Stayed for two nights. Hotel is tired and needs an upgrade but was clean and quiet. The location was the prime reason for staying at this hotel, stunning little village overlooking the skye bridge. You can only connect to the wifi in the reception area which was disappointing.

Overall a very basic hotel. Located near the Skye bridge which is the gateqay to Isle of Skye. Hotel is tidy, however in need of a good refurbishment of their rooms. I was sleeping on the floor rather than the bed because the bed was sinking in. Pretty crowded with guests too, probably because of its location. Not many amenities...

The hotel rooms look as though they are going to fall down. Bedroom floors are on a slant and lots of evidence of subsidence. Walls are paper thin and could hear everything that was being said next door. Only plus point was the views from the bedroom windows

This is probably the worst hotel I have experienced and it had to be in my home country of Scotland. The whole hotel is in a very tired state. The only positive was that the room was clean despite being very basic. The walls are paper thin with every sound being audible throughout day and night. The breakfast was extremely...

Whilst this is an old hotel, definitely in need of refurbishment, it is clean and neat. In our room the bathroom had been renovated some time back but was clean and functional. Better than some others. The meals were basic, but breakfast was included in the price. The amount of busses stopping here would render it unlikely to be refurbished...

This is a very, very, very old hotel which needs a total refurbishment. I paid £100 for one night bed and breakfast and because of the state of it, my wife and I refused to stay in it. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

A terrible hotel!! Very tatty, threadbare carpets, fittings cheap, dated & need of urgent upgrade. Bed very uncomfortable with pillows which felt as if they had been stuffed with cardboard. Walls were very thin & we could hear everyone walking about on the squeaky floors. My sons room had a massive damp patch under the window & his shower tray...

I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. The reception staff I was met with each time were extremely unhelpful - if you do not want to work with public don't work on a hotel reception. Our hotel shower was not working so we reported this on the day but nothing was done about it. This hotel is far to...

I had to stay at this hotel as I traveled to the Isle of Skye during peek season and I left my reservations for the very last minute. The positive point about this hotel was its convenient location, as it is very close from the bridge to the mainland. I do not have any complaints about the staff. However, the...
