Julian was wonderful and a very helpful host. The room was upstairs and a little small. Julian was great at carrying bags upstairs.

Room and bedding could stand some freshening up
We stayed in Room #5 which seemed to be a converted attic space. The sloping ceiling was a challenge as we are both tall. The bedding and towels were just worn out and could really use replacing. I will say the host was very nice and tried to be helpful with directing his guests to their day's sightseeing destinations. He also was a skillful cook with very nice breakfasts in the morning.

Loved staying there. The owner is actually Dutch from the Netherlands. He was very friendly and enjoyed talking to the guests. Portree is a 5 minute car drive. The Givendale is centrally located to most sights on Isle of Skye.

Boutique Hotel with Great Restaurant and Patio
The rooms were spacious and clean, and had a very nice Scottish old world charm. While we only stayed on night we enjoyed the outdoor patio/bar and the easy proximity to nearby restaurants. It was also a 15-20 minute walk to the old town area.

More of a Hostel than a Hotel
This is VERY MUCH a hostel-style property with the added breakfast treatment, rather than a hotel. Jurrian, the host, was a great guy and very nice, and his breakfast was lovely. There was the option of a full breakfast or a continental style, and both were homemade and great. We stayed in the converted attic room which has two beds and an en-suite bathroom and open-able skylights. The room was smallish and the beds new and quite comfortable, which is absolutely lovely for folks looking to be super busy out in Skye all day and just wanted to pass out afterward. However, the upstairs hallway was quite cold, the bathroom in our room was freezing as well, the TV in the lounge area had no signal (no functionality unless you wanted to watch a VHS or DVD) and the couches in the lounge were old and really worn out. For the simple function of a comfortable bed at night and a nice breakfast it was perfect - but for anything beyond that (TV, extra comfort or updated furnishings) was not available.

Very homey stay! Comfortable, quiet room. Had a shared family room with a nice view. Easy walk to town and lots of eating places. Up-beat town. Owner was very helpful and enjoyed talking with him. Breakfast was excellent.

The B & B needs some TLC. The room we were in was decorated in a mid-60's era which was fine, but it was looking a bit shabby - as was the rest of the place. The food left a bit to be desired - the eggs weren't cooked properly. The host was wonderful and informative. The Wi-Fi was a joke.
