Staff were friendly, quite chatty and polite. The rooms were okay, not the best. The bed was strangely short, so much so my 5'7" self had to bend my knees to fit and they rolled with ease. The bathroom was okay but the door didn't shut properly. There is no secondary lock in the room so could easily be opened from the outside if someone had a key. The walls were thin, The breakfast was mediocre. Scrambled eggs was the worst I've ever had but everything else was cooked well. Continental options were limited and I can't speak to the dinner options. The hallways are awful. The building appears to be a series of smaller ones attached with dodgy fire escapes. The windy corridors were also uneven so would be impossible to navigate for anyone with mobility problems. One fire escape absolutely STANK of cigarettes, even hours after we had first noticed it. The smell never subsided until the morning after (seemly as a result of staff proping open the fire doors that should be kept closed). One room was described as "River view". I guess you could call it that....though you did need to squint and hang halfway out the window to see it. We were told its dog friendly, but they wouldn't allow dogs into most sections if the hotel. In fairness the staff did accommodate by setting up a breakfast table in a different room but we still felt somewhat ostracised as this seems the first time a dog has stayed there. There is one saving grace to this place. The pub next door, Sausy Mary. It's maybe 300m away but it's amazing. Great selection of Gin's despite being a country pub. Very dog friendly, any dog that enters the building will be cuddled and treated better than anyone else in the place (which is almost impossible).

Cosy, friendly hotel with wonderful staff. Enjoy a lovely breakfast then go on to touring Skye. Kyleakin is the best base for a holiday. As well as great food in the Kings there is the King Haakon pub & Castle Moil restaurant.

From the online booking site it looks beautifully quaint. That's it! Receptionist on arrival very chatty and helpful. On checking into room, shower room/ toilet very smelly towel rail had been leaking and wall stained, cistern continually running and no bins. Dinner. Food bland an cold when I told waitress she asked if I wanted it heated up (gobsmacked). I said it spaghetti it needs changing. Didn't do anything for the flavour. Beds comfy enough. Breakfast a disaster asked for scrambled egg and sausage and beans got scrambled egg and bacon and beans. Beans not fresh. When I challenge the waitress 10mins later I got one sausage on a plate to go with my now cold scrambled eggs. My wife asked for butter for the toast which was brought as a handful ( not on a plate) And put on the table. To crown it all coffee was old and cold. £140 for an atrocious one night stay. My advice avoid this place if you want to enjoy beautiful Skye
