Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We had a fantastic stay, with an excellent welcome; dinner was as good as we’d hoped.’ At ‘the back of beyond’ – ‘which is, of course, part of its charm’ – Shirley and Eddie Spear’s low-built, whitewashed restaurant-with-rooms overlooks Loch Dunvegan. Much has changed since the Spears opened their doors in 1985, but a constant has been their passion for Scottish produce and tradition. Head chef Scott Davies sources everything possible locally to create dishes with a Nordic accent – halibut, duck, carrot, mussels, lamb, dulse, parsnip, ewe’s cheese – each dish bespeaking confidence in exceptional raw materials. Eat well, then sleep over in ‘superb, crisply furnished’, loch-facing bedrooms, each with patio doors leading to a garden with seating. At breakfast, the buffet of the past has been dispensed with; wake, now, to a three-course affair with home-baked cinnamon buns, seasonal fruit compotes, and your choice of ham and haddie omelette, Mallaig peat-smoked salmon, Lochalsh haggis or eggs from local crofts. Magical Dunvegan Castle is across the water. (Susan Willmington)

Guest comments

'We had a wonderful stay in the Rooms over By which are very civilised. Beautiful hot shower, warm bathroom. Excellent service throughout, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Breakfast offers a wide choice. A telescope is provided for viewing wildlife. The food and wine were delicious. The wine waiter was well-informed. It is expensive but the whole experience well worth the visit and the distance covered. ' - JM - July, 2016
'A fantastic stay. The room was superb and crisply furnished, with a view over the loch, and its own external access. We got an excellent welcome from the staff. Dinner was as good as we had hoped. Breakfast a bit average but the view is a great compensations. It is at the back of beyond, which is part of its charm. ' - Susan Wilmington - July, 2015
