Toravaig House Hotel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Sleat
Reviewed 22 May 2011

Stayed one night at Toravaig in the Eriskay room. The room itself was lovely, nicely decorated with a comfortable sleigh bed, table and chairs, desk and modern bathroom with lovely powerful shower. What the website doesn't make obvious though is that the hotel is set right on the main road (although to be fair even a main road in Skye is pretty empty) and the view from first floor Eriskay room is out onto the carpark and road (i think the website called it a 'side' view). For one night it was fine but would definitely try and get a room with a view if you can as the views from the other sides of the hotel are stunning.

We didn't eat in the hotel as ate down the road at Kinloch Lodge (absolutely fantastic) although the breakfast was lovely and there was also a nice room with comfy sofas and a real fire to relax in. The hotel is a short drive from the main ferry, so handy if like us you're only visiting for a weekend.

All the staff were really helpful and when we checked out were given a wee Skye soap and postcards of Toravaig which was a lovely touch.

Would definitely recommend. The hotel is set in lovely grounds with stunning views. Next time I'd try and get a room with a view though.

One last point my boyfriend found the lack of soundproofing a problem (although didn't notice too much myself) - when the room above (?) had their shower on the extractor fan was quite loud in our room. Also Eriskay is right by the stairs on the first floor so you hear everyone go by. Again though I didn't find this any worse than a lot of other hotels have stayed in and wouldn't let this put you off although if you can would get a room with a view and away from the stairs

Room Tip: Definitely go for sea or hill view

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of April. The weather was fantastic, making it hard to fault Skye or the hotel.

The rooms at the Toravaig are decent quality, although a little small. They are only let down by the relatively small size of the TV's, which would be a simple thing to change.

The food in the restaurant, and at breakfast, is excellent, although a little pricey. They are also happy to serve the food as room service, which helps after a long day of driving.

The service at the hotel is also excellent, with very friendly and helpful staff.

The location is good, near the ferry port, but it's a shame the hotel looks so close to a fairly busy road. Having said that, from my room there was no road noise at all.

great rooms, lovely service and the food is seriously good. Amazing breakfasts each morning - we had the full dinner and it was superb. 5 star food in a very relaxed setting so we didn't feel bad about having no fancy clothes- only jeans and t-shirts.

We went for my husband's 50th birthday. The room was lovely & had everything we needed, even free WIFI. The staff were superb, especially David, who was friendly, helpful & fun! The food was fabulous & the chef even made a specially birthday cake for my other half. I would recommend this hotel, it is not cheap but for a superb relaxing break, it cannot be beaten. We have travelled all over the world & this must rate as one of the best places we have eaten ever! The weather was bad, with serious gales & rain for most of the 4 days we were on Skye but hopefully, we will be returning soon for another excellent relaxing time.
