Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Really great place to stay the house is very comfortable with everything you could need. Skye is a wonderful place to visit. June 2012.
  2. This is a fantastic cottage in a lovely part of the world. Portree is great and has all the amenities you need. The owners left loads of extras in the cottage which made us feel at home and well looked after right away. We would definitely go back as 1 week wasn’t long enough. April 2012.
  3. The Malt House is a perfect location for exploring the whole of the island of Skye. The goodies on arrival were are lovely surprise and the whole house was beautifully presented, well equipped and cosy. July 2011.
  4. An ideal location to explore Skye, and to enjoy the town of Portree in peace. Very comfortable well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Highly recommended. June 2011.
  5. The Malt House is a charming and comfortable house,very well equipped and homely. Short distances to the city, the supermarket and the shore. Nice garden with sitting-out furniture. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again. May 2011.
  6. The Malt House is in just about the perfect location in Portree. It’s in a quiet cul-de-sac, no passing traffic, has ample parking yet is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. The property itself is in ’upside down’ mode with the two bedrooms downstairs and the living quarters upstairs giving an added interest to the stay. There is a wide choice of restaurants one of the best values being the Isle Inn and we also enjoyed the Indian restaurant (although it doesn’t take credit/debit cards). There is a smallish Co-Op supermarket right in the middle of town with a much larger one on the outskirts. Excursionwise we would recommend the walk on the Old Man of Storr and the walk to the Neist Point lighthouse. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property or indeed returning to it. April 2011.
  7. Quite simply the best accommodation we have ever had. Everything was on hand and the key collection was great. It was a home from home, extremely comfortable and very clean. Thank you so much. March 2011.
  8. Very well equipped cottage and a great location for walking distance to Portree. April 2011.
  9. We had an excellent stay at the Malt House and would recommend it. It was very quiet and despite being semi-detached we heard absolutely no noise from the neighbours due to the thick stone walls. It is excellently positioned within walking distance to Portree port, cafes, shops and restaurants. Oct 2010.

  13. It was beautifully refurbished and very clean, well stocked with essentials and really peaceful. June 2010.

  15. Truely fantastic cottage in a great location! April 2010.
  16. Spacious, cosy, comfortable, over all perfect for a holiday in Skye. Jan 2010.
  17. The house was so comfortable, we can’t rate it high enough. It is better than home from home. It was in the perfect location with fabulous views and beautiful walks. Fully equipped kitchen. No one could possibly be disappointed with this house. Very clean and in excellent condition. The very welcome little touches i.e. wine, fruit etc and lovely owners and everything mentioned above made this an amazing holiday. P.S. we had excellent weather the whole week too!!! Nov 2009.
  18. Very well situated to walk into the town for good pubs and resturants. Oct 2009.
  19. Good facilities good location. Oct 2009.
