Quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The whole building is tired. Needs real monetary investment. It’s glory days are well and truly over. Which is a tragedy because the building was so lovely once. Thread bare tartan carpets throughout. Uninterested staff.

Response from Bob I, Manager at Kings Arms Hotel
Responded 24 Jan. 2019
HI Im afraid this review is not for the Kings Arms Hotel as we close in October each year and it says you stayed in December of 2017 .Our whole hotel has been recently recarpeted in 2017 and 2018 all corridors and bedrooms. It also says pack snacks for breakfast but not sure what this refers too!!

Room looked to have been flooded at some time. Floor was so warped it threw you off balance. Mold in windows. Big gap in floor between tub and toilet. Filled with mold. Felt like toilet was going to fall down into room below. Wallpaper peeling off walls. No phone in room. No

This hotel is terrible. The rooms are old and dirty. The staff are unfriendly and the breakfast, which was the best part of the stay was average. The bar doesn’t open until 6pm and the draught beer is flat and horrible.

This place is terrible! We booked this place and at no time were we warned that they would have a piano accordion player playing very bad music directly below our room at full ball. When I say bad I mean really bad! We were tired and he played what sounded like the same song

can our dog stay here with us
I would check with the hotel. I do know that dogs are loved in that area, though. You might want to check local b&bs.

What is the charge for dinner
Can't advise, sorry. We ate our evening meal at a pub along the street.

Tutte le camere hanno il bagno?
Ciao, io non ho visto le altre camere, ma presumo di si, perché non c'erano bagni lungo i corridoi, inoltre al momento della prenotazione non mi è stata data nessuna opzione. buon divertimento, l'isola di Skye è bellissima!
