      Convenient to Kyle Plocton etc. evening meals of good standard. Lovely views over Loch at breakfast time.

      Room was small and of poor upkeep,although clean, poor outlook from window. Tv only worked on 3 channels. Mould in Bathroom This part of the hotel semed to be of a lower standard untiI I put the hall way heater on and the one in my room it was freezing, an over sight from the hotel staff. I expect a smaller single room but these rooms should be at a very low price. I noted further up the same coridoor the rooms were updated and not oppresive Noisy children running up and down hall way.

      Convenient location to visit Skye. Good breakfast.

      Expensive restaurant for the quality offered. Maintenance could be better (curtain rail broken in our room, no place to hang towels in bathroom,...). Overpriced compared to other accommodation used in same trip, even though we got a special offer. Wi-fi not available throughout the hotel, only in a corridor area.

      The staff was very friendly, the service was great and the food was excellent, as for the evening meals as for breakfast. In 4 months in Scotland, I did not have a better salmon, shrimps and scrambled eggs than in Balmacara.

      Very nice staff, very clean, excellent meals. The scrambled egg is the most fantastic I have ever eaten and every meal was fantastic. The Chef is excellent!!!

      TV was ridiculous as we could not get BBC 1 only 5 stations available and one of these was ITV Birmingham, this meant we had no Scottish News which seemed silly as we were in the Scottish Highlands.

      The hotel receptionist was very accommodating when we arrived and asked to change our room to one with a terrace. The weather was lovely for October and the views were spectacular so we fancied sitting out on the decking with a bottle of wine. All the staff were very friendly, particularly the receptionist who booked us in and the food was lovely.

      The shower head kept falling off when you turned the shower on and the bed wasn't very comfortable although the room was lovely. We were in room 35.

      The hotel was comfortable and the room was spacious and very clean.

      Last orders for dinner was at 8.30. Staff were a bit stretched at the time we arrived.

      The room was quite large and the view from the windows were great. The bed was a little hard, but overall comfortable. We chose to eat in the pub next door, rather than the restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was good. The hotel was very easy to find and parking accessible.

      The wifi was only available in one public area of the hotel.

      Great location with nice room and lovely view. Breakfast was excellent. We also had an evening meal at the hotel, in the pub, which was tasty and generous portions. There is also a dining room with an a la carte menu, which we did not try.
