The Duisdale is set in beautiful grounds, which are incredibly pretty and quiet. It is also just 5 minutes' walk to a secluded pebble beach - great for a paddle and admiring the fabulous views. Overall, the hotel is very comfortable, clean, nicely furnished, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The location is ideal for looking around the southern part of Skye and the Sleat peninsula, where we found some great walks and beaches. If you like sailing, the hotel owners offer day trips around Skye on their private yacht.
However, having stayed in plenty of 4 and 5 star hotels, I would say that it is a little over-priced at £230 per night B&B. The tv in our top-floor room was tiny and barely worked (only a couple of channels and a non-functioning remote control) and the wifi only worked in the hotel lounge (no reception in the bedrooms or on the patio). You should also be aware that mobile phone coverage is very limited here. I would have expected better IT facilities in a modern 4* hotel.
The food was very good. The relaxed menu in the Charter Room is much better value than the "fine dining" menu, which was double the price, but probably not twice as good. There were a couple of charges that I thought were a bit cheeky; a £7.50 fee for 30 minutes in the outdoor hot-tub, and surcharges on 2 of the 3 main course choices on the £45 fine dining menu. I would have preferred these items to be included. Overall, you can expect to pay upwards of £330 per night per couple if you have dinner here.
