Sitting in the sun-drenched bay window of this hotel sipping morning coffee, listening to the birds singing, gazing out across the inlet, it would be hard to find anywhere more perfect! The staff are so friendly and welcoming-they are a credit to the Isle of Skye. Coffee is excellent, complete with shortbread. Sad we are only here for half an...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The location was excellent and the views stunning. We had a ground floor room in the annex. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. All the facilities were there but what let it down was that it was a cold spell and the heating was not adequate. The room was...

Stayed there for two nights in the hotel itself, it was absolutely fantastic. We sampled the food in the bar on the first night, which was great and on the second night we ate in the restaurant where the food was exceptional. The staff were extremely friendly and would sit and chat with you. The views were amazing. Without question...

We arrived a bit late at the hotel after a difficult (but, looking back on it, pretty entertaining!) car drive from Dundee. We were made to feel instantly welcome and looked after. And that theme continued for our whole stay. The hotel, the accommodation and the food are all top notch but what really distinguishes this hotel from others are...

Come to Hotel Eilean Iarmain on an Itison deal and enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very comfortable (we were in an annex across the road) and the staff really welcoming. The chap behind the bar (sorry, didn't get his name) was great. He managed to induce us to sample a few of the whiskies. Seemed like a good idea...
