Fair to good
We enjoyed our stay and the house is very cute. Thankful of all appliances available. Maybe remove sky as it isn’t paid for so a lot of programmes don’t work, t.v is great as it’s a smart tv so still plenty of choice to watch what you like. Living room seating isn’t very comfortable and the bed isn’t very comfortable might be best if there is a good mattress protector on it?? The dog next door is annoying as it barks a hell of a lot. Heating ... I think maybe a fan for the log burner would help circulate heat in the living room as it’s very hard to heat that room, and is the room that you mostly be in. These however are not complaints (apart from the dog) they are just factors i feel will help improve the stay. The house itself is very lovely and we did enjoy our time there. The caretaker was a very nice man and was lovely to meet him...February 2020

The Old Post Office, Bernisdale.
An absolutely brilliant, cosy, comfortable cottage on Skye! All the latest mod-cons yet still keeping the original feel of a traditional cottage with the thick, whitewashed walls and drying pulley. Only a short 15 minute drive north of Portree. Extremely comfortable beds and living area - we were sad to leave! Iain and family, Edinburgh.July 2020

Great accommodation in beautiful Skye
We would recommend the old post office cottage for a visit to Skye. Great location within 15mins drive to Portree for all amenities, and a great central location to explore the island. The cottage was very cosy and comfortable for my husband, 7 year old son and I. It was clean with everything we needed. The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely wee touch and very much enjoyed! Thank you for a lovely stay :-)July 2020

From the moment I booked, we had great communication from Skye letting , letting us know when we could arrive, which was earlier than the original time, the directions were spot on. In the cottage their is a little wood burner, which we had on at night's, plenty sticks to keep it going and it was so cosy The cottage was so spotlessly clean, which I think is very important at this time, lovely fresh towels and the bedding is professionally cleaned, new carpets and everything you could possibly need in the house There is a nice wooden table and chairs out the back, which we managed to use the first couple of days before the rain started Extremely enjoyable few days, will definitely be backOctober 2020

Great location, but a little basic for the price.
First , the positives. The location is great in the middle of the island, not far from most of the places you’d want to visit. The management company was also helpful and communicative before our stay. The house itself is OK, if a little small and basic in some areas. It was clean and reasonably well equipped, and with quick WiFi. But to be honest it is pretty cramped for four adults - might be better for a couple and two kids. The mattresses could also do with an upgrade at this price level. Also, and I know there’s not much the owners can do about this, but we were woken up every morning by the neighbour’s dog barking at 6/6.30, which was a little irritating on holiday.May 2021

Lovely cottage in Bernsidale
The Old Post Office was a really nice cottage in Bernisdale - about 5 miles north of Portree. It was well furnished, with a very comfortable double bed and an excellent shower. It had all the amenities we needed for our stay and everything was nice & clean. The cottage also has a second twin bedded room so could accommodate four people. There was a bottle of wine on arrival which was very much appreciated after a long day driving & sightseeing plus it was my birthday so that went down very well indeed and was a very nice touch. We can't recommend the cottage enough and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there!September 2021

Or stay at the Old Post Office
This is one of our favorite places to stay ever! The Old Post Office is very small but oh so cozy. We ended up with 5 of us (the late addition of my daughter!) so it was tight but we felt very comfortable. The kitchen is well supplied, the bathroom clean and the beds comfortable. We especially loved the little cast iron fireplace, call the Hobbit! Very relaxing and very centrally located for exploring Skye!June 2022
