"and a little bit about us"
Neil & Rosemary welcome you to their home, and together with their small team will endeavour to ensure that your stay is relaxing and enjoyable.
Neil and Rosemary Colquhoun acquired Greshornish House in 2004. Before moving to Skye, their home had been on the Ardnamurchan peninsula not far from where Rosemary was brought up. They have four sons, three daughters-in-law, six grandchildren - and a chocolate Labrador!
Since then, facilities continue to be enhanced, consistent with the listed status of the property. Guest bedrooms and bathrooms have been upgraded and general refurbishment is on-going - as is the work being done to reclaim the walled garden after half a century and more of neglect! Among other plaudits Greshornish House is rated by Visit Scotland as four star fully licensed guest accommodation, is a member of The Scotch Beef Club, has been listed in Michelin since 2007, has an award for "Excellence" from Scotland the Best, was specially commended as "Good for the Soul" in the Hotel Review Scotland and a finalist in the Most Excellent Waterside Hotel category in the Condé Nast Johansens 26th Annual Awards for Excellence. Greshornish House has also been awarded a Gold Plate, Breakfast Rosette and Red Hospitality Commendation by Hotel Review Scotland and commended to all lovers of good food by The Scottish Food Guide...
If you would like to stay with us please contact us
The following information may be helpful:
In the first instance, go to the contact us page, submit the form and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Alternatively e-mail us from the link opposite, or call us on the telephone. (Please don't be put off if you find you are unlucky enough to reach our answerphone!)
After we receive your booking request, we will respond by e-mail, letter or telephone, offering you whatever rooms are available for the appropriate time. It will then only remain for you to confirm your reservation by making a deposit of £50 - £100. Most major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Switch) are accepted, or you may be happier to send a cheque. We in turn will notify you of your booking reference after the deposit has been received. Unfortunately, we cannot hold rooms without a deposit, particularly at busy times of year. Please note that under our cancellation policy all deposits are non-refundable.
Under the terms of our standard cancellation policy, cancellation within 14 days of the booked day of arrival will result in the payment of the full value of the booking becoming immediately due. In the event of cancellation more than 14 days before the booked arrival day, the liability will be limited to the value of the deposit already taken (or to £50 per person if no such deposit has been taken). Deposits are always non-refundable and will be deemed to constitute part of any cancellation charge. (Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for Standard Bookings for full details.) More important, we very much hope that you will not need to cancel!
We strongly recommend that our guests take out travel insurance to cover unavoidable cancellations.
Important: Your booking will be considered cancelled from 8.00pm on the date of your arrival unless we have been contacted to inform us of your late arrival.
Check-in is between 4.00pm and 6.00pm. If for any reason you find that you are likely to arrive before 4.00pm or after 6.30pm, please let us know.
The time of your arrival is particularly important to us; we like to be out and about in the afternoons and you might find the door locked if you arrive unexpectedly early.
On the day of departure, rooms should be vacated by 10.30am. If this is likely to cause difficulty, please let us know.
Signal strength in this area of Skye is very patchy, and there are many places in which mobile phones do not work. There is reception for some networks in the garden and grounds, but not in the house itself.
We have now established wi-fi throughout most of the house so guests are able to access broadband to some extent in their rooms. As we are some distance from the BT exchange, broadband speed is limited and we do ask that guests should be reasonable in their use of the internet since excessive downloading will affect other users. Please respect the convention that the Drawing Room should not be used as an 'internet cafe'!
Breakfast is normally served between 8.30 and 9.30 am daily. If breakfast is required earlier than this, for example to fit in with ferry timings, a continental breakfast can easily be arranged. Please inform Reception before 9.00 pm the evening before.
Coffee and tea are available throughout the day on request at reception.
Lunch: Soup and sandwiches or a light lunch is available daily in the Conservatory by prior arrangement.
Afternoon Tea is served in the Conservatory between 4.00 and 6.00 pm.
Dinner is served between 7.00 - 9.00 p.m. Children’s meals are available earlier by arrangement.
