trip advisor reviews for mint croft Luxury Bed and Breakfast on The Isle of Skye

"Unique. Totally exceptional."

The spirit and tranquility of the island are reflected in the Suites,
blending in with the landscape around.

THE STONE STORE SUITE

Some say this was originally the old township hospital. The oldest building on Mint Croft. A spacious, light filled two-storey bedroom apartment with large picture windows and stunning views out to the sea cliffs and the beach beyond. A comfortable Super kingsize bed can be made up into two single beds. The Suite is decorated in a gentle palette of wool, local sheepskin and gorgeous linens, inspired by the shimmering light on Loch Snizort. A roomy, relaxing sitting space has a generous sofa and a comfortable reading chair. The Fired Earth bathroom has a lovely, big bath with a rain drench shower over.


Suite Rate: £185 per room per night for 2 people sharing for Bed & Breakfast and afternoon tea. 2018 Suite Rate.


THE BLACKHOUSE SUITE

An updated, traditional Hebridean Blackhouse with a turf roof. The walls are nearly one metre thick and make this room very cosy. Floor to ceiling windows let in lots of light and look out to Loch Snizort and onwards to the islands of Harris and Lewis. The Suite has a comfortable Super kingsize bed. The Fired Earth bathroom has a huge, freestanding stone bath with a separate walk-in, rain drench shower. A comfortable sitting area has a relaxing sofa and reading chair. The room is decorated with Harris Tweed and beautiful linens inspired by the colours of the flowers and plants on the surrounding land.
