This hotel is definitely five star luxury! We enjoyed the whole experience. Everything about the hotel exceeded expectation. The views over the bay and the Cullin hills in the background were breath taking. Our room over looked the side garden and fountain and was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. We ate in the restaurant. The food was excellent as was the service. Breakfast over looking the bay was excellent too.We were very impressed with the staff who spoke so highly about the hotel and it was obvious they enjoyed working there. The lady who greeted us on reception was delightful too. We were so sorry to have to leave this beautiful hotel and continue our tour.

Lovely place with some of the best views of Portree Harbour. Set atop a hill a 10 minute walk from Portree. Excellent service, large well managed garden which is great for drinks. Dining area is spacious and has sea views. Lounge area is comfy and has 2 seats with harbour views. Nice wines served in proper glasses.

We spent three amazing nights at the beautiful Cullin Hills Hotel, it was definitely the highlight of our two weeks in Scotland. From check-in to check-out it was pure 5-star treatment. The hotel is situated on a hill with views of Portree and the beautiful harbor. We sat outside on the lawn enjoying cocktails and watching the boats come in and out every afternoon/evening. It was a beautiful, relaxing, pampered experience that we will never forget. The food in the restaurant was fabulous, the cocktails were creative and the room was extremely comfortable. Their Covid procedures made us feel safe without feeling anxious, a balance that we did not find at any of our other hotels during our stay in Scotland. I cannot recommend this amazing hotel enough if you are going to the beautiful Isle of Skye!

My wife and I stayed for two nights. The views from the dining room were fabulous looking across the bay to the Cuillin Hills. Service was excellent and they managed to overcome a shortage of gas for the kitchen with minimal impact on their guests. Good sized rooms.

10/10 dinner here on Thursday night, lovely views as well. Great friendly service and the food was delicious and fresh! Would highly recommend. The Venison was out of this world. The restaurant itself was also spacious, elegant and Covid friendly.
