'Met all expectations. Excellent location, the rooms are large and comfortable. The bed is second to none. My wife and I both slept like we have not slept in a long time on the bed. Could use a vanity light over the sink. Water did splash out of the shower onto the bathroom floor. We prefer not to have to rely on the floor mat or having to wipe it up with our towel.'

Stunning B&B

'We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Canowindra, the house is very stylish, yet has a warm atmosphere. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bath room a girl's dream! The breakfast which was served was very tasty. We highly recommend this place which is away from the busy streets if Portree in a very calm area.'

It was perfekt!
5 stars 5

'Wir haben uns sehr auf 'Canowindra' gefreut und haben dem entsprechend auch sehr viel erwartet. Was wir vorfanden hat aber tatsächlich alles übertroffen! Die Zimmer sind ein absoluter Traum und so wahrscheinlich in keinem Hotel zu finden. Angefangen bei der enormen Größe der Zimmer, den riesigen und bequemen Betten, der liebevollen Dekor und den unbeschreiblich schönen Badezimmern... alles war perfekt und wirkliche persönlich und anheimelnd. Man hat schon beim Betreten der Zimmer gemerkt, wie viel Mühe sich die Gastgeber bei der Gestaltung der Zimmer gegeben haben. Auch das 'Wohnzimmer' der Gäste war sehr gemütlich und lud dazu ein, zu verweilen. Georgien und Rick haben sich fantastisch gekümmert und jeden Morgen ein Frühstück gezaubert, was eines gleichen sucht. Danke für die wunderbare Zeit und die Tipps zur Isle of Skye, die uns ein unglaubliches Naturerlebnis ermöglicht haben!!!'

5 stars 5

'This was our entire group's first visit to Skye, and we were all very pleased with the accommodations at Canowindra. The rooms (and the shared common spaces) were all very comfortable and beautifully finished. Unlike other conversion-style B&B's, this house seemed purpose-built and fitted out with spacious bed and bath rooms. In our opinion, it was the best of both worlds - all the modern conveniences you'd expect from a hotel, but with the personal touch of a host/staying in a home. Location was just a few minutes south of Portree by car, making it relatively easy to access most parts of the island while still being a very peaceful and almost remote-feeling. Would definitely recommend a stay at this B&B if the price point is within your budget.'

Fabulous
5 stars 5

'Canowindra is absolutely fabulous! It is a purpose built brand new B&B 2 miles out of Portree. Magnificent well-appointed rooms with lots of space and an enormous bed with memory foam mattress, extremely comfortable. Beautiful modern décor throughout. A lovely guest lounge with fire, perfect for the somewhat chilly Skye weather. The breakfasts were excellent and the hosts very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend Canowindra as a superb place to stay.'

'A lovely warm welcome by Georgie & Rick into their very pretty B&B set in the heart of Skye with views over the woodland and surrounding mountains. We had a large bedroom with an interior to the highest of standards experienced. Breakfast was gorgeous, particularly the Scottish black pudding. Absolutely loved out time in Skye and would gladly recommend Canowindra. With love Sarah & Brian x'

Scotland's best find
5 stars 5

'We were simply amazed at how wonderful this B&B turned out. At first we had some reservations as it was not in the heart of Portree but when directed to the house some two kilometers from the town centre we discovers this wonderful place . Our young hosts Georgia and Rick were most welcoming. The house is brand new having been completed in March 2013 . It has all the mod cons and more. They have done a superb job in fitting out the place with nothing left to query. The breakfast was first class and it is to be highly recommended.'

'I am so happy we found this place! It's my favorite B&B in 2-week long holiday in Ireland, Scotland, and England. It's brand new, clean, and modernly designed. Rooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable (I also slept in the most comfy bed here!). It's in a quiet area with only a few minutes drive to Portree. Hosts are very friendly and obviously take pride in their home. I highly, highly recommend this spot!'
