My husband and I spent one night in this lovely bed and breakfast on the Isle of Skye. The hosts Arlene and John were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. I highly recommend Balmeanach House for those...More

You were both so welcome. Are you home now with Dalia? I'm sure she was very pleased to see you back! I'm glad we helped make you some good memories. I'm sure Bailey is convinced we only have visitors come here to give home new...More

John is a welcoming and helpful host even driving us to a nearby restaurant. However, as another reviewer mentioned, it is less welcoming to be asked to take your shoes off (on cold tiles) as soon as you arrive and with nowhere to sit to...More

Thank you for your review, Donna. I'm slightly perplexed as to why you feel £44.00 for a night's stay in en suite accommodation, with a full breakfast included is expensive? There was a folding chair in the porch, which, unfortunately, you obviously didn't notice. I...More

Thank you for your lovely review, Inga. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself here. Getting up early to go to Neist point is a great idea, as it's the only time, during the Summer months, you will get the peace to truly appreciate it. Good for...More

On arrival and before we had even crossed the threshold we were asked to remove our 'clean' shoes...the carpet in the hall up to our room was pretty poor and hardly worthy of such a cheeky request. The jam at breakfast was riven with mould...More

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but if you'd had to clean sheeps' ! From the stairs, you would understand the request. The same with the radiator request. I am more than happy to dry things for my guests. You weren't my favourite guests of...More
