Review of The Ferry Inn
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 29, 2024
We stayed here for two nights over Easter weekend.

The hotel (inn), bar and restaurant are run by The Morrison family, Gordon, Shona, Hamish, Anna and the cutest little westie terrier, Mack - as laid back and friendly as they come sat “on the bar” or by HIS log fire.

We were apparently their first hotel guests of 2024, and were warmly welcomed by Gordon who helped us in with our bags and showed us to our delightful room, overlooking Uig Bay and its pier.

Tremendous views and a 10 minute walk from the front door took you to the idyllic Rha waterfalls.

Everywhere smelt wonderful. Our bay view room and ensuite, the resident’s lounge, bar and restaurant are all fastidiously clean.

The entire property has been really professionally curated by Shona. Noble Isle toiletries in the bathrooms, lovely artworks throughout, and plenty of little touches that made all the difference to our stay and were very much appreciated. Including the Easter tree and the chocolate Easter bunnies by our bedside. All conjuring up the “coorie” (cosy or Hygge) feel we suspect they were aiming for and have pulled off with some aplomb.

We enjoyed dinner here on our first night which was fantastic. Great quality home cooked and locally sourced produce (thanks Hamish) - a real treat. Simply delicious and well worth a visit even if you are not staying overnight. Anna was a consummate professional and attended to our every need, including organising transport in advance of our arrival.

Nothing was ever too much trouble for any of the family. All delivered willingly and always with a smile.

The bar is well stocked (thanks Gordon) and there is a good selection of local brews, spirits and a great selection of very affordable wines given their quality. Gordon is an excellent host. Full of repartee and bonhomie and he can make a mean cocktail. A Damson Negroni in particular😋

Breakfast (served between 8am and 9am) was delicious (see photo) all perfectly prepared cooked and presented by Gordon. Mack was having a lie-in!

If we were to be really critical (balanced) the ensuite shower would benefit from having a hand-held shower in addition to the rain shower head and whilst we appreciate many of their guests will be up-and-at-em types, keen for an early start, we prefer a later start when on holiday and a later breakfast would have suited us better.

All this said, we were made to feel like friends, and would be back in a flash if they’ll have us.

The best Easter we’ve ever had!

Thank you The Morrisons.

Outstanding. Not one element of our stay was less than 10/10. We can’t recommend it enough. It’s obvious to us that this family have stayed in a lot of places and made notes. They’ve nailed it………. Unlike me with the breakfast menu 🤪 X

Do Class and Solitude go together? They do here! This small Family run establishment is out on its own. The rooms are beautiful but it’s the extra touches around the place that make it special the family really care and make every effort to look after you without being intrusive. The owner likes you to eat at least one night with them and my word you should. We ate on our first night and the food was superb and the highlight of our two week tour of Highlands and Islands as well as the service, top drawer. Breakfasts are just put together with so much care but what a start to the day. Anyone visiting Skye really must stay here. You won’t regret it.

Room tip: All rooms are beautiful

Very close to the ferry quay, this is a wonderful Inn to stay and eat.

Gordon and his family are really good at what they do. The rooms are spectacular, beautifully designed and supremely comfortable. The rooms have lots of materials (such as OS maps) to help you enjoy every moment you spend on Skye.

When it comes to breakfast and dinner, the ingredients are fresh and well cooked, presented, and the seasoning is spot on.

The Ferry Inn is exceptional and highly recommended, with only 4 rooms book in advance.

We stayed twice already at The Ferry Inn and enjoyed our stays tremendously. Gordon, his family & the staff were always very welcoming, accommodated all wishes and provided travel tips.
We highly recommend breakfast as well as dinner (have a drink at the bar first!).
