Make sure you takeaway or get a bottle of beer, take a seat. That's gonna be the best moment of your life.

Thank you for taking time to give us your feedback. We are very fortunate to be in such a glorious position giving views of the harbour and the mountain range beyond. There are very few outdoor seating areas with our views in Portree and it is a great asset for guests (& staff alike !!) Hopefully we will see you...

Front has fine views a very clean but small guest house. Skye is no good if you like to shop to drop, peace and quiet is the order, and walking for all ages in summer it's hectic so plan you're trip when the weather fine there is nowhere better.

Hi James thank you for taking time to write your review. As you correctly point out Skye is not a shoppers paradise !! In Portree we do however have lovely small craft shops selling local produce and garments made from Harris Tweed etc. Hopefully you will manage back to visit the island at some point in the future.

My husband and I were on a road trip around Skye and chose to stay in Portree thinking that it would be convenient to be in a centralised location. Coolin View Guest House provided all of that and more with a free car park right in front of the building! The view from our view was amazing and certainly great...

Stayed here for two nights with the girlfriend as we visited the Isle of Skye. Portree was a great sleeping point for the visit as it was a central location for hiking the Old Man of Storr, Quiraing. and the Faerie Glen. The hotel was centrally located in the town of Portree, walking distance from many restaurants and shops. Portree...
