Although the rooms seem fancy and decorated they are of very bad quality. Tha bathromms floor if falling apart, noises are coming from the walls non stop, and access to the rooms is very uncomfortable. The service was very wierd, breakfest service was trerrible. Food was OK. Location is far from all intresting sites on Skye.

Rather an odd experience. The building and decor were nice enough, with the feel of a grand country house. The room was fine, perhaps a bit cramped, but quiet. However the hotel was cold and unwelcoming. The sitting rooms and bar were cold. The bar was unstaffed and guests were asked to serve themselves and write down their orders on...

Ok so this review is a mixed bag, The staff where lovely the breakfast good quality. And from what I could see the main house looked ok. Our room was in the lodge and at a price of £102 for the night I was expecting something more than we got. The decor in the room was very tired. The bed...

We were not in the main house, as booked. We were greeted by a transparent bag of dog poo left by the front door of the annexe- a message from a previous disgruntled guest? The room was pleasant but we discovered that the bed had not been made properly, the bottom sheet did not cover the bare mattress. The bar...

We booked this hotel through last minute.com as we were struggling to find accommodation on Skye. We were told that the only room available was the honeymoon suite which we took. We thought it was rather expensive but hoped it would be worth it. It wasn't. We arrived 10 minutes before check in time on a glorious afternoon but were...

Really not like it appears in the photos. They placed us in the back "lodge" building and as soon as we walked in the mildew smell was disturbing. We asked for an alternate room but there was no option and the employee's response was like; "yeah it's just kind of like that back there". Also since it becomes cold in...

The room was expensive, it was in the Lodge area and it was musty and damp. The decor was dark and univiting. The ensuite was in need of an upgrade . The main hotel area was a mis match of styles . The staff at breakfast were friendly, breakfast just acceptable. This place needs a complete makeover, could be good

I recently spent two nights at the MacKinnon Country House Hotel in Kyleakin, Scotland, on the Isle of Skye. I was with 3 girlfriends, in 2 rooms. Of the dozen places we stayed, this one was the most expensive, and the most disappointing. It was very attractive as we approached, and the seasonal workers were very friendly. We were given...

This property needs some real changes but the sad thing is, they could be done quite easily. When we arrived it was early afternoon around 1:30pm and we had a reservation. We didn't really expect that our rooms would be ready, but there is always a chance. The cold, unfriendly greeting we received by a young woman should have been...

We found the guest house comfortable and pleasant. In addition to breakfast the restaurant provided meals. The food was very good, but I thought a little expensive. Checkin time of 4pm was a little unusual which did not inconvenience us, but I know would inconvenience others. I would stay here again. It had a comfortable lounge and bar to sit...
