A work colleague booked this to save money and unfortunately it was disappointing. The host was very nice but that only painted over the cracks. Small shower (nigh on impossible to get into) and rooms that have seen little maintenance and look dated. Investment does not appear on their list and with a little investment this could be a good...

The shower would cycle from cold to hot every 30 sec. Just bring your own tubes and MasterMix, and you could run PCR while cleaning yourself (Note: gel run not included). Life, Agilent and Illumina take note! The host was friendly, Wifi perfect, the building was a charming Victorian, but accoutrements were dated. There was parking, but it was a...

Nothing wrong to say about this hostel. Good location close to the river and the city center, clean and specious room, friendly stuff. I spent there one night and my general impression is positive. In fact there was nothing special about this place but still nothing to complaint, it was simply fine.

The host seemed helpful enough but that was where the positive part of this review ends. The bed was rock hard and the pillows not much better. We had the Guinness factory right outside our window which, although not operating all night, didn't make for the most enjoyable back ground noise. The curtains were paper thin and moldy and did...

We are exploring Ireland and stumbled across Portree. The building is huge. We were warmly greeted my Patricia and quickly. He checked in. There is a Hostel in the very bottom part and ensuite rooms on the upper level. They are really charming rooms with very high ceilings. Remi ds me of an old huge Victorian home. Can't believe it...

Christopher and Patricia the owners of the hotel were quite accommodating and the accommodations were clean, everything worked and the rate was quite reasonable, plus it is in a vintage building and there is a fully equipped kitchen for the use of guests. There is also a hostel section for even better prices and a nice garden with a friendly...

The hostel part of the guest house most definitely satisfied over and above my expectations and also the expectations of the entire group. I was constantly be complimented for organising such ideal accomodation, all members of the group were well pleased.

We stayed in this guest house some time ago and it was the worst experience of my life. I will never go back and will make sure none of my friends ever stay there ! By looking at the website, it looks like a nice place, cheap enough and well located. I couldn't have been more disappointed. The place was...

Hi, We stayed at Portree for a week, excellent Value for Money, The Hotel itself was clean and tidy, the bedroom was nicely decorated and the breakfast was superb every day! My daughter used the shared computer and enjoyed the free hot chocolate whenever she could! Will be staying here again without a doubt!

Second time staying at the Portree b&b and very satisfied with the service. Staff are very friendly & the breakfast is great. Only niggle was that the mattress in the bed is a bit old so you can feel the springs but otherwise no complaints.
