We had had a bad travel day getting onto the Isle of Skye because the ferries were shut down due to high winds. When we finally found our hotel, there was no one at reception and I had to go searching for someone to help us. He got us our room key but didn't offer to help us up the stairs with our bags.
The room was fine with a big poster bed, but the bathroom had PLASTIC glass ups in plastic wrap - righto out of Motel 6. a nice towel heater, but they only turned on the boiler if you asked and then apparently turned it off soon thereafter.
The breakfasts (included) were pretty good, if yo could find a server.
I had a new shirt that seemed to be giving me a rash, so asked them to wash it (it was fleece, so no special testament required - I just wanted it washed in hot water). The desk clerk said that there would be no charge, but when our bill came at the end they charged us 20Lbs for it. Outrageous!!!
If you're staying on Skye - stay up around Portree or you'll do what we had to do every day which was drive to or thru Portree to get to the spots we wanted to visit.
