A nice enough stay, the place is very clean, that's a plus.
Pros : lovely view from window in our room, breakfast very good, filling. Always eaten with other 2 guests of b&b. Good advice on local sites. Short drive to center of town, would be a long walk, esp in bad weather.
Was a little taken aback by the number of rules set, breakfast is only for an hour, starting at 730, you must be out of your room from 10-4p, and checkout is promptly at 10. As a result, not very relaxing. Thin walls, can hear what goes on in the entire house. Dated decor, rooms have not been updated in a long time, though they are maintained nicely.
Would advise booking more in advance at another place, in order to secure a better stay.
Very nice and helpful owners. Great sea-view from our room!
Breakfast was good. Room was reasonably sized and very clean. Location is not too far away from Portree Center.
The owners were also helpful and knowledgeable when we planned ahead our trip.
Would give 5 star rating but a small drawback was the water pressure in the shower. My girlfriend refrained from washing her hair because even a normal shower is rather cumbersome with that little water pressure. The bathroom itself was good and clean. Carpets on the floor appears strange but was no issue since all was very clean.
Nevertheless we'd come here again any time. Highly recoemmended.
Needless to say that Skye should be high on any Scottland traveller's list!
The Moores were hosts with' restaurant suggestions and local site suggestions. The room was extremely comfortable, well decorated with a spectacular view.The full Scottish breakfast was very good. And it was a short walk to the center of Portree where there were many restaurants to choose from.
We stayed at the Heronfield for 2 nights while on the Isle of Skye. The Heronfield sits high above the bay, with beautiful views. There are 2 rooms - one faces front with a large picture window overlooking the water. The other faces the rear gardens - also a nice view. The rear facing room has a larger bathroom if that's important to you. Our room and bathroom were perfectly clean and well appointed. The toiletries (shower gel, soap, shampoo and body lotion) were appreciated.
Our hosts, Tim & Christine, were wonderfully welcoming and friendly. Tim greeted us when we arrived and Christine was on hand in the mornings with suggestions and a delicious breakfast.
One complaint only: the water pressure in our shower was painfully low!
The Heronfield is a good value and a delightful place to stay while on Skye.
We had a wonderful stay at the house and a great view of the bay from our room. The breakfast was wonderful as well. Hosts were so friendly and pleasnat and provided us great information so we could have a awesome visit of Skye and Portree. Thank you again !!
