    Friendly staff, facilities minimal.

    Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful anytime we had a question, or were looking for info on local sites. Location was pretty cool, being in a small village in scenic locale.

    Rooms are bare minimum. Bed, shower, tv. Property says internet access, but found out not in rooms. You must sit in the lobby and compete with the 50 others off the tourist bus for bandwidth on the lone router. Facilities were run down. Carpet worn down, toilet paper holder missing, patchwork and repairs visibly evident. No air conditioning, no fans to check out. This place wouldn't be too bad if they put some money into bringing it out of the 70's and into the current century. Owners seem to accept mediocrity in what they offer. So much potential here! Need Internet access and fans in every room. Need to do some serious updating on facilities......new carpet, bathroom furnishings, etc. If you need a bed and shower for the night, and nothing more, this place will work for ya.

    The beautiful Isle of Skye and the friendly, helpful staff that tried to make the best of the situation. They were clearly embarassed about the state of the hotel. The owner should be ashamed of himself.

    We couldn't open our room because the lock was worn out. After an instruction, we finally managed to open it. The room was really tired and dirty. The linoleum in the bathroom was completely rotten and the shelf above the sink had broken off. The owner is clearly a Scotsman, because nothing broken is repaired. I found a woodlouse in the bathroom. After we got back from dinner, my wife found a second one crawling around on the bed. She wanted to leave immediately, but it was too late to find another place to stay, so she put her pants into her socks and was lying in bed with her clothes on and left the light on. At 4:30 AM the people of the room above us started walking around, which made an annoying squeaking noise that kept me awake.
