    Reception was very welcoming and helpful. We eventually booked via booking because it turned out to be much more expensive via the hotel itself.

    Staff went for a smoke while serving food, that was absolutely unprofessional. No staff left as they went together. Breakfast was average at best.

    The location of the Royal Hotel was very good, across from the harbor and right on the main streets of Portree. It was a good central location for our explorations on the Isle of Skye, heading out in four different directions each day. The room was cleaned daily and they did a good job. The continental breakfast was enjoyable although we weren't sure if ordering from the hot menu was included. Dinner in the restaurant was very good.

    Our room was sufficient but thought the website mentioned that the hotel had recently been updated. We didn't see indications of that. We also didn't realize there were no elevators, so our room in the 200's was actually up 3 flights of stairs. Our added "view" cost ended up giving us a small window that had a chair sitting in front of it. True, we could see the harbor through the window, but only limited. The bathroom was roomy enough however the shower had no place to put your shampoo or soap and it appeared there had once been a liquid soap dispenser in the shower but it was broken off and just a bracket remained. The heated towel rack was nice, but on the opposite side of the sink, with nowhere near the shower to hang a towel or cloth. I asked about getting a washcloth and the desk clerk told me they could provide one "at an added cost". Never heard that before. Overall the hotel was adequate but not quite what we were expecting. There was a fee parking lot across the street, but limited hours, so had to park a few blocks away in the long term parking, or be up by 8 am to move the car.

    They had a pretty decent spread for breakfast. Fresh fruit, croissants, jams were plentiful and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Whilst I tried the Highlander Full Breakfast the first day, I had to give up as it was too heavy (for day 2). Yet, I found their dining establishment satisfactory and helpful for anyone ready to explore the beautiful Isle of Skye!

    Rooms could've been a tad bit larger but this was fairly alright. I still enjoyed my stay.

    Good location but room overlooked by opposite cafe and scaffolding all around frontage which we were not advised of, though we asked for a room with a view. Staff were good and even said to take a few things from the breakfast buffet when leaving early. Messages taken by staff from family members in our absence, Good cooked breakfast quickly served.

    The dining menu was very unexciting and even an offer of 10% off if we dined there did not tempt us.
