2/10 Poor

I wouldn't allow my dog to stay in this place. The owner doesn't know what a can of deodorant or bleach is.. Corridors are absolutely filthy, smelly, and in a serious need of a good thorough clean and redecorate. Rooms are extremely dated, smell fusty and like a sauna. 1 bathroom (toilet /shower) to share between 8 rooms.. extremely dated and question how often this is cleaned. Worse than faulty towers. AVOID!

Good and bad
We used the accomodation for an overnight stop over for which it was OK. The property kneeds a makeover to bring it up to what travelers expect in the 2022. Continental breakfast in your room, no TV. WIFI signal is good. Car park is on a slope and rooms are on the first floor up a stair case difficult with luggage.

Cosy rooms, friendly host, great location
Cosy rooms, nice scenery, 10 minute walk from the town centre. Our host Julian was very friendly and made our stay there very nice. Breakfast was great and right on time. Would highly recommend for a place to rest before exploring the island.

A tired property in need of a good clean.
The property is easy to find and Jurriaan was very helpful and communicated well. The property was easy to find. We drove to the town centre as it was a little far for us to walk from the property. Jurriaan produced an excellent video showing us how to operate things in the room. A continental breakfast was provided to the room. I note that this property has good reviews and it was on the basis of these that we booked to stay here. Having stayed at various different properties during this current trip, I can only compare to my experience in general. I found this property to be tired and in real need of an uplift. A good clean would be a start. I stripped the bed on my departure and was a bit shocked at the state of the duvet. The pillows were not the best and did not have protectors. Behind the bed was really dusty. Surprising given the seemingly strong adherence to Covid measures. This could be a great property and Jurriaan is very keen to please but I would certainly not return to it unless there were changes.

Skye basic accommodation
This place was adequate for our stay in Skye. It was a bit further out of the main town of Portree than we had imagined but still close enough to walk in. A tv in the room would have been a benefit. Breakfast was good, a tray to our room door with cereal, toast and fruit. Of note the drive up to front door is extremely steep.

Nice Good Value Stay
Julian was great. Very friendly. Lovely house. Very clean and a very nice room. Excellent value for money. A nice stroll to the town centre. Next to the main bus stop.
