Exceptional Hospitality on Skye!!
Our group rented out most of the hotel for a wedding, so we obviously demanded a lot of attention and service. That being said the staff there was exceptional!! Most of the rooms are quaint and historical, unless you stay in the newer rooms that attach the to the main building, which are much more modern and have a boutique style feeling to them. The food we had was delicious, especially the chili coconut soup. Loved the variety of the small but VERY equipped bar off the lobby—I had the best elderflower gin and tonic of my life. Bartender Sara was phenomenal, as was Gertrud at the front desk! Their kindness and attention to service made my stay! Would recommend this hotel if looking for a well-run establishment when staying on the Isle of Skye.

Wedding hotel
We attended our friends wedding in this hotel. The hotel has been refurbished to a good standard and is set in a beautiful location with fantastic scenery. The staff all appeared friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean in the public areas. Overall, we had a very good time at the hotel and the food at the wedding was very nice. If you are looking for a traditional wedding venue with great views, choose this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful wedding reception
I had my wedding reception here in March 2017. The hotel is beautiful – the photographs really do not do it justice. As a wedding reception venue is was perfect. We had drinks and canapes in the lounge, which felt very cosy with the fireplace, but at the same time was spacious enough for our guests to mingle (we had just over 50 guests). We then moved to an adjoining private wood-panelled room for dinner. We were back in the lounge afterwards for cake cutting and teas/coffees. Later in the evening we moved to the conservatory (which has an adjoining bar) for a ceilidh. We organised the whole thing remotely and Neil was our main point of contact at the hotel. He made everything so easy – it was almost like having a wedding planner. We had helpful suggestions and took care of every detail to make sure the day went smoothly. It really took a lot of pressure off us in the run up to the wedding and we felt we were in good hands. We changed our mind about the wedding size and doubled the number of guests not long before the wedding – they were amazingly accommodating about this and really made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. They took delivery of the flowers, cake etc. and set everything up for us. On the day Neil even acted as a master of ceremony, announcing when it was time to move to the dining room, when the cake would be cut etc. They printed out little menus for us, and our guests could have a choice for every course. They really went above and beyond, and on the day the service was faultless – warm, cheerful and professional. We had looked at other hotels in this area (i.e. within driving distance of Eilean Donan Castle, where we had our wedding ceremony) and we are so glad that we chose the Skeabost!
