Our review

Skye is a truly magical place. The largest of the Inner Hebrides, it boasts wild, scenic natural beauty of its land and seascapes, beloved by artists and photographers. Film makers too with numerous Hollywood blockbusters having been made here amongst the bleak moorland, majestic Cuillin mountain peaks, surreal cliffs, ancient castles and stunning coastline.  This is a destination for outdoor adventure sports, a relaxing romantic retreat and for foodies to experience fine cuisine and whisky.

Portree is the largest town, the capital of Skye, which draws thousands of international visitors travelling by car, campervan, motorbike, mountain bike, bus and coach tours. Located in the central Square, beside the bus station, Portree Hotel is a warm and welcoming, like an urban “Inn,” with a lively bar, restaurant and tea room. Following recent refurbishment, there are 24 stylishly designed, comfortable rooms (single, double, family), with all guest facilities the traveller may require. While contemporary in décor, the ambience is distinctly traditional Scottish from the tartan tweed fabrics to Stag head artwork.

The Antlers Bar and Grill has a menu of hearty, homely dishes such as Cullen Skink (smoked haddock and potato broth), mussels, venison, pork belly, fish and chips, haggis, steaks and burgers. Children are well catered for too. The West Highland bar with a wood burning stove, is a busy, buzzing place to sample a Talisker or other fine malt whiskies, Skye Ales, a Misty Isle gin or cocktail. On several nights a week, live music is performed here which draws a crowd of hotel guests, tourists and pub regulars alike.

Breakfast offers a continental buffet as well as a wide range of hot dishes – full Scottish fry up, porridge, scrambled egg with smoked salmon and omelettes, for a hearty start to the day.

As the Portree Hotel as your base for a few days, you can explore all around the island on day trips to Dunvegan Castle, the Fairy Glen, Quiraing, Neist Point Lighthouse and other prime set jetting sites for such movies as Macbeth, BGF, Stardust, Made of Honour, Snow White, King Arthur et al, where Skye is a major star in these dramatic adventures in fantasy worlds. Climb “The Old Man of Storr” where scenes from Prometheus and The Wicker Man were filmed, so much better to see it in real life than on screen. The iconic peaks of the Cuillin were the backdrop to Highlander so get on your hiking boots and follow in Sean Connery’s footsteps.

As previous award winners for Bar Dining and Town Hotel, Portree Hotel is renowned for its hospitality as a popular hub for the local community as well as visitors from around the world. If you want to be in the centre of tourism on the Isle of Skye, staying at the Portree Hotel will give you an authentic experience.
