This place lives and excels with its fabulous staff! We were welcomed by manageress Silke who took excellent care of each of her guests. Travel advice, pre dinner drinks, recommendations: she knows, shares and cares. Fabulous hostess! The rooms are well equipped, but relatively small. Cosy and comfortable, in a nice location.
A gem in Skye

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience during our stay. The staff (Zilka & Carlo) were excellent and they ensured our stay was satisfactory. The meal at the Duisdale was memorable and although there is a shuttle service, that’s to your advantage if you want to have a drink. The only criticism is for what it costs, the room we had had no view and it was very cramped

We spent three nights at Toravaig House Hotel while on Skye. The front-of-house staff there - particularly Neil and Silke - were all so friendly, helpful and obliging. The hotel has a warm and cosy lounge with an open fire. The hotel is well decorated with modern fittings, however, our room was a bit dated and the bathroom was tiny! There were a variety of options available for breakfast - we highly recommend the Full Scottish and the Pancakes. Overall, we had a lovely stay.
MOST OVERPRICED HOTEL in theIsle of Skye-that claims to be a boutique hotel but just a gloried B&B!

One night at Toravaig house hotel was certainly an experience , for the amount of money we paid per night it left us feeling we were being ripped off! Jamie booked it for it’s so called boutique and idyllic setting only to find the complete opposite. Our deal was £340 bed & breakfast plus dinner (3 course meal) in the hotel but upon checking in we were told dinner will be at a different hotel and we were ok with it at first but after a very poor dinner experience we were felt we are being coned. We pointed it out had they informed us that there is no dinner service we would have looked for an alternative accommodation.
Dinner wasn’t great service was very slow and we had to share a minibus with other people with one lady coughing and sneezing in transport and in the restaurant. The portions were minimal the lamb cutlet was bony & fatty there’s hardly any meat on it. We had two courses but we were charged for a dessert we didn’t have hence the total of £348.
The last straw was the bedside table falling apart and we had to do something. Thankfully we managed to find a more generous room for two nights for £137 per night with breakfast in Portree (The Royal Hotel) with proper loch views. We were baffled as to how they can justify the extortionate amount they charge with a poky room , the bathroom shower glass panel is inadequate causing flooding on the Lino floor, no bath mat and the bedside table falling apart. The bed is uncomfortable the mattress needs replacing and the pillows were lumpy.
The location is not how it’s described on their website hardly any garden it’s nowhere close to anything apart from the whiskey distillery. We left our tablet charger but they claim they didn’t have it. In conclusion we can not recommend this hotel , it is not a boutique hotel it’s a below par B&B. You’re better off staying in Portree where there’s plenty of places to eat from and plenty to see and
Lovely hotel with the best staff

The hotel was lovely and the views from our window were stunning. Neil was a real gem and was so helpful with booking breakfast and making sure we were all organised for dinner at their sister hotel. This was the only downside as we had to leave the hotel, but the shuttle was complimentary and the driver was great. I really enjoyed breakfast as there was plenty of choice and the service was excellent. The staff really made the hotel and I would not hesitate to go back.
