MacKinnon Country House Hotel
Ranked #11 of 11 Kyleakin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 February 2016

The single room was adequate although the toilet wasn't flushed on my arrival. No hot water for shower or shave in the morning not acceptable for a three star accommodation. Restaurant was closed and Bar facilities not offered .Good location lucky there was eating out nearby. Breakfast was fine although limited offerings. Got a cheap deal so non plussed.Not recommended for a chill out holiday due to lack of facilities.

Room Tip: Ask for one with running hot water

We arrived at 6pm to a locked door and not a sole in sight. The house itself was really cold, waited ages on room heating up and was not what we expected in cleanliness. On the plus side the hot water worked, the beds were comfortable and at breakfast they were very obliging and certainly more chatty than the previous night. Sorry but wouldn't go back as all in all was rather disappointed as not as well kept and homely as advertised.

Nice room, good size, comfortable bed, pleasant staff, great breakfast, economical price.

But little heating in the hotel, and none in my room, which was a disappointment when I stayed there for a few days in the first half of January, 2016, as the outside temperature (and maybe the inside temperature) was constantly about zero celsius, especially as I had been told when I booked the room that the hotel was heated.

In the end, I left a day early.

Save yourself a pile of frustration and don't stay here. No hot water, cobwebs on all the light fixtures, 5 channels of TV (if you get stuck inside). Could be a great place to stay with some upkeep and actual staff that gave a damn.

I felt the hotel as a whole was very rundown. It did not feel like a country house hotel at all. Staff seemed very disinterested, like they couldn't really be bothered being there. The wifi code didn't work for us. Also my friend went down to ask for a bottle opener - the lady was really unimpressed and kind of grunted as she got up to get it. Breakfast took a long time in the morning too. Wont be recommending this place to anyone.
