Great location for access to Portree facilities and for exploring Skye. All staff were excellent particularly Linda on reception. Good covid procedures in place. Excellent breakfast and dinner reviewed seperately for the restaurant. Quite expensive but worth it.

We stayed at this hotel as the Lady Marmalade was shut and we were very pleasantly surprised.

Rooms are lovely and cosy and nice touches such as coffee machine and shortbread topped up daily, lovely toiletries, robes and slippers. The room was also immaculate with a very comfortable bed.

The breakfast is outstanding. You're first given a beautifully presented continental breakfast and then you have a choice of a full Scottish/veggie Scottish or such things as porridge or eggs benedict.

We would like to draw particular attention to one member of staff (Matthius) who we found to be extremely helpful, professional and always very pleasant. He is a credit to the hotel.

We will definitely stay here again.

First class. We got the quadruple room. It was split level. Room was immaculate with slippers and gowns. Bathroom products lovely & locally made from highland soap factory. Meal in the restaurant was good quality and reasonably priced. Staff were extra helpful and friendly. Excellent location in the town centre looking over the harbour.

We stayed at the Bosville in August 2020.

We booked a Premium Double, which was a mistake because the front facing room we were in was noisy, not the least from rubbish collections and a very early Co-op delivery (the Co-op was opposite our bedroom window). Bosville's website claims that the Premium Doubles look out across Portree and the harbour, but this description stretches reality a little, at least as far as our room was concerned.

However, the bed was comfortable and the en suite, with bath, spacious. But why such minuscule bedside tables is beyond comprehension! And why such inadequate lighting...?

Reception and checking-in was somewhat disorganised, although the staff were welcoming and friendly. Restaurant staff were also very friendly and welcoming (we had not only breakfast, but dinner too).

The food was not outstanding, but was acceptable. Breakfast service seemed disorganised; e.g. we ordered extra toast but either the order was forgotten or the server was distracted by something else. Eventually, following a reminder, the toast arrived, but too late to enjoy with the cooked food. Dinner was also acceptable, but, again, nothing to get the taste buds buzzing! The Bosville is not a place for quality, fine dining. Drinks are over-priced, almost to the point of greed.

As for ambience the Bosville lacks character. It is impersonal and cold, partly the result of some architect's or interior designer's obsession with military grey. With the exception of prints by Ron Lawson (which have genuine artistic merit) and a number of interesting historic photographs of Skye, the decor lacks any connection with Skye, its landscape, heritage or history. Inexplicably, open fires have been removed, probably on the whim of the owners and their architects and/or interior designers. This cold, impersonal approach to hotel interiors seems to be sadly gaining ground. What this type of approach to interior design does is take away whatever uniqueness and relevance to the location the hotel might have had before its conversion into a 'modern' hotel (whatever 'modern' means when it comes to design, etc).

Even the dining room lacks that the ambient warmth that was once typical of Scottish hotels, inns and lodges. With the exception of the Lawson prints and the old photographs, the gimmicky props that adorn some of the walls are exactly what they are; gimmicky and fake, with no attempt to make them look genuine (such props are also to be found in the bedrooms). The use of such props is more akin to some cheap soap, and fools no one with a discerning eye.

Maybe the approach to interior design as evident in the Bosville reflects the lowest common denominator, but it does little to make guests feel they are somewhere special, even though they're in a country that in itself is already very special.

Based on our experience, we would not bring overseas family and friends to the Bosville, because one aspect they want is 'a taste of Scotland'. Real Scotland. The Bosville does not deliver, even within this abstract concept.
