Good Hotel Guide Review

Neil Hope and Lesley Unwin’s ‘excellent and unpretentious’ B&B shines out on the Isle of Skye. Designed by RIBA award-winning architects, the modern building has ‘wonderful’ views of Broadford Bay and the Cuillin mountains from every room – look out for seabirds and local wildlife (binoculars supplied). Guests enter the B&B via a galvanised footbridge to the lounge and dining areas on the upper floor. Bright and ‘very clean’, these shared spaces have a cathedral ceiling and solid oak flooring with underfloor heating; the book-lined lounge has plump red sofas and a log-burning stove. Admire the landscape from the ‘good-sized, well-equipped’, tartan-accented bedrooms on the floor below; each leads to larch decking through sliding doors. The ‘friendly’ hosts provide plenty of ‘helpful information’ on local walks, beachcombing and kayaking. In the morning, Neil Hope cooks a ‘delicious’ breakfast, taken communally. Choose from home-made bread and muffins, yogurt, locally smoked haddock, organic sausages and Achmore cheeses. An ‘excellent’, ‘good-value’ evening meal can be arranged in advance; restaurants are within walking distance.

'Excellent, unpretentious B&B that lives fully up to the description in thee GHG. Plus points: very clean, and 'dogs not allowed'; wonderful views through the huge plate-glass windows in both lounge and bedrooms; friendly, helpful owner; comfortable beds in good-sized and well-equipped bedrooms; good breakfasts and excellent evening meal (good value for £25).Disadvantages: shared table for breakfast could be unwelcome (but for us it was a bonus due to interesting other guests); owner not able to prepare evening meal every day ' - - April, 2013
