We had a lovely lunch here and were really pleased we spotted the sign and turned off. Beautiful waterside location, with the ability to sit out under a huge canopy overlooking the water and enjoying stunning views or in the cosy traditional bar. We opted for eating inside. Service was good from a very busy lady who never stopped for a minute but despite being so busy was welcoming and pleasant. The food was excellent - piping hot and really tasty.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was so nice. Called last minute and they were happy to accommodate us. The room was spacious for a travel cot to be up. Staff couldn’t of been more helpful helping to get either milk for my 1 year old daughters bedtime drink or washing out bottles/cutlery. The highchair was immaculate (bonus!!) Iv discovered a lot of grubby highchairs whilst eating out so this was so refreshing. Food was lovely. Hotel is situated on a beautiful setting!

Me and my wife stopped here for 2 nights at the beginning of July as part of a mini moon trip around the Scottish highlands/isle of Skye. The hotel is in a lovely location, nice and quiet next to a small harbour with plenty of charm. We found the check in to be easy and straight forward with a quick walk around the site to show us around. Another nice touch was the miniature bottle of whiskey given to try which is produced on site, one regret was I meant to buy a bottle but never got around to it but I have found it online so I will be ordering a bottle! On the first night we received a complementary bottle of Prosecco as the hotel knew we were on our honeymoon which we thought was really thoughtful. We also had our dog in tow but this wasn’t a issue at all, all the staff seemed to love dogs and she even received a sausage or two every morning for breakfast which went down well. All in no faults whatever with with this hotel, if we ever return to Skye we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Had a lovely 2 week stay here. Staff were friendly and attentive. The hotel is set in a beautiful secluded bay with wonderful views. very peaceful quiet setting but within easy reach of Broadford and other parts of the island. The breakfasts were lovely with a wide choice of items. The staff were happy to make something off the menu for awkward guests like me who do not eat cooked breakfasts in any form Thank you to all the staff for a lovely holiday.
