    Leaking from the bathroom caused all the downstairs sockets to trip out on the circuit board. Whilst we would have caused some water to get on the bathroom floor, this really needs to be resolved for the future as I understand it has happened in the past and just letting it dry out seems a bit dangerous.

    Fabulous location overlooking the estuary, easy parking and access to the town. Grate place to stay in Skye, would recommend it to others. Nice greetings on the board on arrival and lovely facilities.

    Parking was an issue. You had to be lucky to get something close to the apartment down by the water. There was a bit of a musty smell in the apartment. Noticeable even in our clothing after leaving.

    Coffee and extras were wonderful. Decor was excellent, very warm to walk into. Location, fabulous. Portree itself is a wonderful place to visit. The apartment couldn't be any more central. If you're looking for walking access to everything, this is a great spot. Accessing the place was really easy. Great instructions from the hosts.

    It is up a steep set of stairs. Being harborside, the parking on the street was not always available, but a free lot is up the hill about a block away.

    This spacious apartment was so comfortable for our 4 generation family! The wonderful living room was fantastic. Isle of Skye is beautiful and our three days there were enhanced by these accommodations.

    A few things needed fixing like the blinds/curtains, one of the kitchen cupboard doors, bedroom door could not be closed because latch was not working properly. Front door lock was also temperamental. However in the scheme of things these were a minor inconvenience and overall this apartment is fabulous.

    Absolutely amazing location right on the quay in Portree...does it get any better? The hosts had left all the information needed as well as a starter pack with some breakfast cereal, tea, coffee, juice, biscuits etc. Much appreciated. The Isle of Skye is a fantastic place to visit and this apartment is a great place to stay and explore. Wish we had stayed longer.

    The entrance had some rubbish and new rolls of carpet and underlay which made it difficult to carry bags up the stairway. I'm sure this was a one off situation with renovations occurring somewhere close by. Very challenging to locate apartment with no signage only on door after climbing stairs of building. The remote controls didn't work( batteries corroded) and instructions for audio visual were out of date. Blind in guest bedroom fell off when opening in morning.

    Just beautiful and clean inside apartment with lovely decor. Such a lovely location with beautiful views by the dockyard. It was a pleasure to stay and regret not booking for a longer period. Special mention in regards to thoughtful food basket. Which included high end food products which were very much appreciated. Thank you for a delightful stay.

    Pillows were so thin that they were non existent. Had very sore shoulders and back the next morning. The flat was nice and rustic but we felt that it wasn't very well looked after ie. walls, dining chair was broken etc. Breakfast was average. The ready made porridge pots were not very good. The orange juice added a nice touch.

    Easy to find. Good instructions to access the property and keys. Big flat and couch was very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. All and all, it was a good stay and had a nice view of the pier.

    Key only locked from outside so if locked door to leave other family members like 16 year old daughter -locked in. so door had to be open whilst inside. Or locked in which is dangerous. Also did not want door left unlocked whilst daughter reading on New Years Eve. So did not leave her alone.I am sure Portree is very safe but this was a bit of a issue.

    This was the most expensive place we stayed but was worth it. Parking can be tricky if you don't get there at the right time to find an empty spot.

    I loved this place, my favorite of all in Scotland. There are four chairs that sit by two windows overlooking the harbor. I would just sit with my cup of tea and look out the window at the boats and fishermen. Furnishings and decor obviously new so besides being aesthetically appealing, it was also most comfortable. Bathrooms were intriguing. One large one with a tub but the en suite bathroom is a phenomenal example of effective space utilization. Loved it

    The wifi does not work. The beds are quite uncomfortable. The oven works only intermittently. The main shower is strangely positioned over an unusually high bath. Water spills everywhere unless you surround yourself in a dark curtain (it is just a normal cloth curtain rather than a shower curtain), which leaves you showering in the dark. Looks nice in the photos but it is definitely style over function!
