Spectacular Day
We had our wedding here last Saturday and it was the most beautiful and spectacular day from start to finish and we felt like royalty. All the staff went above and beyond. Walking down that staircase to my ceremony and all the staff were stood lined up it was so lovely. The three course meal was delicious along with all the tasty wines that accompanied it, all of our family and friends were very happy. Truly grateful for the most magical day. On behalf of me and my husband thank you!

Highly recommended
We booked Skeabost for our wedding reception. The personnel, the food, the location, the dining room/bar/deck all surpassed our expectations. I highly recommend using Skeabost for any event you may have!

Everyone had been so kind, friendly and accomodating
We stayed at the Skeabost from 15th-17th July for our wedding and although I will say I think the rooms are , I cannot fault anything during our stay. We stayed in room 5 (the largest in the hotel) which was perfect for me and my bridal party getting ready on the wedding morning, and the room was beautiful. There were a good variety of breakfast options in the morning and the staff serving us were very friendly. Our wedding took place in the conservatory which is typically used as the evening restaurant. From the ceremony, to the wedding breakfast, to the reception, everything was how I imagined it to be. The meal was fantastic and we had many guests telling us how much they enjoyed it. The location of the hotel is ideal as it is tucked away in a quiet area, but only less than 10 minutes from Portree town centre. I could go on and on about everything I loved about our stay but most importantly I wanted to acknowledge the staff. They are an absolute credit to the hotel! Everyone had been so kind, friendly and accomodating to us, ensuring we had the best stay possible. I especially wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to Victoria in housekeeping (who I think was just as excited about the wedding as we were!). She really went above and beyond making sure we had everything we needed. She was fantastic with our 2½ year old daughter and our parents had also mentioned to us how brilliant they thought she was. Another favourite among the guests was Nicola! To anyone considering a wedding in Skye I would highly recommend the Skeabost. I would also ask you to consider Lynn from Skye Beauty Salon (hair), Alanna McNiven (make up), Donald from Loch Duich plants (florist), Laura from Creatures of Habit cakery (cake), Penny Hardie (photographer) and Meg Gillies (registrar). Together they helped create the most beautiful wedding and I am grateful to each and every one of them. The new Mr & Mrs Edgar x

Wedding Venue
We stayed at Skeabost House on our wedding day. We got married up a mountain and then had the reception at the hotel. There was 8 of us in total and we had a lovely time. We had one of the superior rooms which included a wonderful view out over the loch. It had a very comfortable 4 poster bed and a bathroom bigger than my own living room. The whole of the hotel was very clean and tidy and clearly well looked after. All of the staff were friendly and very helpful. There really wasn't anything they would not do to make our stay all the more special. We had a mix-up with the person making our wedding cake (not the hotel) and the hotel pastry chef knocked a cake up for myself and my wife, much to our surprise. It really was a lovely touch from the staff. The only reason I've not given the hotel the full 5 stars is that was a minor communication break-down where an overseas member of our family had arranged for some champagne to be given to us and it took a little bit of investigation work. That said, the staff went to every effort to get to the bottom of it and we soon got the champagne. The other reason is that there were some flowers and chocolate and champagne upon arrival included in our package that we never received. It's only a small thing and truth be told, it did not detract from our stay.
