Good Hotel Guide Review

Take in ‘fine views’ over the Sound of Sleat from Ken Gunn and Anne Gracie’s ‘friendly’ small hotel. Better yet, take to the high seas with the owners, who offer guests trips aboard their yacht to the islands of Rhum and Eigg. Back on land, settle in by the wood fire in the ‘lovely’ lounge (a glass of malt whisky in hand, if it suits) before heading into the smart restaurant for dinner. Here, new chef Fin Wood’s modern menus use plenty of super-local produce – just-landed lobsters and langoustines, lamb and venison from island crofts, home-grown salads and herbs. Come bedtime, lay your head in one of the contemporary, ‘nicely decorated’ bedrooms overlooking the sound or the surrounding hills. Individually styled, each room is warm and restful, with a ‘good’ shower in a compact bathroom; the best bedroom (of a ‘generous’ size) has a bay window with a sea view. Good options at breakfast: Skye smoked salmon, Mallaig kippers, French toast and berries. Duisdale House nearby (see Shortlist) is under the same ownership. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'The hotel is quiet and we had a view of sheep on the hills. Our bathroom was tiny. The staff is small, friendly and attentive but there seemed to be a rotating caste of employees that we saw only once. Only one person did we see more than once and she was delightful. The food was good but not as good as the menu would suggest and service was slightly erratic. We thought the menu more pretentious than substantive. There was no music and the dining room was quiet for conversations although eavesdropping was too easy. ' - VS - August, 2017
'The staff, though friendly, needed an intensive training day. ' - GC - May, 2017
'Had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Got married on the hotel's yacht, and the owners Ken and Anne along with Neil made our day and the rest of our stay a most memorable experience. The food was amazing and the accommodation first class. ' - Andrew and Julie Appleyard - June, 2016
